-- Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act request Wednesday to obtain communications from agency employees who allegedly used the encryption app “Signal” to undercut President Donald Trump’s agenda.
“This new lawsuit could expose how the anti-Trump ‘deep state’ embedded in EPA is working to undermine the rule of law,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in press statement. He was referring to recent revelations showing EPA officials are using an encrypted application to thwart the Trump administration.
Fitton added: “[I]t is disturbing to see reports that career civil servants and appointed officials may now be attempting to use high-tech blocking devices to circumvent the Federal Records Act and the Freedom of Information Act altogether.”
