Judge Orders Hillary Clinton To Appear For Deposition As Part Of Judicial Watch Lawsuit
But Lamberth said in his decision that Clinton has yet to fully explain her decision to use the email server. He said that after reviewing Clinton’s responses in the lawsuit he is handling, as well as a lawsuit in front of Judge Emmet Sullivan, “the Court believes those responses were either incomplete, unhelpful, or cursory at best.” “Simply put, her responses left many more questions than answers.” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton celebrated the decision

Thank God for Judicial Watch.  They are one of America’s best legal watchdog organizations.  Their pursuit of the truth and setting the record straight is nothing short of exemplary.  The judge awarded Judicial watch everything they sought in their fine lawsuit.  Judicial watch exposed the bias of the mainstream media for their not pursuing this info.

A federal judge on Monday ordered Hillary Clinton to appear for a deposition as part of a lawsuit filed by the watchdog group Judicial Watch, saying in a ruling that the former secretary of state’s written responses so far in the case have “left many more questions than answers” about her decision to use a private email system while in office.

Judge Royce Lamberth also  granted Judicial Watch permission to depose  Cheryl Mills , a top aide to Clinton at the State Department.

Lamberth first ordered discovery in the lawsuit in December 2018 to determine whether Clinton used a private email system at Foggy Bottom in order to skirt the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

An FBI investigation of Clinton’s private email network showed that she and several top aides sent and received hundreds of emails containing classified information about State Department matters.

The FBI ultimately decided not to recommend that Clinton be charged for mishandling classified information, though former FBI Director James Comey said at  a July 5, 2016 press conference that Clinton’s handling of her emails was “extremely careless.”

Clinton has provided written responses to Judicial Watch as part of the lawsuit, but Lamberth said that her answers leave many remaining questions about her decision to use an email server, and what she knew about State Department policies regarding FOIA.

“Judicial Watch correctly points out that many questions regarding her understanding of these obligations still remain unanswered,” Lamberth said.

Several reporters filed FOIA requests for Clinton’s State Department emails while she was in office, only to be told that the agency did not have any responsive records.

Clinton did not provide her State Department emails to the agency until late 2014, in response to congressional requests as part of an investigation into the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

Clinton handed over only around half of the 60,000 emails that were stored on her server. She claimed that the others were private in nature and did not involve State Department business.

Clinton has defended using a private email network, saying that she did it for convenience, and not to evade FOIA. But Lamberth said in his decision that Clinton has yet to fully explain her decision to use the email server.

He said that after reviewing Clinton’s responses in the lawsuit he is handling, as well as a lawsuit in front of Judge Emmet Sullivan, “the Court believes those responses were either incomplete, unhelpful, or cursory at best.”

“Simply put, her responses left many more questions than answers.”

Judicial Watch president  Tom Fitton celebrated the decision in a statement.

“Judicial Watch uncovered the Clinton email scandal and we’re pleased that the court authorized us to depose Mrs. Clinton directly on her email conduct and how it impacted the people’s ‘right to know’ under FOIA,” he said.

Election is coming.  The 'nutbags' can't really exalt 'the Trump' so the standard bag of smear, accusation and lies are all they have.

And this is WHAT THE HELL FOR.

Perhaps Judicial Watch has yet to receive the memo, but after a 3-year investigation by the current administration's justice department, Hillary Clinton was cleared of wrong-doing in regard to this matter. But if deposing Former Secretary Clinton will make the folks at Judicial Watch feel worthwhile and significant, then fine and dandy.  The deposition will only serve to put an exclamation point behind the 'cleared of wrong-doing' part.

Since when does "extremely careless" equate to being "cleared of wrong-doing"???

Especially since under the law regarding many classified documents extremely careless was part of the definition of wrong doing.

If that's the case then why is it in front of a judge?  Oh, that's right, because the 3 year "investigation" was a facade.

Hillary's going to develop dementia again. She'll break her personal    record  of claiming "I don't remember" the last time the  FBI talked to her.  James Comey's all time record will be hard to beat, but given aggressive enough questioning, I'm sure she can make a run at the title.

They are just bitter that Trump appeals all the Obama judges and 9th circuit rulings to higher courts rather than simply yield to their nationwide injunctions
