Judicial Watch: State Dept. Still Sitting on a Motherlode of Clinton Emails
OCTOBER 23, 2017
The State Department admitted in federal court last week that it has 72,000 pages of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton’s records and has yet to process 40,000 of the pages, Judicial Watch revealed Monday.
State has reportedly processed about 32,000 pages of emails so far, with another 40,000 pages still remaining to be processed. Only a small number of the processed emails have been released to the public, the watchdog noted.
This came out during a federal court hearing addressing a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit seeking Clinton emails that were sent or received during her tenure from February 2009 to January 31, 2013.
Although Clinton attempted to delete 33,000 purportedly private emails from her homebrew server, FBI investigators were able to recover a number of the missing emails — many of which were government documents.
