Clock Ticking for Hillary Clinton as DC Judge Demands Answers Over Email Scandal

Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department earlier this month, requesting access to records related to the special employment status granted to ex-Clinton aide Huma Abedin while Clinton was secretary of state.

US District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan has ruled that Mrs. Clinton is obliged to answer two additional questions related to the long-running scandal involving her use of a private email server while she served as secretary of state, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton has reported.

Clinton now has 30 days to answer two questions under oath about how her private email system was set up. The first asks the former first lady to describe “the creation of the system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.”

Secondly, Clinton is asked to “identify the basis” for an apparent discrepancy between her 2015 testimony before the House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, where she indicated that 90-95 percent of her emails were on a government server, and later revelations that over 30,000 emails and attachments from during her 2009-2013 tenure as secretary of state were actually held on a private server in her house.

The court upheld Clinton’s right not to answer a question about why she continued to use her Blackberry mobile device despite warnings from State Department security personnel not to do so.
Judicial Watch filed the Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against Clinton and members of her staff, including former deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin, following revelations that the aide was granted “special government employee” designation, allowing her to accept outside employment while working at the White House.

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton called Judge Sullivan’s ruling “good news,” but said it was “shameful that Judicial Watch attorneys must continue to battle the State and Justice Departments, which still defend Hillary Clinton, for basic answers to our questions about Clinton’s email misconduct.”
