Judge Rules In Favor Of Clinton Email Releases
As if the world isn’t tired enough regarding the email controversy that has dragged on it seems like forever. In this latest chapter, a federal judge, Amit Metha state that it would be both unwise and potentially risky to order the government to do a quick release of some of the 329 emails in question. These emails contain data regarding the Benghazi attack of 2012.
Mehta is a judge for the US District Court for the District of Columbia and an Obama appointee. Mehta emphasized that the emails, along with tens o fthousands of other emails are already on the slate to be released in February 2016.
The right wing watchdog group Judicial Watch is behind the push to get the emails released and have filed at least 20 lawsuits regarding them.
It appears that Clinton just can’t rid herself of this nonsense and the Republicans who continually get embarrassed by attacking her just won’t let up.
The judge, thus siding with the State Dept. is showing that there is already a remedy to the emails being released and any rush to do so could end up in jeopardy.
It’s apparent that the email controversy and continued dogging of Clinton’s heels is nothing more than a long standing and underhanded attempt to derail her chances of running for president. Should Clinton drop out of the race, it’s better than even money that the Republicans would drop all inquiries like a hot potato.
In the end it’s going to bite the Republicans in the backside when the public reviews their attempts and why they’ve spent so much money, time, and effort to go after Clinton, when there are still menaces against the country far worse than whether an official misused her email account by incompetence or negligence. History will show exactly the steps they’ve taken and what their true motivation is.
In the meantime, the public and press and Republicans are going to have to wait to see what is exactly in these emails that the government concluded contained no top secret information. What the emails might reveal is what Clinton and others on her staff as well as her colleagues and constituents felt about a number of issues that would create a tsunami of embarrassment for all involved, especially those tidbits of gossip that people have tendency to spill when they think no one is watching.
The suspense, if any, will be answered in February.
