Is Hillary sworn deposition as to server next in Judicial Watch FOIA case?

By William A. Jacobson, Legal Insurrection, Aug. 17, 2015

Will Hillary Clinton be subject to a deposition under oath as to her use of various electronic devices and servers as part of the Judicial Watch FOIA federal lawsuit seeking records as to Huma Abedin’s outside employment?

That is a distinct possibility in light of the State Department’s apparent failure to comply with a Court order as to its efforts to search Hillary’s original server for records.

The Court, at the request of Judicial Watch, has expedited a status conference originally scheduled for September 10, to August 19:

"MINUTE ORDER. In light of the State Department’s August 14, 2015 Status Report and Judicial Watch’s August 17, 2015 reply thereto, a status hearing will be held on Thursday, August [19], 2015 at 12:00 p.m. in Courtroom 24A. The State Department shall file a reply to Judicial Watch’s August 17, 2015 response no later than 12:00 p.m. on August 19, 2015. Signed by Judge Emmet G. Sullivan on August 17, 2015. (lcegs4) (Entered: 08/17/2015)"
