Tom Fitton calls the targeting of Trump the ‘scandal of our generation’

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

As the American public has witnessed scandal after scandal go unpunished, they have simultaneously watched bumbling Congressional committees make, at best, halfhearted efforts to get at the truth. That’s if those committees aren’t stonewalled altogether.

But all is not lost in the fight for justice and transparency in government. The conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, led by Tom Fitton, has worked tirelessly toward obtaining and releasing critical information — information that Hillary Clinton and other government officials would prefer to stay buried — through the use of the Freedom of Information Act. Fitton recently called the targeting of President Donald Trump by the DOJ, the FBI and other agencies, the “scandal of our generation” — and confirmed that JW was committed to do “what it can do” in pursuit of the truth.

Fitton’s remarks came as he was accepting the 2018 Freedom Flame award from the Center for Security Policy, in recognition of the achievements earned by Judicial Watch. Following a powerful introduction by former U.S. attorney Joe DiGenova and presentation of the award by the Center’s Frank Gaffney, Fitton took the stage.

“I know a lot of you are desperate for Hillary Clinton to go to jail,” said Fitton. “Now, I don’t know if that’s going to happen, it’s unlikely it will happen, but it’s important to know we’ve won, in many ways, in terms of getting her held accountable, to the extent possible given our political system and the difficulties we have in pursuing justice against people in powerful places.”

“There’s been rough justice. It’s not perfect justice, but there is rough justice, and certainly to the extent that the American people were sitting as a grand jury on Election Day 2016, they indicted Hillary Clinton and she’s not president of the United States because of the misconduct that Judicial Watch caught her in with her email scandal,” he continued.

Fitton recalled that it was the FOIA lawsuits filed with regard to former Secretary of State Clinton’s involvement the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack and inquiries into the Clintons’ paid speeches that resulted in the exposure of the private email server scandal.

The targeting of Trump

“Little did I know that that Clinton email scandal would so frighten the establishment that they would immediately start to figure out ways to get out of it, and the way they tried to get out of it was by siccing the FBI and Justice Department on Donald Trump,” said Fitton. “This Justice Department and the FBI, while it was supposed to be prosecuting and investigating Hillary Clinton, was actually working with her campaign to come up with fraudulent reasons to spy on, investigate and target Donald Trump and his team.”

“There’s no scandal like that in American history, not in the history of the FBI, not in the history of the Justice Department,” he continued.

After noting there are undoubtedly ethical issues and minor scandals in the Trump administration, Fitton said, “The scandal of our generation is what’s going on with the targeting of President Trump, the hijacking of the FBI and CIA and Justice Department and Defense Department and who knows what other agencies, to try to drive him out of office.”

Following pointed criticism of the current Justice Department for its continued subversive behavior against Trump, Fitton said, “Everyone else will try to distract you with other things in the meantime, but that is the crisis of our time and Judicial Watch is in the forefront of trying to figure out what is going on there.”

Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch have proven to be invaluable in the struggle to hold government officials accountable for corruption and misconduct, and the American people probably wouldn’t know half of the dirt they know if it weren’t for the incredible efforts of Fitton’s organization to reveal it.
