Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton: Congress 'AWOL' on ‘All Significant Investigations of Misconduct by Federal Gov’t.’

Congress has been “AWOL [absent without leave] on almost all significant investigations of misconduct by the federal government,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told CNSNews.com on Thursday.

Fitton made the comments after the conservative watchdog group made public296 pages of previously unreleased State Department records, including 44 emailsthat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton failed to turn over last year despite her sworn declaration that she had done so.

The emails “show [that] the Clinton Foundation, Clinton donors, and operatives worked with Hillary Clinton in potential violation of the law,” according to the conservative watchdog group, which currently has 18 active Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits.

Over the past four years, Judicial Watch has uncovered troves of new information dating back to 2009 on Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct government business and the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya while she was secretary of state that has apparently eluded seven congressional committees.

CNSNews.com asked Fitton if any members of Congress have been in contact with his group regarding these latest revelations.

We have not had any interest from members of Congress in our work,” Fitton replied.

Asked if he was surprised by that, Fitton answered: “No. Congress as an institution is AWOL on almost all significant investigations of misconduct by the federal government,” he said.

Not only are they totally corrupt to the core....they're also completely useless.

Clean house time in the US congress.

These assholes don't read the Constitution! and or ignore it! Nether does that POS in the W.H.!!!

I and 99.9% of Americans agree that Congress is AWOL, that's why Obama is running wild while they are gone on a long vacation,but if they were threatened with being voted out of the cushy jobs they have they would understand that they need to  be on the job like all Americans who have to work to pay bills and feed their families,Congress doesn't deserve the time off they are taking,if they did a great job while in session it would be ok to take a couple of weeks, but not all Summer.and we'll hear that they are out visiting every one in their districts but they need to prove it. 

Don't pay them. They have not earned their salary.

That is easy enough to say but, unfortunately, there is no way for us to do it.

They are bought and paid for now, it is time to replace them all with real Americans instead of these imposters...!!!

the obvious problem is we can write, speak ,protest and we know "nothing" will get done.  We have a deference in acquiescence that which is deplorable in this country.  So, how do we educate the uneducated? To really bring about change?

Worthless congress.  I have one congressman in our district that keeps reaching out to everyone over and over wanting to hear what we have to say.  He voted for amnesty, so I'm not voting for him again.

We need to vote every incumbent out and some how get rid of the democrats. Without life time pay. Let them be like REAL CITIZENS!

Bill & Hillary Clinton should have been looked up in Fort Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary 20 years ago!  They and their minions and the Democratic Party are guilty of dozens of felony crimes!  Most of Congress (both parties) have been asleep at the switch for decades!  Even if Donald Trump is elected and both houses of Congress remain with a majority of Conservatives, it will take many  leaders, that are strong, honest, Constitutional conservatives to turn the utter disaster in Washington DC, back to what the founding fathers had envisioned!  

Remind me what party is in control of Congress. It couldn't be Republicans because they represent conservatives and conservatives don't want what's being sold right now in our country. It has to be Republocrats , you know those two party people that are really one party.

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
