After the bitter disappointment of her unexpected Presidential election loss to Republican Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton probably thought that she could fade quietly from view, without any further consequences for the many crimes that she committed.
After all, in a moment of questionable charity, Donald Trump pledged that prosecuting Hillary Clinton for her email server infractions and other crimes would not be a priority during his administration. However, Trump doesn’t even need to change his mind (as he should), because federal courts just made a decision that could finally jail her.
A federal appeals court just came to the unanimous decision that two different agencies of the government failed to take sufficient measures to retrieve all the emails that Hillary Clinton infamously scrubbed from her private server using BleachBit.
Stated DC Circuit Court Judge Stephen Williams, “The Department has not explained why shaking the tree harder — e.g., by following the statutory mandate to seek action by the Attorney General — might not bear more still. Absent a showing that the requested enforcement action could not shake loose a few more emails, the case is not moot.”
Responded Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, “The courts seem to be fed up with the Obama administration’s refusal to enforce the rule of law on the Clinton emails. Today’s appeals court ruling rejects the Obama State Department’s excuses justifying its failure to ask the attorney general, as the law requires, to pursue the recovery of the Clinton emails. This ruling means that the Trump Justice Department will have to decide if it wants to finally enforce the rule of law and try to retrieve all the emails Clinton and her aides unlawfully took with them when they left the State Department.” Do you think it’s finally over for Hillary now?
