Court opens the door for Trump’s AG to act in Hillary’s email scandal…

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has made a decision that now opens the door for President-elect Donald Trump’s Attorney General designate, Sen. Jeff Sessions, to get involved in Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.  A scandal which rocked the nation where Hillary used an unsecured, private computer server in her home for classified government information and repeatedly lied about the matter under oath, calling it an “honest mistake.” The decision even goes so far as to state the law requires that the U.S. Attorney General involve himself in the proceedings. The congressional vote confirming Sen. Sessions could occur as early as January 10, 2017, though Democrats have promised a battle to defeat the nomination.

This decision was brought about by means of a lawsuit filed by the Conservative watchdog group,  Judicial Watch, over the emails and their release to the American public. The suit was brought forth in May of 2015 after the State Department refused to take any action against Hillary, even after John Kerry was notified of Hillary’s unlawful actions regarding the removal and destruction of the emails. He simply refused to refer the case to the Attorney General as is the requirement according to federal law. Kerry instead took it upon himself to allow State Department officials to pick and choose what information could be withheld or released to the public with regard to these emails.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said –

The courts seem to be fed up with the Obama administration’s refusal to enforce the rule of law on the Clinton emails. Today’s appeals court ruling rejects the Obama State Department’s excuses justifying its failure to ask the attorney general, as the law requires, to pursue the recovery of the Clinton emails. This ruling means that the Trump Justice Department will have to decide if it wants to finally enforce the rule of law and try to retrieve all the emails Clinton and her aides unlawfully took with them when they left the State Department.

Previously a lower court had ruled that this was a moot point despite all evidence point to current Secretary of State, John Kerry’s failure to comply with the Federal Records Act in the attempts to recover Hillary’s deleted emails. Judicial Watch appealed the decision to a higher court, stating that according to the law, “If an agency head becomes aware of ‘any actual, impending, or threatened unlawful removal … or destruction of records,’ he or she ‘shall notify the Archivist … and with the assistance of the Archivist shall initiate action through the attorney general for the recovery of records.'” Judicial Watch specifically requested the court to rule that the State Department be ordered to release a significant portion of the emails in question specifically because they pertain to government “misconduct.”

The appeals court ruled:

“Appellants sought the only relief provided by the Federal Records Act – an enforcement action through the attorney general. But nothing the department did (either before or after those complaints were filed) gave appellants what they wanted. Instead of proceeding through the attorney general, the department asked the former secretary to return her emails voluntarily and similarly requested that the FBI share any records it obtained. Even though those efforts bore some fruit, the department has not explained why shaking the tree harder – e.g., by following the statutory mandate to seek action by the attorney general – might not bear more still. It is therefore abundantly clear that, in terms of assuring government recovery of emails, appellants have not ‘been given everything [they] asked for.’ Absent a showing that the requested enforcement action could not shake loose a few more emails, the case is not moot.”

The appeals court has reversed this lower court’s decision to dismiss the case and has returned it for further work. This decision is offering President-elect Trump the opportunity to intervene in this highly controversial case.
