State Pressing Clinton Camp On Email Gap

The State Department, Now Aware Of A Gap In The Emails Turned Over By Clinton, Has Asked That Clinton's Lawyer Confirm She Actually Turned Over All Federal Records

Today, The Justice Department Filed A Pleading In One Of The FOIA Lawsuits Relating To Clinton's Emails, Which Contained A Letter From The State Department To Clinton's Lawyer. "Despite the lack of relevance of this 'revelation' to this matter, State notes that, unrelated to this litigation, it has sent the letter attached hereto as Exhibit A to former Secretary Clinton's counsel." (U.S. Department Of Justice, "Defendant's Response To Plaintiff's Notice Of Pertinent Information," Judicial Watch, Inc. V. U.S. Department Of State, Civil Action No. 13-CV-1363)

The State Department Letter, Dated October 2, 2015, Is From The Under Secretary Of State For Management Addressed To David Kendall. (U.S. Department Of Justice, "Defendant's Response To Plaintiff's Notice Of Pertinent Information," Judicial Watch, Inc. V. U.S. Department Of State, Civil Action No. 13-CV-1363)

The State Department Noted That After A Recent Review Of Documents From Other Former Officials, It Has "Become Aware Of Emails That Were Sent To Or Received From" Clinton Between January And March 2009. "In the course of reviewing recently received documents from other former officials, the Department has become aware of emails that were sent to or received from former Secretary Clinton between January and March 2009." (U.S. Department Of Justice, "Defendant's Response To Plaintiff's Notice Of Pertinent Information," Judicial Watch, Inc. V. U.S. Department Of State, Civil Action No. 13-CV-1363)

The State Department Asked That Clinton's Lawyer Confirm That Clinton Has Actually Turned Over All Federal Records In Her Possession. "As a result, I ask that you confirm that, with regard to her tenure as Secretary of State, former Secretary Clinton has provided the Department with all federal records in her possession, regardless of their format or the domain on which they were stored or created, that may not otherwise be preserved in the Department's recordkeeping system." (U.S. Department Of Justice, "Defendant's Response To Plaintiff's Notice Of Pertinent Information," Judicial Watch, Inc. V. U.S. Department Of State, Civil Action No. 13-CV-1363)

The State Department Even Directed Clinton's Lawyer To Contact Any "Internet Service And Email Providers" That Might Have Her Emails

The State Department Requested That "To The Extent Her Emails Might Be Found On Any Internet Service And Email Providers, We Encourage You To Contact Them." "To the extent her emails might be found on any internet service and email providers, we encourage you to contact them." (U.S. Department Of Justice, "Defendant's Response To Plaintiff's Notice Of Pertinent Information," Judicial Watch, Inc. V. U.S. Department Of State, Civil Action No. 13-CV-1363)

This Email Gap Was Only Discovered By Officials Outside Of The State Department And The Emails "Fly In The Face" Of Clinton's Previous Claims Of Full Disclosure

The Obama Administration Discovered A Chain Of Emails That Clinton Failed To Turn Over When She Provided What She Claimed Was A Full Record Of Work-Related Correspondence. "The Obama administration has discovered a chain of emails that Hillary Rodham Clinton failed to turn over when she provided what she said was the full record of work-related correspondence as secretary of state, officials told The Associated Press Friday, adding to the growing questions related to the Democratic presidential front-runner's unusual usage of a private email account and server while in government." (Bradley Klapper, "Officials: More Work Emails From Clinton's Private Account," The Associated Press , 9/25/15)

The Discovery Of New Emails "Fl[ies] In The Face Of Clinton's Previous Claim That She Had Turned Over All Of Her Work-Related Emails." "The messages were largely about personnel issues, the AP reported, and don't appear to discuss highly classified material. Yet they fly in the face of Clinton's previous claim that she had turned over all of her work-related emails." (Julian Hattem, "Clinton May Not Have Turned Over All Her Emails," The Hill, 9/25/15)
