RELEASE: State Department Acknowledges Error In Clinton Schedule, Citizens United Releases Schedule In Question

10/20/2016

This week the State Department produced the last batch of Hillary Clinton's State Department schedules.

They cover mostly September 2012 – February 2013, with some random schedules mixed in as well.

Today Citizens United is releasing Secretary Clinton's schedule from September 2012.

As you will see, the schedules for September 1st through 9th are dated 2010.

When asked about this discrepancy, a government lawyer for the State Department said that while the year is wrong, the schedules do reflect what occurred from September 1st through 9th 2012.

Citizens United asked if a correct version of the schedule exists and the government's response was that the records speak for themselves and that in FOIA litigation the State Department produces what exists, not correct errors in the requested records.

Citizens United asked what the reason was for the error and the government's response was that someone made a mistake entering the year in the schedule four years ago.

Citizens United then asked if the State Department was planning on correcting the record and the government again said that in the context of FOIA, the State Department produces records that exist and doesn't clean up errors in the records.

Citizens United is concerned about this revelation.

We believe at very least the State Department should provide a detailed explanation for this error in Secretary Clinton's schedule during the week leading up to the terrorist attack in Benghazi and correct the record for future requesters.

For instance, if a future FOIA request asked for Secretary Clinton's schedule from September 1 – 9, 2012, is it possible the requester would be told no responsive records exist?
