State Dept Witness Testifies Hillary Clinton Was Fully Informed of Federal Records Management, Including Email Records on Six Occasions

Judicial Watch is fighting in court to depose Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton’s lawyers pushed back on Judicial Watch last month and argued that Hillary has already answered all the questions about her private server and Benghazi.

Judicial Watch rejected their argument and said Hillary’s answers about the use of her private server actually raised more questions.

Judicial Watch should be permitted to directly question Secretary Clinton about her motives, thoughts, and efforts regarding the “convenience” she relies upon in justifying her use of a secret, private server and email address in direct violation of federal records laws and State Department policies.

A State Department witness testified that Hillary Clinton was fully informed of federal records management on at least six occasions.

Clinton also suggests that her emails would have been captured by State Department records systems, which is contradicted by Tasha Thian, a retired senior State records official, recently questioned by Judicial Watch:

According to Ms. Thian’s testimony, there are at least six occasions Secretary Clinton was or should have been fully informed of federal records management, including email records, and compliance responsibilities. Yet Secretary Clinton’s actual understanding of her obligations with respect to official State Department records is completely absent from the record.

Thian implied that it was inconceivable that Clinton was not aware of her obligations regarding federal records and email management:

I don’t understand why she would come up with this statements that she was allowed – or how she would save record email by emailing another employee’s account. She had resources there aplenty. So it just doesn’t make sense to me.

[Even before taking office, Secretary Clinton] knew we had a process.

Recall, it was Judicial Watch in 2015 who blew the story wide open about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server while she was the head of the Department of State.

Hillary Clinton panicked and used BleachBit to destroy 33,000 emails and her aides took hammers to her BlackBerrys (all under congressional subpoena) in order to hide her Clinton Foundation pay-to-play scheme.

Judicial Watch has been fighting to get Hillary Clinton’s ‘missing’ emails ever since. Through FOIA lawsuits, Judicial Watch has obtained thousands of Hillary Clinton’s emails which proved she transmitted classified information over her private server and even outed the name of clandestine CIA officer.

Hillary Clinton is still freely walking around — meanwhile two of Rudy Giuliani’s associates were arrested Thursday for ‘campaign finance violations.’

“Hillary Clinton is now joking about her emails even as she seeks to avoid being questioned on this serious scandal,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The court has found that this email use and cover-up are no joking matter.”
