Judicial Watch is back, in case you've missed them. (I haven't):

Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog organization, has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit to gain access to the emails of the former acting Attorney General Sally Yates.

According to the group's statement, which came the day after Yates testified to a Senate panel about Russian interference in last year's election, Judicial Watch filed suit against the Department of Justice after it "failed to respond to a February 1, 2017, FOIA request seeking access to her emails between January 21, 2017, and January 31, 2017."

“Between her involvements in the Russian surveillance scandal and her lawless effort to thwart President Trump’s immigration executive order, Sally Yates short tenure as the acting Attorney General was remarkably troubling,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. 

“Her email traffic might provide a window into how the anti-Trump ‘deep state’ abused the Justice Department,” he added.
