Judicial Watch is at war with the National Archives over the Freedom of Information Act fight to release the indictments of Hillary Clinton in the Whitewater case.
While they keep running into obstructionist brick walls, they are not backing down.
The National Archives maintains a release of the documents would violate grand jury secrecy as well as personal privacy of Hillary. FOIA request denied.
Judicial Watch has taken it to court and the decision is now in the hands of a federal judge.
What Judicial Watch has learned is that that the government has at least twelve versions of the the draft indictment of Hillary, including one “listing overt acts”.
Judicial Watch explains:
From the public record, we know that the Whitewater case centered around whether Hillary Clinton, while First Lady, lied to federal investigators about her role in the corrupt Arkansas S&L, concealed documents (including material under federal subpoena), and took other steps to cover-up her involvement. Prosecutors ultimately decided not to indict Hillary, concluding that they could not win the complicated, largely circumstantial case against such a high-profile figure.
The draft indictments range from three to forty pages—the former likely excerpts or “scraps” from longer documents, the Vaughn Index indicates. Some of the drafts doubtless are copies but many clearly are not. A total of 451 pages of draft indictments are being withheld by the Archives.
In its final brief in the case, Judicial Watch took a wrecking ball to the Archives’ grand jury secrecy and personal privacy claims. Judicial Watch noted “the truly enormous quantities of grand jury material already made public” in the independent counsel’s final report. Judicial Watch provided the court with a detailed list of grand jury and non-grand jury material that had already been made public. If there ever was a valid claim to grand jury secrecy in this closely scrutinized case, it is long gone.
Hillary Clinton is a career criminal. Because of fame and power, she has consistently wriggled out of situations that most Americans would have been prosecuted for, especially conservatives!
Her list is long! From concealing evidence in Whitewater decades ago to concealing evidence in ServerGate in the present!
It is a pattern! Judicial Watch will not stop until they get to the bottom of it.
