There are a lot of questions and concerns about Hillary’s time at the State Department with scandals involving her home server, her emails and the Clinton Foundation.
The concerns are so numerous, Americans think the truth should be told to the public in order to make a wise vote in November. But the State Department thinks differently.
This may or may not have anything to do with Bill Clinton meeting with Loretta Lynch privately on her plane this week, but the State Department wants a delay.
On Thursday the Obama Administration moved to delay the release of over 14,000 pages of emails to the public. Citizens United sued the State Department over a Freedom of Information Act request (FOIA) and the courts decided all documents should be turned over no later than July 21, 2016, but the extension would push it back to October 2018.
The emails requested are between State Department officials and the Clinton Foundation. The request also covered emails sent to and from Teneco Consulting, a company with close ties to the Clintons.
On Thursday the Obama Administration asked the courts for a 27-month delay. They want to wait until October 2018.
The agency is blaming a miscalculation of time and an overwhelming number of FIOA requests.
The lawyers for the State Department had this to say, “State deeply regrets these errors, and is working diligently to correct them as quickly as possible.”
Do they know there is an election this fall? Obviously so, or they wouldn’t be trying to delay everything until after the election.
The Republican National Committee has a FOIA request currently with the State Department to look into the emails between some of Hillary’s staffers and aides. The State Department has estimated that request will take around 75 years to complete.
How ridiculous is this? A couple of staffers sent emails back and forth for a couple of years and it will take the State Department 75 years to go through the emails and fulfill the request? Everyone involved will most likely be dead at that point.
Every single day there is a new wrinkle or a new scandal involving the Clintons and now we can’t get the details for another 27 months. The courts have not officially approved the request yet, but it is expected to pass.
Meanwhile Hillary continues running for president and the public stays in the dark.
Should we have to wait another 27-months for the release of Hillary’s emails? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
