Despite promises to voters that he would investigate Hillary Clinton’s criminal email scandal, the Trump administration this week continued an old Obama policy — refusing in court to turn over Clinton emails:
At a hearing in Washington on Monday at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, the State Department said it will continue to seek a dismissal of Judicial Watch’s case attempting to force them to locate Clinton’s emails.
Judicial Watch, along with public interest law firm Cause of Action, have been fighting for the State Department to retrieve the emails for more than a year. Unfortunately, Trump hasn’t brought the transparency they were hoping for:
“What’s surprising is the Trump Administration is continuing the Obama Administration’s legal strategy to obstruct and defend Hillary Clinton’s email practices,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said after the hearing. “This is an example, in my view, of the ‘deep state’ still running things, in many respects.” The “deep state” can be most broadly defined as the unelected federal bureaucracy.
Clearly, Obama’s “shadow government” is still in control.
