Hillary Clinton said under penalty of perjury that she has no recollection of key details about her use of a private email server in 21 of 25 questions posed in a lawsuit filed by the conservative group Judicial Watch.
The sworn statements, filed in a U.S. District court late Thursday, came in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by the watchdog organization, which has filed numerous lawsuits seeking government documents from her tenure as secretary of State. In 18 of the 25, Clinton and lawyer David Kendall also entered objections to the legal wording of the questions.
