How Judicial Watch help unravel the Clinton-Obama Benghazi cover up attempt

Tampa Tribune:
Tom Fitton and the lawyers at Judicial Watch unearthed a bombshell.

Scouring through a cache of documents tied to the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack that killed four Americans at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, they discovered an email with the subject: PREP CALL with Susan: Saturday at 4:00 pm ET.

What followed was a list of Sunday news show talking points that a top Obama administration official prepared for Susan Rice, then ambassador to the United Nations, "to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy."

Congressional Republicans had investigated Benghazi for more than a year by the time Judicial Watch got the email through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. But the White House's role in shaping the early, false narrative provided critics with a smoking gun. The email was used to justify a select House committee that grilled Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for 11 hours straight.

Yet through thousands of documents and various probes into Clinton's State Department, something struck Fitton as curious: the lack of direct communication. "I was thinking maybe she just didn't email," he recalled. "So just to be sure, we asked again and sued again because we were stonewalled. And sure enough …"

Clinton's use of a private, unauthorized email server — revealed during the House investigation — has plagued her campaign for president, fueling widespread feelings she is untrustworthy.

Most Americans haven't heard of Judicial Watch, but the conservative group has been a principle force behind Clinton's trouble, prying free government documents through a withering deployment of FOIA requests and lawsuits.

When government agencies stall, Judicial Watch sues.

The group's lawsuits are responsible for the release of thousands of Clinton emails that were on her server and on Friday, the State Department was to begin releasing thousands more that were discovered in the FBI inquiry.

Next week, Clinton, under court order, must provide written answers to 25 questions posed by Judicial Watch.
...
There is much more.

While much of the media is so supportive of Democrats they do not dig for the truth anymore, Judicial Watch has been doing the kind of investigative work that the media used to do.  They have been breaking through the web of deception weaved by the Obama team and Hillary Clinton and forcing the media to take notice of events they were complicit in trying to hide.
