The NY Times reported that Judge Gladys Kessler of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia ordered the State Department to produce passenger manifests from 47 overseas trips that Mrs. Clinton made as secretary of state.
Citizens United, the Karl Rove PAC, requested the documents in July but the government is delaying or ignoring FOIA requests as a matter of policy. The group made 18 FOIA requests that have been ignored. It’s not just their FOIA requests. It’s everyone who opposes the administration and we are losing one of our fundamental rights to a transparent government.
The group wants to know if Clinton Foundation donors had accompanied Mrs. Clinton on State Department trips.
It will be hard to show a direct link between donations and government contracts but it’s worth looking at. If nothing else, this is a good sign that courts are ready to force the government to give up records as the law requires.
Clinton took a year after leaving office to transfer work-related email from her private account to State. She had her lawyers review the 62,320 emails after a congressional investigation requested the documents. A keyword search was done and the ones they deemed appropriate were sent. leaving 31,830 that did not come up in a keyword search. She then deleted those – she says.
She won’t allow anyone to look at her server. Trey Gowdy, who is leading the Benghazi investigation in the House, tried to broker a deal with her and offered to have an independent company examine the files on her server.
A National Journal report recently revealed that The Clinton Foundation has accepted more than $2 billion in donations from foreign donors and the question remains as to whether or not they will influence her decisions should she become president.
She’s not alone in violating this particular law to conceal her activities but that doesn’t exonerate her.
We are being ruled by an elite class who are above the law and some do whatever they want.
