Recommended Posts

Judicial Watch announced Tuesday that it filed a lawsuit against the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security for travel expense records on former President Barack Obama and his family, 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and President Donald Trump.

The conservative government watchdog filed the suit after the Air Force and the Secret Service failed to respond to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests the non-profit submitted between October and December 2016.

“The government could not care less about giving taxpayers basic information about what it costs to provide travel and protection to our political leadership and candidates,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “Judicial Watch shouldn’t have to file federal lawsuits to get basic information about how much taxpayers spend on the presidency.”

I think JW has a case unless they claim national security.  FOIA cannot be taken lightly.  They will get the info.
