Judicial Watch, the interest group that won the right to force Hillary Clinton’s top aides to testify on her secret email system, petitioned a federal judge Friday to force Mrs. Clinton herself to sit for a deposition, saying there are questions only she can answer about how she handled her messages.

Neither of Mrs. Clinton’s close personal aides, Huma Abedin or Cheryl Mills, were able to shed light on why she created the secret email system in the first place, Judicial Watch said in a court filing, so the former State Department secretary herself must answer those questions.

“It was her system. She was the primary driving force behind it and was its principal user,” Judicial Watch said. “Without Secretary Clinton’s testimony, there can be no fair, rightful and conclusive answer to the court’s questions.”

Judge Emmet G. Sullivan set a hearing for July 18 to consider the request, and ordered Mrs. Clinton’s lawyers to file briefs next week laying out their position.

    I Hope this judge allows Judicial Watch to put her on the stand under oath! They have been the driving force about a lot of discovery and FOIA on Clinton. They do the heavy lifting which Congress should be doing!! Contribute to their cause,
    what they do costs a lot of money!

    Aw, the righties are squealing like pigs, as usual. Anyone know how many times Orange Head pleaded the 5th during his divorces? If you guess an average of 104 for each divorce proceeding, you’d be correct! Gee, I wonder what the Nazi was hiding. Probably had something to do with his Tax Returns. Then he paid-off each of the Ex-wives and mistresses and forced them to sign non-disclosure documents for the bribe money they received. Wow, the American Hero, right? And you goofs are worried about Hillary?

  • The Redhawk

    YEAH… She’l JUST LIE under oath….and GET away with it…OBAMA and LYNCH have already DECLARED IT!!!

  • Hope this happens, as she needs to see she is not above the law.

  • Glenn HENDRIKSEN

    ….. “KILLary/billARY”/the great “FRAUD” & company (DUMBOears) ‘lynch’WORTHY ……….. are ABOVE/BEYOND the laws of the United States of America …….. seems quite apparent the REVOLUTION has begun !!

  • ralph

    Because her and Obama worked hand in hand to create ISIS arm them and set them free on the world while given them total support and protection and they are still doing that to this day

  • Snoopy

    Won’t do any good – She lies better “under oath” than just standing on the street corner!!

  • Mike

    this is ridiculous. there have been 7 investigations into Benghazi and parts of which have concerned this email now a special interest group gets to? Come on this is ridiculous.

  • Triple J Jackson

    Now watch her lie her way right out of this too. I can’t understand how anyone would vote for her. I’d much prefer crusty the clown than her for president.

    • Snoopy

      How about “Old Mac Donald”?? He could hire his “farm hands” as “Czars”!!!

      • Triple J Jackson

        We already have a bunch of Qwack ,Qwacks There. And a oink oink running for president with her Moo Mooslim there next to her

        • Snoopy

          … in her bed!!

  • Jose

    Any request will be intervened by either obama, the AG, FBI stating that there is no need for further testimony as she has already provided that to the FBI even though it was not under oath or recorded. Either that or her attorneys will request extension after extension until another judge (in the pocket) rules to stop all action.

  • justinwachin

    I’m not sure what will be gained by putting Hillary under oath. In this week’s congressional hearing it became obvious Hillary had perjured herself in her sworn testimony to Congress. If they don’t charge her with perjury no other group will be able to do so.

  • Owen Grant

    All together now, everybody say 5th amendment!

  • uhptony

    What happens if Judicial Watch is successful, questions her before a judge and she lies again? Will she be charged with perjury?

    • Worried Vet

      She will not lie but plead the fifth. She will not be stupid enough to make a mistake of perjury now. The only hope is for Congress to bring perjury charges now and that’s a slim hope. The Clinton’s, the media and liberals have way to much power right now. The only way the Clinton’s will ever be charged with anything is if Trump wins and appoints a fair and honest AG. We have to beat them at their own game by voting For Trump. He may not be the best but he sure as hell is better than a lying, crooked Hillary. Wake up people she is not responsible enough to handle classified information how can she be POTUS with her finger on the nuclear button. Really that’s not rocket science to figure that out.

  • Dolores Adams

    If Judicial watch would be able to put her under oath, she either wouldn’t show up or just lie again.

  • Diane Brenner

    The reason some individuals achieve the status of being “above the law,” is because like minded voters give it to them.

    • Glenn HENDRIKSEN

      …. such as the naive/IGNORANT “sheeple” who make up todays society of so-called ‘ones’ claiming to be ameriKans !

  • Rodney Steward

    They should all face the firing squad, U don’t spend half your life work, or stealing from the Gov. and not know the rules! She knows she’s above the law! And I’ve been saying for a while that NOTHING WILL BE DONE, and STILL WON’T! This is the pick of the system, POWER!!!

    • Cookie Vranish

      I’m afraid you are correct! She will just plead the 5th as many times as it takes. The Clinton Crime Family would make the Genovese Crime Family look like amateurs!

  • Mike Tanco

    She has already testified under oath and lied. Once is enough folks; it’s a felony. Now, if you want to put a lie detector on her that would be good.

    • Wildeagleone

      If this fuching administration watched her commit cold blooded murder, they would econrrste her stating they couldn’t prove INTENT

  • Shelly Shannon

    She shouldn’t have a problem giving a deposition under oath if she is as innocent as she says she is.

    • unbridled

      I don’t see the difference. She lied to everyone else and got away with it. Seems like lying is no big deal for her. It’s expected and maybe even accepted….

      • Shelly Shannon

        That’s my point exactly. The difference to me is that if someone has to lie to cover up the truth , and I’m not just talking about this situation but many, many others over the past 30 years, then she has earned the right not to be trusted with our safety and security amoung many other things where the presidency is concerned.

        • unbridled

          Agreed 100%.

      • Shelly Shannon

        Not only that unbridled…If she lies under oath it is a completely different situation. This is why a referral was given to congress to get a copy of the transcripts to confirm she lied under oath.

        • unbridled

          You mean the referral that was deemed necessary by comey to in order for the congressional committee to get the transcript of hillery’s testimony to the fbi.
          One thing….I don’t believe, or at least word was, that the fbi didn’t make hillery swear to tell the truth. That was what one report had said. The whole thing is a sham….

          • Shelly Shannon

            No. This the transcript where Hillary Clinton testified under oath to congress while she was asked about her emails during the Bengazi investigation by congress. The republican senate wants to know if she lied to congress about the emails, which I can tell you she did. I watched the complete thing from beginning to end, all eleven hours worth and she lied to them the same way she did us. The FBI didn’t talk to congress during their investigation. That’s the reason for the referral. There are extreme consequences for lying under oath and that’s the only time she was under oath.

          • Rodney Steward

            From a person that has said that there are people in this country that have deep seated Religious beliefs and that changes have to be made, has no problem lying under oath, she will walk!

          • Shelly Shannon

            I’m not disputing that. Your right, she might, but it will make things a lot harder for her.

          • Rodney Steward

            I sure hope so, for the sake of our country!

          • unbridled

            Okay, I’m confused. Who’s looking to gain the transcripts and from whom? If she lied to congress under oath they already know it. I thought they were looking to gain the fbi transcripts because comey claimed that she didn’t lie to the fbi. If the transcript from the fbi shows the same lies as she made under oath to congress then it means comey accepted the lies as truth and he is complicit in the crime?…NO?

          • Rodney Steward

            He’s following orders! There’s no way Opey’s going to let anything happen to Hellary, she has WAY to much on him, and he knows it!

          • unbridled

            Oh, without a doubt! The pants suit prostitute knows exactly who the Hamster in the people’s house IS and where he CAME from and where he was BORN. She tried to roll over him in the ’08 primaries but was stopped by a misplaced bullet to her favorite lawyer’s forehead as a warning. The people, for whatever reason, would believe her if she had dropped that bomb and the Hamster would still be making little ones out of big ones if she had…….

          • Rodney Steward

            Now, if only she could find that bullet to the forehead!

          • unbridled

            From your lips to God’s ears….

          • Shelly Shannon

            Comey has to have a referral from congress to act on what Hillary Clinton told them while she was under oath. The FBI didn’t speak to congress during their investigation because they didnt have the referral. Even if the FBI knows she lied to congress they cannot act on it without the written referral.

          • unbridled

            Okay but it would also be nice to know what hillery told the fbi that they consider to be the truth. Comey said she didn’t lie to them. That would knowing what questions they asked of her in 3.5 hours of questioning in order to compare that to what she told congress….

          • Shelly Shannon

            Yeah, you got me there dude. I don’t think we will ever know exactly what she said to the FBI, but then it doesnt matter because they didnt put her under oath. The descepancy lies within the statements Comey made that points to her quilt and the excuses they made to not bring charges especially when those same laws don’t apply to everyone else. So the only way to actually make her take responsibility for what she’s done is to try to go after her if she lied to congress under oath. I feel your frustration. Let’s just hope and pray she doesn’t make it to the white house.

          • unbridled

            It’s amazing that the fbi insisted it was a CRIMINAL investigation without having any knowledge of what a informal review was and then they depose the perpetrator without an sworn oath or without video & audio records. Congress should demand to know what the 3.5 hours of deposition included. Their has to have been at the very least a stenographer taking notes.
            Comey’s an idiot if he didn’t have at least that much to protect himself and the agency. He’ll wind up in prison before she does otherwise….

          • Shelly Shannon

            Your right. You would think so. When she testified to congress they did take a transcript of everything she said. Comey has put himself in a bad position. He should watch his back because in all 30 years of following Clinton activity, there is no doubt they will go as far as they have to to protect themselves from any type of reprocussion. We all learned that about them years and years ago.

          • unbridled

            Your right. In fact, if you include the latest “ACCIDENT” that took place in a gym in Westchester, NY I believe that their are some 48-50 examples of just how far they are willing to go….

          • Worried Vet

            You make a very good point. Why would it be a criminal investigation and when she testified she wasn’t under oath? This sounds fishy to say the least. I have been keeping up to date on this and have yet to see your point brought up, even by the GOP. What’s up with that? Really I gave a deposition once and had to be sworn in. She should have also unless she really is above the law and the FBI is protecting her.

          • Carl Lewis

            The transcripts are from the Bengazhi hearings, and Jaffetz is going to see that Comey gets them in a “referral”. This done because Congress, by itself, lacks prosecutorial powers, even though Clinton commited perjuy by lying about her emails. The FBI will be the one to prosecute Ms Clinhon
            for her perjury.

          • unbridled

            Yeah, I hope it goes better than the case that they just investigated with 147 agents for a period of one year just to ignore the law and come up empty.
            Lets hope that they compare what the pants suit prostitute told them to what she told congress under oath. Better yet the fbi should be made to turn over whatever transcripts they may have of the clinton fbi deposition so that a compassion can be made by congress or anyone that cares….
