Judicial Watch’s President Tom Fitton is growing increasingly more frustrated with the time it takes to get his Freedom of Information Act requests fulfilled. Fitton claims that most of the FOIA cases he requests from the Trump administration are handled by mostly Obama holdovers, that don’t want to see the information released.
From The Daily Caller:
Those holdovers, he told The Daily Caller News Foundation, are telling Judicial Watch it will be years before it can get former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails. “Frankly,” Fitton told TheDCNF, “we should be waiting just a few months for them to get their act together.”
While the media clearly only cares about it’s own anti-Trump agenda, Fitton makes a very good point:
And the media, he charged, are missing the biggest scandal. “There’s been no evidence there’s been any collusion, like the left likes to fantasize about, between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” Fitton told TheDCNF, “but there is evidence that the Trump team was spied upon by the Obama administration using this ‘Russia connection,’ which is really weak, as a pretext.”
Fitton is appalled by the newly unfolding crimes of misuse of classified information and the unlawful leaking of this information to the media by President Donald Trump’s opponents inside the government.
Fitton insisted that the problem can be mitigated by lessening the size and scope of the federal government.
