Hillary Clinton may not be in the clear just yet in regards to her emails and setting up of a private server.
From Daily Caller:
A federal court is compelling former secretary of state Hillary Clinton to respond to further questions — under oath — about her notorious emails.
U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan issued the ruling Wednesday in response to a lawsuit from Judicial Watch, the conservative research and investigative group that has long had its sights on both of the Clintons.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton was jubilant about the decision in a Thursday morning tweet: “Breaking: Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions — including key [questions] about the setting up of her email system.”
Clinton has 30 days to respond to questions about how she set up her private email server and “whether the State Department ever issued any orders or instructions regarding the use of that server.”
Judicial Watch had filed a FOIA action to find out how Clinton’s executive assistant, Huma Abedin, was authorized to be both an employee of the State Department and a “special government employee” for outside jobs.
Clinton now has to answer questions about that and the set up of the server.
Clinton’s private server and the sending and receiving of classified information over it were critical issues during the 2016 campaign.
While former FBI Director James Comey improperly assumed the duty of announcing there would be no prosecution of Clinton, Clinton was shown to have sent and received classified information. While Comey called her actions “extremely reckless,” he declined to prosecute saying quixotically he couldn’t find any “intent” behind her actions.
