The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has made a decision that now opens the door for President-elect Donald Trump’s Attorney General designate, Sen. Jeff Sessions, to get involved in Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton:
“The courts seem to be fed up with the Obama administration’s refusal to enforce the rule of law on the Clinton emails. Today’s appeals court ruling rejects the Obama State Department’s excuses justifying its failure to ask the attorney general, as the law requires, to pursue the recovery of the Clinton emails. This ruling means that the Trump Justice Department will have to decide if it wants to finally enforce the rule of law and try to retrieve all the emails Clinton and her aides unlawfully took with them when they left the State Department.”
The appeals court has reversed this lower court’s decision to dismiss the case and has returned it for further work. This decision is offering President-elect Trump the opportunity to intervene in this highly controversial case.
