Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton stopped by The Sean Hannity Show this week to weigh-in on their breaking story claiming Obama-era officials used foreign resources to monitor American journalists and allies of President Trump.
“Certain citizens were monitored to get information that could hurt Donald Trump. That would be a violation of the US Constitution. Now we know we’ve had surveillance at very high levels,” said Hannity. “Do we know for a certainty that this happened?”
“Our sources say it did,” Fitton fired-back. “The concern is that the government, and representatives abroad, can’t use public resources to track communications by American citizens. Evidently that was going on.”
“They then sought additional help from the State Department here in Washington, DC… We’re not sure how long it went on for, but we do know that the target list is very accurate and includes [Sean Hannity] and other conservatives known for taking a strong stance with President Trump,” he added.

BOMBSHELL REPORT: Ohrs ‘Funneled’ Uncorroborated Intel on Donald Trump Using Private Emails
Months after Americans learned that senior DOJ employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page exchanged anti-Trump text messages during and after the 2016 election, we’re now discovering that Bruce and Nellie Ohr “funneled” opposition research on Donald Trump using “Hi Honey” emails.
“A series of “Hi Honey” emails from Nellie Ohr to her high-ranking federal prosecutor-husband and his colleagues raise the prospect that Hillary Clinton-funded opposition research was being funneled into the Justice Department during the 2016 election through a back-door marital channel,” reports The Hill’s John Solomon.
“339 pages of emails, from her private account to Department of Justice (DOJ) email accounts, have been released under a Freedom of Information Act request by the conservative legal group Judicial Watch,” adds the article.
“They clearly show that Ohr sent reams of open-source intelligence to her husband, Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, and on some occasions to at least three DOJ prosecutors: Lisa Holtyn, Ivana Nizich and Joseph Wheatley,” Solomon concludes.

BREAKING NOW: New Strzok-Page Emails Show ‘Gaps’ in Clinton Probe, ‘Special Treatment’ for Hillary’s Attorney
Recently obtained emails exchanged between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page show the FBI aimed to accommodate requests from Hillary Clinton’s lawyers leading up to the 2016 race for the White House.
“Internal FBI emails released Monday show FBI officials in 2016 sought to ‘expeditiously’ accommodate a request for information from then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s lawyer, in what a conservative watchdog group claimed is evidence of ‘special treatment,’” reports Fox News.
“Judicial Watch – a group that routinely sues for government records – obtained and released 218 pages of emails between former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Many of the emails have to do with the bureau’s investigation into whether Clinton improperly used a private email server as secretary of state to discuss classified information,” adds the article.
“The emails released Monday, meanwhile, show then-FBI General Counsel James Baker writing that he spoke with Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, in August 2016 and promised that the FBI would work to hand over a copy of the 302 from Clinton’s interview ‘expeditiously,’” writes Fox.
Clinton’s email probe was thrust again into the national spotlight last week when former Attorney General Loretta Lynch contradicted James Comey’s Congressional testimony regarding the investigation.
“So you do not believe you ever instructed him to call it a matter?” one lawmaker asked Lynch.
“I did not. I have never instructed a witness as to what to say specifically. Never have. Never will,” fired-back the former Attorney General.
Lynch’s comments directly refute Comey’s Congressional testimony.
QUESTION: And then you made a comment earlier about the Attorney General, previous AG [Lynch] asking you about the investigation on the Clinton emails, saying that you were asked not to call it an ‘Investigation’ anymore, but to call it a ‘Matter.’ And you said that confused you. Can you give us additional details on that?
COMEY: Well, it concerned me, because we were at the point where we refused to confirm the existence of an investigation –as we usually do– for months,. And it was getting to a place where that looked silly, because the campaigns were talking about interacting with the FBI in the course of our work.
The Clinton campaign at the time was using all kinds of euphemisms, ‘security review,’ ‘matter.’ Things like that.
For what was going on. We were getting to a place where the Attorney General and I were going to have to testify and talk publicly about it, and I wanted to know if she would authorize us to confirm we had an investigation. And she said yes, but don’t call it that, call it a ‘Matter.’ And I said why would I do that? And [Lynch] said just call it a ‘Matter.’
