As the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) gets closer to filing a criminal indictment against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, the Obama White House just intervened to protect Hillary.
This case involves a motion filed through the justice department by conservative organization Judicial Watch. Now, Obama’s Justice Department has filed a motion opposing the request to have Hillary deposed, where she would be forced to answer questions about her criminal behavior as Secretary of State.
It looks like Obama is Hillary’s “Get Out of Jail, Free” card!
Judicial Watch is “seeking instead to transform these proceedings into a wide-ranging inquiry into matters beyond the scope of the court’s order and unrelated to the FOIA request at issue in this case,” government lawyers wrote in their filing, referring to the Freedom of Information Act.
The lawyers wrote that the request to interview Clinton “is wholly inappropriate” before depositions are finished in a separate case also concerning the email server.
Judicial Watch’s FOIA case began as a way to seek documents about talking points related to the 2012 terror attack on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, but has since grown to encompass wider questions about Clinton’s use of a personal server while working as secretary of State.
Last week, Judicial Watch asked the court to interview Clinton and five other current and former State Department officials about the server, after it received a judge’s permission to move ahead with the process.
The case is the second in which Judicial Watch has been granted approval to depose witnesses to gather evidence about Clinton’s email setup. In the other case, interviews of current and former Clinton aides have already begun.
Via The Hill
This is disgusting. America is a nation of laws, and no politician should be above the law. While the President does have the power to pardon, he should not stop corruption from being exposed at the highest levels of the federal government.
This is a serious coverup for political reasons. Hillary Clinton has put our national security at risk, and now it’s time to learn just how bad the damage was. The American people deserve answers before the November elections.
What do you think about Obama making sure Hillary doesn’t go to prison? Please leave us a comment (below) and tell us.
