"When Would You Like To See It?" "Sometime Before November"
Today, At State's Press Briefing, Reporters Asked If There Was A Set Deadline The Review Of Clinton's 22 "Top Secret" Emails, Joking That A Good Deadline Would Be "Sometime Before November." REPORTER: "John, Do you have any better idea now of when you might complete the review of determining whether or not the seven email chains were classified at the time. It seems that…" KIRBY: "I don't have a deadline for you." REPORTER: "Yeah, cause it just doesn't seem like a whole lot of email to go through, and maybe a phone call or two…" KIRBY: "When would you like to see it done?" OTHER REPORTER: "Sometime before November." REPORTER: "Look, it's just, I get that 55,000 is a heavy lift, I don't see how 22 is a heavy lift, so, we will be asking about it is all I'm saying, so…" KIRBY: "Well, listen, I fully expected that you would continue to ask about it, Justin…" REPORTER: "Because it's sort of critical to this whole controversy…" KIRBY: "I promise you I will pass your feedback on to those who are looking into it so they know that you have a sense of urgency too, look…" REPORTER: "And I speak, for the public, keep in mind, we are all interested…" KIRBY: "No I know you do, I fully respect your representation of the public. REPORTER: "Don't look at it as just me, cause that could tarnish your opinion of the whole process." KIRBY: "I'm sure that all of your colleagues share your curiosity and sense of urgency about this, I can tell you, I mean all kidding aside, we do as well, and the Secretary has been very clear that he wants this review to be conducted as expeditiously as possible, but not so fast that it's not right and it's not thorough. And when we have more to say about it , we certainly will." ( State Department Briefing, Washington DC, 2/1/16)
