Watchdog Groups Seek Unredacted Subpoenas Issued During Clinton Email Investigation


Watchdog groups are suing the State Department and the National Archives for the unredacted grand jury subpoenas issued in the Clinton email investigation.

Cause of Action and Judicial Watch filed a reply brief in the United States District Court Friday seeking the full record of subpoenas that were issued in an attempt to recover former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails from her BlackBerry.

“The FBI’s revelation that grand jury subpoenas were issued during its investigation of Secretary Clinton’s emails revealed a criminal component,” said John J. Vecchione, Cause of Action Institute president and CEO. “Details of these subpoenas could be critical to our case to recover those emails.”

E.W. Priestap, the assistant director for the FBI’s counterintelligence division, revealed for the first time in a filing in April that grand jury subpoenas were issued in the Clinton investigation. Priestap stated that grand jury subpoenas were obtained for Clinton’s BlackBerry e-mail accounts, but they “produced no responsive materials.”
