Hillary Aide Cheryl Mills Walks Out of Questioning to Consult With Lawyer When FBI Asks Forbidden Question About Email

The backstory here is that the Department of Justice apparently agreed to not ask her about procedures for producing emails publicly -- why? Why agree to that? Either she's being questioned about what she knows about Hillary's emails or it's all yet another scam perpetrated on the public. Another slick cover-up.

The claim is that this is somehow violative of attorney-client privilege -- I guess she's claiming she was Hillary's attorney. (Even though she was on the government payroll.)

Well, Obama's and Lynch's DoJ agreed to that. But an FBI agent asked about it anyway, and Cheryl Mills walked out of the interview to confer with her lawyer.

From the Washington Post (behind a paywall):

The questions that were considered off limits had to do with the procedure used to produce emails to the State Department so they could possibly be released publicly, the people said. Mills, an attorney herself, was not supposed to be asked questions about that -- and ultimately never was in the recent interview-- because it was considered confidential as an example of attorney-client privilege, the people said.

Mills returned after a short time and completed the interview, according to the Post. Her attorney, Beth Wilkinson, told the paper that "Ms. Mills has cooperated with the government."

Of course she has.
