Victory! Federal judge -‘one tough cookie’ – agrees to re-open Hillary email lawsuit

Powered by Topple

A lawsuit filed by a watchdog group demanding access to Hillary’s Clinton‘s infamous private email server got new life after a federal judge’s decision last week.

Federal Judge Reggie B. Walton decided to reopen the the lawsuit, brought by Judicial Watch, a government watchdog group, Friday following agreement by the State Department that the documents kept on Clinton’s private server should be turned over, Fox News reported.

The court originally dismissed the case stating the documents didn’t exist.

“This is the first case that’s been reopened,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told The Washington Times. “It’s a significant development. It points to the fraud by this administration and Mrs. Clinton.”

On Fox’s “America’s News Room,” Judge Andrew Napolitano said Walton can now look at whether the former secretary of state’s emails were intentionally destroyed.

“He can order her husband, the former president of the United States, to deliver the server to him,” Napolitano said. “And he, a federal judge, can hire experts to examine the server. This is authority that Congressman [Trey] Gowdy’s committee lacks.”

He added that Walton’s courtroom is not one where the Clintons can automatically expect favorable treatment.

“This particular judge, who is apolitical, is one tough cookie,” he said. “This is probably the last judge in Washington D.C. she wanted this issue to be in front of.”
