    Democratic Nominee for President of the United States former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton rallies with longtime friend and colleague Vice President Joe Biden in Scranton, Pennsylvania on Monday, August 15, 2016.

    A federal judge in Washington, D.C. ruled Friday that Hillary Clinton must answer written questions from a group that filed a lawsuit over her private email server, NBC News Reported.

    Lawyers for Judicial Watch, a conservative government watchdog organization, asked to interview her under oath as part of their Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department.

    Judge Emmet Sullivan said Friday that the group "has failed to demonstrate that it cannot obtain the discovery it seeks through other, less burdensome or intrusive means such as interrogatories."

    He gave the group until October 14 to give her the questions, and she has 30 days to answer them.
