State Department Stonewalling Release of 15K Newly Discovered Hillary Clinton Emails
The FBI announced on Monday that it has discovered fifteen thousand previously undisclosed Clinton emails – a stash nearly half the size of the work-related emails Clinton actually turned over to the State Department.
If Clinton was trying to keep this material hidden until after the election, it appears she might have succeeded.
“The agency is currently assessing whether any of the new documents – which the FBI turned over to State following the close of its investigation – are of a personal nature or duplicates of previously-released emails. Following that assessment, it is reviewing on a rolling basis whether the pages are subject to federal records laws,” reports The Hill. “The first stage of the process is slated to be completed within a month. But it is the second part of the review process that has a more direct impact on when the documents will be made publicly available.”
“FBI found almost 15,000 new Clinton documents. When will State release them?” asked Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch, on Twitter. Judicial Watch has been seeking Clinton’s records through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
