Judicial Watch has confirmed that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch used an email alias to conduct official business, circumventing transparency and public records laws.
Illustrating how government hides information from the American public, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch used a fake name to conduct official Department of Justice (DOJ) business in agency emails obtained by Judicial Watch. As the nation’s chief law enforcement officer Lynch, Barack Obama’s second attorney general, skirted public-records laws by using the alias Elizabeth Carlisle in emails she sent from her official DOJ account. In the records provided to Judicial Watch, the DOJ explains it as necessary to “protect her security and privacy and enable her to conduct Department business efficiently via email.” (Judicial Watch)
Judicial Watch Shorter: The top law enforcement official in the country under the Obama administration violated the law and did so to keep her dealings a secret from the public.
So, will North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper be rescinding the honor he bestowed on Lynch last October?
Governor Roy Cooper gave Lynch one of the highest honors in North Carolina that a civilian can receive to the woman who sued the state over HB2. And Cooper, as NC AG refused to defend the state in the case.
Though the DOJ recently furnished the documents with Lynch’s fake name, the records were part of Judicial Watch’s original 2015 FOIA request. The records also show that then Assistant Attorney General John Carlin touted SCN at an event sponsored by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an extremist leftist group that helped a gunman commit an act of terrorism against a conservative organization. A year later Carlin would launch the Michael Flynn counterintelligence investigation and seek the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant now in question.
SCN’s mission, according to Judicial Watch, was to “build social cohesion and community resilience to counter violent extremism” through a “global coalition.”
SPLC has systematically been labeling any group or person who clashes with their far-left, radical ideologies as a “hate group” or an “extremist.”
