The Depositions Continue to be shown tot he public, and new info comes to light with every passing depositions.
A New Daily Caller article released Yesterday shows:
“A State Department official who works in the part of the agency that handles public records requests has undermined a key claim that Hillary Clinton has made in defense of her unorthodox email practices.
Here are some important points from the Deposition:
1) not “reasonably possible” to obtain Hillary Clinton’s emails through the Freedom of Information Act.
Apparently, Then director of executive secretariat staff and designated representative Karin Lang and the state Department had searched the e-mail collection of Clinton, but couldn’t search some of these emails due to the “custodian”, or by sender / recipient of the email.
However, for some reason, they cannot search the 70,000 employees worldwide, which raises the question that the Government record keeping system was not in compliance w/ policy and did not allow easy access to search for an FOIA request.
2) Finney had been informed in 2008-09, that Clinton would not be using a government email account.
“A State Department official produced to answer questions in a civil lawsuit probing Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server said no officials responsible for handling public records requests knew of her private email account while she was secretary, but was instructed not to answer whether the department’s top legal office knew, according to a transcript released Thursday.
In a six-hour deposition Wednesday, answers provided by Karin M. Lang seemed to corroborate several defenses raised by Clinton and her aides in the handling of the controversy, while challenging other explanations given in a lawsuit by the conservative group Judicial Watch examining whether Clinton’s email setup thwarted the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
Judicial Watch’s lawsuit concerns a 2013 request for public records information about Clinton aide Huma C. Abedin’s employment arrangement.
Lang, a career employee who in July 2015 became director of the Executive Secretariat staff, which is responsible for records management, said that while a unit responsible for FOIA requests was told that Clinton had no government email account when she took office in January 2009, no one in the unit ever asked whether she used a personal account to conduct business before she stepped down in 2013.”
NO ONE ASKED CLINTON ABOUT THE EMAIL SERVER DURING HER TENURE AS S.O.S.
Why? Why did no one ever confront her?
