I believe in solving problems, not sharing them.

In what Judicial Watch describes as a "major victory for accountability," a federal judge ruled Tuesday that former national security adviser Susan Rice and former deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes must answer written questions about the State Department's response to the deadly 2012 terror attack in Benghazi, Libya, as part of an ongoing legal battle over whether Hillary Clinton sought to deliberately evade public record laws by using a private email server while secretary of state.

As Fox News' Samuel Chamberlain reports, the judge's order amounts to approval of a discovery plan he ordered last month. In that ruling, Lamberth wrote that Clinton's use of a private email account was "one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency" and said the response of the State and Justice Departments "smacks of outrageous misconduct."

Ya think?

Quote:

Judicial Watch announced last night that United States District Judge Royce C. Lamberth ruled that discovery can begin in Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers, and Clinton aides will now be deposed under oath. Senior officials - including Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes, Jacob Sullivan, and FBI official E.W. Priestap - will now have to answer Judicial Watch’s written questions under oath.

The court rejected the DOJ and State Department’s objections to Judicial Watch’s court-ordered discovery plan.

Judicial Watch’s discovery will seek answers to:

Whether Clinton intentionally attempted to evade the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by using a non-government email system;

Ya think? As a person who worked in a regulatory agency, when we were subpoenaed for our emails we didn't pick thru them and delete the ones that we (in our infinite individual wisdom) decided weren't relevant, we kept them ALL. And our IM combed through the server, dredging up whatever was relevant and which hadn't been overwritten, so that even some previously deleted emails bubbled up. And we didn't go around smashing our agency-issued laptops and phones with hammers. Sheesh.

Quote:

whether the State Department’s efforts to settle this case beginning in late 2014 amounted to bad faith; and

whether the State Department adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request.


Discovery is scheduled to be completed within 120 days. The court will hold a post-discovery hearing to determine if Judicial Watch may also depose additional witnesses, including Clinton and her former Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills.

Judge Lamberth ordered written responses under oath to Judicial Watch’s questions from Obama administration senior officials Rice, Rhodes and Sullivan, and former FBI official Priestap. Rice and Rhodes will answer interrogatories under oath on the Benghazi scandal. Rejecting the State and Justice Department objections to discovery on the infamous Benghazi talking points, Judge Lamberth reiterated:

Yet Rice’s talking points and State’s understanding of the attack play an unavoidably central role in this case: information about the points’ development and content, as well as their discussion and dissemination before and after Rice’s appearances could reveal unsearched, relevant records; State’s role in the points’ content and development could shed light on Clinton’s motives for shielding her emails from FOIA requesters or on State’s reluctance to search her emails.

Judicial Watch also may serve interrogatories on Monica Hanley, a former staff member in the State Department’s Office of the Secretary, and on Lauren Jiloty, Clinton’s former special assistant.

Either the wall is getting built or Hillary is going to jail.

In a perfect world we'd have both.

Hell. In a perfect world we'd lock up the entire Bush and Clinton families in the same 12x12 cell and make it a 24/7 reality show until the last one died.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

In a perfect world, Trump would make another series of McDonald's Big Mac ads. This comedy skit about serving burgers in the White House has a real Trump ad for McDonalds.

They can keep doing this forever, and they will. As always, nothing will happen. Judicial Watch is a reichwing shitshow dark money group, nothing more.

Trump, OTOH, is actually involved in multiple real scandals and is a traitor.

Why doesn't that bother you, Russian troll?

Because you keep saying that and there isn't any proof. lol

Why didn't direct collusion with Wolf Blitzer and the DNC regarding Clinton bother you?

I know the emails were gotten illegally, but that doesn't change the fact that Clinton had that server in her basement illegally or forgive her and the DNC from stealing the campaign from Bernie.

I would think that subverting the will of the people and absolute proof that the system we have in place was undermined by a woman you voted for would bother you more than chasing Russian ghosts from 40+ years ago.
