FITTON: Deep State DOJ Protecting Hillary Clinton – DOJ Objects to Request For In-Person Interview With Obama Hack Ben Rhodes (VIDEO)

The Deep State is protecting Hillary Clinton to help overthrow President Trump, said Tom Fitton.

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said on Wednesday that Obama’s former speech writer-turned-Iran-echo chamber Ben Rhodes is no where to be found and appears to be defying a court order to answer questions under oath about the Benghazi scandal.

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.

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

Judge Royce Lamberth, who called Hillary Clinton’s use of the private email server “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency,” ordered Ben Rhodes to answer questions about the Benghazi scandal under oath — but he’s defying the order.

Never one to back down, Judicial Watch then sought an in-person interview with Ben Rhodes, but the Deep State DOJ and State Department objected to their requests!

The DOJ is harassing President Trump while providing cover for Obama and Clinton, said Fitton.

“Outrageously, the Justice Department is telling the court that they don’t think that we should be able to depose Ben Rhodes,” Fitton said in a weekly briefing. “In fact, they [DOJ] just filed a brief saying that there should be no video depositions released, they should be put under seal of the government employees who we’re going to be questioning.”
