Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group filed a motion as part of their lawsuit to compel testimony from Hillary Clinton and her top aides while she was Secretary of State under President Obama. This freedom of information act civil lawsuit was filed in order to obtain the release of documents regarding Clinton’s email scandal, in addition to the Clinton Foundation and Benghazi scandals.
Judge Emmet Sullivan, the presiding judge on the civil lawsuit, ruled in favor of Judicial Watch’s motion to take testimony from Clinton, Clinton’s longtime adviser Huma Adedin, Clinton’s former chief of staff Cheryl Mills, and State Department’s computer technician Bryan Pagliano.
“Based on information learned during discovery, the deposition of Mrs Clinton may be necessary,” ruled Judge Sullivan. This ruling will compel Clinton to answer detailed questions about her creation of the email server, as she mounts her campaign to win the Democratic presidential nomination.
The FBI is continuing a criminal probe into Clinton’s use of her private email server for classified State Department use.
UPDATE: Clinton’s longtime adviser Huma Adebin was interviewed by the FBI regarding a criminal probe of Clinton’s private email server and a date for an FBI interview of Clinton is expected in the coming weeks, according to CNN.
