Hillary Clinton ordered deposed over emails

#1

Post by June bug »

By...surprise: Royce Lamberth!!

Per Politico https://www.politico.com/news/2020/03/0 ... ion-118800

U.S. District Court Royce Lamberth issued the order Monday in connection with a five-and-a-half-year-old Freedom of Information Act lawsuit the conservative group Judicial Watch filed seeking emails related to the deadly 2012 attack on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya.

Clinton was previously required to submit a sworn written statement about her email use, but the deposition—if it takes place—would be the first time she has had to submit to live questioning under oath on the subject.

Lamberth said in his ruling Monday that the FBI probe and representations by the State Department have not adequately put to rest questions about the episode and Clinton's deposition is needed to address those concerns.

"To argue that the Court now has enough information to determine whether State conducted an adequate search is preposterous," wrote Lamberth, who has tangled with Clinton aides for decades in a series of cases.

Seriously, do they think THIS is finally going to "lock her up?" And when it all comes to naught, Clinton will smile smugly while these idiots scream "DEEP STATE!"

Although I'm fairly certain trump will incorporate this "investigation" into his reelection klan rallies. The OSG does love him some chants.

Guess they need to chant "lock her up" during the RNC. Lord knows they cant talk about how great trump is for 4 days, even though thats Trumps Ideal convention.
The difference between the Middle Ages, and the Age of the Internet, is that in the Middle Ages no-one thought the Earth was flat.

And also the DNC, should Bernie get the nod:

The Pied Pipers of the Dirtbag Left Want to Lead Everyone to Bernie Sanders
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/29/us/p ... house.html
“Let the hate feed you,” the co-host Amber A’Lee Frost added as the audience roared.

And it does. Especially toward other Democrats.
:snippity:
When Hillary Clinton’s name came up, the reaction was nearly indistinguishable from a Trump rally.

“Lock her up,” the co-host Matt Christman said to the crowd.

The crowd began to chant: Lock her up. Lock her up.

“She never really cracked the glass ceiling,” Mr. Biederman said. “She more like fell down the glass staircase.”
I've heard this bull before.

Well, they sure as hell can't talk about how trump fucked up the COVID-19 response.

Or that he doesn't understand the difference between a vaccine and a cure.


Or that he can't order a vaccine ready in two months without trials.

Or that the stock market is still going down.

Or ...

Been saying since 2016 that he wants to destroy his perceived enemies. When he says someone is committing crimes, treason, whatever, he planning to destroy them.

Umm...weren't Benghazi and the e-mails two different "scandals"?
Edit: My mistake - Judicial Watch focused their suit on her Benghazi-related e-mails.

Wash. Ex.: Hillary Clinton asks appeals court to overturn order for deposition about email server and Benghazi:
Hillary Clinton asked an appeals court on Friday to overturn a judge's order for her to appear for a sworn deposition about her use of a private email server and the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack.

* * *

Clinton's legal team responded with an 83-page petition for a writ of mandamus filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, calling the district ruling outrageous and asking the appeals court to order the lower court to correct the ruling.

The legal team for Clinton said reversing the order “is warranted because Judicial Watch’s impending depositions of Secretary Clinton and Ms. Mills are inappropriate, unnecessary, and a clear abuse of discretion.”
And, mind you, this isn't about Benghazi or the contents of her butter emails; this is about the State Department's efforts to respond to Judicial Watch's FOIA requests.

And about what exactly is she supposed to give testimony? How the State Department handles FOIA requests?? Somehow I doubt that she is the person most knowledgeable at the State Department on that subject. And to every single of the questions that they would try to sneak in about her emails, Benghazi, Vince Foster, etc., it seems to me that her counsel objects as out of bounds and tells her not to answer, telling the other attorney to complain to the court. After all, IIRC, the judge's order did limit the scope to FOIA type matters. And hell, videotape it and make these assholes looks like the clowns and assholes they are.

Forgive the recent rants, I am getting very angry and the morphine, oxy and norco are not doing shit for my back.
bring out the tumbrils -- lots of them.

It is as if the impeached president has no idea his administration has been fighting Judicial Watch.

Wash. Ex.: State Department won't support Hillary Clinton effort to dodge deposition over email server and Benghazi:
The State Department declined to join former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s effort to convince an appeals court to let her dodge a judge-ordered sworn deposition about her use of a private email server and the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack.

“The Court agrees with Judicial Watch — it is time to hear directly from Secretary Clinton," U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ruled in March while also ordering former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills to be deposed by the conservative watchdog.

Clinton's legal team responded last month with an 83-page petition for a writ of mandamus, filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, calling the district court ruling outrageous and asking a higher court to order the lower court to correct what Clinton's lawyers saw as a deficient decision.

But the State Department, represented in court by Justice Department lawyers, declined to join Clinton’s legal argument on Friday.

“The government did not seek and thus does not support the extraordinary relief of mandamus due to the unique circumstances of this case,” DOJ appeals lawyer Mark Freeman told the higher court in a seven-page filing. “This is the rare situation in which discovery of a former Cabinet Secretary was not authorized for the impermissible purpose of probing internal government decision-making regarding official policy, but rather to focus on the impact on FOIA compliance of a former official’s unusual decision to use a private email server to systematically conduct large volumes of official business.”

Freeman said “the government’s decision not to seek mandamus here — after each of the discovery orders, not only the most recent — reflects the government’s consideration of the totality of the circumstances in this unique case.”
The State Department's not joining Clinton's petition is a little too inside baseball, but a red-meat headline nonetheless.
