Hillary Aide Forced To Testify: Admits Using Illegal Account For Official Business

Thanks to Judicial Watch, which is basically conducting the real email scandal investigation, a top Hillary aide has been forced to admit using the illegal email account to conduct official business for the State Department.
by Georgette

A top Hillary aide admitted that he used Clinton’s illegal unsecured email account to conduct official State Department business.


Thanks to independent watchdog, Judicial Watch, Hillary and her cronies have been court ordered to answer questions involving the cover-up and protection of Clinton in “one of the gravest modernoffenses to government transparency,” according to the court.

Judicial Watch outlined the testimony (one of a number of people who’ve been ordered to answer for this scandal) in a press release:


Judicial Watch today released the transcript of a court-ordered deposition of Jacob “Jake” Sullivan, Hillary Clinton’s senior advisor and deputy chief of staff when she was secretary of state, in which the top staffer admits that both he and Clinton used her unsecure non-government email system to conduct official State Department business.

A full transcript of the deposition is available here.

Judicial Watch’s court-ordered discovery centered upon whether Clinton intentionally attempted to evade the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by using a non-government email system and whether the State Department adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request.


In the questioning, Sullivan admitted that he had used his personal Gmail account at times for State Department business but denied that he had sent classified information to Secretary Clinton’s unsecured personal system.

After Judicial Watch pointed out that on January 26, 2010, Sullivan sent a classified email with the subject line “call sheet,” Sullivan testified: “When I sent this email, my best judgment was that none of the material in it was classified, and I felt comfortable sending the email on an unclassified system. The material has subsequently been unclassified but at the time that I sent it, I did not believe that it was classified.”

Sullivan said in the deposition that he had not been concerned about Clinton’s use of a non-government email account, because it was not part of his job:

“Like Secretary Clinton has said herself, I wish she had used a State Department account. It wasn’t really part of my job to be thinking about Secretary Clinton’s emails so I don’t think I sort of fell down directly in my job, but do I wish I had thought of it during the time we were at State.​

“Of course. I mean, what human being at this point wouldn’t have thought of that?:

Sullivan’s deposition is part of United States District Judge Royce C. Lamberth’s order for senior officials — including Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes, Jacob Sullivan, and FBI official E.W. Priestap – to respond under oath to Judicial Watch questions.

A video of the Sullivan deposition exists but is under seal after the Justice Department and State Department, which opposed any discovery, objected to their public release. The court denied release of the video depositions for now and left the door open for reconsideration.

Judicial Watch is setting the standard for reputable journalism based upon research, facts, and FOIA.

Judicial Watch makes the lame-ass Repubs in Congress look like the truly incompetent stooges they really are.

Thank you Tom Fitton!

Be nice! It is well known that repubs have no spine and only really tiny tentacles to act as hands without opposable thumbs. Poor little parasites can barely get along without their corruption genes.

Sorry Jake, but had you brought it up as a serious concern at the time, all it would have gotten you is fired. She knew exactly what she was doing and why. Ie: to attempt to hide her corrupt doings. You bringing it up wouldn't have done anything about it.

Clinton loyalists are obviously still well entrenched in those dept's.
