Clinton's Secret Server Was Set Up To Intentionally "Thwart FOIA Requests," And Only Released Years Later Under A Federal Court Order

Vice News Was Granted A Court Order For The State Department To Release Clinton's 55,000 Pages Of Emails From Her Secret Server. "A federal court judge Tuesday morning ordered the State Department to devise a schedule for releasing Hillary Clinton's emails on a rolling basis, rejecting a proposal the department made hours earlier to release all 55,000 pages on January 15, 2016." (Jason Leopold, "Judge Orders State Department To Release Clinton Emails On Rolling Basis," Vice News, 5/19/15)

"It Has Been Widely Reported That Clinton's Decision To Use Private Email Was A Means To Thwart FOIA Requests." "Clinton's use of personal email to conduct official business during her first four years as Secretary of State was first revealed by the New York Times last March, and has since snowballed into a potentially epic scandal. It has been widely reported that Clinton's decision to use private email was a means to thwart FOIA requests." (Jason Leopold, "State Department Says Clinton Emails Won't Be Released Until January 2016," Vice News, 5/18/16)

  • Because Clinton's Secret Server Was "Not Accessible To The FOIA Analysts" During Her Time As Secretary of State, The State Department Had Failed To Produce Any Records Responsive To FOIA Requests. "During Clinton's time as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013, the State Department received at least a half-dozen FOIA requests for her emails covering various issues. But Clinton operated a private server out of her home, and her emails were not accessible to the FOIA analysts tasked with processing the requests. The State Department has failed to produce any records responsive to the requests, some of which dated back five years." (Jason Leopold, "Judge Orders State Department To Release Clinton Emails On Rolling Basis,"Vice News, 5/19/15)

The State Department Had To Request Clinton's Emails Years After She Left Office So They Could Be Released. "But State Department officials provided new information Tuesday that undercuts Clinton's characterization. They said the request was not about general recordkeeping but was prompted entirely by the discovery that Clinton had exclusively used a private e-mail system." (Carol Leonnig and Rosalind Helderman, "State Department's Account Of E-Mail Request Differs From Clinton's," The Washington Post , 9/22/15)

Full Schedules From Clinton's State Department Tenure Were Only Released Under Court Order, And Showed Donors And Loyalists Were Scrubbed From Her Public Schedule

The Associated Press Sued The State Department After Two Years Of Delay In Their Request For Clinton's Calendar And Schedules During Her Time At The State Department After Noticing Discrepancies, Finally Getting A Court Order Granting The Release Of Her Schedules. "The AP first sought Clinton's calendar and schedules from the State Department in August 2013, but the agency would not acknowledge even that it had the material. After nearly two years of delay, the AP sued the State Department in March 2015. The department agreed in a court filing last August to turn over Clinton's calendar, and provided the documents in November. After noticing discrepancies between Clinton's calendar and some schedules, the AP pressed in court for all of Clinton's planning material. The U.S. has released about one-third of those planners to the AP, so far." (Stephen Braun, "Clinton's State Dept. Calendar Missing Scores Of Entries," The Associated Press , 6/24/16)

  • The Associated Press Analysis Revealed That As Secretary Of State Clinton Had At Least 75 Meetings With "Long Time Political Donors And Loyalists, Clinton Foundation Contributors And Corporate And Other Outside Interests That Were Not Recorded Or Listed With Identifying Details Scrubbed." "The AP review of Clinton's calendar - her after-the-fact, official chronology of the events of her four-year term - identified at least 75 meetings with longtime political donors and loyalists, Clinton Foundation contributors and corporate and other outside interests that were either not recorded or listed with identifying details scrubbed." (Stephen Braun, "Clinton's State Dept. Calendar Missing Scores Of Entries," The Associated Press , 6/24/16)
