We have all seen federal judges go against the wishes of the President and his administration, in past few months.
Frequently, it’s been to undermine an executive order aimed at keeping America safe.
We can conclude that, despite the power and authority of the presidency, it can come undone by one radical and reckless judge.
However, in one recent case, most likely we are seeing an example of a single judge doing something that will actually make Trump supporters happy, despite protests from the administration.
According to our source, My Right America, Judicial Watch announced that a federal judge will personally review, today, in camera, redacted material from emails discussing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of iPads and iPhones during her tenure at the State Department. Judge Kollar-Kotelly also required the State Department to file an affidavit in which they will address why it should not have to search new Clinton emails recovered.
In addition, the court rejected arguments by the Tillerson State Department and its lawyers at the Sessions Justice Department. Also, the court will review the blacked-out information so as to better find out whether the government wrongdoing exception would require the release of the full emails.
In fact, the government misconduct exception prevents government agencies from withholding information that would shed light on government wrongdoing under the Freedom of Information Act.
“Hillary Clinton knowingly used an unsecure email system and risky iPads and smartphones to conduct classified and sensitive government business.” – declared Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
“It is frankly outrageous that Secretary Tillerson and Attorney General Sessions allow their agencies to cover up for and defend Hillary Clinton’s scandalous and potentially criminal conduct.”- he added.
You are surely wondering, why Tillerson and Sessions, who are both Trump loyalists, would want to prevent a court from seeing documents from the Clinton administration. And you have right to ask. It is clearly that the current administration has no love for Clinton. But, the problem is next.
If those documents are unredacted, sensitive material might leak to the public and vital information related to State Department activities might reach our enemies. Even though they hate Clinton, the current administration are considering the bigger picture.
