Federal judge might order subpoena of Hillary’s yoga-related emails (and other lotus position-inducing news for Team Clinton)

Hey, is that Joe Biden I see warming up in the DNC bullpen?
A federal judge on Tuesday ruled that State Department officials and top aides to Hillary Clinton should be questioned under oath about whether they intentionally thwarted federal open records laws by using or allowing the use of a private email server throughout Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.
The decision by U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan of Washington came in a lawsuit over public records brought by Judicial Watch, a conservative legal watchdog group, regarding its May 2013 request for information about the employment arrangement of Huma Abedin, a longtime Clinton aide.
Sullivan also suggested from the bench that he might at some point order the department to subpoena Clinton and Abedin to return all emails related to Clinton’s private account, not just records their camps previously deemed work-related and returned.
“There has been a constant drip, drip, drip of declarations. When does it stop?” Sullivan said, “This case is about the public’s right to know.”
Finally somebody’s starting to call the bluff: Emails the State Department’s been releasing are only the ones Team Clinton chose to turn over in the first place. Either the judge might suspect the emails Hillary’s people decided to withhold aren’t entirely “personal” or he’s going way out of his way to get some yoga tips.
If it comes down to testimony, how many members of Hillary’s inner circle will follow her former email tech and plead the Fifth? All we know for sure is that when Hillary’s asked if her testimony will be nothing but the truth, she’ll respond, “I’ll try.”
