BREAKING: Federal Court Grants Hillary Clinton’s Motion to Intervene in Judicial Watch Benghazi FOIA Case

Judicial Watch announced that a federal court ordered a hearing for Thursday, August 22, 2019 on Hillary Clinton’s email/Benghazi scandal.

The conservative watchdog group was seeking a deposition from Hillary Clinton and on Wednesday, the court granted Hillary Clinton’s motion to intervene in Judicial Watch’s FOIA case that broke her email scandal wide open.

As previously reported in December, Judge Royce Lamberth, a Reagan appointee, ordered senior Obama administration officials, including lawyers and aides from the Clinton State Department to be deposed and or answer written questions under oath.

The court ordered discovery into three specific areas: whether Secretary Clinton’s email use of a private email server was intended to stymie FOIA; whether the State Department’s intent to settle this case in late 2014 and early 2015 amounted to bad faith; and whether the State Department has adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s request. Judicial Watch deposed nearly a dozen witnesses and will seek addition witnesses and documents from the court, including the deposition of Hillary Clinton and Cheryl Mills, her chief of staff at State and personal lawyer who directed the destruction of 33,000 State Department Clinton emails. Lawyers for Clinton and Mills are expected at the hearing Thursday.

“Judicial Watch’s has recently gathered troubling, new evidence about the Clinton email scandal and we hope the court will grant us additional discovery to get more facts,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “And it is outrageous that the Justice Department continues to try to shield Hillary Clinton on her email misconduct.”

On Wednesday a federal court granted Hillary’s motion to intervene in Judicial Watch’s FOIA case.

“Mrs. Clinton does not wish to be questioned by our attorneys,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said in a tweet.
