When Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the presidential battle, a great deal of Americans was expecting from him to start a complete investigation of her private email server for the duration of her time as Secretary of State. Sadly, it seems as though that will not be carried out in the end.
The Washington Examiner stated that even with Trump in office, State Department lawyers insist that they have no intent of hunting for formerly exposed Clinton emails. Throughout a hearing on Monday at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, the State Department reported that it will proceed with attempts to get conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch’s case trying to force them to track down Clinton’s emails.
The watchdog group still intends on using a small part of the Federal Records Act to pressure the State Department into locating the emails.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton was pretty clear about his organization’s disappointment regarding Trump’s lack of motivation to inspect the allegations.
“What’s unusual is that Trump’s Administration is carrying on with the legal strategy of Obama’s Administration’s to defend Hillary Clinton’s email practices,” Fitton stated after the hearing. “This is a case, of the ‘deep state’ still operating things, with all due respect.”
The next hearing, in this case, is set to be held on April 21.
