Hillary emails will all be released in 2020
A government watchdog’s efforts to obtain documents related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s secret email server won’t be complete until October 2020.
The nonprofit organization Judicial Watch was told this week by an attorney for the Justice Department that roughly 100,000 unreleased emails sought through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit are still being processed.
Attorney Jennie Kneedler’s reasoning while standing before District Court Judge James E. Boasberg boiled down to three words: “Processing takes time.”
“From today’s hearing before Judge Boasberg, things remain status quo, processing an amount of 2,350 pages per month,” Judicial Watch attorney Lauren Burke told The Daily Caller. “It will be a couple of years before we conclude this.”
Ms. Burke said she suspects the process is being “slow-walked” on purpose by federal bureaucrats.
“Those who are in place at Justice or State or at other agencies dealing with these ongoing cases are the same people,” the attorney said. “Everything gets slow-walked … nothing has fundamentally changed.”
