Another ACLJ Win in Court Against the Comey-led FBI

By Jordan Sekulow1510853379430

As we reported this past summer, the ACLJ submitted FOIA requests to the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI for records regarding former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s secret meeting on a tarmac at an airport in Phoenix, Arizona, during the midst of the Hillary Clinton investigation.

In response to our requests, the then Comey-led FBI told us that no responsive records were found. Soon thereafter, we learned – through documents produced by the DOJ which included communications with the FBI – that there were, in fact, FBI records responsive to our request. Only after the ACLJ publicly excoriated the FBI for lying to us did the FBI “reopen” our case and inform us that – surprise – “records potentially responsive to your request may exist.”

Even after that, the FBI bureaucracy did not produce the promised documents in a timely manner, further stonewalling and delaying. So we filed yet another federal lawsuit to force the FBI to comply with the law.

Now through that lawsuit in federal court we are finally getting answers.

In a court-ordered filing, the FBI has agreed to produce all documents responsive to our FOIA request concerning the Clinton-Lynch meeting to the ACLJ no later than November 30, 2017.

Once we obtain the documents, we will determine whether the FBI has sufficiently complied with its obligations under FOIA by producing all responsive documents and fully supporting any redactions made. We are already back in federal court over warrantless redactions in a similar case against the DOJ bureaucracy on the same matter. (It appears to have become the regular practice of bureaucratic federal agencies to produce only heavily redacted documents responsive to FOIA requests in an attempt to continue to conceal facts and information the public is entitled to under FOIA).

You can find our full timeline breakdown and analysis of the documents we already received on the surreptitious Clinton-Lynch meeting from the DOJ here and even the actual documents themselves here.

Demanding accountability is not futile. We can win. We just have to be willing to take action. In this case, it took filing a federal lawsuit against the DOJ and the FBI.

We will continue to keep you informed as these critical cases progress.

We can defeat the deep state bureaucracy and the Obama-era corruption. We can win. We can force accountability. But we need you. Take action with us.
