Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced this week it is seeking documents potentially showing the FBI ignored Intel community evidence that the Chinese hacked Hillary Clinton’s private server.

Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) for details of a meeting with the FBI regarding national security threats associated with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s “private” email system.

Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit after the ODNI failed to adequately respond to a July 13, 2018, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request (Judicial Watch Inc. vs Office of the Director of National Intelligence (No. 1:19-cv-00807)). Judicial Watch seeks:


Any and all records regarding, concerning, or related to the meeting between Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) official Frank Rucker, ICIG attorney Jeanette Macmillian, former Federal Bureau of Investigation Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok, and other[s] regarding security threats associated with the private e-mail server utilized by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

This request includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Any and all reports, notes, briefing materials, presentations, or similar records created in preparation for, during, and/or pursuant to the meeting.
  • Any and all related records of communication between any official, employee, or representative of the ICIG and any other individual or entity.

For purposes of clarification, the meeting in question was referenced by Rep. Louis Gohmert during the testimony of Mr. Strzok at a House of Representatives hearing on July 12, 2018.


During a hearing in July of 2018, Congressman Louie Gohmert a member of the House Judiciary Committee, revealed that the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found that nearly all of Hillary Clinton’s 30,000 emails were sent to a foreign entity and the FBI did nothing about it.

The ICIG found an “anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list,” Gohmert said to Peter Strzok during the hearing last July.

“It was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia,” Gohmert continued.

Gohmert revealed the ICIG investigator, Frank Rucker met Peter Strzok and presented the anomaly to him, yet he did nothing about it.

Peter Strzok only admitted to meeting with Rucker, however he claimed he could not recall “specific content” discussed.

Inspector General Horowitz was also notified about Hillary’s emails going to a foreign entity, however he did nothing about it either.

“Mr. Horowitz got a call four times from someone wanting to brief him about this, and he never returned the call,” Gohmert said.

Watch Gohmert’s exchange with Peter Strzok here:

“Our lawsuit could further expose how anti-Trump activists like disgraced FBI official Peter Strzok bent over backwards to protect Hillary Clinton from having to answer for her national security crimes,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The scandal of the illicit Trump spying is directly tied to the Deep State protection of Hillary Clinton.”
