A conservative legal watchdog group on Tuesday released the transcript from a seven-hour deposition with Hillary Clinton’s former chief of staff as part of a lawsuit related to Clinton’s use of a private email server.
Release of the transcript on Tuesday afternoon follows Judicial Watch’s Friday deposition of Cheryl Mills in Washington. The organization is posing questions to current and former Clinton aides under an open records lawsuit.
Mills’s comments are the first public accounting of a close member of Clinton’s inner circle talking at length about the server that Clinton used throughout her tenure as secretary of State. Questions about the email arrangement have dogged her presidential campaign.
Last week, a State Department inspector general report criticized Clinton’s setup, claiming the arrangement violated department policy and that it would not have been approved had Clinton sought permission.
