Hillary Clinton’s Emails Will Be Released … Eventually

Published

STATE DEPARTMENT WANTS UNTIL JANUARY 2016 … 

|| By FITSNEWS || Hillary Clinton was required by law to keep a record of the business she conducted as U.S. Secretary of State.  You know, business like this.  And, um, this.

The only problem?  She didn’t do that …

Not only did Clinton maintain an “off the books” email server, she deleted its contents.  Of course 55,000 pages worth of Clinton emails have been recovered – and are in currently in possession of the U.S. State Department.

So … why aren’t we reading all about them?  Good question.

Earlier this week, the government said it would need until January 2016 – more than six months from now – to complete a review of the Clinton emails and prepare redacted versions for dissemination.

“Given the breadth and importance of the many foreign policy issues on which the Secretary of State and the Department work, the review of these materials will likely require consultation with a broad range of subject matter experts within the Department and other agencies, as well as potentially with foreign governments,” the agency said.

In other words, they’ve got a lot of stuff to cover up …

U.S. district court judge Rudolph Contreras is having none of it.  He’s ordered the State Department to provide him with an alternative schedule for the release of the emails.

Good for him …

Clinton – the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination – previously turned over a batch of emails to a U.S. House committee led by former prosecutor Trey Gowdy.  Those emails were confined to Gowdy’s investigation of the 2012 terrorist attack on a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, however – and did not appear to contain any “smoking guns.”
