Judge threatens subpoena against Clinton over emails

by Stephen Dinan  |  published on February 24, 2016

A federal judge warned Tuesday that he may have to subpoena former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s entire secret email account, saying he has real questions about whether the Obama administration gave her special treatment.

In the interim, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan said he was granting discovery to Judicial Watch, a public interest law firm who’s sued to get a look at the emails, meaning the group will be able to demand the State Department explain who approved Mrs. Clinton’s server, how many officials knew about it, and what accommodations they made to her after her emails become a public issue.

And the judge said he is “inclined” to issue a subpoena eventually, forcing the department to go back to Mrs. Clinton and demand she turn over the entire clintonemail.com system she and top aide Huma Abedin used during their time in the department. He withheld that order for now, saying he will wait to see what discovery produces, but said he’s concerned with the chain of events that led to the emails being shrouded in secrecy for so many years.

“How on earth can the court conclude there is not at minimum a reasonable suspicion of bad faith,” Judge Sullivan said.

The Obama administration repeatedly tried to derail the judge, saying that the State Department has done everything it can, and that at this point the issue is in Mrs. Clinton’s hands, not the department.

    Why is America giving a free ride to Hillary on her corruption and email controversies. Congress and the Justice Dept. need to move on this now. She put America at risk and is running for POTUS with the record she has of public service? What Service? Are we kidding ourselves, she, like Obummer, has been on the public payroll the majority of her life, been fired for lying and accused of corruption, Accepts large contributions of money for her Foundation from foreign entities, questioned in the deaths of close associates and stood behind a husband who we know has had affair after affair (even in the oval Office). and she wants America to make her a world leader, are we joking here? Indite her now and find the truth, (something I believe she has no idea of what it means) if she’s found not guilty then she can move on, America needs to restore integrity to the office of President, sooner the better.

    Brave man, that Judge Sullivan, going up against both the Clintons and POTUS Obama. This needs to be done and is long overdue, but he’d better watch his back. He’ll need a strong spine to continue along this much-needed course of action.

      And also that he isn’t listed along with the other 67+ friends and acquaintances who up and DIED MYSTERIOUSLY being associated with the Clinton’s. May God Bless him and may the Honorable Judge Sullivan pursue this to the end. Hillary is a criminal and should be put away for a mighty long time.
