State Department Reveal 2,800 Government Documents on Weiner’s Laptop

Clinton Email Federal Court Hearing Thursday, October 19

Hillary's October Surprise
Hillary’s October Surprise Weiner

Judicial WatchWashington, DC-( Judicial Watch revealed today that the U.S. Department of State admits it received 2,800 Huma Abedin work-related documents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) that were found on her estranged husband Anthony Weiner’s personal laptop. Abedin was former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff. Weiner is a disgraced former congressman and New York mayoral candidate who recently plead guilty to transferring obscene material to a minor. Abedin kept a email account that she used repeatedly for government business on Hillary Clinton’s notorious email server(s).

The revelation was produced in a May 5, 2015, lawsuit Judicial Watch filed against the State Department (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00684)). Judicial Watch sued after the State Department failed to respond to a March 18, 2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking: “All emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013 using a non-‘’ email address.”

In accordance with a court-ordered production of documents, the State Department’s court filing states: “The State Department has identified approximately 2,800 work-related documents among the documents provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.” By December 31, 2017, the State Department expects to complete its review and production of the FBI records. The government suggests some of the material may be “duplicative” of other records.

“This is a disturbing development. Our experience with Abedin’s emails suggest these Weiner laptop documents will include classified and other sensitive materials,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “When will the Justice Department do a serious investigation of Hillary Clinton’s and Huma Abedin’s obvious violations of law?”

Judicial Watch previously released 20 productions of documents in this case that show examples of mishandling of classified information and instances of pay to play between the Clinton State Department and the Clinton Foundation. Also, at least 627 emails were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over, and further contradict a statement by Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails had been turned over to department.

A hearing will be heard in a related case:

Date: Thursday, October 19

Time: 10:30 am

Location: Courtroom 19; U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia; 333 Constitution Ave NW; Washington, DC 20001

The State Department is processing 100,000 emails Clinton failed to disclose when she served as Secretary of State, some of which were emails sent by Abedin that were found on Weiner’s laptop. Clinton attempted to delete 33,000 emails from her non-government server.

The State Department was ordered to produce documents to Judicial Watch, and has been processing only 500 pages per month of emails uncovered by the FBI in its investigation into Clinton’s non-government email system. The State Department has produced 23 batches of documents in this case so far. At the current pace, the Clinton emails and other records won’t be fully available for possible release until at least 2020.

The lawsuit was originally filed in May 2015 (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00687)).

The same old crap, over and over. Don’t get me wrong I am not attacking Judicial Watch but I am attacking the horrible, unusually crooked swamp. Each has done something that can get them in trouble if it gets out so everyone keeps their mouth shut and won’t say anything because that person could turn and spill the beans on the whistleblower. Round and round the merry go round goes with nothing getting done and hilliary just sits back and laughs because she has enough dirt on the congres rats to make their lives hell. Anyone got the gonads to… Read more »


I don’t think we’ll will ever get all of Clinton’s e-mails! Wiped or not she it to big a crook to give them up!

The odds of Clinton ever being prosecuted for any of the numerous crimes she has obviously committed over the decades is somewhere between slim and none – closer to none. So, what is the point of all the investigations that will lead nowhere? Maybe a treatise on why the “new” administration has failed/refused to conduct investigations into DoJ corruption aided and abetted by Eric Holder and Bathhouse Barry, serious investigations into FBI failures regarding Clinton and cronies’ influence peddling, etc. Are the jails full? These major white-collar criminals could be housed in tents inside chain-link fences and razor wire. Would… Read more »


It is so perplexing how Clinton and her sycophants are not charged with some sort of criminal activity. Really makes you wonder how corrupt or balanced the federal system has become.


They have to look like they are trying to do something, knowing all the while it means nothing.


The Clinton’s are smart enough to implicate lots of other corrupt politicians from both sides of the aisle. If the RINO’s try to take her down they will fall also. That’s why nothing will ever happen. And you peasants just need to go back to work and quit complaining about stuff you have no control over and are too stupid to know anything about.


SK: The Clinton’s aren’t smart. OUR government is the ones who are DUMB. Take THEM ALL DOWN ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE. Clean house and “drain the whole swamp”.. I assume YOU don’t think YOU are a peasant? Why, are you a libturd who can’t see the TRUTH that she is a CRIMINAL.. We wonder why WE DON’T TRUST THE GOVERNMENT, this is exactly WHY; because they are NOT doing their JOB.. Disgusting..


Just think Sessions has declined to even investigate. I believe Pres.Trump should fire this loser, and get someone that has a pair!
