Court grants new Discovery on Clinton E-mails – Hillary may be deposed!

 

No thanks to the Trump DOJ or State Department the investigation into Hillary’s Emails continues. Fighting it all the way. Still it plods along.The court ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”

Thank one honest judge U.S. District Court Judge Lamberth who has ordered Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers and Clinton aides to be deposed or answer written questions under oath.

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced on Friday that a federal judge granted seven additional depositions, three interrogatories and four document requests related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private, unauthorized email server.

Hillary Clinton and her former top aide and current lawyer Cheryl Mills were given 30 days to oppose being deposed by Judicial Watch (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)).

The court rejected Justice and State Department arguments to protect Clinton and the agencies from additional discovery and ordered agency lawyers to respond to Judicial Watch’s questions about their knowledge of the Clinton email issue.

The court granted all of Judicial Watch’s requested discovery but gave Clinton and Mills 30 days to file any opposition to the requests to question them in person under oath.

The new court-ordered discovery allows Judicial Watch to take testimony and gather evidence of Clinton’s handling of emails, specifically in an “after action memo” drafted by Heather Samuelson, Clinton’s senior advisor at State and White House liaison.

The memo was created in December 2014 to memorialize the Clinton team’s processing of the Clinton emails. The discovery also asks when Justice and State Department attorneys learned about Clinton’s private email use; and what senior records-keeping officials at the State Department knew about Clinton’s emails and when they knew it.

This past Friday, Judicial Watch submitted the document request to Hillary Clinton’s attorneys for the “after action memo” that Samuelson created.

One has to wonder why Judicial Watch has to do all the heavy lifting concerning government scandals but I guess we do know the answer.
