No one has yet been able to question Clinton about her private server under oath – not the FBI, not Trey Gowdy — no one. Until now.
Ed. Note: Finally a judge has ordered Hillary Clinton to respond UNDER OATH, because she has “unique first-hand knowledge” of why she used an e-mail system that shielded her communications from public. But he gave her a pass by allowing testimony to be written.
Other issues of Mrs. Clinton’s first-hand knowledge include:
- In emails she tells her daughter and others that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, yet tells the public that it was some crazy protesters mad about a Youtube video
- In emails she told aides to strip off classified marks and send them to her unsecure, yet told the public that she did not send or receive classified material
- Emails show that the DNC tried to rig the election against Bernie Sanders, yet she lied about it and then hired the head the leader of the rigging work
- A video shows that she landed safely in Bosnia and secured a warm welcome, yet told the public that she had been in the middle of sniper fire
Is this behavior that the American people can trust and reward with their votes?

Judicial Watch must submit its questions by October 14th and she has 30 days to respond – which means her answers could potentially be delayed until after the election. Obviously we’re hoping Judicial Watch submits those questions by like…Monday.
Here is the organization’s official statement on the ruling:
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan’s decision granting Judicial Watch permission to submit interrogatories to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and to depose the former Director of Information Resource Management of the Executive Secretariat (“S/ES-IRM”) John Bentel:
“We are pleased that this federal court ordered Hillary Clinton to provide written answers under oath to some key questions about her email scandal,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “We will move quickly to get these answers. The decision is a reminder that Hillary Clinton is not above the law.”
The court order reads:
[T] the State Department shall release all remaining documents responsive to Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act request by no later than September 30, 2016; and it is FURTHER ORDERED that, consistent with Rule 33 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Judicial Watch may serve interrogatories on Secretary Clinton by no later than October 14, 2016 … Secretary Clinton’s responses are due by no later than thirty days thereafter … Judicial Watch may depose Mr. Bentel by no later than October 31, 2016.
In his opinion Judge Sullivan writes:
The Court is persuaded that Secretary Clinton’s testimony is necessary to enable her to explain on the record the purpose for the creation and operation of the clintonemail.com system for State Department business.
Naturally, the Clinton campaign went into spin mode, trying to prevent a tailspin. Fox News reports campaign spokesperson Brian Fallon said “Judicial Watch is a right-wing organization that has been attacking the Clintons since the 1990s. This is just another lawsuit intended to try to hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign, and so we are glad that the judge has accepted our offer to answer these questions in writing rather than grant Judicial Watch’s request.”
The hits on Hillary Clinton just keep on coming. So far nothing has seemed to stick to knock her off her pedestal. Do American’s know the real corruption of Hillary Clinton or are American’s so corrupt that they don’t care?
