Will Hillary Clinton Testify?
“Judicial Watch Attorney Ramona Cotca, who presented the argument, has been the key lawyer on this email case since the beginning” – Fitton stated in last week’s Weekly Update as he congratulated her on her work on the case.
With Hillary Clinton’s testimony still up-in-the air after her recent writ of mandamus (appeal) to the court – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton can only speculate as to the direction the case will take. Nonetheless, in Fitton’s words “if the court is following the law, we’ll win, if not, we’ll lose,” highlighting, in his view, a straightforward right or wrong outcome.
As you might recall, initially “even the Justice Department couldn’t stomach” her writ of mandamus appeal, Fitton affirms. Now, however, “we can’t even get the Justice Department to come in and argue against Hillary Clinton, even though they know she’s legally wrong – and have told the court in writing that she is!” “We just want to get through these Clinton email cases, we just want to end them and keep it behind us,” Fitton stated as he paraphrases the DOJ’s characterizations of the case.“They don’t have one wit of concern about the misconduct, about the accountability,” he continues. However, despite the DOJ’s disagreement over her appeal, Fitton asks Attorney General Barr:
“Why on earth would you allow your attorneys to come into court and basically dismiss the concerns of tens of millions of Americans about the misconduct of Hillary Clinton?”
As Judicial Watch awaits clarity on the case, Fitton confirms that the organization has been given the green light “to get a subpoena from Google on Clinton’s emails. It looks like one of her email vendors might have sent all of the emails to Google,” he continues. Furthermore, in that investigation, Judicial Watch has uncovered “a remnant of emails that hadn’t been turned over.” Clinton’s response, in Fitton’s words, continues to be “what difference does it make?” “The fact that the Justice Department is in court saying they just want to get it behind them is completely outrageous,” Fitton concludes.
