Judicial Watch sues for emails on Weiner laptop

Judicial WatchJudicial Watch announced today that it has sued the U.S. Department of Justice under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for all emails the FBI found on the laptop of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner.

Judicial Watch filed the suit after the Justice Department did not act on two FOIA requests (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No.1:18-cv-02105)).

Judicial Watch has a pretty good record of prying data out of government agencies. If they can get that cache of Clinton emails out, it may spell a lot of trouble for the Clintons. The political significance is limited, because the Clintons aren't likely to run again, or win the Democratic primary for President if they do. But the fallout on secondary targets like the corrupt elements of the FBI or past deals could still have a huge impact.
