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.

Removing everyone would be a good start but it has to be done by elections and with one half of the country on the side of Obama and his Criminal teams. Making a clean sweep is impossible. I think it would only take the people too remove a few by force out of office would open the eyes of the rest. After all if the people would escort them to the front door and give them a boot would be just what is needed.

I was in Washington DC when they were voting for the Obamacare Bill and with that many Americans in Washington DC they were not happy. We walked over to the House of Delegates and many were not there to talk to but when we started across the street there armed agents with AR15's and side armed they seems pretty up tight.

Most of the Congress were gone and the few that were there had there office doors locked and not taking visits. The only thing we heard was that someone said something about Barny Frank's being gay. I personally never heard that but that is what the media was saying on the news the next day.

About a few weeks later while standing by the walk way from the House Building to the Capital, when Piglosey was carrying her gavel when someone said someone had called out racist remark with media there the next day Piglosey was on the news say more bull crap that was never heard by anyone around there or none of the media cameras cought any remarks.

That is when I knew with out a doubt the Obamacare Bill was going to be pushed on us weither the American people wanted it or not. The Democrats have got there way for years because the GOP have been to lay backed and they knew they would be.

If you haven't seen Hillarys America you should make a point to see it and take a few of you democrat friends if you have any. The move has a lot if the true history of both party's who started them, and how they got started. When and how they both started going evil ways. After watching it I felt sad for my children and grandchildren knowing if the American people don't get out and vote what America is going to be like.

Americans better get use to being attacked on the streets and homes it's only starting and it's what the Democrats are counting on. If after watching this movie and if the people don't wake up then stealing the freedom of the people will be gone for ever.

Congress is COMPLICIT and may be criminally culpable with nearly all the corruption and unlawful acts of the Administration... why would they want to investigate something that may end up getting them indicted?

You sir, have nailed it to the tee!

NAAAAAWWWW......they're not AWOL, they're......................COMPLICIT in crime

Are they AWOL or are they complicit?

How about both... AWOL and Complicit

There needs to be hundreds of arrests and convictions of criminal politicians, their lawyers, CIA-FBI included for criminal incompetent state and Federal employees-hung in the public square until all are 6+' under. Those found guilty hung or shot. Traitors must be rounded up, including those in the military. Chest cavity shots for some of them bastards. This has gotten way out of hand. There needs to be a thinning out of criminal(s) and these traitors. To hell with jail time where the citizen have to financially support these bastards.That should send a clear message big time!

Congress has abdicated their authority to the Judicial and Executive Branches of the government.  Our two party system no longer works because they all in on the scam to fleece and control the  American citizens. Trump has flushed out the traitors, and citizens see them for what they are.

We cannot continue on our current path.

Did they forget they throw the conservative word around at Donald Trump and just like the rest of the BS they are above the law. Either we remove these bas%$rds or our country is gone. Do you want to continue to support these people's bank accounts while we all struggle. NOT ME I'M DONE!!!!!!!!!   TRUMP 2016

The current situation in government would have provided a NAZI victory if it were in WWII. WE are thoroughly infiltrated with a fifth column of muslim brotherhood NOW. Watch the documentary The muslim brotherhood, The GREAT DECEPTION and also the movie OSAMA, a true story of a small girl under the taliban for a real understanding of the MURDER CULT.

That is why I donate to Judicial Watch and not the RNC.

Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch are my favorite. They do more to shed light on our corrupt gov than anyone.

Hillary finally gets 'legal whooping' she deserves

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.”
