President Donald Trump's administration continues to oppose two conservative groups' legal case regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails, The Washington Post reports.
Judicial Watch and Cause of Action took to federal court in Washington, D.C. Monday to argue for the release of further emails to and from Clinton, but Trump's State and Justice Departments continued to oppose their request.
Justice Department attorney Carol Federighi told Judge James E. Boasberg that the administration's "principal argument is going to be mootness based on all the developments that have happened since the case was filed," arguing that the 55,000 pages of emails already released being sufficient.
The Post notes that a previous ruling from Judge Boasberg against Judicial Watch was overturned just after Christmas by the D.C. Circuit Court, giving Trump a clear opportunity to push for further investigation that he declined to take.
