It can’t be emphasized enough that entrenched liberals all across the country in various courts and government agencies are actively fighting tooth and nail at every turn to stop Trump’s agenda.
The FBI, the CIA, various federal courts, the State Department, the EPA.
Everywhere you turn, Trump’s agenda faces an uphill battle thanks to Obama appointees that he put into power over the last 8 years.
On Monday, another Obama appointed judge got in the way of conservatives who are still trying to hold Hillary accountable for her email crimes.
From Western Journalism:
A federal judge who was nominated to his post by former President Barack Obama has called off the hunt for emails former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sent from her private server during her tenure in office.
On Thursday, Judge James E. Boasberg of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, rejected a demand that the State Department and U.S. archivist keep looking for more Clinton emails.
As reported by the Washington Examiner, the suit was based on the Federal Records Act, a federal law instituted in 1950 that, according to the National Archives, “establishes the framework for records management programs in Federal Agencies.”
From Washington Times:
A federal judge tossed a lawsuit Thursday that would have pushed the State Department and FBI to do more to try to track down Hillary Clinton’s emails, ruling the government has done all it reasonably could to locate the former secretary of state’s messages.
Two watchdog groups, Judicial Watch and Cause of Action, had sued in 2015 demanding the government recover all of Mrs. Clinton’s emails, saying she violated open-records laws by not preserving her messages.
“Those efforts went well beyond the mine-run search for missing federal records … and were largely successful, save for some emails sent during a two-month stretch. Even then, the FBI pursued every imaginable avenue to recover the missing emails,” wrote Judge Boasberg, an Obama appointee to the court.
Hillary Clinton broke federal law with her email practices. There’s no way around that.
From National Review:
There is no way of getting around this: According to Director James Comey (disclosure: a former colleague and longtime friend of mine), Hillary Clinton checked every box required for a felony violation of Section 793(f) of the federal penal code (Title 18): With lawful access to highly classified information she acted with gross negligence in removing and causing it to be removed it from its proper place of custody, and she transmitted it and caused it to be transmitted to others not authorized to have it, in patent violation of her trust. Director Comey even conceded that former Secretary Clinton was “extremely careless” and strongly suggested that her recklessness very likely led to communications (her own and those she corresponded with) being intercepted by foreign intelligence services.
And, Comey let her off the hook.
From Fox News:
Former FBI Director James Comey’s explanation for not prosecuting Hillary Clinton was always improbable. Now it seems impossible.
The Espionage Act makes it a crime to mishandle classified documents “through gross negligence” (18 USC 793-f). Punishment upon conviction carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison.
But a story in The Hill this week by John Solomon says a newly discovered document shows that then-FBI Director Comey authored a draft statement accusing Clinton of mishandling classified documents and being “grossly negligent.”
The document was confirmed by Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, who is chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. It was written a full two months before Clinton was ever interviewed by the FBI.
However, sometime later the words “gross negligence” were edited out with red lines. The words “extremely careless” were substituted. This would appear to show that Comey knew Clinton violated the law but subsequently resolved to conjure a way to exonerate her by altering the language.
Comey didn’t do a very good job. The two terms are largely synonymous under the law.
Republicans shouldn’t drop this. Keep fighting for what’s right.
