Judicial Watch Sues DOJ for Failure to Release Declassified Documents

On August 1, Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against the DOJ for failing to release documents that were supposedly declassified by Donald Trump before he left office. Those documents were in regard to the “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation (if you can call making things up an investigation). An FOIA was filed in February, but the DOJ has refused to release them.

“The Obama-Biden Administration and Deep State spying on Trump and his associates is the worst government corruption scandal in American history,” Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said in a statement Monday. “And to make matters worse, the Biden DOJ simply refuses to release smoking gun documents about this corruption that the American people have an absolute right to see!”

Trump issued a memo on Jan. 19, 2021 declassifying materials in a binder that the DOJ gave to the White House in December 2020 on the “Crossfire Hurricane” probe. However, the binder’s materials never saw the light of day after the DOJ sought to issue redactions over privacy concerns, as detailed in a memo on Jan. 21, 2021 authored by then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who told the DOJ he would return the records.

The problem that Judicial Watch faces here is that this is Washington DC. The Swamp protects itself and does not want to allow anything into the light of public scrutiny. Some of the judges in the DC Circuit Court tend to be left leaning, so will the lawsuit by Judicial Watch go anywhere? It may be an uphill battle unless the judge assigned to their case is objective enough to follow the law.

“Well, you know, the swamp is pretty deep. But when we look at this, this particular president was all about draining the swamp. When he was running, that was more of a campaign slogan. When he got there, he realized that not only was the swamp very deep, but they would fight back.”

Yes, they’re fighting back, trying to claw their way out of the deep holes they have dug for themselves. But there’s a huge comet coming to light the way to the truth. They need to prepare for it. Judicial Watch is only one tiny part of it.
