Fitton: At Least 18 Classified Emails Found on Anthony Weiner’s Laptop

Last week, we revealed that there are at least 18 classified emails in the 806 documents recently produced by the State Department from the FBI’s investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s illicit email system. The emails were found on the laptop of Anthony Weiner, who is the estranged husband of former Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

Fitton: Judicial Watch Sues FBI for Records About Removal of Alleged Anti-Trump FBI Official from Mueller Team

The FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) are engulfed in a rule of law crisis because of new revelations of evident bias among FBI officials and key DOJ prosecutors. Recently, we exposed that Andrew Weissmann, a top Mueller special counsel deputy, has anti-Trump bias. And last week, we were in the forefront of a related scandal about an anti-Trump bias infecting the top echelons of the FBI.

Fitton: We Sue Office of Director of National Intelligence for Failure to Produce Legally Mandated Report on Russia’s Election Meddling

We are a year into the Trump administration, and we’re still trying to get a grip on why the agencies that report to him continue to slow-walk the release of information the public rightfully should have. The latest instance involves alleged Russian meddling in European elections, something we think the administration would want to be known.

Fitton: Clinton Emails Reveal Additional Mishandling of Classified Information

We continue to accumulate details of the communications abuses in the Hillary Clinton State Department, but after you read the following report pause and consider the big picture. For four years the inner workings of her department were porous to prying eyes. Is it just a coincidence that Hillary Clinton’s diplomatic efforts so often failed?

Fitton: Judicial Watch Sues for Info on Dakota Access Pipeline Opposition from Obama Admin

Judicial Watch is leading the way in uncovering the corrupt maneuvering by the Obama administration to impose its leftist agenda on our country. As Obama holdovers and the federal Deep State continue to push this agenda even now in the Trump administration, our work is essential. A good example of this is our new lawsuit on the Obama team’s alliance with radical environmentalists to halt work on the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Fitton: Judicial Watch Pursues James Comey FBI Scandal

Former FBI Director James Comey sits in a firestorm of his own making. By his own admission, he created and then leaked memos to ensure that a special counsel would be appointed to investigate President Trump. It looks as if Comey broke government rules and laws as part of his machinations. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is unlikely to investigate his friend Comey, so it is up to Judicial Watch to do the work of the Justice Department, FBI, Congress, and the media.

Fitton: Justice Department Blacks Out Talking Points on Lynch-Clinton Tarmac Meeting

We have begun to see how the Trump administration responds over time to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) queries, especially our requests regarding shady dealings in the Obama administration. We aren’t encouraged. One must wonder if Obama holdovers at the Department of Justice (DOJ) are still calling the shots, or whether President Trump’s appointees simply don’t care about battling government corruption and enforcing the rule law.

Fitton: Judicial Watch Launches Election Integrity Lawsuit

Last week saw the first official meeting of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, which is under attack from leftists who want to preserve the ability to steal elections. Also last week, Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit that could serve to get key information about the integrity of election rolls in Maryland (one of the states “resisting” inquiries from the Advisory Commission on Election Integrity).

Tom Fitton: Judicial Watch Pursues James Comey Records

Judicial Watch is focusing on James Comey, the former FBI Director who spirited away government documents then arranged for the contents of those documents to be leaked to the media to force the appointment of a special prosecutor. We aim to get the bottom of both the records’ removal and the leaks to the media, then hold accountable the persons involved

Fitton: Judicial Watch Seeks Docs on Obama White House Spying Scandal

With the news last week of the unprecedented spying on Americans by the National Security Agency under President Obama’s direction, it has become even more critical that we get to the truth about any Obama administration surveillance of Donald Trump and his campaign and the subsequent illegal leaking of classified information in an effort to undermine the Trump administration.
