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

The Oxford English Dictionary defines the word spying as “to collect information about something to use in deciding how to act.” Which is what it appears the FBI did to the Trump campaign under former Director James Comey. And yet, it appears Mr. Comey hasn’t read the definition. On today’s show,

DOJ officials were briefed on the Steele Dossier months before the election, disproving the Left’s current narrative. More disturbing, they were well aware it was paid for by the Clinton campaign. Today on the show we discussed new testimony from DOJ official Bruce Ohr, in which Ohr admitted to...
