Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice on November 2,2018 for all records of communications involving any investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) into the Clinton Foundation of Investigation (FBI) into the Clinton Foundation Cv-02536)) -
All records of communication [between January 1, 2016 and December 31,2016] including but not limited to emails (whether sent or received on government or non-.government-mail accounts), text messages or instant chats, sent between officials in the offices 0f the FBI Director, Deputy Director and General Counsel on the one hand, and officials in the offices of the Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General and/or Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General on the other hand, regarding the closure or possible closure of an investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
A Judicial Watch FOlA lawsuit directly to the disclosure of the Clinton email system in 2015 – In August 2016, a related Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit broke open the Clinton Foundation scandal story the release of documents showing pay-to-play activity. An April 2009 document shows controversial Clinton foundation official Doug Band pushed for a job for an associate. In the email, Band tells Hillary Clinton’s former aides at the State Department (Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin) that it is “important to take care of [Redacted].” Band is reassured by Abedin that “Personnel has sending him options.” Band was co-founder of Teneo Strategy with Bill Clinton and a top official of Clinton Foundation, including its Clinton Global Initiative. Included in that document production was a 2009 email in which Band directs Abedin and Mills to put Lebanese-Nigerian billionaire and Clinton Foundation donor Gilbert in touch with the State Department’s “substance person on Lebanon. Band notes that Chagoury is “key guy there [Lebanon] and to us, and he insists that Abedin call Ambassador Jeffrey Feltman to connect him to Chagoury. Judicial Watch, since, has uncovered many other instances of seeming pay-to-play and favoritism for the Clinton Foundation at the Clinton Slate Department. in January 20l6, the FBl reportedly began investigating the Clinton Foundation, as it expanded from the email Probe. In October 2016, FBI agents were told they, did not have “enough evidence to move forward” with their investigation of the Foundation.
In 2018, a Justice Department inspector general (OIG) report, detailed evidence that the Obama Department of Justice sought to shut down the FBI investigation of the Clinton foundation.
“McCabe [fired former deputy director of the FBI] told the OIG that on August 12, 2016, he received a telephone call from PADAG [Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General, likely Matthew Axelrod] regarding the FBI’s handling of the CF [Clinton Foundation] investigation (the ‘PADAG call’). McCabe said that PADAG expressed concerns about FBI agents taking-overt steps in the CF investigation during the presidential campaign. According to McCabe, he pushed back, asking, ‘are you telling me that I need to shut down a validly predicate^ investigation?’ McCabe told us that the conversation was Very dramatic’ and he never, had a similar confrontation like the PADAQ call with a high-level Department; in his entire FBI career.
Reportedly, senior Justice Department officials refused FBI requests to issue subpoenas on Clinton Foundation issues in 2016. In January 2018, reports surfaced the FBI reportedly launched a new investigation into potential Clinton Foundation pay-to-play but there has been no indication it is proceeding. In October 18,2018, Representative Bob Goodlatte, chairman, of the House Judiciary Committee, announced the release of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s disciplinary tile, which “reminds us how the Obama Justice Department sought to shut down the Clinton Foundation investigation during the 2016 presidential election. “The record shows the Obama Justice Department suppressed a public corruption investigation into the Clinton Foundation,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It’s time for the Justice Department to stop shielding, the Clintons and produce records on this miscarriage of justice. This is part of JW ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation’s pay-to-play politics that involves multiple F01A lawsuits seeking government documents from Hillary Clintons illicit email system, as well as records related to the intersection of the State Department and e Clinton Foundation. Judicial Watch’s work also served basis for the breakthrough book Clinton Cash.

Judicial Watch seems to be the only organization that wants to see the truth in government. The fact that everyone of the inquiries is met with opposition or is ignored completely, so that they ind up in FOI lawsuits is telling. So much corruption has been brought to light so far, yet the DOJ seems to ignore the facts. It is no wonder that people even question their own party. The only things constant ingovernment is corruption and secrecy.

By stonewalling JW's FOIA requests the DOJ is forcing JW to spend LOTS of $$$ on lawyers and other legal entities.

The fed, of course, has virtually unlimited funds -- and fancy lawyers -- so they are playing to drain JW's reserves, realizing they, the feds, can never run out of money.

They never do run out of money.
How does a government that is so far in debt never run out of money?
Wouldn't we all love to be able to do that.

I don’t want to believe that, but, in government politics, you can’t count on anything. Especially fairness. The corruption is so ingrained, they think they are all above the law.

They don't think that they are above the law. They know that they are above the law. They are the law, as it suits them.
And no one dares try to change it.
And most are complicit. To have one, just one obama Clinton cabal member go down? They all go down. And no one dares even to tempt that.
