Hillary Clinton blaming othersA government watchdog that investigates D.C. corruption is getting closer to a huge legal win: putting Hillary Clinton under oath in a deposition. 

Judicial Watch has announced a federal judge has granted it additional discovery related to Clinton's use of a private, unauthorized email server.

Clinton and Cheryl Mills, her former top aide and current lawyer, were given 30 days to oppose being deposed by Judicial Watch, and the court rejected Justice and State Department arguments to protect Clinton and the agencies from additional discovery.

Instead, agency lawyers were ordered to respond to Judicial Watch's questions about their knowledge of the Clinton email issue.

Farrell

Chris Farrell, director of investigations and research for Judicial Watch, says the judge has “indicated” to the watchdog group and its attorneys that Clinton will be put under oath for questions and answers.

Although she was questioned by the Justice Department about the email server, Clinton did so without being under oath. Critics contend that was a generous allowance afforded to few others.

“The FBI did just sort of a coffee and donut session, a little chit chat with her,” Farrell says of Clinton. “She needs to be sworn and she needs to be asked tough questions." 

Farrell tells OneNewsNow the legal timeline is now in a “waiting period” of legal briefs to await a final decision.
