Judge balks at five-year timeline for release of Clinton emails
“A federal judge signaled Monday that he’s not inclined to agree to a timetable for the release of FBI-recovered Hillary Clinton emails that could have the records dribbling out over the next five years.
U.S. District Court Judge James Boasberg made the comment during a hearing on a Freedom of Information Act case brought by the conservative group Judicial Watch where the State Department is currently processing 500 pages per month.”
Below are tweets from Judicial Watch President, Tom Fitton, and Director of Investigations and Research, Chris Farrell, on the request by the State Department.
State admits today it has 31,000 pages of Clinton material from FBI.Wanted as long as 5 years to turn it all over. Court skeptical.

8 Days for 650K records when it’s politically expedient & self-serving — 5 YEARS for 31K pages when the Govt goes into full cover-up mode. https://t.co/kvkQ9gJe6M

This information comes after Judicial Watch had a court hearing at the US District Court for the District of Columbia regarding Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit seeking emails sent or received by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in her official capacity during her tenure as Secretary of State. The timeframe for this request is February 2, 2009 to January 31, 2013.
