The conservative group Judicial Watch has received responses from a Clinton lawyer regarding her email server, responses submitted “under penalty of perjury.”
It relates to a FOIA lawsuit filed by the group over documents relating to the former first lady’s tenure as our top diplomat at the State Department. The answers to the 25 questions are fraught with Clinton not being able to recall key details about her private email arrangement at State, which wasn’t approved by officials. That talking point, in which Clinton said it was approved by the State Department, was blown up with the IG report last May. The ongoing debunking of Clinton email narrative has torpedoed her trust and honesty numbers with voters, half of which feel that her server was illegal.
The answers to the questions rehash what the FBI found about the investigation, but first—Clinton’s supposed amnesia about her email server (via Associated Press):
Clinton lawyer David Kendall provided the Democratic presidential nominee’s sworn responses to 25 written questions submitted by Judicial Watch. The group has filed multiple lawsuits seeking copies of government documents from Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.
Clinton’s answers provided no new information beyond what she told FBI agents during the recently closed investigation into whether she and her staff mishandled classified information.
In her responses, Clinton used some variation of “does not recall” at least 21 times.
For example, Clinton was asked when she decided to use her private email account to conduct government business and whom she consulted in making that decision.
Clinton said she recalled making the decision in early 2009, but she “does not recall any specific consultations regarding the decision.”
Asked whether she was warned that using a private email account conflicted with federal record-keeping rules, Clinton responded that “she does not recall being advised, cautioned, or warned, she does not recall that it was ever suggested to her, and she does not recall participating in any communication, conversation, or meeting in which it was discussed.”
In September, when the FBI released their notes about their investigation into the Clinton server, where we found that some emails discussed possible future drone strikes. The FBI also noted Clinton note being able to recall any training about the retention of federal records or handling classified information.
