Maryland’s state bar will have to investigate three attorneys who helped Hillary Clinton delete thousands of emails.
The complaint was filed by former Department of Justice Attorney Ty Clevenger. The complaint accuses David Kendall, Cheryl Mills, and Heather Samuelson of destroying evidence.
Judge Paul Harris refused to dismiss an investigation as “frivolous” and ordered the investigation to move forward.
Harris called the allegations “egregious” and ruled that the complaint “appears to have merit.”
“There are allegations of destroying evidence. I just think this is a rather easy decision at this point . . . The court is ordering bar counsel to investigate.”
The rules of the state bar require the bar to “conduct investigations no matter who raises the complaint.”
Ty Clevenger “has pursued sanctions against Mrs. Clinton and her legal team in several venues and is pressing the FBI to release details of its investigation into the former top diplomat.”
