Hillary Clinton just got some very bad news as the latest attempt to hold her accountable speeds up an unsatisfying conclusion for Hillary.

Yesterday a judge ruled Hillary Clinton must finally sit for a deposition under oath about why she dodged FOIA with a private email server.

According to Judge Napolitano at Fox News, Bill Barr is the one who would have to file an appeal to try to get her out from testifying and worse, she can’t take the fifth because the statute of limitations has run out.

But if she lies under oath she can be charged. Tough choices ahead for Hillary and none of them are good.

From Fox News:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could potentially fight a ruling that she must sit for a sworn deposition before a federal judge, but she would have to ask Attorney General William Barr for help, Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano explained Tuesday.

In an interview on “Fox & Friends,” Napolitano said that the former presidential candidate would have to ask Barr to file an appeal on her behalf because the Department of Justice (DOJ) lawyers would be representing her in the matter…

… “[The] Freedom of Information Act is a federal statute that allows anyone … who seeks [them], copies of government documents,” Napolitano remarked. “Judicial Watch has been trying to get copies of these documents. When they looked at the documents, some of which have been prepared by Mrs. Clinton, you heard what the judge said: the answers were deceptive, misleading, and generated more questions than they answered. Therefore, he ordered her to be deposed.”

“She has never been deposed under oath on this,” he continued. “She was interrogated, but not under oath, in a secret interrogation by the FBI three days before they exonerated her.”

Additionally, he noted, this deposition will also be videotaped.

“She can’t plead the fifth, right?” asked host Ainsley Earhardt.

“She can’t plead the fifth because the statute of limitations to prosecute her for failure to safeguard state secrets has come and gone. She can’t be prosecuted for that,” he replied. “She could be prosecuted if she lies under oath in this deposition. She is represented in the deposition by lawyers form the Justice Department.”
