The Lawyers Who Could Take Down Hillary Clinton’s Campaign

In February, a federal judge took the highly unusual step of ruling that State Department officials and aides to Hillary Clinton should be questioned under oath about her use of a private email server, a controversy that has dogged the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee for more than a year.
In comments from the bench, a visibly frustrated Judge Emmet Sullivan complained about the fragmentary way that new revelations about Clinton’s email use have come to light—largely through press reports and leaks and her shifting explanations for why she set up the server in her New York home rather than use an official “.gov” account when she was secretary of state.

“This is a constant drip… That’s what we’re having here, you know, and it needs to stop,” Sullivan said. He ruled that Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group that had brought a lawsuit seeking answers about Clinton’s email server, could question six officials and top Clinton aides about why the email system was set up in the first place and how it was used. Transcripts of those interviews must be made public.

Hillary lied under oath. Bill lied under oath. Dozens have taken the 5th to avoid self-incrimination, even though they were not being prosecuted, only interviewed. Others have been given immunity in one form or another for investigations yet to be conducted and what answers there are revealed.

What does the judge think will be achieved here?
