Judge to State Department: Look Harder For Hillary Clinton's Benghazi Emails

I can't believe we still have to rely on judges when, supposedly, we took over the government seven months ago.

The Deep State is its own country with its own laws.

A federal judge has ordered the State Department to search the "state.gov" email accounts of Hillary Clinton aides Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and Jacob Sullivan for records related to Benghazi, as part of a watchdog’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

U.S. District Judge for the District of Columbia Amit Mehta made the call Tuesday, describing the FOIA lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch in March 2015 as "a far cry from a typical FOIA case."

He noted that "Secretary Clinton used a private e-mail server located in her home, to transmit and receive work-related communications during her tenure as Secretary of State."

The State Department argued that further searching was likely to be unfruitful.

But Mehta wrote that the State Department "has not, however, searched the one records system over which it has always had control and that is almost certain to contain some responsive records: the state.gov email server."

Gee I guess they forgot to check that.
