The Obama State Department allowed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her then-Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin to remove electronic and physical records under a claim they were “personal” materials and “unclassified, non-record materials,” according to new documents released by Judicial Watch today. The files Clinton was permitted to remove included her calls and schedules, which were not be “released to the general public under FOIA.”
According to the records, Abedin was allowed to take five boxes of “physical files” out of the State Department, including records described as “Muslim Engagement Documents.”
Judicial Watch obtained the reports about the removed materials through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
