Lawsuit Seeks Public Access to Email Depositions

Now that the election is over, it’s time the American public got down to the business of fair and balanced investigations into some of what came to light over the past two years.

With what promises to be a more transparent and amenable incoming Administration, Judicial Watch announced Monday it is seeking access to the depositions of Clinton aides and State Department officials. The lawsuit filed by JW under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is requesting information about Clinton deputy chief of staff and controversial figure, Huma Abedin.

Judicial Watch argues that “even though the election is over, the news media and the public continue to monitor and follow the proceedings in this case.” At least 19 media committees are joining in and supporting the move to grant public access to the videotaped depositions.

Prior to now, the audiovisuals and their transcripts were sealed from public consumption to prevent misuse and unfair influence during the election. But, that threat is no longer at issue and many questions remain unanswered in the hearts and minds of Americans.

“The public and the media have a right to see these deposition videos of top officials from the Clinton State Department,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The courts and the continued work of Judicial Watch is clearly the only hope of bringing sunlight into the Clinton email issue and completing the public record.”

The State Department is expected to file a motion to block the request.
