The Justice Department is defending former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from a motion to subpoena her private emails under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). “Such action is unnecessary and inappropriate under FOIA,” DOJ officials wrote in a legal briefing filed Thursday. Officials were responding to a case launched by Larry Klayman, the founder of the conservative watchdog group Freedom Watch. Klayman is asking the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., to subpoena Clinton’s computer server where she housed the private email address she used while serving in the State Department.
Clinton has turned over 55,000 pages of emails that she believed could be considered official government communications, but she deleted 30,000 emails that she considered to be personal. The Justice Department describes Klayman’s call for a subpoena as “speculation” in its brief. “Plaintiff provides no basis, beyond sheer speculation, to believe that former Secretary Clinton withheld any work-related emails from those provided to the Department of State,” the agency says.
The filing, first reported by Politico, is the first time that the Justice Department has addressed the government’s role in accounting for Clinton’s private emails.HILLARY CLAIMS SHE DELETED HER PERSONAL EMAIL.
IF THIS IS TRUE, THEN THE ONLY THINGS LEFT ON THE SERVER ARE OFFICIAL EMAILS, AND THEREFORE SHE HAS NO REASON NOT TO HAND IT OVER
THE FACT THAT THE DOJ IS DEFENDING HER MEANS THAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION KNOWS THERE MUST BE NASTY CRAP ON THE SERVER AND THEY WANT TO KEEP IT OUT OF VIEW.
THE FACT THAT HILLARY ONLY HANDED-OVER PRINT-OUTD OF THE EMAILS TO THE STATE DEPARTMENT ALSO PROVES SHE HAS SOMETHING TO HIDE; BY DELIBERATELY NOT GIVING THE ELECTRONIC/DIGITAL FILES SHE PREVENTS SEARCHING AND LOOKING FOR EMBEDDED THINGS AND PROOF THINSG MIGHT HAVE BEEN ALTERED.
I THINK HILLARY WOULD NOT HAVE GONE TO THESE EXTREME MEASURES -
- USING A NON .GOV ACCOUNT,
- HAVING IT ON A PRIVATE SERVER,
- DELETING 30,000 EMAILS,
- PRINTING OUT 30,000 EMAILS
SHE DESERVES TO BE RAKES OVER THE COALS, INTERROGATED, INDICTED, TRIED, CONVICTED - AND EXECUTED FOR TREASON.
