Judge sets hearing on demand for Hillary Clinton deposition

A federal judge has set a hearing for later this month on a conservative group's demand that Hillary Clinton testify in a civil lawsuit relating to the home-based email server she used as secretary of state.

After Judicial Watch made the request Friday afternoon, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan almost immediately ordered the government to respond by Tuesday and he set a hearing on the issue for July 18. That happens to be the first day of the Republican National Convention and a week before the opening of the Democratic National Convention, where Clinton is expected to receive the Democratic presidential nomination.

Sullivan previously authorized the conservative watchdog group to conduct depositions of several former aides to Clinton, including former chief of staff Cheryl Mills, deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin, computer specialist Bryan Pagliano and current Undersecretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy. The testimony was ordered in connection with a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit Judicial Watch filed seeking records about Abedin’s employment arrangements.

In its motion Friday, Judicial Watch said the deposition of Clinton is needed because the earlier testimony failed to clarify why Clinton used the private email system and whether it was intended to frustrate Freedom of Information Act requests.

1. And now the American people get to flex their real muscles

Via a deluge of FOIA requests.
Oldenuff called it.

2. This woman needs to be held accountable for her lies and deception

It's obvious to anyone with an IQ over 50 that she set up the server in order to keep all her email private, in clear violation of FOIA and The Federal Records Act.

She needs to be tarred and feathered in the media.

(to the alert-happy: I am not proposing that she be physically tarred and feathered, just figuratively in the press)

5. Unfortunately Hillary will never be held accountable nor will she be "tarred and feathered "..

by the main stream media. Hillary is above the law and the liberal press has her back.

3. You guys should just try democracy.

All of this subterfuge, calumny, and rigging is beneath people who want to be considered respectable. Beat Hillary by getting more votes. That's what the good Americans would do.

8. In a well functioning representative democracy there is something called the rule of law. ...

This rule would apply equally to all from the lowest peon to the highest ranking officials.

It is somewhat questionable if our nation ever was a truly well functioning representative democracy but it may have came close. Today it appears to have become an oligarchy and is rapidly in the process of turning into a banana republic.

Hillary is not the only individual at high levels of our government who has ignored the rule of law and walked away scot-free. Officials in both recent Republican and Democratic administrations have overstepped the boundaries. Each case has set a precedent that leads other such people to assume they also can.

The watchdog in a well-set-up representative democracy is the free press which in our case was established in our First Amendment. Unfortunately over the years our press has largely failed to live up to its responsibility. While the mainstream media will usually latch onto a scandal like a Bulldog when it involves a high ranking Republican it acts more like a Chihuahua when a high ranking Democrat is involved.

More and more people in our nation are growing aware that those we elect to represent us have fallen under the corrupting influence of Big Money. The rich donors, the pharmaceutical industry, the big corporations and the military industrial complex have been able to buy and own many in Congress and even determine who represents them and not us while occupying the Oval Office. That helps to explain the phenomenon of Bernie and Trump.

Your suggestion that good Americans should vote for good candidates who WILL represent them is valid. The sad part is that we can try but our chances of success in a system so corrupted by Big Money is not all that great. Add to that the fact that our educational system has failed to properly educate our citizens in how our government should work and its history and we have a big problem taking back our government.

4. The deposition

if it ever happens will likely consist of "I do not recall" and "I am invoking my 5th amendment rights" ad nauseam.

6. Of course it was to avoid FOIA

Setting up and maintaining your own email server is not "convenient"
