Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may be required to give a deposition on her use of a private email server for official business while in office, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan granted discovery in the case on Wednesday to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch as the result of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, according to The Hill.

Judicial Watch's original lawsuit sought information about the emails of Clinton's top aide Huma Abedin, but has since moved on to include Clinton's use of the private server, which critics say may have compromised national security.

"Based on information learned during discovery, the deposition of Mrs. Clinton may be necessary," the judge said Wednesday, according to Judicial Watch. "If Plaintiff believes Mrs. Clinton's testimony is required, it will request permission from the Court at the appropriate time."

Sullivan also authorized possible testimony from Abedin and other Clinton aides, including, Cheryl Mills, Patrick Kennedy, Stephen Mull, Lewis Lukens, and Bryan Pagliano – who set up the "clintonemail.com" system.

If Clinton is required to make a deposition, it would likely come right before she is expected to be named the Democratic presidential nominee in late July.
