Amit Mehta is an Obama-appointed judge. On Wednesday, Mehta found that the State Department hasn’t done enough to dig up Hillary Clinton’s emails related to Benghazi.
The Benghazi issue may be surfacing again for Hillary Clinton.
According to Politico‘s Josh Gerstein, U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta agreed with conservative group Judicial Watch that “the State Department had not done enough to try to track down messages Clinton may have sent about” the infamous Benghazi attack.
More from Gerstein:
However, the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch argued that the search wasn’t good enough because State never tried to search its own systems for relevant messages in the official email accounts of Clinton’s top aides.
In a 10-page ruling issued Tuesday, Mehta — an Obama appointee — agreed.
Gerstein’s lead notes that Clinton faces the Benghazi controversy “[n]ine months after the presidential election was decided.” It’s unclear if Gerstein is commenting on the durability of the controversy, or suggesting that it should not matter since Clinton lost the election.
But if a judge – “nominated to [his] post by President Barack Obama” – thinks Benghazi still matters, it must.
