Judicial Watch sues for FBI records on Obama, Rahm Emanuel, and Valerie Jarretts depositions on Blagojevich

Judicial Watch has done America a huge favor by not forgetting Obama was deposed by the FBI on a criminal matter within days of being elected and pushing for the results of that deposition.  It will expose the rot that's been at the core of this Administration since the day Obama was elected.

The lawsuit from Judicial Watch, filed against the Justice Department in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, follows a 2011 Freedom of Information Act request in which the group sought information the bureau obtained from 2008 interviews with associates of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Those included meetings with Obama, his former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, and senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. 
Blagojevich was later convicted on 17 charges of public corruption related to an attempt to profit from filling the Senate seat left vacant when Obama was elected president. He is currently scheduled for release from prison in 2024.
