DAILY CALLER — The watchdog group Judicial Watch will interview several Hillary Clinton aides and State Department officials over the next few weeks, it announced on Tuesday.
The first interview will be conducted on Wednesday with Lewis Lukens, the former deputy assistant secretary of state and executive director of the Executive Secretariat.
[dcquiz] Next week, on May 27, Judicial Watch’s lawyers will depose Clinton’s former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills. Bryan Pagliano, the information technology specialist who managed Clinton’s email system, will be deposed on June 6 and Huma Abedin, Clinton’s “body woman,” will be interviewed on June 28.
The watchdog will interview two other State Department officials — former executive secretary of state Stephen Mull and under secretary for management Patrick Kennedy — next month.
The interviews were granted earlier this month by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan, who is handling Judicial Watch’s lawsuit for records pertaining to Abedin’s employment at the State Department.
The State Department told Judicial Watch in 2014 that it had no records pertaining to its Freedom of Information Act request for such records. But the suit was reopened last year after the discovery that Clinton used a personal email account and private email server to conduct official State Department business.
When he issued the ruling granting the interviews to Judicial Watch, Sullivan noted that “based on information learned during discovery, the deposition of Mrs. Clinton may be necessary.”
Judicial Watch filed a motion on Monday in reference to a different lawsuit requesting to depose Clinton.
