According to recent reports, a federal judge has just ordered Hillary Clinton to answers questions from Judicial Watch about her use of a private email serve while she was secretary of state. The order was issued in response to a lawsuit filed by the conservative watchdog group,
Originally, the group sought to question Clinton under oath and in person, but U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan only ordered the former secretary of state to answer questions in writing.
Last month, FBI Director James Comey announced that the agency would not be indicting Hillary Clinton, although he confirmed she had been “extremely careless” in her treatment of our country’s sensitive information.
Chris Farrell, Director of Investigators at Judicial Watch, said that the decision is a huge victory for the organization.
“Judicial Watch will get Clinton under oath regarding the set-up of her outlaw server—something no other person, organization or agency has been able to do, to date,” Farrell commented. “We believe it is a victory for law and order to get Hillary Clinton under oath answering questions about the server setup and why she did it.”
Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon responded to the order, stating the campaign was “glad” the judge is allowing Clinton to answer questions in writing.
“This is just another lawsuit intended to try to hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign, and so we are glad that the judge has accepted our offer to answer these questions in writing rather than grant Judicial Watch’s request,” Fallon commented.
Judicial Watch is ordered to submit their questions to Clinton by Oct. 15. From that point, Hillary will have 30 days to respond.
