DOJ “Collusion”: How Hillary Clinton Is Avoiding Her Testimony
“It’s pretty clear that they [the DOJ and State Department] are colluding with Clinton’s lawyers,” Tom Fitton stated in last week’s Weekly Update.
Judicial Watch is undeterred by Hillary Clinton’s appeal to avoid testimony on her unresolved email scandal.“I can announce to you today that we will appeal that decision over her testimony,” Fitton stated in reference to Hillary Clinton’s appeal to avoid testifying about her use of a private server during her tenure as secretary of state.
Appealing her appeal, Judicial Watch is seeking to ensure Hillary testifies in accordance with her court-ordered deposition originally scheduled for May of this year by Judge Lamberth, the United States District Judge for the District of Columbia. While the DOJ is unlikely to overturn her appeal, in Fitton’s view, the Department did previously side with Judicial Watch “agreeing with that she shouldn’t be able to benefit from this extraordinary mandamus relief,” a position Fitton described as “outrageous.”
As Fitton explained:
“People think that President Trump’s appointees are on on our side, but they’ve been captured by the deep state it’s pretty clear, otherwise we wouldn’t have the cover up we’re facing and disclosing to you,”
The “taxpayers dollars burned and wasted” to defend Clinton are not just about protecting her from scrutiny, Fitton argued. “It’s also about protecting the agencies from accountability.”
As the Judicial Watch President concluded, “we’ll see what Judge Lamberth does and whether he shuts it all down. The case shows you how hard it is for Judicial Watch to work for justice.
As you might recall, Clinton’s defense team sought to prevent “the depositions of Clintons’ former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills as well as current and former State Department technology officials,” Fitton explained. “As we argue, the ruling did not bar the deposition of Mills or any other witness.”
