Monday September 11 2017, a Maryland judge has ordered an investigation into three Hillary Clinton lawyers, following a legal complaint that they helped her delete thousands of official emails kept on a private server, in an attempt to destroy key evidence against Clinton in the case.
Attorney Ty Clevenger has been pressing the courts to take action against Hillary Clinton and her lawyers for their mishandling of her official emails during her time as secretary of state.
In August, the FBI attempted to side step a FOIA request by Clevenger for the release of documents pertaining to the Clinton email investigation. The FBI denied the request saying that hiding the information was justified due to a ‘lack of public interest’ in the investigation.
However, the judge handling the case, Paul F. Harris says that Clevenger’s complaint has merit and should be enough to prompt further investigation. Maryland’s office of Bar Counsel originally attempted to dismiss the complaint as frivolous, but Judge Harris rejected the dismissal saying that the complaints against Clinton’s lawyers were “egregious” and that the allegations of destroyed evidence meant that the bar should be required to fully investigate Clinton attorneys David E. Kendall, Cheryl D. Mills, and Heather Samuelson.
