Fitton: Get-Trump Fever Creating Rule of Law Crisis

This has been an extraordinary last few weeks. It began with an abusive raid on the home and law office of President Trump’s long-time attorney Michael Cohen. And it ended with disclosures from the disgraced former FBI Director’s anti-Trump book and the Department of Justice Inspector General’s report released last week regarding the corrupt behavior of fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

Fitton: Judicial Watch Sues for More George Soros Documents

Hungarian-American George Soros became a billionaire from hedge funds he started, and also from short-selling pounds sterling during England’s currency crisis in 1992. That maneuver earned him $1 billion and the appellation, “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England.”

Fitton: Judicial Watch Sues for Key FBI Text Messages

A miracle! Judicial Watch files a federal lawsuit, and the Justice Department finds the “missing” text messages! Of course, as we said all along, they were never missing in the first place.

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: Court Will Review Hillary Clinton Emails Despite Trump Administration Objections

Judicial Watch lawsuits forced the Obama administration to disclose Hillary Clinton’s use of unauthorized electronic devices to conduct government business nearly three years ago. Incredibly, we are still fighting for basic information to this day – and against agencies nominally being run by appointees of President Donald Trump.

A three-judge panel heard oral argument in our appeal (No. 16-5366) regarding our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit seeking the draft indictments of Hillary Clinton over what is popularly known as the Whitewater scandal.

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: Judge Forces the State Department to Open Up on Clinton Emails

Way too slowly, but surely, the government is revealing, under our pressure, what it knows about Hillary Clinton’s scandalous misuse of email. Last week United States District Judge James E. Boasberg ruled that the Department of State must make public

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.
