FINALLY! Hillary Made to DO SOMETHING!47gh.,b43
It’s about doggone time! Regardless of how you look at this it is a step in the right direction. Hillary is being forced to do something she has been avoiding for some time. Through lawyers and red tape Hillary has evaded the simplest of requests … to give answers to questions under oath. Yesterday, a federal judge ordered Hillary Clinton to answer questions from Judicial Watch under oath. The organization had hoped to question her in person, but the judge has ruled she only has to answer in writing.
Judicial Watch must submit its questions by October 14th and she has 30 days to respond – which means her answers could potentially be delayed until after the election. Obviously we’re hoping Judicial Watch submits those questions by like…Monday.
“We are pleased that this federal court ordered Hillary Clinton to provide written answers under oath to some key questions about her email scandal,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “We will move quickly to get these answers. The decision is a reminder that Hillary Clinton is not above the law.”
the State Department shall release all remaining documents responsive to Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act request by no later than September 30, 2016; and it is FURTHER ORDERED that, consistent with Rule 33 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Judicial Watch may serve interrogatories on Secretary Clinton by no later than October 14, 2016 … Secretary Clinton’s responses are due by no later than thirty days thereafter … Judicial Watch may depose Mr. Bentel by no later than October 31, 2016.
In his opinion Judge Sullivan writes:
The Court is persuaded that Secretary Clinton’s testimony is necessary to enable her to explain on the record the purpose for the creation.
