The “glitch” is back.
Remember when the Obama State Department claimed that a “glitch” was responsible for deleting several minutes of incriminating evidence from a press briefing where an Obama Administration spokesperson admitted to a Fox News reporter that the Administration was lying about the Iran deal? We later uncovered an internal State Department “sensitive” memo detailing “evidence of purposeful editing” through our Freedom Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit.
Now in new court filings the deep state DOJ is claiming another “glitch”.
If you will recall, when the ACLJ filed a FIOA lawsuit against the DOJ over the infamous Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting, the DOJ failed to turn over AT LEAST one key document. That document showed that within minutes of top officials in the AG’s office getting media inquiries about then-Attorney General Lynch’s surreptitious meeting with former President Clinton (in the final days of the DOJ/FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton), the DOJ alerted the FBI to the growing scandal.
As we told you, we have gone back to court demanding the missing documents from the DOJ and questioning the adequacy of the DOJ’s search for responsive documents.
Late last week, the DOJ responded in federal court claiming that a “glitch” in its “sophisticated” software prevented it from locating that document.
First, to claim the software system is “sophisticated” and then blame a “glitch” is oxymoronic. What is more, it didn’t even attempt to explain the so-called “glitch” in technical terms. It only stated that after learning (from ACLJ court filings) that there was a missing document, it discovered and fixed the “glitch” and that no other responsive documents were withheld by the “glitch” – just the one we already knew about.
If this isn’t a combination of “the dog ate my homework” and “nothing to see here,” I don’t know what is.
Rest assured, we will continue fighting the deep state DOJ in court over its constant stream of excuses. We will also continue fighting to ensure that the numerous pages of redactions are brought to the public light.
The American people deserve more than grade school excuses. They deserve the truth – unredacted. They deserve to know what exactly happened on that tarmac between President Clinton and AG Lynch, and they deserve to know what the DOJ and FBI knew and what they did about it. Our next filing in this case is in just a matter of weeks, and we’ll keep you informed.
