    Associated Press Sues State Department Over Clinton Emails

    AP sues State Department, seeking access to Clinton records

    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.

    "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.

    "The press is a proxy for the people, and AP will continue its pursuit of vital information that's in the public interest through this action and future open records requests," she said.
    It would appear that Mrs. Clinton's "press conference" yesterday did little to quell the outrage over her obvious attempts to circumvent the law and keep these documents hidden from the public. I wonder if she even realizes that the more she fights this the worse it is going to get...

    The Emails have already been sanitized.

    I'm sure the State Department will have no problem handing over her Emails.

    They'll probably make sure its done in a very public way so they can show everyone just how transparent the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton are.

    Clinton has proven herself to be a ****. Oh well, it's what happens when you're seen in good light by Obama (who sees no issue with spying on everyone with the NSA).

    Honestly, give me a ****ing break.

    You're telling me that the NSA can peep through all of our **** and yet when we ask Hillary to show her emails because she's being a secretive douchebag suddenly it's all about her right to privacy and ****? GIVE ME A ****ING BREAK AAAHHHHH!!!

    I don't know about US law, but here in Canada our FOI legislation makes it an offense to destroy any document, in any form, that is the subject of an official FOI access request. As such, if Hillary Clinton or the State Department were to destroy or alter any emails subject to these requests, they should be prosecuted under the legislation. Now that Clinton has admitted to possession of the personal server, that server in effect becomes under the care and control of the State Department for purposes of the FOI process. An agent or employee of government cannot avoid the provisions of FOI by holding official government documents personally.

    I can envision this thing playing out to be a battle over possession of that server with the state insisting on taking possession of it and the Clintons fighting them tooth and nail... only for it to be revealed a year down the road that it "accidentally" fell into the bathtub while it was plugged in or something.

    Their dogs peed on her server and fried it.

    This is good. Now I hope they win, and ALL diplomats will be required to use a .gov address going forward. Primarily for the national security of it. Unfortunately, her supporters are unfazed by this revelation, demonstrating the blindness of the partisan. And such happens on both sides.
