Hillary’s Appeal Gets No Help

Hillary's Appeal Gets No Help

(UnitedVoice.com) – On Sept. 11, 2012, the US Consulate and another US facility in Benghazi, Libya were attacked by terrorists. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the night of violence. The truth about what happened that night, including why the US government didn’t respond sooner is shrouded in mystery.

Many believe that then-Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, knew more than she said that night and in the days following the attack. Some even believe she had a hand in the abysmal lack of response and that the blood of these four patriots is on her hands. However, due to legal maneuvers on her behalf, she’s never been taken to task for that night.

Judicial Watch, a nonprofit activist group filed a Freedom of Information lawsuit in 2014 regarding Benghazi. This led to the discovery of Hillary Clinton’s private email server and email messages. Information on the Benghazi attack and her role in the response is believed to be the subject of some of these emails.

In the lawsuit, the group argued that they should be allowed to depose Hillary Clinton regarding the attack as well as about her emails and their mysterious disappearance when she left the State Department. Hillary has appealed this deposition request several times.

In March of this year, District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ruled in March in favor of Judicial Watch, saying “The Court agrees with Judicial Watch – it is time to hear directly from Secretary Clinton” thereby allowing the deposition to move forward.

Still not happy, Hillary and Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s former chief of staff, have now filed an emergency appeal against Judge Lamberth’s decision. This emergency appeal is known as a “Petition for Writ of Mandamus.” Judicial Watch responded with their argument to have this latest appeal denied, saying Clinton and Mills “must demonstrate they have no other adequate means of relief,” which was failed to be shown.

The State Department and the DOJ have refused to support Hillary’s appeal but not out of any wish to see her deposed. The DOJ’s long-standing policy is not to involve themselves with Writ of Mandamus cases. The agencies still maintain their support for Clinton.

Maybe one day, we will learn the truth about that horrible night in 2012, but we’re guessing Hillary has a lot more delay tactics up her sleeve before that ever happens.
