A federal judge has ruled that failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton must answer more questions about her emails and the failures surrounding them. These answers also must be given under oath.

According to The Daily Caller:

A federal court is compelling former secretary of state Hillary Clinton to respond to further questions — under oath — about her notorious emails.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan issued the ruling Wednesday in response to a lawsuit from Judicial Watch, the conservative research and investigative group that has long had its sights on both of the Clintons.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton was jubilant about the decision in a Thursday morning tweet: “Breaking: Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions — including key [questions] about the setting up of her email system.”


The decision is the result of a Freedom of Information lawsuit initiated by Judicial Watch that sought to clarify why Clinton’s executive assistant, Huma Abedin, was authorized to be both an employee of the State Department and a “special government employee” for outside jobs, according to news release issued Thursday by Judicial Watch.

Clinton will have 30 days to respond as to how she set up her private email server while serving as Secretary of State and whether the State Department issued any guidance on how to use those servers.

This ruling gives new life to the investigation into Clinton's use of her private email server. Former FBI Director James Comey suspiciously cleared her during the election, and this could shed new light on that clearance.
