• Hillary … Maybe … Finally … in The Hot Seat?

    Surge Summary: It looks like Hillary Clinton may be held accountable for her email shenanigans after all: a district court judge has ordered her to submit to a sworn deposition concerning the matter – by the middle of May.

    Here’s some interesting news you may have missed.  Lost in all the headlines about coronavirus and Super Tuesday comebacks, Hillary Clinton had a huge setback.

    The folks at Judicial Watch are doggedly pursuing answers to many important yet unresolved issues surrounding the former secretary of state’s private email server.  I’m pleased to report that they recently won a big legal battle in that ongoing effort.

    Judge Royce Lamberth has ordered Clinton to submit to a sworn deposition.  She’s responded to questions in writing before, but Judge Lamberth found her responses grossly inadequate.  The judge wrote that her answers were “incomplete” and “unhelpful,” and “left many more questions than answers.”

    Now Hillary will finally face a real grilling!  Of course, we know that Hillary was interviewed by the FBI.  But that interview was a total joke and she was handled with kid gloves.  It wasn’t recorded and she was never put under oath.

    Among other things, Judge Lamberth wants answers to the following questions:

    • How did Clinton come to believe that her private emails would be preserved, as is required by law?
    • When did she learn that State Department records management officials did not know about her private server?
    • Why did she think that using a private server for official State Department business was permissible in the first place?

    One reason Hillary’s emails remain an ongoing issue is that the government is still finding new messages.  Judicial Watch informed Judge Lamberth that the FBI turned over 30 new emails in December and the State Department has no explanation for where they came from.

    Clinton has until mid-May to complete the sworn deposition.
