Judge orders discovery on Hillary Clinton email scandal

January 16, 2019

  If you are getting tired of the Russia collusion investigation you had better get used to it because it is going to drag on for years to come. Just look at Hillary Clinton’s email scandal because, despite the fact it is ignored in the media, it is still dragging on and on with no end in sight. 

  You might have guessed it by the opening paragraph but there is an update to the Hillary Clinton email scandal investigation, a judge has ordered discovery can begin and several Clinton aides will be deposed under oath. Here is more:

Judicial Watch announced today that United States District Judge Royce C. Lamberth ruled that discovery can begin in Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers, and Clinton aides will now be deposed under oath. Senior officials — including Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes, Jacob Sullivan, and FBI official E.W. Priestap — will now have to answer Judicial Watch’s written questions under oath. The court rejected the DOJ and State Department’s objections to Judicial Watch’s court-ordered discovery plan. (The court, in ordering a discovery plan last month, ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”)

And here is a little more, including what Judicial Watch is hoping to learn:

Judicial Watch’s discovery will seek answers to:

  • Whether Clinton intentionally attempted to evade the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by using a non-government email system;
  • whether the State Department’s efforts to settle this case beginning in late 2014 amounted to bad faith; and
  • whether the State Department adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request.

Discovery is scheduled to be completed within 120 days. The court will hold a post-discovery hearing to determine if Judicial Watch may also depose additional witnesses, including Clinton and her former Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills.

  Of course I do not expect anything to come from this but it is good to know Judicial Watch is trying to get answers because nobody else is.

    The same two comments I left over at Bunkerville:

    This will drag on, if ever this gets off the ground, into the next administration (democrat I’m assuming) at which time the corrupted DOJ will lie down like a cheap rug.

    They will never get to her.

    They may get an underling. At this point a taken down Susan Rice will make my day. No doubt the interrogatories will be interesting reads. I’m in on this one. (Great minds)

      I’ll be over to check it out! I think you are right, at this point all we can hope for is that somebody pays and most likely it is going to be an underling. I’d take Susan Rice as a scalp at this point.
