Hillary just got a bit of bad news. A judge has reportedly ordered both the DOJ and the State Department to reopen part of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
Four years overdue but maybe huge, will we finally see some justice done? So will there be a raid on the Clinton compound? I’m hoping for a no-knock FBI raid in the middle of the night on their house in Chappaqua, while they’re home. How about you?
Instant Hero: Judge Royce Lamberth tells DOJ & State Dept to reopen Clinton email case. Says their behavior “smacks of outrageous misconduct.” Also says they “colluded” to hoodwink the court to “skirt scrutiny” of HRC. https://t.co/t33LXprxeY

A U.S. judge ordered the Justice and State departments Thursday to reopen an inquiry into whether Hillary Clinton used a private email server while secretary of state to deliberately evade public records laws, and to answer whether the agencies acted in bad faith by not telling a court for months that they had asked in mid-2014 for missing emails to be returned.
The order risks reopening partisan wounds that have barely healed since Clinton’s unsuccessful 2016 presidential bid, but in issuing the order Thursday, U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth said the spirit of the Freedom of Information Act required it.
In a narrow but sharply worded 10-page opinion, Lamberth wrote that despite the government’s claimed presumption of transparency, “faced with one of the gravest modern offenses to government openness, [the Obama administration’s] State and Justice departments fell far short” of the law’s requirements in a lawsuit for documents.
Lamberth added that despite President Donald Trump’s repeated campaign attacks against Clinton for not making her emails public, “the current Justice Department made things worse,” by taking the position that agencies are not obliged to search for records not in the government’s possession when a FOIA request is made.
Lamberth wrote he took no pleasure in “questioning the intentions of the nation’s most august” Cabinet departments, but said it was necessary when their response “smacks of outrageous misconduct.” More
Clinton should have been indicted when Comey laid out that long list of reasons why she should be indicted. Is it possible that Hillary Clinton may actually be held accountable for her actions?
Sounds nice, but realistically, the only way she will ever be truly investigated is if the president nominates her to a cabinet position.
