Hayes: State Dept Did Everything They Could to Hide Clinton-Benghazi Emails

A federal judge is ordering the State Department to try again to find emails top Hillary Clinton aides wrote about the Benghazi attack.

U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta ruled that the State Department had not done enough to try to track down emails in the official government accounts for Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and Jacob Sullivan related the 2012 terror attack that left four Americans dead.

On "America's Newsroom" today, Steve Hayes explained that Mehta ruled that the State Department must now search through its own internal records, which it previously neglected to do.

"That seems to be an obvious place for State to search if State had been interested in actually finding records responsive to these [Freedom of Information Act] requests," Hayes said.

id it was obvious, however, that the State Department was not interested in complying with FOIA requests related to Benghazi.

"They did everything they could to hide these records ... toying with congressional investigators who wanted this, being unresponsive to FOIA folks, deliberately trying to hide emails that they had through classification games," Hayes said.

He said it's not a surprise that the State Department bureaucracy wasn't "operating in good faith."

"The bottom line on all of this is: the State Department did not do it's job," Hayes said. "If we wanted to get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi ... these would obviously be the first things or among the first things that you would search for. The fact that the State Department didn't do it and resisted requests to do it speaks volumes."

Let's hope something comes of this. It sure would be nice to see her prosecuted. Would be nice to see anyone of those criminals from the previous administration be held accountable and go to prison.
