    Associated Press Threatens Legal Action Over Request for Hillary Clinton Information

    It looks as though the most transparent administration in the history of the union is caught with their pants down around their ankles again...

    Seriously, does this administration give a damn about the principals this country was founded on?




    Associated Press Threatens Legal Action Over Request for Hillary Clinton Information
    By RAVI SOMAIYA
    MARCH 4, 2015

    The Associated Press said Wednesday that it was considering legal action over unfulfilled Freedom of Information Act requests for government documents covering Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.

    In its requests, the AP asked for her full schedules and calendars and for details on the State Department’s decision to grant a special position to a longtime Clinton aide, Huma Abedin, among other documents. The oldest request, the news organization said, was made in March 2010.

    “We believe it’s critically important that government officials and agencies be held accountable to the voters,” said AP’s general counsel, Karen Kaiser. “In this instance, we’ve exhausted our administrative remedies in pursuit of important documents and are considering legal action.”

    Did the founders make public all of their personal and official correspondences, daily schedules, and reasons for appointments and hiring practices? I don't think so. Of course, back then, we weren't a nation of busybodies.

    I am still waiting for them to respond to my FOIA requests for the nuclear launch codes. I probably should follow up on that

    The FOIA is silly as is preserving all these records. Damn, Nixon.
    If I blow the conch and they don't come back; then we've had it. We shan't keep the fire going. We'll be like animals. We'll never be rescued.

    Don't you need probable cause to invade someone's privacy like this? Other than the right's Benghazi Tourette's, which is definitely not sufficient to establish probable cause, is there any basis for this?

    They didn't have email, but many did save their correspondence. Washington thought of it as preserving his legacy.

    There's really no question that Clinton should have used official email. I don't know if it actually violated the law, but AFAIK it was a violation of protocol.

    Of course, many administrations pulls stunts like this, including the Bush administration losing almost 5 million emails in 2007; they were (surprise!) using a private email server, very likely to avoid scrutiny. Partisan die-hards might want to keep that in mind, as I don't recall any Republicans demanding Bush leave office because of that issue.

    When the liberal bus full of Bs, the AP turns against the MSM in its partisan protection of the Obamas and Clintons,.......it is not a good day.

    No, she is a public official creating public documents while paid by public money. The public has a right to know what their elected officials are doing.
