Finally! Some good news. Federal Judge Royce Lamberth has ordered Clinton aides and lawyers, including Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes to answer written questions pertaining to the State Department’s response to the Benghazi attack as well as the use of her private email and server.
Judicial Watch announced today 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.
Judicial Watch will seek answers to whether Clinton intentionally attempted to evade the Federal of Information Act by using her private email and other questions related to the email scandal.
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.
Federal judge Royce C. Lamberth has ordered former national security adviser Susan Rice and former deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes to answer written questions pertaining to the State Department’s response to the Benghazi terror attack in 2012.
Last month Lamberth slammed the State and Justice departments for their response (or lack thereof) to inquiries made about Clinton’s private email server.
He referred to Clinton’s use of her private email and server to avoid public scrutiny of her activities as Secretary of State as “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency” and said the subsequent responses from the State and Justice Departments “smack(s) of outrageous misconduct.”
He further wrote “At worst, career employees in the State and Justice departments colluded to scuttle public scrutiny of Clinton, skirt FOIA, and hoodwink this court.”
Why he would be shocked is beyond me. Time and again we have been witness to Hillary Clinton’s and her State Department corruption. I will leave you with this tweet from Charlie Daniel:
Benghazi ain’t going away!
