Tom Fitton is demanding to know if Judicial Watch has been “lied to again” by the State Department and the FBI.
The president of the watchdog group is questioning previous information they were given on the number of Hillary Clinton’s emails that were found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop computer.
Former FBI Director James Comey appeared to contradict the original figures during his interview on ABC Sunday.
“Last year, the FBI uncovered 72,000 pages of documents Clinton attempted to delete or did not otherwise disclose. The State Department had been processing the documents at a rate that would have required Judicial Watch and the American people to wait until at least 2020 to see all the releasable Clinton material,” Judicial Watch reported in a January update.
“The court also ordered the State Department to identify and explain the basis for all documents withheld in full from both the 55,000 pages of emails turned over by Clinton and the 72,000 pages of records recovered by the FBI which have been processed thus far by April 6, 2018,” the group stated.
But Comey told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in Sunday’s interview that there were actually hundreds of thousands of Clinton’s emails found on the laptop belonging to Weiner, the disgraced former congressman who was married to Clinton aide Huma Abedin and was convicted of sexting a minor.
“It’s led your critics to say that the FBI, for several weeks, sat on the knowledge that they had several thousand Hillary Clinton emails,” the ABC host questioned Comey.
“Yeah, more than several thousand, hundreds – ” the fired FBI chief began.
“Hundreds of thousands,” Stephanopoulos interjected.
” -of thousands on Anthony Weiner’s laptop,” Comey concluded.
Fitton did not miss the discrepancy and even called on President Trump to get involved.
So Comey says “hundreds of thousands” of Clinton emails on Weiner laptop. This is news to @JudicialWatch–we were told 72,000 pages of documents. Have we been lied to again by State and FBI? @RealDonalTrump should ask! https://t.co/lBWRiTFH9u
