Federal judge grants Judicial Watch ‘legal discovery’ in Hillary Clinton’s email scandal citing bad faith and potential wrongdoing

March 29, 2016

 Judicial Watch has been seeking legal discovery in the case of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal because the group felt that the former Secretary of State has not fully complied with it FOIA request. According to this story a Federal judge has ruled in favor of Judicial Watch, which means the group may be allowed issue depositions to some of Hillary Clinton’s top aides.

Here is more:

Citing indications of wrongdoing and bad faith, a federal judge has overruled government objections by declaring that a conservative group is entitled to more details about how Hillary Clinton’s private email account was integrated into the State Department recordkeeping system and why it was not searched in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth entered an order Tuesday agreeing that Judicial Watch can pursue legal discovery — which often includes depositions of relevant individuals — as the group pursues legal claims that State did not respond completely to a FOIA request filed in May 2014 seeking records about talking points then-U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice used for TV appearances discussing the deadly attack on U.S. facilities in Benghazi in September 2012.

  This is the second judge to side with Judicial Watch over Hillary Clinton:

Lamberth is the second federal judge handling a Clinton email-related case to agree to discovery, which is unusual in FOIA litigation. Last month, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan gave Judicial Watch the go-ahead to pursue depositions of Clinton aides in a lawsuit for records about former Clinton Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin.

  It looks like Judicial Watch is going to be able to start issuing depositions to Hillary Clinton’s top aides and with yesterday’s news that the FBI will soon be seeking interviews with the same aides this could be about to get very interesting. And I have to admit the timing could not be much better…

    Considering Obama stacked the D.C. Court, we have had remarkable success. Even some of his Judges have ruled against him.

      Aren’t most the courts being stacked around the Country now? Probably very quietly, but it is being done from what I have heard. There are still a few hold out Judges that are making things difficult for this Administration, but they only postpone the inevitable, I believe!

        Yes they are and if we have another 4 or 8 years of Democrat rule and the whole court system will probably be lost.

    If I was one of those that was going to be deposed I would be packing my bags to take a long vacation in a country that does not have an extradition agreement with the US. Like Laos or Vietnam which have expat communities. Bill and Hillary play pretty rough, so I would not like to find myself in the park or woods.

      Not sure what would be worse, CJ! Either way, they danced with the devil, now they will have to pay the price. What type of person would associate with the Clintons and not know what they were made of? Surely they have read about their past! Maybe they like the drama and power that the Clintons bring with them. Who knows!

      I agree CJ, or else they could be taking a permanent vacation from the scene, if you know what I mean…

        In my opinion they all have an agenda and that agenda is to promote what is best for them. I decided to stop letting these people tell me what my opinion should be, I can figure that out on my own!

        There seems to be a hell of alot of stupid people that vote and you know what I think of stupid people. How else can you explain the fact that Clinton has a multitude of illegal crap she has pulled for years and STILL she is walking around as a free woman? It boggles ones mind!

      Funny thing is that this man that fired her, was a life long DEMOCRAT! Fast forward to today and look at people now! It is almost a badge of honor to get away with the crap and come out unscathed!
