Federal Judge Denies Conservative Group Request To Depose Hillary Clinton Over Her Emails, But…
On Friday, a federal judge denied a request by Judicial Watch –a conservative watchdog group– to depose Hillary Clinton in person over her email server. However, judge Emmet Sullivan said Clinton will have to answer questions under oath from the group within 30 days, reported CNN.
Sullivan also denied Judicial Watch’s request to depose an official in the State Department’s Freedom of Information Act office, Clarence Finney, but approved their request to depose a former IT official, John Bentel.
The judge heard arguments on the deposition requests during a motion hearing in July on the subject of her email server, as well as her closed testimony to the FBI and open testimony to the House Select Committee on Benghazi.
