(USA Features) Legal watchdog group Judicial Watch served Google with a subpoena Wednesday to produce missing emails from Hillary Clinton’s account that she used while serving as President Obama’s secretary of state.

The subpoena, authorized by a federal court in Washington, D.C., seeks emails cited by documents and testimony from Platte River Networks IT specialist Paul Combetta.



He reportedly “used the Google account to transfer Clinton’s emails from a laptop to a Platte River server, then used Bleach Bit to remove any traces of the emails from the laptop.”

“Judicial Watch’s subpoena seeks all Clinton emails from her time at State, January 21, 2009, to February 1, 2013. Google is requested to produce the emails by May 13,” stated a  statement released by Judicial Watch Wednesday.

Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch president, said “a federal court, tired of the State and Justice Departments’ gamesmanship authorized Judicial Watch’s subpoena to Google to follow a lead on the Clinton emails.

“DOJ and State are AWOL and covering up for Hillary Clinton, so it is again up to Judicial Watch to do the basic investigative heavy lifting to get at the truth,” he added.




Judicial Watch’s subpoena comes on the heels of a lawsuit that seeks records concerning “talking points or updates on the Benghazi attack,” the watchdog group noted.

In an August 2019 federal court hearing, U.S District Court Judge Royce Lamberth “raised concerns about Clinton’s Gmail cache and ordered Judicial Watch to ‘shake this tree’ on the issue,” Judicial Watch stated.
