Judicial Watch isn’t waiting to see what Congress comes up with in any future investigations of the deep state intel leaks slamming Trump’s administration. The non-profit government watchdog just announced a blistering lawsuit aimed at gaining access to information they previously requested through FOIA, but have so far been ignored on.
Here’s what the lawsuit demands, via Judicial Watch.
Any and all records regarding, concerning, or related to the investigation of retired Gen. Michael Flynn’s communications with Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak between October 1, 2016 and the present.
This request includes, but is not limited to, any and all related warrants, affidavits, declarations, or similar records regarding the aforementioned investigation.
For purposes of clarification, please find enclosed a CNN report regarding the investigation, which cites information that was provided to CNN by members of the Intelligence Community.
The last line there is key. It draws clear attention to the fact that someone in the deep state has been leaking information to their mainstream media allies. This while the fed keeps the general public in the dark as to what is really going on.
In its announcement of the lawsuit Judicial Watch went on to discuss Trump’s claim that the deep state, under Obama’s watch, was spying on his campaign at Trump Tower.
“President Trump is on to something. The Obama-connected wiretapping and illegal leaks of classified material concerning President Trump and General Flynn are a scandal,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Judicial Watch aims to get to the truth about these crimes and we hope the Trump administration stands with us in the fight for transparency.”
