Obama Steps In To Defend Hillary: DOJ Fights To Block Clinton Deposition



Zero Hedge: “If there was any doubt, or suspense on which side of the Hillary email scandal the “impartial” Department of Justice stands, the suspense was lifted and all was revealed yesterday when as The Hill reported, the Obama administration stepped into the ongoing Judicial Watch lawsuit and is fighting to prevent former SecState Hillary Clinton from being deposed.

Late Thursday evening the Justice Department, under US attorney general Loretta Lynch, first appointed in 1999 by none other than Bill Clinton,  filed a court motion opposing the Clinton deposition request from conservative legal watchdog Judicial Watch, claiming that the organization was trying to dramatically expand the scope of the lawsuit.

As a reminder, as revealed last night, in the first deposition from the ongoing Judicial Watch lawsuit – which has obtained or seeks depositions from all SecState staffers close to Hillary – we learned thanks to State Department veteran Lewis Lukens, that not only did Hillary not know how to use a computer but that her email actually had no password protection.”

Opinion: Connecting the dots:

1999 – Loretta Lynch appointed U.S. attorney for New York’s Eastern District by then-President Bill Clinton.

March, 2013 – a Romanian hacker named Marcel Lazăr Lehel, aka ‘Guccifer’, disclosed the existence of a private email address belonging to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

November, 2014 – President Barack Obama nominates Loretta Lynch to succeed Eric Holder as Attorney General.

March 2, 2015 – the Hillary Clinton email controversy began as  The New York Times reported that Clinton’s exclusive use of a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state “may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record.”

April 27, 2015 – Loretta Lynch was appointed Attorney General of the United States.

February 8, 2016 – Republicans in Congress call on Loretta Lynch to step aside in Hillary’s email investigation.
