Delays plague Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. files
WASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department has failed to turn over government documents covering Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state that The Associated Press and others requested under U.S. Freedom of Information Act ahead of her presumptive presidential campaign.
One AP request has sat since 2010, and the others date to mid-2013.
The AP cited the public interest in gaining early access to the material. But the department denied all requests for speedy delivery under a provision in the law reserved for journalists seeking records on newsworthy topics.
On Wednesday, the conservative political advocacy group Citizens United sued the department, alleging it failed under the group’s FOIA request to provide flight records related to Clinton’s overseas trips.
