WASHINGTON, June 11, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- Judicial Watch today announced that, in an unusual Saturday ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Dabney L. Friedrich ordered the U.S. Justice Department to provide more information about its search of former top Obama DOJ Official Peter Kadzik's communications with then-Clinton presidential campaign chairman John Podesta, Clinton campaign officials, and others. The court order, issued in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, requires the Justice Department to provide additional details by June 15, 2018.
According to Wikileaks, on May 19, 2015, Kadzik, using a Gmail account, sent Podesta an email appearing to tip off Clintons' campaign about the Justice Department's review of Clinton's emails:
There is a HJC oversight hearing today where the head of our Civil Division will testify. Likely to get questions on State Department emails.
