U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00687)). Judicial Watch’s FOIA lawsuit seeks:
Any and all emails sent or received by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in her official capacity as Secretary of State during her tenure as Secretary of State.
The timeframe for this request is February 2, 2009 to January 31, 2013.
The State Department recently agreed to search and produce to Judicial Watch all responsive, non-exempt emails sent or received by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that were uncovered by the FBI in its investigation of Clinton and her use of the clintonemail.com system. The 14,900 new Clinton emails were uncovered as a result of Judicial Watch’s litigation seeking all of Mrs. Clinton’s work related emails. U.S. District Court Judge James E.

“The Obama State Department has had these 14,900 emails that Hillary Clinton tried to delete since July but has only released three emails,” stated Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton. “Americans should expect this stonewalling to end and that all these emails to be released before the November election.”
