Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton probably thought her legal troubles were over after she lost her second presidential campaign.
She was wrong — and a U.S. District Court just announced that she’s wanted for questioning.
Legal watchdog group Judicial Watch won a lawsuit earlier this month that has compelled Hillary to submit answers on her illegal use of a private email server that was ultimately compromised by hostile foreign powers.
As of Nov. 14, Hillary has 30 days to answer two questions, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said.
Her answers will be under oath. That means if she lies (or intentionally omits the truth) she could be arrested for obstruction of justice.
Judge Emmet Sullivan has ordered Hillary to answer these questions:
- Describe the creation of the clintonemail.com system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.
- During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails “were in the State’s system” and “if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.” Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of these facts.
In the past, Hillary has refused to answer these two questions under oath.
Now, she’s compelled by law to answer — or else.
“A federal court ordered Hillary Clinton to answer more questions about her illicit email system – which is good news,” Fitton said in a Judicial Watch press release.
“It is shameful that Judicial Watch attorneys must continue to battle the State and Justice Departments, which still defend Hillary Clinton, for basic answers to our questions about Clinton’s email misconduct.”
