Hillary Clinton



In case you missed it, Hillary Clinton lost an appeal in court on June 2, and will have to testify later this year.

The former secretary of State had been trying to avoid testifying under oath about her emails and the Benghazi case.

On Tuesday the appellate court considered a request, known as a “petition for writ of mandamus,” to overturn an order issued by U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth requiring Hillary Clinton and her former Chief of Staff, Cheryl Mills, to testify.

The hearing, which went laregly unnoticed and unreported, was held by teleconference, in U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit

According to Judicial Watch, On March 2, 2020, Judge Lamberth granted Judicial Watch discovery that includes taking testimony from Clinton and Mills, under oath, regarding Clinton’s emails and the existence of records about the Benghazi attack. In April, Judicial Watch and the State Department, which is represented by Justice Department lawyers, filed responses opposing Clinton’s and Mills’ request to overturn the order requiring their testimony.

On March 2, the lower court issued a statement, saying that Clinton’s testimony was necessary:

“The Court has considered the numerous times in which Secretary Clinton said she could not recall or remember certain details in her prior interrogatory answers. In a deposition, it is more likely that plaintiff’s counsel could use documents and other testimony to attempt to refresh her recollection. And so, to avoid the unsatisfying and inefficient outcome of multiple rounds of fruitless interrogatories and move this almost six-year-old case closer to its conclusion, Judicial Watch will be permitted to clarify and further explore Secretary Clinton’s answers in person and immediately after she gives them. The Court agrees with Judicial Watch – it is time to hear directly from Secretary Clinton.”

Clinton had argued that she shouldn’t be required to testify because she was a former high-level government official and that the FBI already tried to retrieve her emails from numerous sources when it investigated allegations of classified information being improperly stored or transmitted on the personal e-mail server she used while serving as Secretary of State.

However, Clinton will have to answer questions from lawyers for the conservative advocacy group as the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals submitted the case which will now be heard on September 9th.

You’re literally insane. This article is totally fake. A two minute web search can confirm that. Of course you can’t expect a Trump supporter to recognize a lie when they see/hear one. They just giggle with glee and run with it as long as it supports their narrative. How many times will you be fooled by “your own” before it sinks in? Ignorance sure is bliss, huh?

Don’t be so sure, as a long-time student of Astrology I can tell you Hillary is ripe for the unearthing of her corruption and for the facing of her karma. And yeah, I am absolutely serious about that. She got hit in a big way by May’s full moon among other transits portending her comeuppance.
She will face justice of one sort or another.
Namaste.

🤦‍♀️ Qanon is a club for the mentally ill. Get help. This blog is complete BS. Do you not have the slightest idea how to verify and vet news sources or do you just assume the “left wing media” is trying to dupe you by not reporting it? They are capitalists. They report anything they can verify that draws attention. THIS is easy to verify bc of public court records. Do you care? Of course not bc you’re f-ing crazy!!

In case nobody remembers..she already testified..once for 11 hours..throughout numerous hearings..which the GOP admitted was designed for political expediency..to give them an edge. They admitted knowing after the first hearing there was nothing to find..that this comes at a moment just before another election 4 years later smacks of more political shenanigans..and another waste of taxpayer’s money.

@Patricia Rizzuto ~ Thank you for your sane and rational comment. I watched much of the Benghazi hearing and Hillary Clinton was unflappable in her intelligent responses to hostile questions. Isn’t it interesting that the right wing is trying to drag Hillary into the limelight again to distract from the grievous misdeeds of trump the incompetent.

And she lied through her teeth then too. This time that will not only be perjury (as it was then, but Obama’s AG wouldn’t bother with that) but it will be in a court of law where there are remedies for such skullduggery.

Exactly! We’re sinking so far into debt having this clown burning through tax payers money as if we had unlimited resources. He’s hell bent on bankrupting us like he did so many of his rotten businesses just to satisfy his personal vendettas. BTW, Australian fact checkers pegged this as FALSE. I suspected when I saw the “news” in meme form on social media. So sad that many people are more trusting of memes or blogs over vetted news articles! (Always check for bylines and Google the publisher which SHOULD be provided at the bottom of the website to recognize the… Read more »

Re: HRC Appeal. Someone should tell Tom Fitton @ JW because he said on 9th June “We may win, we may lose” @ 4;15 in this video – https://youtu.be/OwCmboxdMlE. Methinks Joshwho is dreaming as there has been no decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit.

This article is utter bullsh*t. A two minute fact check is all it takes to unearth that (if it wasn’t already blatantly obvious by it only appearing in meme form on social media sites or “faux news” alt-right blogs designed for and by the mentally ill.).

Look in the mirror Joanne Powell. The Democratic party has been fibbing to you from day one and will continue as long a people sharing your views allow it.
