State Department Admits Benghazi Emails in New Batch of Hillary Emails to be Released

Government watchdog Judicial Watch announced on Thursday that among the new batch of almost 15,000 Hillary Clinton emails from her private server while Obama’s secretary of state are emails regarding the Islamic terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya where four Americans were left to die.

Judicial Watch obtained the new emails in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed on November 13, 2015, and new court orders have given the Obama State Department until September 13 to turn over the newly found Clinton emails.

The emails could be damaging for Clinton, who along with Obama and Susan Rice, concocted a lie that the terrorist attacks were ignited by an obscure YouTube video and were a “spontaneous” attack, a narrative created out of thin air to protect Obama from being complicit in allowing terrorism against the United States, just weeks before the 2012 re-election vote.

One of the Obama-Biden campaign slogans at the time was “Osama bin Laden is dead and GM is alive.” Another was “al Qaeda is on the run,” implying that the United States was winning the war on terrorism.

Since then a powerful movie, “13 Hours — The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” was released which chronicles how brave Americans were left to die by the Obama Regime, including Hillary Clinton, despite multiple calls for help.

Prior to the attacks, multiple requests for extra security were made by deceased American ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens directly to Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton ignored those requests.

Judicial Watch also reported on Thursday that Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s longtime personal assistant and closest confidant, is about to come front and center in the ongoing Clinton scandal drama:

Judicial Watch is also scheduled to receive documents from the State Department in a case arising out of FOIA lawsuit before Judge Emmet G. Sullivan that seeks records about the controversial employment status of Huma Abedin, former Deputy Chief of Staff to Clinton.  The lawsuit was reopened because of revelations about the system. (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:13-cv-01363)). Judge Sullivan has now issued a court order stating:

[T]he State Department shall release all remaining documents responsive to Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act request by no later than September 30, 2016.

The 14,900 new Clinton emails were uncovered as a result of separate Judicial Watch litigation seeking all of Mrs. Clinton’s work related emails.  At a status hearing this week, U.S. District Court Judge James E. Boasberg ordered the State Department to report to the Court the volume of documents reviewed and be prepared to commit to a production schedule at a further status hearing on September 23, 2016.

“It is astonishing that Hillary Clinton tried to delete and hide Benghazi emails and documents. No wonder federal courts in Florida and DC are ordering the State Department to stop stalling and begin releasing the 14,900 new Clinton emails,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
