Judicial Watch may get to question Hillary under oath, and it will be videotaped. Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden have no doubt noticed.
Just about two weeks ago, U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, an appointee of Pres. Bill Clinton, granted Judicial Watch the right to depose several of Hillary Clinton’s top aides, including Brian Pagliano, Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, as part of the discovery in its Freedom of Information lawsuit, one of 39 such cases involving Mrs. Clinton’s outlaw conduct. At that time, Judge Sullivan said “Based on information learned during discovery, the deposition of Mrs. Clinton may be necessary. If Plaintiff believes Mrs. Clinton’s testimony is required, it will request permission from the Court at the appropriate time.” Judge Sullivan is one of two judges who have allowed Hillary’s top lieutenants to be deposed. The other is Judge Royce C. Lamberth. On Monday, Judicial Watch presented him with a request to depose Grandma.
From The Washington Times:
A conservative legal group asked a judge Monday to order Hillary Clinton to face deposition under oath about her role in creating the secret email account she used as secretary of state at the State Department.
Judicial Watch had previously won the right to question her top aides, but the group says it now wants to question Mrs. Clinton herself about her decision to use a non-State.gov account to conduct all of her official business.
“Mrs. Clinton’s testimony will help the courts determine whether her email practices thwarted the Freedom of Information Act,” Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch’s president, said in a statement after his group filed the request with Judge Royce C. Lamberth.
Whether her email practices thwarted FOIA? I’m sure Mr. Fitton’s tongue was firmly planted in his cheek when he said that!
Thanks, Judicial Watch, for doing the job that the lame, impotent GOP in Congress is unwilling to do.
