Remember how O.J. Simpson was found “not guilty” of two murders during a criminal trial, but then“responsible” in a civil suit brought by the victim’s families? Well, Hillary Clinton’s legal troubles aren’t over, and this time, it’s a civil lawsuit over her email server that is causing her nothing but grief.
She and her lawyers are so terrified, they’re doing something for the first time, and it doesn’t look good.
According to Politico:
Lawyers for Hillary Clinton are going to federal court for the first time to block efforts to force her to testify in a civil lawsuit related to her private email set-up.
Clinton’s attorneys submitted a legal filing Tuesday morning in a bid to shut down a conservative group’s request for an order forcing her to submit to a deposition in the midst of her presidential campaign.
Judicial Watch has asked to depose Clinton in a pair of Freedom of Information Act lawsuits which have raised questions about whether her private email system was created in part to avoid making messages accessible under FOIA.
Polls show that the public are increasingly distrustful of Hillary Clinton in large part because of this private email server scandal. There’s no way this story can be spun to make Clinton look good, either. Whether she testifies or not, she’ll likely come out looking worse than ever.
