Judge Demands Hillary Deposition Over Emails, Private Server

Judge Demands Hillary Deposition Over Emails, Private Server

“To argue that the Court now has enough information to determine whether the State conducted an adequate search is preposterous…”

D.C. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth ordered failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to sit for a deposition over her use of a private server when she served as secretary of state.

Judicial Watch continues to demand more rounds “of discovery.” Lambert agrees because “the Court is left with more questions than answers” after every release in relation to Hillary’s emails and servers:

State asks the Court to close discovery and to move this case towards dispositive motions and an eventual resolution. But there 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 the 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 as follows.

The Court granted deposition of Hillary only when it comes to her “private server and her understanding of State’s records management obligations.” It denied a deposition on other matters requested by Judicial Watch except when it comes to the Benghazi attack records:

The Court holds that Secretary Clinton and Ms. [Cheryl] Mills cannot be questioned about the underlying actions taken after the Benghazi attack, but they may be questioned about their knowledge of the existence of any emails, documents, or text messages related to the Benghazi attack. Such inquiries would go to the adequacy of the search without expanding the parameters of discovery to include the substance of the government’s response to the attack.

The court granted these depositions and subpoenas:

  • Brett Gittleson: Director of the Office of the Secretary, the Executive Secretariat’s Information Resource Management
  • Yvette Jacks: Deputy Director of S/ES-IRM and assisted with troubleshooting the private server
  • Paul Combetta: IT specialist “involved with the transfer and deletion” of emails
  • Subpoena “Google for relevant documents and records associated with” Hillary during her time as secretary of state
  • Cheryl Mills: Counselor and chief of staff for Hillary at the State Department

The Court denied Judicial Watch’s request for “two additional interrogatories on State.” This includes asking the department to “[i]identify the number of FOIA lawsuits pending in 2014 that sought records relevant to Secretary Clinton’s emails from her tenure at the State Department.” The second request wanted the department “to identify the number of lawsuits the State Department attempted to settle from January 2014 through February 2015.”

The Court sided with the State Department because it found both requests “ambiguous, unduly burdensome.” Lamberth added that the second request is “disproportionate the needs of the case.” Plus the information Judicial Watch wants is “related to internal settlement discussion, which likely would be protected by the work-product doctrine.”

They should video this deposition and make it available to law students as an instructional on evasion.

    Correct..Consider this “White Water II”. It will be a series of “I can’t remember” that was the basis of a Limbaugh parody of “Try to Remember” song. Wait long enough and even the questioners will forget what to ask.

    “I can’t remember”
    “Not that I can recall”
    “No, even after your efforts to refresh my memory, I come up blank”

    And on and on it will go.

Big deal. Nothing, I repeat nothing, will ever happen to Hillary Clinton. She’s talked her way out of every legal mess she’s been in to date and I don’t doubt she’ll do the same with this. And even if she is required to present herself for a deposition she’ll just put her thick, black retard glasses on once again and talk her way out of any problems. Because really, at this point why does it matter. She’s never going to be held accountable for her criminal acts. Never.

she better be careful, or she’s likely to be suicided, like so many other people that have had dirt on her…

Odds that the judge commits suicide within 60 days?

here is the important points here.

First, the fact that even a blind California liberal can see that HRC blatantly violated thee law, with regard to her server. It is so obvious that the judge granted the motion for depositions of HRC and her closest aides for discovery purposes.

Second, the judge still intends to shield HRC and the government as much as possible. The number of FOIA requests should actually be public record. The number of lawsuits, regarding FOIA requests, should also be public record. Neither request is a matter of national security or harms the government or its mission in any way. Declining to order such disclosure only serves to protect current members of the government.

The only real value here will be in making that serpent hiss and spit venom in all directions. Make it a pay per view event.

I’m guessing bho gave hillary a secret get out of jail free card, since he was hoping she would give him one after she won the 2016 election. I bet he gave himself one anyway and stashed it with the passports brennan ginned up for him. You know, like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.

Maybe it was a good thing she wasn’t elected president. To have this bout of upcoming forgetfulness might have put the country as risk, don’t you think?

I have zero faith that justice will be found with Hillary.

The words: Clinton, responsibility, honor, accountability cannot be used in the same paragraph.

I assume that the White House has someone ready for confirmation hearings after they are appointed to replace the soon-to-be-late Judge Lamberth.

Maybe she’ll drop dead during the deposition. Hopefully, it’ll be on video.

Judge Lambert’s family might be wealthy if HRC sticks to precedent.
