It’s almost unreal to be true, but the State Department has reportedly released a statement they would not be releasing Hillary Clinton’s e-mails between her and Trans-Pacific Partnership until November. International Business Times had asked for copies of Clinton’s emails related to the trade deal in July 2015 when the State Department denied the request until late November 2016 — weeks after the presidential election.
The State Department originally stated it estimated the request would be finished by April 2016. Last week the agency revealed it had completed the search process for the correspondence, but also said it would be delaying the completion of the request until November. Until November. When Hillary could already possibly be in office as President.
The delay was issued in the same week the Obama administration filed a court motion to try to kill a lawsuit targeting the federal government to comply with open records requests for Clinton-era State Department documents quicker.
