Their stalling may actually harm Grandma more, dragging it out to a time when more people will be free to pay attention to it.
It’s a good thing laws only apply to the little people in Obama’s America, or Hillary Clinton and her State Department colleagues would be in a lot of trouble. The State Department has once again violated a court order by failing to meet the deadline for producing Clinton’s emails.
“We have worked diligently to come as close to the goal as possible, but with the large number of documents involved and the holiday schedule we have not met the goal this month. To narrow that gap, the State Department will make another production of former Secretary Clinton’s email sometime next week,” the department said in a statement.
As the Washington Times notes, the State Department missed the first email production deadline, got caught up, and then fell behind again.
5,500 pages of documents are supposed to be released on New Year’s Eve, right when absolutely no one will pay attention to them. The final 5,400 emails will be released next month… which the Times notes is “just days before Iowa voters hold the caucuses that kick off the primary season, deciding whether Mrs. Clinton will be Democrats’ presidential nominee.”
Also, as The Hill observes, the hasty production of about half the emails State was required to hand over in December means most of the documents won’t have “fully completed data fields on the [Freedom of Information Act] website,” so searching them will be more difficult.
