Federal Judge Rules Hillary Clinton Must Sit For Deposition

Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton refuses to stay out of politics.

Clinton has already chimed in on the current 2020 Democratic candidates and defeating President Donald Trump.

Now, she’s dominating headlines for a new reason.

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

Clinton’s team argued she has already answered questions about this and should not have to do so again, but D.C. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth said there were still more questions that needed to be answered.

“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, this delaying the final disposition of this case even further.”

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.

The State Department has been pushing for the discovery phase of the case to come to a close, but Lamberth said he is not ready to do so, saying that “there is still more to learn.”

Clinton’s name has been weaving in and out of headlines lately.

Last week, it was reported that Clinton is launching her own podcast in the late spring.

Before that, several Democratic aides revealed that Clinton has been working behind the scenes with Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren.

Clinton and Warren have apparently developed a close political friendship that could be pivotal to deciding the Democratic presidential nomination.

Sources claimed that Clinton has kept in touch since Warren announced her decision to seek the Democratic nomination back in February.

One Democratic strategist said Clinton “loves” Warren’s campaign style and the slew of radical, far-left policy proposals she has unveiled.

Some are speculating that Clinton could be running to be Warren’s running mate in what could be an all-woman ticket in 2020.

It is almost too easy to see exactly what’s going on here.

But the ruling this week from a federal judge could push away anyone considering having Crooked Hillary anywhere near their campaigns.
