State Department Ordered to Expand Benghazi Email Hunt:

WASHINGTON (CN) – Adding a new wrinkle to litigation over the 2012 U.S. consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya, a federal judge put a spotlight Wednesday on emails sent by three aides to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“This matter is a far cry from a typical FOIA case,” the ruling by U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta says, abbreviating Freedom of Information Act. “Secretary Clinton used a private email server, located in her home, to transmit and receive work-related communications during her tenure as secretary of state.”

Mehta is presiding over a case in Washington filed two years ago by the conservative group Judicial Watch.

Though the State Department searched outside for records responsive to the Judicial Watch request, Mehta said it has yet to search its own email server.

He agreed with the watchdog Tuesday that the agency must search the state.gov email accounts of three former Clinton aides: former chief of staff Cheryl Mills, former deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin, and former director of policy planning Jacob Sullivan.

“If Secretary Clinton sent an e-mail about Benghazi to Abedin, Mills, or Sullivan at his or her state.gov e-mail address, or if one of them sent an e-mail to Secretary Clinton using his or her state.gov account, then State’s server presumably would have captured and stored such an e-mail,” the 10-page ruling states. “Therefore, State has an obligation to search its own server for responsive records.”

Ramona Cotca, the filing attorney for Judicial Watch, said government agencies typically search their own records first.

“That’s what has had us puzzled, and the great lengths its gone to,” Cotca said in a phone interview. “And the briefing, I mean this has been a process of over a year between the time we had briefing scheduled and by the time we briefed everything.”

The State Department’s previous search of 30,000 emails Clinton had provided to the agency in 2014 produced 342 records responsive to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request.

After asking the three Clinton aides to turn over emails and other records that were sent or received using a personal email account, the department turned up one more responsive record.

Mehta’s ruling says the State Department also searched emails from Clinton’s personal email server, which the FBI recovered during its investigation. In total, the department has turned more than 348 records to the conservative watchdog, 125 of which were produced in full.

Judicial Watch attorney Cotca called the ruling “correct,” and said she is “very happy” with it.

“It’s been surprising to me that the State Department has fought this hard just for something so basic, to search official email accounts with respect to the Benghazi attack,” she said. “But I think Judge Mehta definitely did the right thing. It’s not about how many records, but it’s a matter of making sure that they search everywhere where they’re supposed to search.”

The State Department did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment about the opinion.

Cotca said both parties must file a joint status report by Sept. 22, at which point the State Department must update the court on the progress of its search of the state.gov email server.

11 hours.

That's how long she testified in front of Trey Gowdy. Under fucking oath.

And if they find Benghazi on their own State Department servers, I wonder how they will blame her for that?

I think there is a point you're missing here - the State Dept never turned over the emails; it took a court order to force it - that's how long the "swamp" if you want to call it that...........protected her. From the Lynch meeting with Bill to the rest of it - you'd be howling if the same thing happened on the Trump side.

So if these emails prove perjury during the 11 hours I believe she lied to congress, then they can prosecute her ass, and they should.

Of course we'd be howling,just like you are now.

It is a bit of a long shot though,so don't blow your wad just yet.


"It's not clear that happened because the State Department had no structured system for archiving those emails, during Clinton's time there; depending on just how the department's system is configured, few if any such emails would remain, unless employees themselves had saved them."
