According to public reporting, Secretary Hillary Clinton maintained a private schedule.1 During Secretary Clinton’s tenure, Lona Valmoro and Linda Dewan served as the Secretary’s schedulers.

The records I request can be described as follows:

Any and all records, in any format, that concern, mention, or reference a schedule, appointment, event, appearance, or any other anticipated commitment of presence or communication be it known by any other name, of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that was created by, sent by, and/or sent to, Secretary Clinton and/or the Secretary’s schedulers Lona Valmoro and/or Linda Dewan.

Where exemptions to the Freedom Of Information Act are discretionary, I ask you not withhold such records, even if they might qualify for withholding under the law. If you withhold any records as exempt, please redact the exempted portions and release the remainder of the records. Please release all reasonably segregable material. In any case where you withhold any records, please explain in writing any such denial.

Time Period: January 21, 2009 – February 1, 2013
