Now that Hillary Clinton’s aides have no choice but to talk to the FBI about the former Secretary of State’s personal emails server, one of her top aides is begging a judge to order a conservative group not to release video or audio of her deposition.
Politico reported that Cheryl Mills was Clinton’s chief of staff during her time as Secretary of State, and though the aide is not scheduled to talk to investigators in a deposition until Friday, she filed a motion Wednesday to prevent watchdog group Judicial Watch from obtaining video or audio of her deposition under the Freedom of Information Act.
“We are concerned that snippets or soundbites of the deposition may be publicized in a way that exploits Ms. Mills’ image and voice in an unfair and misleading manner,” attorneys Beth Wilkinson and Alexandra Walsh, filing a motion on behalf of Mills, wrote in their brief to U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan.
“Ms. Mills is not a party to this action,” they continued, according to Conservative Tribune. “She is a private citizen appearing voluntarily to assist in providing the limited discovery the Court has permitted … Judicial Watch should not be allowed to manipulate Ms. Mills’ testimony, and invade her personal privacy, to advance a partisan agenda that should have nothing to do with this litigation.”
A Judicial Watch spokeswoman said they are looking over the motion at the moment and will respond soon.
Clearly, Mills knows she’s going to say things that sound bad in context and is desperately trying to keep them out of campaign ads for Donald Trump. What’s sickening about this is the fact that the mainstream media isn’t reporting on how Nixonian this all is. This top aide for Clinton is trying to bar audio and video from her deposition to be released to the public before the deposition has been given.
If Trump’s aides were trying to do this, it would be all over the mainstream media. However, since Mills works for Clinton, the media isn’t reporting on it at all.
