Where would we be without attorneys like those from Judicial watch and others to keep an eye on the malfeasance participated in daily by members of congress particularly those on the left side of the aisle?
They have rarely shown an inclination to police themselves so these gentlemen attempt to hold members of congress’ feet to the fire when possible.
The article below clears it up.
General Michael Flynn when all the allegations were flying around about his connections with Russia was unceremoniously given the boot by President Donald Trump.
General Flynn did this as a matter of honor in an attempt to halt the rumors being propagated by the leftist’s media in our country.
All that being said, good luck, the CIA has been a rogue agency (Source) for far too long, they will easily make what is requested disappear.
It’s not unheard of for them to make people who try to expose them die as well. (Source)
For his part, the General would do it again as one of the first things a military officer learns is the code of honor. (Source)
He took an oath to defend the U.S. Constitution, America, and Americans, something that seems to have escaped most members of congress particularly on the left.

(Washington DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) seeking an unclassified report assessing Russia’s interference in foreign elections (Judicial Watch v. Central Intelligence Agency (No. 1:17-cv-00414) (Source)
The lawsuit follows on the heels of a separate Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit for documents about the Obama administration’s surveillance and related leaks of top Trump associate and former national security adviser Gen. Mike Flynn. (Source)
Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit for the report after the CIA failed to respond to a December 14, 2016, FOIA request.
The agency’s response was due by January 24, 2017 at the latest.
On December 13, 2016, The Wall Street Journal reported that since 2015 Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, “has been pushing for the unclassified version of a report assessing Moscow’s interference in foreign elections, particularly across Europe.” The Wall Street Journal further reports:
The White House already released a classified version of the assessment but Mr. Turner has been pushing for the unclassified version, which would be releasable to the public, he said. Mr. Turner sent the White House a letter … demanding for the unclassified version of the report.
“The fact that the administration is picking and choosing the information it releases and who they release it to ought to give everybody concern that the administration is manipulating this,” he said.
The report is critical for a better understanding of what Moscow is up to in elections overseas, he said. Mr. Turner said the Obama administration is cherry picking what it releases.
“The illegal secrecy on the Obama administration’s anti-Trump Russia ‘investigations’ must end,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
“This report about Russia’s influence operations in Europe must not be helpful to the Obama anti-Trump Russia narrative – otherwise we wouldn’t have to sue in federal court to get it.”
