She could see jail time over her many breaches of the law.

As talk swirls over whether Hillary Clinton could get into the 2020 presidential race or be tapped as a running mate, D.C. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth has put some other matters on her plate and simultaneously made her radioactive as a candidate.

If the judge gets the answers he likely suspects from these questions, Hillary Clinton could finally go where the president, during the 2016 general election debates, thought she might end up: Federal prison.

Judge Lamberth granted a request from the conservative group Judicial Watch to have Clinton deposed on questions related to her illegal server use and her betrayal of American personnel in the 2012 Benghazi attack.

The judge opined, “As extensive as the existing record is, it does not sufficiently explain Secretary Clinton’s state of mind when she decided it would be an acceptable practice to set up and use a private server to conduct State Department business.”

He found her previous answers “…either incomplete, unhelpful, or cursory at best. Simply put her responses left many more questions than answers.” The judge granted the request for an in-person deposition because solely written answers, “will only muddle any understanding of Secretary Clinton’s state of mind and fail to capture the full picture, thus delaying the final disposition of this case even further.”

Judge Lamberth also asked this: “…why did she think that using a private server to conduct State Department business was permissible under the law in the first place?”

As for the Benghazi attack and Clinton’s part in the response, ominously for Clinton, Lamberth opened the door to further investigation, saying that Hillary Clinton and her aide, Cheryl Mills, can face questions over “their knowledge of the existence of any emails, documents, or text messages related to the Benghazi attack.”

This could be the start of what Americans have sought since 2012 and certainly since 2016: The bringing to justice of Hillary Clinton.
