Obama White House Kept Close Track of FOIA Request About Hillary Clinton's Emails -- A Request That, Coincidentally Enough, Wound Up Being Improperly Denied by the State Department

A scandal-free administration.

Emails released to Judicial Watch show for the first time that the Obama White House kept tabs on a FOIA request for information on Hillary Clinton’s emails that was improperly rejected by the State Department.

The State Department claimed in May 2013 in response to the FOIA request that no responsive records existed. The agency’s internal watchdog later determined that denial to be 'inaccurate and incomplete' since Clinton used a personal email account to conduct State Department business.

"These documents suggest the Obama White House knew about the Clinton email lies being told to the public at least as early as December 2012," says Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton.

The Obama White House kept tabs on a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for information on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email accounts that the State Department improperly denied, according to newly released emails.

The emails, which were provided to Judicial Watch, show for the first time that the Obama White House was aware of the Clinton-related FOIA request, which the liberal watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) submitted to the State Department in December 2012.


The State Department denied the request in May 2013, claiming that no responsive records existed. That despite officials at the State Department, the White House and even President Obama himself knowing that Clinton used a personal email account for government business.

The State Department's inspector general determined in a report released on Jan. 7, 2016 that the State Department’s denial of the CREW request was "inaccurate and incomplete."

It is not clear from the emails why the White House was interested in the request. But Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton has a theory.

"These documents suggest the Obama White House knew about the Clinton email lies being told to the public at least as early as December 2012," he said in a statement.

"The Obama White House orchestrated the Clinton email cover-up," he added.
