Court-Ordered Deposition Could Crush Hillary’s 2020 Comeback Ambitions
Seven years after she left her post as Barack Obama’s Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has been ordered to finally sit down and give an oral deposition related to her email treason server. Roll swiftly, wheels of justice!
This is a significant development in the Clinton email saga, because she’s already borrowed Kim Jong Un’s flashiest pantsuit for her triumphant speech at the brokered DNC Convention next summer, where she hopes to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders (again).
District Court Judge Royce Lamberth – a Reagan appointee – says that Hillary Clinton’s written deposition from several years ago in a different case was insufficient. Judge Lamberth is reportedly calm but furious over this case. The Department of Justice and the State Department have both attempted to get Lamberth to shut down this case. The two federal agencies failed to mention to the judge that they had “twelve banker’s boxes” filled with missing Clinton emails when they requested that he dismiss the case because they felt it was old news.
The case, by the way, is one brought against Clinton and the State Department by Judicial Watch. Since Congress couldn’t produce any results in its Benghazi hearings and every Department of Justice employee was wearing an “I’m With Her” campaign button in 2016, it’s been left to the private sector to try to get answers into the corrupt web that was the Clinton-run State Department and the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
Hillary Clinton provided answers in a separate court case in a written deposition – meaning her lawyers wrote out the answers for her. This time, however, the judge wants her to have to sit there and answer questions, verbally and in person. Unfortunately, she’ll probably show up for the deposition using her good friend and donor Harvey Weinstein’s rented medical assistance walker, and answer every question with, “You know, gosh, it all happened so long ago that I don’t recall.”
It would also be funny if she pounded her hands on the table and screeched, “At this point, what difference does it make?!” like she did every time a Republican Senator cornered her in the Benghazi hearing.
Judge Lamberth was not amused by the cutesy answers provided by Clinton’s attorneys in the written deposition, noting that it was “incomplete, unhelpful, or cursory at best.” He added, “Simply put, her responses left many more questions than answers.”
What’s unique about this case is that unless she manages to weasel out of this somehow, this will be the first time that Hillary Clinton has had to answer serious questions about her treason server while under oath and without a team of FBI fanboys conducting the interview in the privacy and comfort of her home. She’s provided answers about the subject in other cases, but never under oath and never on tape, like this will one will be.
As you probably remember, former FBI Director James Comey’s crack team of investigators didn’t bother to even keep notes when they interviewed her about the illegal server. Then, Comey exonerated her in his infamous “no reasonable prosecutor” speech – and was forced to reopen the case months later when a bunch of her emails were found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.
We know that Clinton broke the law and exchanged classified emails on that unsecured server nearly every day. The reason why we know this is because Guccifer 2.0 hacked the server (as did the Chinese, the North Koreans, the Iranians, Turkey, Pakistan, Yemen, Madagascar, Bolivia, etc., etc.). The emails were posted online for a time, and they had TONS of classified info on them for the whole world to see.
Unfortunately, they can’t be used as evidence against her because they were stolen – but we know they had tons of classified information in them that the FBI deliberately failed to find.
Judicial Watch has also been granted the right to depose four other witnesses in the case: Cheryl Mills, two State Department bureaucrats who knew about the treason server, and that poor IT specialist Paul Combetta.
Poor Mr. Combetta. He’s the one who Bleach Bitted Hillary’s emails for her. He’s also the weakest link in the chain, which is unfortunate for him. Mr. Combetta should probably avoid using dangerous exercise equipment until after he’s been deposed. He might want to get his brakes checked as well. *Cough, cough* Jeffrey Epstein! *Cough, cough*
While I’m excited that Judicial Watch attorneys will finally get to depose her, I remain disgusted with former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and current Attorney General Bill Barr. They could have taken care of this but chose not to in order to protect Hillary Clinton. We’ve never seen a more clear-cut case of a criminal act being committed – which Hillary admitted to – and yet here we are with Judicial Watch still uncovering answers almost eight years later.
