Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Judge Halts Depositions for Bill and Hillary Clinton

Oh it’s on! No, wait, it’s off.

A federal judge has blocked activist Larry Klayman’s plans to force Hillary and Bill to testify in depositions stemming from a lawsuit claiming the Clinton Foundation operated as a racketeering enterprise shaking down donors in exchange for official favors.

A U.S. District Court judge, at the request of Clinton lawyers, issued an order barring the depositions in Washington next week. The order does not offer a reason for the ruling.

What’s this all about?

To begin, Larry Klayman. Klayman is a former prosecutor and a “politically conservative American public interest lawyer.” He works in large part by filing lawsuits and using those suits to pry information out of the government. Many of his legal actions are dismissed on motion even before getting into the courts, but the information remains. Klayman has been called a “Clinton nemesis” for his dozens of lawsuits against the Bill Clinton administration in the 90s. He is the founder of Judicial Watch and the government watchdog group Freedom Watch.

Klayman, however, is no Republican stooge. He has brought legal action against Dick Cheney, Barack Obama, OPEC, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and the NSA. He wins some, he loses some, but always returns to the attack.

In this latest suit, Klayman alleges that Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state interfered with responses to Freedom of Information Act requests he filed and that the Clintons used the system to obscure a scheme to trade official favors for donations to the Clinton Foundation.

Hillary, of course, disagrees.

The depositions Klayman seeks, now blocked, are part of the legal discovery process, where witnesses are interviewed by lawyers from both sides ahead of going to court. Evidence is gathered, and sometimes out of court deals can be made. For now at least, Klayman is blocked from this process.

The sad thing is that Klayman only seeks to ask Hillary and Bill the same kinds of questions most of us would like to ask, and that the media should be asking anyway. And hey, Hillary, since you always have told the truth and always will tell the truth, why are you so afraid of a few more questions?
