Judicial Watch Victory: Federal Court Orders Deposition of Hillary Clinton on Emails and Benghazi Attack Records

Judicial Watch today announced that U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth granted Judicial Watch’s request to depose former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about her emails and Benghazi attack documents. The court also ordered the deposition of Clinton’s former Chief of Staff, Cheryl Mills and two other State Department officials.

Additionally, the court granted Judicial Watch’s request to subpoena Google for relevant documents and records associated with Clinton’s emails during her tenure at the State Department.

The ruling comes in Judicial Watch’s lawsuit that seeks records concerning “talking points or updates on the Benghazi attack” (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)). Judicial Watch famously uncovered in 2014 that the “talking points” that provided the basis for Susan Rice’s false statements were created by the Obama White House. This Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit led directly to the disclosure of the Clinton email system in 2015.

In December 2018, Judge Lamberth first ordered discovery into whether Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server was intended to stymie FOIA; whether the State Department’s intent to settle this case in late 2014 and early 2015 amounted to bad faith; and whether the State Department has adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s request. The court also authorized discovery into whether the Benghazi controversy motivated the cover-up of Clinton’s email. The court ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.” The State and Justice Departments continued to defend Clinton’s and the agency’s email conduct.

Judge Lamberth today overruled Clinton’s and the State and Justice Department’s objections to limited additional discovery by first noting:

Discovery up until this point has brought to light a noteworthy amount of relevant information, but Judicial Watch requests an additional round of discovery, and understandably so. With each passing round of discovery, the Court is left with more questions than answers.

Additionally, Judge Lamberth said that he is troubled by the fact that both the State Department and Department of Justice want to close discovery in this case:

[T]here is still more to learn. Even though many important questions remain unanswered, the Justice Department inexplicably still takes the position that the court should close discovery and rule on dispositive motions. The Court is especially troubled by this. To argue that the Court now has enough information to determine whether State conducted an adequate search is preposterous, especially when considering State’s deficient representations regarding the existence of additional Clinton emails. Instead, the Court will authorize a new round of discovery

With respect to Clinton, the court found that her prior testimony, mostly through written sworn answers, was not sufficient:

The Court has considered the numerous times in which Secretary Clinton said she could not recall or remember certain details in her prior interrogatory answers. In a deposition, it is more likely that plaintiff’s counsel could use documents and other testimony to attempt to refresh her recollection. And so, to avoid the unsatisfying and inefficient outcome of multiple rounds of fruitless interrogatories and move this almost six-year-old case closer to its conclusion, Judicial Watch will be permitted to clarify and further explore Secretary Clinton’s answers in person and immediately after she gives them. The Court agrees with Judicial Watch – it is time to hear directly from Secretary Clinton.

“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,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

"I'm sorry I don't recall".

I hope Tom Fitton looks good in Kevlar.

Remember how it was discovered that Hillary had told the Egyptian prime minister that the attack in Libya had nothing to do with a You Tube video???

Remember how she then went on to tell the grieving families that it was a You Tube video that caused the attack???

Remember how Hillary excused this not as a lie to those families, but as her being caught up in "the fog of war"???

Remember how Hillary told the FBI that she wasn't aware that 'C' meant classified, but thought it was alphabetical order even though there was no 'A' or 'B'???

Remember how Hillary said the only e-mails that were destroyed were personal ones regarding yoga, her daughter's wedding, her mother's funeral, etc. ???

Remember how Hillary pretended to think that wiping a server meant cleaning it with a cloth???

If I thought harder, I could come with more "remembers" to go along with the 39 times that she told the FBI . . . "I don't recall".

She got away with all that and I have lost any belief that she will ever be held accountable for anything. However, I applaud Judicial Watch and Tom Fitton for trying and hope that they can prove that Hillary is not above the law.

In my view, this case is some of the most obvious "evidence" of the deep state. The circling of the wagons by the state department is expected but the justice department?

Watch Hillary?

Do I have to?

Once the spotlight starts to shine what’s the over/under on the number of close to Clinton killed?

I look forward to seeing these answers. It would be glorious if it were a public deposition with reporters present.

I’ll suggest Hillary getting in this race is more and more likely.

Dwight Schrute 04-06-2020 02:39 PM

This is Part 4. Didn’t realize til I nearly finished. But astonishing by all accounts.

Once again, the body count just spikes when anyone gets near the curtain of Killery.

AkPatsFan 04-06-2020 02:42 PM

Ain't shit going to happen to her, she is protected by the swamp and the Clinton hit squad.

Dwight Schrute 04-06-2020 02:54 PM

It’s worth a watch just to hear those who got too close and suicided in odd fashion.

OK. So then she's a three-time loser, and we can finally put her away for good, right? :coffee:

Cheers, BostonTim
