Alexander et al. v. FBI, et. al.

In the case known as "Filegate" Judicial Watch is representing plaintiffs in a class-action suit filed by the White House employees of Reagan and G.H.W. Bush administrations whose FBI files were wrongly accessed by the Clinton-Gore White House. The Clinton White House and the FBI are being sued under the federal Privacy Act, while the defendants Bernard Nussbaum, Craig Livingstone, Anthony Marceca and Hillary Clinton are being sued for common law tort of invasion of privacy.

"Filegate" consists of the over 900 FBI files which were illegally acquired by the Clinton-Gore White House and the misuse of other government files protected by The Privacy Act, in order to gather information to smear political adversaries and critics.

Keep in mind that Chuck Colson spent seven months in prison for illegal possession of a single FBI file as part of the Watergate prosecutions.

Sworn testimony of two Clinton-Gore White House whistleblowers showed that over 100,000 (and perhaps as many as 1,000,000) e-mails, in addition to about 500 hard drive cartridges, which contained incriminating evidence concerning Filegate, Travelgate, Chinagate, Lewinsky and other Clinton scandals were tampered with.
