It’s Those Emails Again
If Crooked Hillary thought her legal troubles stemming from her private server were behind her since FBI Director Comey folded, she is mistaken.
On Tuesday, the legal group cited Clinton’s “evolving explanation” for setting up the private server as a reason she needed to be deposed in the lawsuit.
Their filing cited a recent interview with CBS News during which Clinton said “it was recommended that it would be convenient” for her to use a private server during her time in office.
Judicial Watch lawyer Michael Bekesha wrote, “Based on her testimony to the Benghazi Select Committee, the statement on her campaign website, and her purported answers to the FBI’s questions, it is nowhere even suggested that Secretary Clinton’s decision to use the clintonemail.com system for official government business was based on someone else’s recommendation.”
“Because of the evolving explanation, Secretary Clinton’s deposition is necessary to effectively and efficiently understand how the decision was made and the motivation behind it.”
The judge in the Judicial Watch case had previously said that the group would be allowed to depose Clinton if they presented a good case as to why they thought it necessary.
Judicial Watch made such a filing and a hearing was held to allow Clinton’s attorneys a chance to make their case why she should not be deposed.
Clinton’s attorney, David Kendall, appeared to be setting up for an appeal in case Judge Sullivan ruled Clinton would need to testify. The judge is expected to make his decision on the deposition very soon.
The saga continues…
