A conservative watchdog is pressing for Hillary Clinton to be deposed to understand her "evolving explanation" for using a personal email server while she was secretary of state, The Hill reports. 

Judicial Watch, in a new legal filing with the U.S. District Court in D.C., argues Clinton told CBS News' "60 Minutes" in an interview aired July 24 that "it was recommended that it would be convenient" for her to use private email for her State Department work.

"Other people did have – other secretaries of state, other high-ranking members of administrations, plural – and it was recommended that it would be convenient, and I thought it would be," she tells CBS News' Scott Pelley in the interview. "It's turned out to be anything but."

Clinton’s statement constitutes "new information," Judicial Watch argues.

In the filing, Judicial Watch lawyer Michael Bekesha argues that "based on her testimony to the Benghazi Select Committee, the statement on her campaign website, and her purported answers to the FBI’s questions, it is nowhere even suggested that Secretary Clinton’s decision to use the clintonemail.com system for official government business was based on someone else’s recommendation."

"Because of the evolving explanation, Secretary Clinton’s deposition is necessary to effectively and efficiently understand how the decision was made and the motivation behind it," he writes, The Hill reports.

The group's ongoing lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia claims the State Department kept the public "in the dark" about Clinton's "off-grid" record-keeping, the Daily Caller reports.
