POLIZETTE — Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff during her tenure as secretary of state and now, coincidentally, her private attorney, seems to suffer from PCA — politically convenient amnesia.
Mills gave testimony in a heated deposition from Judicial Watch last Friday, where she was repeatedly directed not to answer questions by her lawyer, Beth Wilkinson, according to the transcript released Tuesday. Wilkinson objected to a large number of questions on the premise that the probing encroached on Clinton’s attorney-client privilege because Mills is her attorney.
“Objection. Beyond the scope. And I’m going to instruct her not to answer,” Wilkinson said at one point. “Objection. I’m going to object because it’s beyond the scope,” she chimed in at another. And: “I am going to — excuse me. I’m going to object.”
In her testimony, Mills said she had no knowledge of Clinton’s use of a private server and only discovered it after her tenure as secretary of state. Mills went on to admit that she had conversations with Pagliano, the aide who set up the server, only after Clinton left the State Department in 2013.
