It Begins: AP sues State Department, seeking access to Clinton records

Mar 11, 12:00 PM
By: STEVE PEOPLES

WASHINGTON (AP) The Associated Press filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the State Department to force the release of email correspondence and government documents from Hillary Rodham Clinton's tenure as secretary of state.

The legal action comes after repeated requests filed under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act have gone unfulfilled. They include one request AP made five years ago and others pending since the summer of 2013.

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, comes a day after Clinton broke her silence about her use of a private email account while secretary of state. The FOIA requests and lawsuit seek materials related to her public and private calendars, correspondence involving longtime aides likely to play key roles in her expected campaign for president, and Clinton-related emails about the Osama bin Laden raid and National Security Agency surveillance practices.

"After careful deliberation and exhausting our other options, The Associated Press is taking the necessary legal steps to gain access to these important documents, which will shed light on actions by the State Department and former Secretary Clinton, a presumptive 2016 presidential candidate, during some of the most significant issues of our time," said Karen Kaiser, AP's general counsel.

Said AP Executive Editor Kathleen Carroll, "The Freedom of Information Act exists to give citizens a clear view of what government officials are doing on their behalf. When that view is denied, the next resort is the courts."

State Department spokesman Alec Gerlach declined to comment. He had previously cited the department's heavy annual load of FOIA requests 19,000 last year in saying that the department "does its best to meet its FOIA responsibilities." He said the department takes requests "first in, first out," but noted that timing depends on "the complexity of the request."

Carroll said the AP was filing additional requests Wednesday using FOIA and other tools following the disclosure last week that Clinton had used a private email account run on a server on her property outside New York while working at the State Department.

Clinton on Tuesday said she sent and received about 60,000 emails from her personal email address in her four years as President Barack Obama's secretary of state. She said roughly half were work-related, which she turned over to the State Department, while deleting tens of thousands more that were personal in nature.

Somehow, this old grey mare doesn't seem to be as sure about herself .., or could it really be that there are some liberal forces working against her, and if so, what is the purpose?



Or maybe, the AP just wants to help Hillary clear the suspicion that surrounds her, since the damaging e-mails, if they ever existed or not, were already deleted by her anyway!  Wink

Occasionally, the liberal gods like to throw a few curve balls, but, I wonder if the Utopian Paradise of Liberal Dome might really have somebody else up their sleeve to promote for 2016?

Perhaps, .. it's this leftist whacko, below, who is even more radical and extremist?  Wink

Hang in there Greg, try not to go off the deep-end now, although, .. you did ask in a different thread topic, ''who really cares anyway''. - do you remember?  Wink

I guess that question you posed can be answered now, .. as it appears the 'AP cares' !   Grin  Grin

Clearly the elite liberal lying lamestream media, in the form of AP, wants to get these documents so they can be suppressed and held at a secret location, away from the prying eyes of decent God-fearing 'pubs so that that the socialist agenda of the America hating Obamas and their ilk can continue unabated, plunging this once great country into an abyss of suffering and shame the likes of which have not been seen since Stalin was in the Kremlin.
