Federal judge orders Hillary Clinton deposition to address private emails: 'Still more to learn'

    A federal judge Monday granted a request from conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch to have former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sit for a sworn deposition to answer questions about her use of a private email server to conduct government business.

    Clinton has argued that she has already answered questions about this and should not have to do so again -- the matter did not result in any charges for the then-presidential candidate in 2016 after a high-profile investigation -- but D.C. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth said in his ruling that her past responses left much to be desired.

    "As extensive as the existing record is, it does not sufficiently explain Secretary Clinton’s state of mind when she decided it would be an acceptable practice to set up and use a private server to conduct State Department business," Lamberth said.

    The judge went on to recognize that while Clinton responded to written questions in a separate case, "those responses were either incomplete, unhelpful, or cursory at best. Simply put her responses left many more questions than answers.” Lamberth said that using written questions this time “will only muddle any understanding of Secretary Clinton’s state of mind and fail to capture the full picture, thus delaying the final disposition of this case even further.”

    Lamberth even gave some examples of lingering questions about Clinton's emails, such as how did she come to believe that her private emails would be preserved under normal State Department processes, who told her this and when, at what point did she learn department records management officials did not know about the server, "[a]nd why did she think that using a private server to conduct State Department business was permissible under the law in the first place?"

    The ruling comes after Judicial Watch revealed at a December 2019 status conference that the FBI released "approximately thirty previously undisclosed Clinton emails," and that the State Department "failed to fully explain" where they came from.

    Since she is a candidate for 2020, she can't answer right now.

    Don’t expect any new revelations. She will bob and weave and eventually evade all serious questions. And if evasion won’t work, she will lie. If all else fails she will feign amnesia. Hillary has never given up any serious information in a deposition she won’t this time.

    We get to witness her memory fail her another couple of hundred times, setting an all time record for the "smartest woman in the world".
