Judge Orders Hillary Clinton to Answer for ‘Home-Brew’ Server

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan issued an order late Friday afternoon ordering former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and two of her most intimate State Department aides, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, to account for, under penalty of perjury, their use of Clinton’s ‘home-brew’ server kept at her Chappaqua, New York home during Clinton’s four-year tenure as secretary, as well as any official documents in their possession.

The order came in a FOIA lawsuit by Judicial Watch that was re-opened by Judge Sullivan in June after Clinton’s circumvention of the FOIA laws was revealed when news broke of her use of the private server.

Judicial Watch posted the text of the ruling. (Paragraphs added.)

As agreed by the parties at the July 31, 2015 status hearing, the Government shall produce a copy of the letters sent by the State Department to Mrs. Hillary Clinton, Ms. Huma Abedin and Ms. Cheryl Mills regarding the collection of government records in their possession.

These communications shall be posted on the docket forthwith. The Government has also agreed to share with Plaintiff’s counsel the responses sent by Mrs. Clinton, Ms. Abedin and Ms. Mills. These communications shall also be posted on the docket forthwith.

In addition, as related to Judicial Watch’s FOIA requests in this case, the Government is HEREBY ORDERED to: (1) identify any and all servers, accounts, hard drives, or other devices currently in the possession or control of the State Department or otherwise that may contain responsive information;

(2) request that the above named individuals confirm, under penalty of perjury, that they have produced all responsive information that was or is in their possession as a result of their employment at the State Department. If all such information has not yet been produced, the Government shall request the above named individuals produce the information forthwith;

and (3) request that the above named individuals describe, under penalty of perjury, the extent to which Ms. Abedin and Ms. Mills used Mrs. Clinton’s email server to conduct official government business.

The Government shall inform the Court of the status of its compliance with this Order no later than August 7, 2015, including any response received from Mrs. Clinton, Ms. Abedin and Ms. Mills. Signed by Judge Emmet G. Sullivan on July 31, 2015.”

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton issued a statement on the ruling.

This blockbuster ruling is the most significant legal development to date in the ongoing Clinton email scandal. Hillary Clinton will now have to answer, under penalty of perjury, to a federal court about the separate email server she and her aides used to avoid accountability to the American people.

This court action shows that the rule of law and public’s right to know will no longer take a back seat to politics. Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration that is covering for her are not above the law.”

    This is laughable at best—This is the caliber of leadership the Democrats have to offer! We have no leadership at the time. and this mook has all the leadership qualities of a Nancy Pelosi–Im thinking “mass of cells” kinda like the stuff Planned Parenthood sells!

    REALLY????? So what positives outside of Unicorns and lollipops were you hoping for from the great Oz?

    Many Kudos to

    Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton for his tireless work on this.

    America has been waiting, well, those of us who care. Tired of it ALL!! I wonder if we will hear her say, “what difference does it make, (if she lies again).”


  • jainphx

    And they never will until a judge grows a pair and jails them for contempt Let them sit for a couple of weeks in orange, and watch the squealing.

  • Patty

    Hillary’s lies and deceiving America really “bits.” It took a while but how is she going to squeeze her way out of this one. It will be interesting to watch.

  • jainphx

    With those cankles she cant squeeze out of anywhere!!!

  • jainphx

    I love that “goonesses” Haha!

  • johnfarmingdale

    What server? 🙂

    This Judge will soon be disbarred and destroyed for having the gall to think the Law applies to Democrats, and a Clinton in particular.

    Planned Parenthood Received Millions of Dollars After Lobbying Clinton’s State Department

    Hillary will never be the next President of the United States.

    The Clintons are Pathological Grifters, and the Bush Family loves em both!

  • Alex

    In law abiding country Hillary would be in prison a long time ago with Huma, of course. Huma and Muslim brotherhood was planted a long time in our country, I think since MB liked Anwar Sadat(ex president of Egypt).

  • Anonnie1

    I can feel my own brain cells dying after reading that. Smartest woman she is not!

    I think prison stripes will make her look fat(er) :)~

  • Dopey

    Transparent. Wants to do her part. Then why are these requests still being made?

  • Impeach Obama Now!

    I vote for Hillary to be the head Sandinista for Nicaragua! She would make the perfect Dictator and they would just love all of her free promises and lies! She would fit in perfectly!

  • ZZZzzzz

    Yep, the 3 Stooges are not above the law. Under penalty of perjury, nice, I’m hoping she ends up in prison along with Huma and Cheryl. All of them have been lying for years. Everything she handed over was so heavily redacted and Hillary thought Americans would buy her BS about most of them having to do with Chelsea’s Wedding and Yoga. Does anyone believe this liar even does Yoga? Having this Home Brew Server put Americans at risk and 4 died, if not more, directly because of her and her 2 Liars in Crime.

    Now if they could just get Lois Lerner in front of this same judge.

  • Finncrisp

    The idea that the Secretary of state issued or received no classified information is preposterous. Concealment of Clinton Foundation payoffs comingled with official business is clearly the only reason to do this. the Hag needs to be held fully accountable. Her staff also is deeply implicated. ENOUGH.

  • canuck

    This judge is a hardass…he also has the IRS case. He is black so they can’t scream all the racists, bigot accusations. It also appears he is getting fed up with the government lying to him and ignoring his orders for his language has gotten stronger and the is threatening putting the government lawyers in jail for contempt.

  • wasitsomethingisaid

    I believe he is the same judge who is about to hold the head of the IRS and DOJ lawyers in contempt.

  • CurtNewton

    Vertical stripes do thin the image.

  • ridgerunner

    Hillary is prima facie evidence of #WhitePrivilege. Hope the judge is as offended by it as I am.

  • mg4us

    The damn may be about to break with Huma being the target of criminal act. .

    Let’s not forget her aide. . Huma Abedin. .wife of Weiner and friend of the Muslim Brotherhood

    looks like someone was double dipping. . no not Bill or Weiner but Huma

  • haywire63

    The only way to get to the bottom of all these scandals is to put someone in jail. They will sing like a bird.

  • Rick Turner

    The wife of sex wierdo Anthony Weiner and and wife of another sex weirdo, Bill Clinton have lots in common.

  • OldSailor

    Clinton should be ordered by the court to produce the server immediately or face jail for contempt until she does, no excuses like “I broke it” or “it was destroyed” because she was ordered to produce ALL the emails on that server years ago when we knew it was still operational.

    No, I don’t think it’s been destroyed yet. If she has to sit in the DC city jail for a few months, so be it. I am sick and tired of politicians who think they are above the law or think they are smarter than all the rest of us.

  • Kat

    Didn’t MB assassinate Sadat?

  • SWohio

    I believe that Hillary is withholding documents because the judge is black (sarc).

    So much for her concern for the fair treatment of black folks (not sarc).

  • SWohio

    I have a really stupid question. Did Weiner have a cameo in Sharknado 4?

  • SWohio

    Thinking the same thing. At the very least he will be audited to death, but I think he is a good deal tougher and smarter than the criminals he is dealing with.

  • Servo1969

    I hear lots of barking but I don’t see any biting. Until I see Hillary in court it’s all just…. meh.

  • Ubeturbipy

    This has gone on way to long. Throw her sorry incompetent a## In jail until all records are received and questions answered.

    Contempt of Court = Jail until they provide an answer to this judges’ satisfaction.

  • TexasPigHunter

    Sadly nothing will come of it … all the Elites are above the law.

  • TexasPigHunter

    Can you imagine the funk when those three get together …

  • Huma

    What Difference, at this point, Does It Make???????

  • Avery Bierce

    No, the judge did not order Hillary to do anything. She’s not even a party in the case before him. He ordered the State Dept to request her to make a statement under oath.

  • W.N. First

    Yeah, sorry but I don’t have much confidence in a judge appointed by Bill Clinton being anything other than a show for the low info crowd on this crime.
