With Clinton possibly being forced to sit for another deposition it is possible new evidence may be uncovered as to her role in the Benghazi attacks, her suspected corruptions and handling emails in response to the Benghazi attack. She may even have to answer how she handled the election in 2016.
Discovery in the case began in December, 2018, when Judge Royce C. Lamberth allowed Judicial Watch to explore whether Clinton’s use of a private email server was intended to circumvent the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). JW also sought to determine: “whether the State Department’s intent to settle this case in late 2014 and early 2015 amounted to bad faith; and whether the State Department has adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s request.”
The court also authorized discovery into whether the Benghazi controversy motivated the cover-up of Clinton’s email. The court ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.” The State and Justice Departments continued to defend Clinton’s and the agency’s email conduct. –Judicial Watch
On Monday, Judge Lamberth overruled Clinton and the State Department’s objections to limited additional discovery, writing “Discovery up until this point has brought to light a noteworthy amount of relevant information, but Judicial Watch requests an additional round of discovery, and understandably so. With each passing round of discovery, the Court is left with more questions than answers.”
Politico had this to say:
…Lamberth said in his ruling Monday that the FBI probe and representations by the State Department have not adequately put to rest questions about the episode and Clinton’s deposition is needed to address those concerns.
“To argue that the Court now has enough information to determine whether State conducted an adequate search is preposterous,” wrote Lamberth, who has tangled with Clinton aides for decades in a series of cases.
While many will cheer and say that this is the tightening of the noose around Clinton’s corruption, the truth is this is just a reminder the Clintons have always been corrupt and they are always a source of scandal, drama and incompetence.
