On Wednesday evening, the corrupt Justice Department sought to stall a court-ordered discovery plan, citing the government shutdown, according to Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton.
A federal judge ruled on Tuesday that discovery can begin in Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
The discovery was scheduled to be completed within 120 days.
Judge Lamberth also ordered senior Obama officials to provide written answers to Judicial Watch under oath.
Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes will be deposed under oath on the Benghazi scandal.
Last week Judicial Watch submitted a court-ordered discovery plan seeking depositions from top Obama officials involved in Hillary Clinton’s email scandal including Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes.
The discovery plan stems from a December, 2018 ruling by Judge Royce Lamberth ordering the State Department and DOJ to submit discovery in three areas.
Judge Lamberth called Clinton’s use of the private email server “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”
The DOJ fought against Judicial Watch and colluded with Hillary Clinton’s cronies to limit discovery, and now the DOJ is seeking to stall a court-ordered discovery plan.
