Tom Fitton, of Judicial Watch, says that many Trump officials working on Freedom of Information cases which he files are still, often, Obama holdovers. They’re also telling Judicial Watch officials that “it will be years” before it can get Hillary Clinton’s emails… “Frankly,” Fitton told TheDCNF, “we should be waiting just a few months for them to get their act together.”
Fitton believes that Trump needs to start “draining the swamp” here as well, redicing the size and scope of the massive federal government.
Trump should embrace “extreme transparency,” for his administration — as well as for former President Barack Obama’s administration. Americans would benefit by knowing more about what Obama did and what he obstructed from the public while in government. Fitton is especially interested in Obama’s alleged spying on candidate Trump and other political opponents.
Fitton is losing patience with politicians. Citizens, he declared, “don’t have to take it from the politicians. They work for you. You don’t work for them.”
And the media, he charged, are missing the biggest scandal. “There’s been no evidence there’s been any collusion, like the left likes to fantasize about, between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” Fitton told TheDCNF, “but there is evidence that the Trump team was spied upon by the Obama administration using this ‘Russia connection,’ which is really weak, as a pretext.”
Fitton is appalled by the newly unfolding crimes of misuse of classified information and the unlawful leaking of this information to the media by President Donald Trump’s opponents inside the government.
