A federal judge has now ordered failed former Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to give a deposition to the conservative group Judicial Watch over her decision to use a secret private email server.
As The Daily Mail reports:
A federal judge has ordered former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to submit to a deposition by lawyers for the conservative group Judicial Watch over her fateful decision to use of a private email server.
Judge Royce Lamberth issued the order in response to litigation by the group that has dragged on for more than five years and seeks the public release of information from Clinton’s tenure at the State Department.
‘Any further discovery should focus on whether she used a private server to evade FOIA and, as a corollary to that, what she understood about State’s records management obligations,’ the judge wrote about the federal open records law…
‘As extensive as the existing record is, it does not sufficiently explain Secretary Clinton’s state of mind when she decided it would be an acceptable practice to set up and use a private server to conduct State Department business,” Judge Lamberth wrote.
So far Clinton has not been deposed under oath about the issue, a subject which has dogged her for years and raised serious questions about her personal ethics.
