Feds fight to prevent Clinton deposition in email case

Guess who else has had about enough of this silly crap?

The Obama administration is trying to prevent former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from being deposed in an ongoing open records case connected to her use of a private email server.

Late Thursday evening, the Justice Department filed a court motion opposing the Clinton deposition request from conservative legal watchdog Judicial Watch, claiming that the organization was trying to dramatically expand the scope of the lawsuit.

Judicial Watch is “seeking instead to transform these proceedings into a wide-ranging inquiry into matters beyond the scope of the court’s order and unrelated to the FOIA request at issue in this case,” government lawyers wrote in their filing, referring to the Freedom of Information Act.

The lawyers wrote that the request to interview Clinton “is wholly inappropriate” before depositions are finished in a separate case also concerning the email server.

Judicial Watch’s FOIA case began as a way to seek documents about talking points related to the 2012 terror attack on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, but has since grown to encompass wider questions about Clinton’s use of a personal server while working as secretary of State.

The fact that many here have latched on to those jackasses is appalling.

4. All of this crap originates from Benghazi committee...

the rightwing Judicial Watch and decades of long-term Republican think tank strategy.

It's red-meat for Republicans - but it's mash potatoes and gravy when they get Democrats to take the bait!

It's like how they have propagandized Citizens United and convinced the 'left' that Hillary loves it - when she was the freakin' original target!!!

7. Citizens United

Beyond knowing that it's bad (well, no shit), they have no idea what it is, who was behind it, or what it was about. None.

On the bright side, I know that anyone who says she supports it can be summarily dismissed.

12. Why should Judicial Watch have any standing for this?

It should be handled by a govt agency.

13. Witch hunt.

Although her deposition would be a thing of beauty, judging from her performance at the 11 hour Benghazi hearing.
