A federal judge orders Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes to answer written Benghazi questions in Clinton email lawsuit.
Former national security adviser Susan Rice and former deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes must answer Judicial Watch’s written questions under oath about the Benghazi terror attacks.
The Obama regime will go down as the worst administration in our history.
A federal judge has breathed new life into questions surrounding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and the 2012 attack that killed U.S. officials in Benghazi, Libya.
Judge Royce Lamberth ruled Tuesday that Obama administration officials, including national security adviser Susan Rice and deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes, must answer written questions as part of a conservative judicial advocacy group’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department over Clinton’s emails.
The lawsuit by Judicial Watch – now with the U.S. Court of Appeals District of Columbia Circuit – was first filed in 2014 in an effort to obtain records related to Clinton and her staff’s response to the Benghazi attack. Specifically, the group sought documents about Rice’s explanation immediately after the attack on the U.S. compound that characterized it as a protest turned violent instead of a deliberate terrorist assault. At the time of the attack, Rice was serving as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
“But the case has since expanded to question the motives behind Clinton’s private email use while Secretary and behind the government’s conduct in this litigation,” Lamberth wrote in his Tuesday order.
Judicial Watch claims that Clinton intentionally used her private email server in an attempt to shield her communications from FOIA requests and that the State Department acted deceptively and did not really try to complete the request. More
Judicial Watch is actually trying to accomplish something, get answers that “law enforcement” did bother seeking. Please keep up the pressure!
It is absolutely appalling that it requires an outside private organization to extract the details of this crime from public officials. Judicial watch has succeeded where Congress has completely failed. The Clinton Cartel needs to be brought down.
