Washington Examiner: Citizens United seeks emails linking Clinton aides to foundation, Teneo firm

Emails and other communications exchanged among three of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's inner circle of advisers and officials at her family's foundation and a controversial consulting firm are at the center of the latest transparency lawsuit to hit the Department of State.

Citizens United, a right-leaning activist nonprofit, sued the department March 16 after it ignored a series of Freedom of Information Act requests for written and electronic communications of Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and Kris Balderston, all longtime Clinton confidantes and close aides at the State Department.

But David Bossie, president of Citizens United, is worried the agency will drag its heels in the court case until Clinton's presumed presidential campaign heats up so officials can frame his group's requests as politically motivated attacks.

Bloomberg: Citizens United Files New Lawsuit Seeking State Department Watchdog Documents

Citizens United filed its fourth lawsuit against the State Department on Thursday, this time seeking documents related to the agency’s Office of Inspector General during former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s tenure.

In the suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, the conservative advocacy group complains that the State Department has not responded to two of its Freedom of Information Act requests in more than six months, beyond acknowledging receiving them. The statutory requirement is 20 business days.

Breitbart: EXCLUSIVE: HILLARY CLINTON’S ‘CONFLICT OF INTEREST’

Citizens United has released a devastating new video, titled, “Conflict of Interest,” which asks hard-hitting questions about Hillary Clinton’s lack of transparency in providing information to the public about her Clinton Family Foundation, which brings in over $200 million dollars in revenue each year.

The video’s transcript reads:

"Its 3am and your children are safe and asleep. But theres a phone in the White House. And its ringing. Something’s happening in the world. A foreign leader is calling. And Hillary Clinton is listening. Why? Because he’s also a contributor to the Clinton Family Foundation. How much foreign money can buy your president? Can we afford to find out?"

Citizens United President David Bossie told Breitbart News that the American people deserve “100% transparency from the Clinton Family Foundation,” and that means they should “disclose 100% of their donors–both foreign and domestic.”

Politico: Citizens United files new lawsuit for Clinton records

The conservative group Citizens United filed its second lawsuit in a little over a week Tuesday, heading to court to demand photos, videos and hotel bills of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's travels during her four years as America's top diplomat.

The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Washington (and posted here) complains that the State Department has taken no action for months on separate requests the advocacy group filed for all official photos of Clinton, all videos State made of her and for hotel invoices and other records relating to 10 foreign trips she took as secretary from 2010 through 2012.

A State Department spokesperson declined to comment on the newly-filed suit.

Last week, Citizens United filed suit seeking emails and other correspondence between top aides to Clinton and consulting firm Teneo, which was founded by one of President Bill Clinton's top aides, as well as correspondence relating to the Clinton Foundation.

The conservative group was already suing State in yet another case over a failure to respond to a request for manifests of travelers on Clinton's official trips. Earlier this month, a judge set deadlines for the agency to begin rolling disclosures of records responsive to that request, but she did not rule that any specific information must be disclosed.

National Review: Citizens United Is Definitely Ready for Hillary

It’s barely been a week since a federal lawsuit by David Bossie’s Citizens United strong-armed the State Department into turning over records on Hillary Clinton’s official travels, but the group is already champing at the bit for more.

After suing once to force State to provide passenger manifests for the former secretary’s flights and a second time on March 16 to obtain Hillary’s correspondence with Clinton Foundation donors, the conservative advocacy group filed a third Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the department on Tuesday.

It’s all part of a multi-pronged offensive against the secretive cabinet department, a campaign that’s itself a dry run for Citizens United’s real battle with the upcoming Clinton presidential candidacy in 2016.

Newsmax: David Bossie: Ted Cruz Speaks Truth to Power

Citizens United president David Bossie tells Newsmax the appeal of a Sen. Ted Cruz presidential candidacy is that he "speaks truth to power."

"That's really his message to the American people — that the days of kicking the can down the road are over," Bossie told J.D. Hayworth and Miranda Khan on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV Monday.

Greenville News: DeMint to speak at conservative summit in Greenville

Organizers of the South Carolina Freedom Summit planned in downtown Greenville in early May had already announced a string of conservative Republican speakers for the May 9 event.

On Wednesday they named one who was born in Greenville.

Former U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint will be among those taking the stage at the Peace Center for a full day of conservative politics, according to Citizens United, the activist group that's hosting the event in conjunction with U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan of Laurens.

DeMint, a Wade Hampton High School graduate who formerly ran a marketing business in Greenville, was elected to represent South Carolina in the Senate in 2004 after three terms representing Greenville/Spartanburg in the House.

He won a second Senate term in 2010 but left one-third of the way through it to become president of The Heritage Foundation, the conservative think tank in Washington, DC.

The Washington Post: Citizens United files new lawsuit for Clinton-related State Department records

The conservative advocacy group Citizens United filed a new lawsuit against the U.S. State Department Monday, asking that a judge compel the agency to respond to long-lingering freedom of information requests from the organization.

In its new suit, the group asks for the State Department to respond to four separate requests seeking documents that were filed in May and July of last year. They included a request for correspondence between Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, and officials at the Teneo Consulting firm. Teneo was founded by Doug Band, a former aide to President Bill Clinton. For a time, Abedin was employed simultaneously by Teneo and the State Department.

Another request sought correspondence between Abedin and officials with the Clinton Foundation and another sought records showing correspondence between Clinton's chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, and officials with the Clinton Foundation. The group indicated that the State Department has released no documents in response to any of the requests.
