As much as she’d like to put it all behind her, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized private email server scandal simply won’t go away, even as she essentially begged a court on Tuesday to make the whole thing disappear, the Washington Examiner reported.
In a virtual hearing with a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for D.C., Clinton’s attorneys asked the judges for a writ of mandamus that would force a lower district court to overturn its own ruling in March that Clinton needed to appear for a deposition regarding her email server situation.
That deposition is sought by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which argued to the court all of Clinton’s emails still had yet to be discovered or turned over in compliance with the Freedom of Information Act.
Clinton’s attorneys countered that the deposition sought by Judicial Watch was nothing more than “harassment” that should be blocked by the court.
It is difficult to say how the three-judge panel — which reportedly included two Obama nominees and one from George W. Bush — will rule, but an opinion on whether Clinton must appear for the deposition or not is expected to be issued within the next couple of weeks.
