PLAINTIFFS INTERROGATORIES TO FORMER U.S. SECRETARY


OF STATE HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON
Plaintiff Judicial Watch, Inc., pursuant to the Courts August 19, 2016 order and Rule 33
of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, submits the following interrogatories to be answered
under oath by former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
INSTRUCTIONS AND DEFINITIONS
1.

Your answers to these interrogatories should include information within your

actual or constructive possession, custody, or control, including information which may be held
by your attorneys, representatives, all persons acting under, by, or through you, or subject to your
control or supervision, and all persons acting on your behalf.
2.

If you cannot answer an interrogatory fully and completely, answer as much as

you can and provide all facts upon which you rely in support of your contention that you cannot
answer fully and completely.
3.

If you object to any portion of an interrogatory, but not the entire interrogatory,

identify the specific portion of the interrogatory to which objection is made and answer the
portion of the interrogatory to which no objection is made.

4.

If you object to any interrogatory on the grounds that the interrogatory is overly

broad or unduly burdensome, answer the interrogatory by providing all information that is not
alleged to be overly broad or unduly burdensome and identify the nature, quality, quantity, or
volume of the withheld information and the effort that would be required to provide the withheld
information.
5.

If you object to any interrogatory on the grounds that the interrogatory calls for

information that is subject to a claim of privilege, state the privilege that is claimed to apply and
identify all information sufficient to permit Plaintiff to contest the claim of privilege and to
permit the Court to reach a determination concerning the validity of the claim of privilege,
together with the factual and legal basis for the claim of privilege.
6.

And and or are to be construed both conjunctively and disjunctively, as

necessary, to make the interrogatory inclusive rather than exclusive. Similarly, any use of the
singular shall also mean the plural and vice versa, to give the interrogatory its broadest possible
meaning.
7.

The definitions provided below are hereby incorporated into each interrogatory in

which the term appears:


a.

Clintonemail.com email system refers to the email system, server(s),

provider(s) and infrastructure that hosted any email account with the domain name
clintonemail.com.
b.

Clintonemail.com account refers to any email address with the domain

name clintonemail.com.
c.

Communication refers to any transmission, conveyance, or exchange of

information, whether facts, ideas, inquiries, or otherwise, and regardless of form, method, or

medium. It shall include, without limitation, any conference, contact, conversation,


correspondence, discussion, email, internet posting, instant message, letter, meeting, telegram,
telefax, text message, tweet, or voice mail message.
d.

Department or State Department refers to the U.S. Department of

State, the defendant in this action.


e.

FOIA refers to the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552.


INTERROGATORIES

1.

Describe the creation of the clintonemail.com system, including who decided to

create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up,
and when it became operational.
2.

Describe the creation of your clintonemail.com email account, including who

decided to create it, when it was created, why it was created, and, if you did not set up the
account yourself, who set it up for you.
3.

When did you decide to use a clintonemail.com email account to conduct official

State Department business and whom did you consult in making this decision?
4.

Identify all communications in which you participated concerning or relating to

your decision to use a clintonemail.com email account to conduct official State Department
business and, for each communication, identify the time, date, place, manner (e.g., in person, in
writing, by telephone, or by electronic or other means), persons present or participating, and
content of the communication.
5.

In a 60 Minutes interview aired on July 24, 2016, you stated that it was

recommended you use a personal email account to conduct official State Department business.
What recommendations were you given about using or not using a personal email account to

conduct official State Department business, who made any such recommendations, and when
were any such recommendations made?
6.

Were you ever advised, cautioned, or warned, was it ever suggested, or did you

ever participate in any communication, conversation, or meeting in which it was discussed that
your use of a clintonemail.com email account to conduct official State Department business
conflicted with or violated federal recordkeeping laws. For each instance in which you were so
advised, cautioned or warned, in which such a suggestion was made, or in which such a
discussion took place, identify the time, date, place, manner (e.g., in person, in writing, by
telephone, or by electronic or other means), persons present or participating, and content of the
advice, caution, warning, suggestion, or discussion.
7.

Your campaign website states, When Clinton got to the Department, she opted to

use her personal email account as a matter of convenience. What factors other than
convenience did you consider in deciding to use a personal email account to conduct official
State Department business? Include in your answer whether you considered federal records
management and preservation requirements and how email you used to conduct official State
Department business would be searched in response to FOIA requests.
8.

After President Obama nominated you to be Secretary of State and during your

tenure as secretary, did you expect the State Department to receive FOIA requests for or
concerning your email?
9.

During your tenure as Secretary of State, did you understand that email you sent

or received in the course of conducting official State Department business was subject to FOIA?
10.

During your tenure as Secretary of State, how did you manage and preserve

emails in your clintonemail.com email account sent or received in the course of conducting

official State Department business, and what, if anything, did you do to make those emails
available to the Department for conducting searches in response to FOIA requests?
11.

During your tenure as Secretary of State, what, if any, effort did you make to

inform the State Departments records management personnel (e.g., Clarence Finney or the
Executive Secretariats Office of Correspondence and Records) about your use of a
clintonemail.com email account to conduct official State Department business?
12.

During your tenure as Secretary of State, did State Department personnel ever

request access to your clintonemail.com email account to search for email responsive to a FOIA
request? If so, identify the date access to your account was requested, the person or persons
requesting access, and whether access was granted or denied.
13.

At the time you decided to use your clintonemail.com email account to conduct

official State Department business, or at any time thereafter during your tenure as Secretary of
State, did you consider how emails you sent to or received from persons who did not have State
Department email accounts (i.e., state.gov accounts) would be maintained and preserved by the
Department or searched by the Department in response to FOIA requests? If so, what was your
understanding about how such emails would be maintained, preserved, or searched by the
Department in response to FOIA requests?
14.

On March 6, 2009, Assistant Secretary of State for Diplomatic Security Eric J.

Boswell wrote in an Information Memo to your Chief of Staff, Cheryl Mills, that he cannot
stress too strongly, however, that any unclassified BlackBerry is highly vulnerable in any setting
to remotely and covertly monitoring conversations, retrieving email, and exploiting calendars.
A March 11, 2009 email states that, in a management meeting with the assistant secretaries, you
approached Assistant Secretary Boswell and mentioned that you had read the IM and that you

get it. Did you review the March 6, 2009 Information Memo, and, if so, why did you continue
using an unclassified BlackBerry to access your clintonemail.com email account to conduct
official State Department business? Copies of the March 6, 2009 Information Memo and March
11, 2009 email are attached as Exhibit A for your review.
15.

In a November 13, 2010 email exchange with Huma Abedin about problems with

your clintonemail.com email account, you wrote to Ms. Abedin, in response to her suggestion
that you use a State Department email account or release your email address to the Department,
Lets get a separate address or device. Why did you continue using your clintonemail.com
email account to conduct official State Department business after agreeing on November 13,
2010 to get a separate address or device? Include in your answer whether by address you
meant an official State Department email account (i.e., a state.gov account) and by device
you meant a State Department-issued BlackBerry. A copy of the November 13, 2010 email
exchange with Ms. Abedin is attached as Exhibit B for your review.
16.

Email exchanges among your top aides and assistants in August 30, 2011 discuss

providing you with a State Department-issued BlackBerry or State Department email address. In
the course of these discussions, State Department Executive Secretary Stephen Mull wrote,
[W]e are working to provide the Secretary per her request a Department issued BlackBerry to
replace her personal unit which is malfunctioning (possibly because of her personal email server
is down). We will prepare two versions for her to use one with an operating State Department
email account (which would mask her identity, but which would also be subject to FOIA
requests). Similarly, John Bentel, the Director of Information and Records Management in the
Executive Secretariat, wrote, You should be aware that any email would go through the
Departments infrastructure and [be] subject to FOIA searches. Did you request a State-

Department issued Blackberry or a State Department email account in or around August 2011,
and, if so, why did you continue using your personal device and clintonemail.com email account
to conduct official State Department business instead of replacing your device and account with
a State Department-issued BlackBerry or a State Department email account? Include in your
answer whether the fact that a State Department-issued BlackBerry or a State Department email
address would be subject to FOIA affected your decision. Copies of the email exchanges are
attached as Exhibit C for your review.
17.

In February 2011, Assistant Secretary Boswell sent you an Information Memo

noting a dramatic increase since January 2011 in attempts . . . to compromise the private home
email accounts of senior Department officials. Assistant Secretary Boswell urge[d]
Department users to minimize the use of personal web-email for business. Did you review
Assistant Secretary Boswells Information Memo in or after February 2011, and, if so, why did
you continue using your clintonemail.com email account to conduct official State Department
business? Include in your answer any steps you took to minimize use of your clintonemail.com
email account after reviewing the memo. A copy of Assistant Secretary Boswells February
2011 Information Memo is attached as Exhibit D for your review.
18.

On June 28, 2011, you sent a message to all State Department personnel about

securing personal email accounts. In the message, you noted recent targeting of personal email
accounts by online adversaries and directed all personnel to [a]void conducting official
Department business from your personal email accounts. Why did you continue using your
clintonemail.com email account to conduct official State Department business after June 28,
2011, when you were advising all State Department Personnel to avoid doing so? A copy of the
June 28, 2011 message is attached as Exhibit E for your review.

19.

Were you ever advised, cautioned, or warned about hacking or attempted hacking

of your clintonemail.com email account or the server that hosted your clintonemail.com account
and, if so, what did you do in response to the advice, caution, or warning?
20.

When you were preparing to leave office, did you consider allowing the State

Department access to your clintonemail.com email account to manage and preserve the official
emails in your account and to search those emails in response to FOIA requests? If you
considered allowing access to your email account, why did you decide against it? If you did not
consider allowing access to your email account, why not?
21.

After you left office, did you believe you could alter, destroy, disclose, or use

email you sent or received concerning official State Department business as you saw fit? If not,
why not?
22.

In late 2014, the State Department asked that you make available to the

Department copies of any federal records of which you were aware, such as an email sent or
received on a personal email account while serving as Secretary of State. After you left office
but before your attorneys reviewed the email in your clintonemail.com email account in response
to the State Departments request, did you alter, destroy, disclose, or use any of the email in the
account or authorize or instruct that any email in the account be altered, destroyed, disclosed, or
used? If so, describe any email that was altered, destroyed, disclosed, or used, when the
alteration, destruction, disclosure, or use took place, and the circumstances under which the
email was altered, destroyed, disclosed, or used? A copy of a November 12, 2014 letter from
Under Secretary of State for Management Patrick F. Kennedy regarding the State Departments
request is attached as Exhibit F for your review.

23.

After your lawyers completed their review of the emails in your clintonemail.com

email account in late 2014, were the electronic versions of your emails preserved, deleted, or
destroyed? If they were deleted or destroyed, what tool or software was used to delete or destroy
them, who deleted or destroyed them, and was the deletion or destruction done at your direction?
24.

During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of

Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails
were in the States system and if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been
able to do so. Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in
support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made
aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of
these facts.
25.

Identify all communications between you and Brian Pagliano concerning or

relating to the management, preservation, deletion, or destruction of any emails in your


clintonemail.com email account, including any instruction or direction to Mr. Pagliano about the
management, preservation, deletion, or destruction of emails in your account when transferring
the clintonemail.com email system to any alternate or replacement server. For each
communication, identify the time, date, place, manner (e.g., in person, in writing, by telephone,
or by electronic or other means), persons present or participating, and content of the
communication.

UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE


FOR MANAGEMENT
WASHINGTON

t!DV 1 2 ((M.

The Department of State has a longstanding and continuing commitment to


preserving the history of U.S. diplomacy, estabHshed in authorities under the
Federal Records Act of 1950. 1 am writing to you, the representative of Secretary
of State Hillary Clinton, as well as to representatives of other fonner Secretaries

(principals), to request your assistance in further meeting this requirement.


The Federal Records Act of 1950, as amended, 44 U .S.C. chapters 29, 31
and 33, seeks to ensure the preservation of an authoritative record of official
correspondence, com mun i cations, and documentation. Last year, in Bulletin 201303, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) clarified records
management responsibilities regarding the use of personal email accounts for
official government business. NARA recommended that agencies refer to its
guidance when advising incoming and departing agency employees about their
records management responsibilities. This bulletin was followed by additional
NARA guidance on managing email issued on September 15, 2014. See enclosed.
We recognize that some period of time has passed since your principal
served as Secretary of State and that the NARA guidance post-dates that service.
Nevertheless, we bring the NARA guidance to your attention in order to ensure
that the Department's records are as complete as possible. Accordingly, we ask
that should your principal or his or her authorized representative be aware or
become aware in the future of a federal record, such as an email sent or received on
a personal email account while serving as Secretary of State, that a copy of this
record be made avairable to the Department. In this regard, please note that
diverse Department records are subject to various disposition schedules, with most

Secretary of State records retained permanently. We ask that a record be provided


to the Department if there is reason to believe that it may not otherwise be
preserved in the Department's recordkeeping system.
The Department is wiJling to provide assistance to you in this effort. In the
meantime, should you have any questions regarding this request, please do not
hesitate to contact William Fischer, NGIS/IPS/RA, Agency Records Officer, at
(202) 261-83 69.

We greatly appreciate your consideration of and assistance with this matter.


Sincerely,

a::.::nnedy
