BREAKING: Fed Judge Authorizes Judicial Watch to Depose Ben Rhodes IN PERSON After He Defies Court Order to Answer Written Questions Under Oath
Not. Tired. Of. Winning.
Another win for Trump supporters today!
On Monday, a federal judge authorized conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch to depose Obama’s speechwriter-turned-Iran-echo-chamber Ben Rhodes after he defied a court order to answer questions under oath.
Obama hack Ben Rhodes was ordered by Judge Royce Lamberth to answer questions under oath about the Benghazi scandal — but last week he defied the court order.
Even worse, the State Department and Justice Department were objecting to Judicial Watch who then sought an in-person interview with Mr. Rhodes – but Judicial Watch never backed down and won!
In January, Judicial Watch submitted a court-ordered discovery plan seeking depositions of Obama-era officials connected to the Benghazi scandal, including Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes.
The discovery plan stems from a December, 2018 ruling by Judge Royce Lamberth ordering the State Department and DOJ to submit discovery in three areas.
Judge Lamberth called Hillary Clinton’s use of the private email server “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”
Ben Rhodes is an Obama-era White House deputy strategic communications adviser who attempted to orchestrate a campaign to “reinforce” Obama and to portray the Benghazi consulate terrorist attack as being “rooted in an Internet video, and not a failure of policy,” Judicial Watch wrote in a blog post last week.
Judicial Watch seeks the depositions of former U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice and former White House Deputy Strategic Communications Adviser Ben Rhodes about the creation and dissemination of the infamous Benghazi talking points because: “No one other than these individuals know better who they were communicating with and where records might be located.”
Thank you, Tom Fitton!
