Cherly Mills just had her deposition and the questioning didn’t go so easy. Lawyers from the Obama admin made sure of that. You would think she would be more cooperative since she made a deal with the Feds. Check this out.
Lawyers for senior Hillary Clinton aide Cheryl Mills, during a nearly five-hour deposition last week in Washington, repeatedly objected to questions about IT specialist Bryan Pagliano’s role in setting up the former secretary of state’s private server.
According to a transcript of the deposition with watchdog group Judicial Watch released on Tuesday, Mills attorney Beth Wilkinson – as well as Obama administration lawyers – objected to the line of questioning about Pagliano, who has emerged as a central figure in the FBI’s ongoing criminal probe of Clinton’s email practices.
“I’m going to instruct her not to answer. It’s a legal question,” Wilkinson responded, when asked by Judicial Watch whether Pagliano was an “agent of the Clintons” when the server was set up.
This was a pattern repeated throughout the deposition by the seven lawyers for Mills — including four attorneys representing the State and Justice departments, as well as her personal representatives.
Asked direct questions about when Mills spoke with Pagliano, Mills’ lawyer also objected.
In other exchanges relating to the server’s set-up, Mills said she did not know how to answer either.
“I don’t know how to answer your question because I don’t know the time period,” Mills said, when asked when she spoke with Pagliano. She did clarify that she met him in 2008 during Clinton’s first presidential campaign. Mills served as Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department and her counsel.
