Power 100: Thomas Fitton

, President, Judicial Watch
The strongly pro-Republican Judicial Watch, which Fitton heads and Trump likes to quote, originally revealed Hillary Clinton’s alleged misuse of classified memos as secretary of state. More recently, Fitton accused the Obama administration of turning the FBI into “a KGB-style operation,” and claimed that Hillary Clinton and the Democrats had misled a court to authorize “spying on the Trump Team.” The organization doggedly pursues Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, claiming it wants to uncover “corrupt behavior” that occurs “in secrecy, behind closed doors.” But Fitton and his group have been accused of being obsessed with Hillary Clinton’s emails and spreading untruths about their contents. Fitton has also called for an end to the Mueller investigation and the shuttering of the FBI.
