Judicial Watch is making a stand to uncover why Hillary Clinton is “such a reviled figure” in America.
The conservative watchdog group is arguing a case before a federal appeals court Friday to unseal draft indictments of Clinton from the Whitewater scandal of the 1990s.
Judicial Watch will be in court tomorrow morning, suing for the draft indictments of Hillary — we want to see them! https://t.co/8UN82eh0If

“Long before Benghazi, long before emails and clever Clinton Foundation shakedowns, there was Whitewater. The Clintons—abetted by the slack intellectual standards of American media—have succeeded in putting over the argument that Whitewater “was about nothing.” The Judicial Watch case proves otherwise,” Micah Morrison wrote Thursday for the group’s “Investigative Bulletin.”
Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act request in March 2015 and then filed a lawsuit in October 2015 attempting to get the National Archives and Records Administration to release copies of the documents.
“The court ruled that grand jury secrecy and Mrs. Clinton’s right to personal privacy barred disclosure of the draft indictments,” Morrison wrote. But Judicial watch contends that since there has been an “enormous amount of grand jury and other information already made public,” that “there is no secrecy or privacy left to protect.”
According to Judicial Watch, the documents are reportedly drafts of indictments alleging that Hillary Clinton withheld and provided false information to investigators of alleged fraudulent real estate dealings by her and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
According to Judicial Watch:
The allegations are well known to aficionados of financial crime: with Gov. Bill Clinton running Arkansas, Mrs. Clinton leveraged her work at the Rose Law Firm into a series of transactions on behalf of a corrupt financial institution, Madison Guaranty Savings & Loan, run by a longtime Clinton crony, James McDougal. Among the transactions was a document drafted by Mrs. Clinton to conceal a series of fraudulent loans that were used to deceive federal bank examiners. Winning the White House, Mrs. Clinton and her allies engaged in a long-running cover-up.
Between 1996 and 1998, the Office of Independent Counsel drew up a series of draft indictments of Mrs. Clinton. In the end, overwhelmed by the Lewinsky perjury case and stymied by Clinton stonewalls, prosecutors decided not to bring charges against Mrs. Clinton.
The watchdog group notes, however, that the evidence against the former First Lady was “significant.”
“And the case sheds light as well on the mystery of why Mrs. Clinton is such a polarizing figure,” Morrison concluded. “Whitewater presents significant evidence that she was a crook, and got away with it.”
A three-judge federal appeals panel in Washington, D.C. court is set to hear the arguments from Judicial Watch on Friday morning.

I’m not a lawyer, but I’m confident with the amount of evidence against Hillary, I could even get a conviction.

DOJ operates free of White House sway! Trump is not Obama! I may not be happy but Trump is obeying our guidelines and laws!

Until Clinton and those like her are indicted and sentenced for their many crimes, I no longer believe in the rule of law in America. Period

In case anyone wonders, letting her off the hook at that time emboldened her and those who made those decisions are complicit
