Team Hillary’s Contempt of Court

Amidst the hubbub about last week’s Republican candidates’ debate, the media seems to have ignored a development of potentially far more enduring impact on the coming presidential election.

On Friday, Hillary Clinton and two top aides, Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedein, missed a court-ordered deadline arising from a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch. Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan required the three to produce all government records in their possession and describe their use of Hillary Clinton’s email server to conduct government business.

Mills and Abedin ignored the court order and Clinton had yet to respond as of Friday. Incredibly, Mills’ lawyer has advised her to begin destroying possibly relevant documents today.

Sure sounds like contempt of court, if not obstruction of justice, charges against the three are now in order.
