The president of the government watchdog group that last week discovered smoking-gun Benghazi emails implicating the White House in a cover-up says more damning documents are being kept under wraps by the White House.

"There's a whole bunch of documents they haven't released to us," Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Just last week we received a list from the administration of reasons why they were not going to turn over certain documents," he said Tuesday.

Story continues below video.



Fitton's non-profit group made headlines when a Freedom of Information Act request yielded emails revealing that then-U.S. Amabassador Susan Rice was coached to blame an anti-Muslim video for the Benghazi attack, in which four Americans died.

That explanation proved false, and critics think the White House purposely covered up the fact that the Sept. 11, 2012, attack was the work of terrorists because it was just weeks before the presidential election.

Fitton said the White House has continued to be secretive about the truth behind the Benghazi attacks since they occurred.

"We should not be naïve about the ability of the administration to stonewall,'' he said.

"But from Judicial Watch's perspective, we're just going to keep on keeping on and pursuing this information in court independently, because in the end it's a political process and the administration is almost guaranteed to play games."

Fitton said his group now has four lawsuits filed asking for Benghazi-related documents.

"We're going to battle in court over the documents that have been withheld,'' he said.
