It seems as if Americans will not see exactly what Hillary Clinton said in her deleted work emails until after the presidential election in November.According to The Daily Caller, a federal judge made the decision in a case involving watchdog Judicial Watch’s lawsuit against the State Department for Clinton’s emails.Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton demanded that the federal government release the emails to the public before the election.
“The State Department admitted that it has 5,600 Clinton emails recovered by the FBI that were government documents and not personal emails as she claimed,” he said.
“The public deserves to know what is in those emails, well before Nov. 8, and the State Department should not continue dragging its feet on producing them. The State Department admitted in court today it pulled staff off of Clinton email Freedom of Information Act requests.”
“It is outrageous the State Department has had these new Clinton emails since late July, but has only released 5 records,” Fitton continued.
But a federal judge decided that he will not release those emails in their entirety until after Nov. 4.
The State Department has been ordered to release 350 pages of emails by Oct. 7, 350 more on Oct. 21 and Nov 4. Only after November will the State Department release around 500 pages of those emails per month.
Fitton released a statement following this decision.
“The State Department is being obstructionist,” he said, understandable upset with the decision.
So far, only a few of Clinton’s emails have been released, and most of them were personal emails. Who knows what the other thousands of pages contain.
The American people have a right to know exactly who they are voting for before the November election.
