Transparency groups want Clinton’s emails preserved electronically for public
MARCH 17, 2015
A coalition of watchdog groups sent a letter to the Secretary of State and the National Archivist on Tuesday, asking for them to make Hillary Clinton’s emails sent from her private sever about official business public to the American people. Last December, Hillary Clinton turned in 30,000 emails yet deleted more than 30,000 emails that she deemed to be private and unclassified. In relation to the scandal, Judicial Watch asked a federal judge to schedule a status conference regarding Clinton’s Benghazi emails it requested through FOIA in July 2014. Read more about that here.
Below is a quote from the coalition letter, as quoted in the article:
“Because it is of the utmost importance that all of former Secretary Clinton’s emails are properly preserved and transferred back to the State Department for accountability and historical record purposes, we are asking that you verify that Secretary Clinton’s emails containing federal records are transferred to the Department of State in their original electronic form, so that all such emails may be accessible pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act,” the coalition said in a letter to the officials.
