“Well, we’ll wait and see,” Judicial Watch’s lead attorney on the case, Ramona Cotca, told The Epoch Times. “I don’t know if he’s going to do anything before Christmas at this point. I would expect the order to come probably after the first of the year.”
The scandals surrounding Benghazi and Clinton’s potential misuse of an insecure private email server located in her New York home are both focuses of a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed in 2014.
The lawsuit seeks information about how the government handled the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya by Islamic extremists that happened while Clinton was serving as President Barack Obama’s Secretary of State. Four Americans were killed in that attack, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
In this litigation against the State Department, documents obtained led directly to exposing in March 2015 that Clinton had used her private email system from 2009 to 2013 to conduct official U.S. diplomatic business.

It was learned that dozens of highly sensitive classified materials were sent to and from Clinton on the system. The FBI believes such correspondence was vulnerable to compromise by hackers outside the United States
Lamberth called Clinton’s email system “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency” in a December 2018 ruling. In September, Lamberth encouraged Judicial Watch to “shake this tree” and blasted the State Department, saying, “There is no FOIA exemption for political expedience, nor is there one for bureaucratic incompetence.”
