Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s inaction that led to the 2012 murder of four Americans in Benghazi may have been covered-up by the mainstream media — but conservative activists cotninue to work for justice even today.
And they just won a major victory.

U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth ruled in favor of legal watchdog Judicial Watch on Friday and ordered further investigations into Hillary’s illegal private email servers.
Specifically, the judge ruled that both the Department of Justice and the State Department must submit a proposed schedule for discovery on information that could prove Hillary illegally defied Benghazi-related Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests as part of a cover-up — by using her private email set-up.
The State Department must also answer questions on whether former Barack Obama administration insiders acted in “bad faith” by covering-up the existence of the illegal email servers.
That’s some serious bad news for Hillary — and it’s only just the beginning of her legal woes.
While the mainstream media focuses on President Donald Trump’s tweets, the legal battle over the Benghazi cover-up by the Obama administration continues to heat up behind-the-scenes.
The lawsuits related to the Hillary scandal, run by conservative activists, have jumped to the next level in recent weeks. In fact, newly found — previously unknown — emails related to the alleged cover-up, written by Hillary, were cited by Judge Lamberth during his ruling, Judicial Watch reported.
The court ordered the U.S. State Department and conservative activists
… to meet and confer to plan discovery into (a) whether Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email while Secretary of State was an intentional attempt to evade FOIA; (b) whether the State Department’s attempts to settle this case in late 2014 and early 2015 amounted to bad faith; and (c) whether State has adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s requests.
That means insiders must cooperate and share information on whether the Obama administration was involved in a cover-up.
In the court order, Lamberth called the botched investigation into Hillary’s email server “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”
[Obama’s] State and Justice Departments fell far short. So far short that the court questions, even now, whether they are acting in good faith. Did Hillary Clinton use her private email as Secretary of State to thwart this lofty goal [Obama announced standard for transparency]? Was the State Department’s attempt to settle this FOIA case in 2014 an effort to avoid searching – and disclosing the existence of – Clinton’s missing emails? And has State ever adequately searched for records in this case?
“Did State know Clinton deemed the Benghazi attack terrorism hours after it happened, contradicting the Obama Administration’s subsequent claim of a protest-gone-awry?” Lamberth later asked in his ruling.
“Did the Department merely fear what might be found? Or was State’s bungling just the unfortunate result of bureaucratic redtape and a failure to communicate?” Lamberth continued.

“To preserve the Department’s integrity, and to reassure the American people their government remains committed to transparency and the rule of law, this suspicion cannot be allowed to fester,” the court ruled.
