FULL TITLE: Federal Judge Warns Government Lawyers in Hillary Clinton Email Case: No FOIA Exemption for Political Expedience
WASHINGTONU.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth upbraided government attorneys in the Hillary Clinton email case, warning them that there is no FOIA exemption for political expedience, nor is there one for bureaucratic incompetence.
Lamberths comment came in his Aug. 22 decision approving Judicial Watchs request for expanded discovery in the non-profits lawsuit on former Secretary of State Hillary Clintons use of a private email system to conduct official business, and efforts by her, senior aides on her staff, and other federal officials to conceal the system.
Judicial Watch released the transcript of Lamberths decision Friday. Lamberth was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1987, and he has since presided over numerous important cases involving the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
The existence of the non-secured private Clinton email system became known due to Judicial Watchs Sept. 10, 2014, FOIA lawsuit seeking emails to and from her and her key aides.
When details of the private Clinton email system became known, it turned out that there were more than 55,000 messages to and from her and her aides, and that her attorneys had deleted more than 30,000 they deemed to be about personal matters, not official duties.
Dozens of classified documents were transmitted over the system, which FBI investigators said could have been compromised by foreign interests.

Uh-oh. Is he on suicide watch yet?
A sorry lot of lawyers need to go prison for this....
Royce Lambert, replacement for Ginsburg?
A replacement is needed for Chief Justice John Roberts
..... He appears to be dirty.
He is to old we need someone who is VERY YOUNG!!!! He was appointed by Reagan so he has to be up there in age!!!
Is she worked every day for all 8 years of Obama’s term that would be 50 ‘personal’ emails per day.
Also, appellate judges only have so much influence. Day to day justice - such as it is - is delivered by judges at the trial court level - Federal District Judges. Some become very well-known, like Lambert, because they are no nonsense and are very hard on government malfeasance and over-reach - such as in the present case.
Sure is a nice way of describing an attempted coup d’etat
The judge ought to be very careful so he doesn’t have an “accident”.
Royce Lamberth is 76.
Amy Coney Barrett is 47.
We need someone who is 27 LOL, LOL!!!
Yeah, I don't understand why the Justice Department has never gone after her for this.
If this were Microsoft and they JD had asked them to produce emails and MS said, "Whoops! Sorry!", trust me. It would not be put aside.
It could happen. There are no age requirements for Supreme Court justices.
Is Hillary Clinton being represented by government lawyers? If I commit bank fraud, can I get a government lawyer?
If you were Hillary Clinton, you probably could.
Yup!..and they should all write a book in prison about how they bought into the liberal agenda and forgot everything they were taught in law school.... Self reflection is a wonderful teacher....
The judge needs to re-read the Constitution.
It specifically says there that all Clinton files are to be kept secret for the next one million years. :-(
How many of those 30,000 “personal” emails were raw videos and other BLACKMAIL materials from Jeffrey Epstein at Pizza Gate Island?
“He is to old we need someone who is VERY YOUNG...:
I flunked grammer, but even I know the 2’s
to: also one o
Too: one extra o, means too much
Two: the number w went to casino.
I bet President Trump knows the 2’s.
