Judicial Watch Submits 25 Questions To Hillary Clinton About Personal Email Use – Responses Due September 29th...
Judicial Watch was one of the first organizations to discover the hidden use of Hillary Clinton’s private email account to keep activity hidden from public review.
As a consequence of a long standing Judicial Watch FIOA court battle over State Department documents relating to the private email and private server, Judicial Watch requested to depose Secretary Clinton to answer questions.
The request for direct deposition was denied by the court, choosing instead to first order questions be asked/answered in writing. Whereby: on August 19, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan granted Judicial Watch further discovery on the Clinton email matter and ordered Secretary Hillary Clinton to answer the questions “by no later than thirty days thereafter....”
Under federal court rules, Judicial Watch was limited to twenty-five questions. Today Judicial Watch submitted the questions, starting the 30 day clock for responses.

In its July 2016 request to depose Hillary Clinton, Judicial Watch argued:
Judge Sullivan also ordered that Judicial Watch may depose the former Director of Information Resource Management of the Executive Secretariat (“S/ES-IRM”) John Bentel by October 31.
The questions and deposition arise in a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit before Judge Sullivan first filed in September 2013 seeking records about the controversial employment status of Huma Abedin, former Deputy Chief of Staff to Clinton. The lawsuit was reopened because of revelations about the clintonemail.com system. (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:13-cv-01363)).
Judicial Watch has already taken the deposition testimony of seven Clinton aides and State Department officials.
