Hillary Clinton was terrified that her shady dealings had caught up with her.
She’s unable to move past a major scandal.
Hillary Clinton paced the floor as the Supreme Court held her future in their hands.
Former Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton recklessly used a personal email to send classified information while serving as Secretary of State under Obama.
The FBI found that Clinton had behaved “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”
But even though then-FBI Director James Comey admitted that there was “evidence” that she might have violated laws, he didn’t recommend an indictment.
Comey said that “although there is evidence of potential violations,” no reasonable prosecutor would take on the case.
The conservative legal group Judicial Watch wanted to depose Clinton, her aide Cheryl Mills, and other State Department employees over Clinton’s emails and seek public access to State Department emails on the matter.
However, the Supreme Court on Monday denied the appeal by Judicial Watch.
“In an unsigned order issued with no comment, the justices denied an appeal from the conservative legal group Judicial Watch, mainly keeping in place a federal appeals court ruling from last August which stated that Clinton could not be forced to sit for a deposition.” Breitbart News reported.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton issued a statement in response to the Court’s move accusing them of upholding a double standard. He said the justices “drop[ped] the ball . . . again” by not requiring Clinton to sit for a deposition.
“Hillary Clinton ignored the law but received special protection from both the courts and law enforcement,” Fitton said. “For countless Americans, this double standard of justice has destroyed confidence in the fair administration of justice. Americans would never have known about Hillary Clinton’s email and related pay-for-play scandals but for Judicial Watch’s diligence.
“We expect that the Biden State and Justice Departments will continue to protect her and cover up their own misconduct as we press for additional accountability through the courts.”
The federal statute makes it a crime to “knowingly remove [classified] documents or materials without authority and with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location.”
Former CIA director David Petraeus pleaded guilty for mishandling classified information because he stored handwritten notebooks with highly classified data in an unlocked desk drawer at his home.
Clinton’s husband, Bill Clinton, had pardoned former CIA director John Deutch, who was reportedly going to take a plea from the Justice Department for keeping a government-owned computer at his house with classified material on it.
Yet Clinton has avoided having to answer questions about the emails under oath.
