When he took office, President Obama promised the most transparent administration in history. All we can say is that the Obama administration is just as concerned today about openness as they were on day one:

Hillary Clinton will appreciate this defense from the Obama DOJ:

Late Thursday evening, the Justice Department filed a court motion opposing the Clinton deposition request from conservative legal watchdog Judicial Watch, claiming that the organization was trying to dramatically expand the scope of the lawsuit.

Judicial Watch is “seeking instead to transform these proceedings into a wide-ranging inquiry into matters beyond the scope of the court’s order and unrelated to the FOIA request at issue in this case,” government lawyers wrote in their filing, referring to the Freedom of Information Act.

The lawyers wrote that the request to interview Clinton “is wholly inappropriate” before depositions are finished in a separate case also concerning the email server.

As Attorney General Loretta Lynch has stated, she’s in no particular hurry when it comes to getting to the truth about Hillary’s homebrew server and deleted emails.
