Judicial Watch: Federal judge orders DOJ to explain why Awan documents are being kept secret
15 Jan 2020 — #Swamp
According to a Judicial Watch press release, U.S. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta ordered DOJ attorneys to appear at a “snap hearing after the Justice Department submitted information under seal on Friday following the court’s demand for an explanation of why no records have been produced.”
“The DOJ’s handling of the Awan Brothers case has long been an issue of concern and now we are expected believe some secret investigation prevents the public from knowing the full truth about this scandal,” said Judicial Watch President, Tom Fitton.
