Federal Court Orders Discovery on Clinton Email, Benghazi Scandal: Top Obama-Clinton Officials, Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes to Respond to Judicial Watch Questions Under Oath


About time for accountability.


(Washington, DC) — 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. The court rejected the DOJ and State Department’s objections to Judicial Watch’s court-ordered discovery plan. (The court, in ordering a discovery plan last month, ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”)
Judicial Watch’s discovery will seek answers to:

    • Whether Clinton intentionally attempted to evade the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by using a non-government email system;

    • whether the State Department’s efforts to settle this case beginning in late 2014 amounted to bad faith; and

    • whether the State Department adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request.


Discovery is scheduled to be completed within 120 days. 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.
Judge Lamberth ordered written responses under oath to Judicial Watch’s questions from Obama administration senior officials Rice, Rhodes and Sullivan, and former FBI official Priestap. Rice and Rhodes will answer interrogatories under oath on the Benghazi scandal.

About freaking time. Obama, Rice and Rhodes have all been primary players in propaganda nation. And with too much of the press missing in action, it's time somebody stood on the pathway to ruin and said, "You shall not pass!" While they are at it, investigate the funding for all propaganda operations, both right and left.

I will never understand how the left can object to big money in politics in the past and just accept David Brock, George Soros and their ilk. Obama, Rice and Rhodes should never have gotten away with it and would not have with a press corps committed to confronting power and seeking the truth.

Go for it, guys! Let's see what ya got! How many times has this been investigated now? But hey, maybe they'll find something this time to put them all in prison, lol!
You don't have to put anyone in jail to explore political mercenaries and the death of journalism. The willingness to bend over under the antics of the political elites and their agents only requires journalism.

Hehe. The wingnuts have been going after Clinton on Benghazi for well over six years now, and have failed to find anything. But, I suppose, at this stage, they're not actually holding out hope that passing over the same ground for a hundredth time will turn up something they somehow missed every other time. Instead, the hope is simply to find a story they can push into the mainstream in hopes of distracting from the Russia probe.

If crimes are not suspected then why are they doing this? And if they committed the kind of crimes you and others have suggested, then they certainly should go to prison.

As far as Democrats accepting big money, they haven't really had a choice. As long as the game is played that way they have to in order to be elected. But they're attempting to make changes in campaign finance laws. Will the Republicans allow those changes? I somehow doubt it.
