Hillary Clinton jumped into a public records lawsuit on Tuesday to try to avoid a deposition about a private email system she used while secretary of state that was at the center of a just-concluded criminal investigation.  

Judicial Watch, a conservative legal watchdog group, has filed a motion arguing that it needs to depose the presumptive Democratic nominee for president to answer six questions. The legal group has been pursuing a lawsuit that seeks records from Clinton's email.
