Tired of Hillary Clinton’s Cover-up and Stonewalling, Judicial Watch Just Raised the Stakes

John Kerry Tongue

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Anti-American Democrat John Kerry, the Obama Regime’s Secretary of State, is getting sued by government watchdog group Judicial Watch, the group announced on Thursday. The purpose of the suit is to force Kerry to comply with the Federal Records Act by retrieving official government emails stored on Hillary Clinton’s secretive and private email server in her mansion.

[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]In the lawsuit, Judicial Watch argues the following:

The Clinton emails are agency records subject to the [Federal Records Act (FRA)] and the State Department’s failure to retain, manage, and search these agency records has compromised the Department’s retention of records that concern or relate to Secretary Clinton and other high level State Department officials who used non-“state.gov” email addresses.

As noted by Judicial Watch, the Federal Records Act stipulates:

Agencies may only dispose of records on terms approved by the Archivist of the United States, who is head of the National Archives and Records Administration (“NARA”). … This process is the exclusive procedure by which all federal records may be disposed of or destroyed. …

 

The FRA imposes a direct responsibility on an agency head to take steps to recover any records unlawfully removed.

“Secretary Kerry is in cover-up mode for Hillary Clinton,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told The Washington Times.

Hillary Clinton, who violated her own policy prohibiting official government communications on private email systems while the Obama Secretary of State, pulled a Lois Lerner in December 2014, by deciding which emails were appropriate to turn over to the State Department, rather than allow authorities to perform the search.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]In addition to “Emailgate,” the scandal-plagued Clinton is in the middle of a firestorm because of potential quid pro quo arrangements at the Clinton Foundation, in which tens of millions of dollars were contributed by foreign governments in exchange for political favors from the U.S. government while Clinton headed the Obama State Department.
