The watchdog group Judicial Watch has announced that they are suing the federal government to obtain records on President Obama held by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
According to The Washington Examiner, the lawsuit was filed against the Justice Department in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, and it comes after a 2011 Freedom of Information Act request in which the group sought information the bureau obtained through 2008 interviews with associates of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. These meetings were with people like Obama, his former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, and senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.
Blagojevich was subsequently convicted on 17 charges of public corruption pertaining to an attempt to profit from filling the Senate seat left vacant when Obama was elected president. He will not be released from prison until 2024.
Since then, the FBI has denied Judicial Watch’s requests for information multiple times, say that releasing what they learned from Obama and his associates could “reasonably be expected to interfere with enforcement proceedings.”
“This lawsuit highlights the personal corruption issues of Barack Obama,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “Barack Obama and his closest aides were interviewed by the FBI in a criminal investigation and his administration doesn’t want Americans to have the details. The Chicago way shouldn’t trump the American people’s right to know.”
We can only hope that this lawsuit is a success, and that something comes out from it that could get Obama impeached. SHARE this story if you want Obama to be EVICTED from the White House!
