Today the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia denied the State Department’s request for the appointment of a coordinating judge to oversee lawsuits involving Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin’s State Department records. Had the Court appointed a coordinating judge, efforts to release Mills and Abedin’s emails to the public could have been delayed well into 2016.
“The State Department has tried, and failed, once again, to delay the production of emails which demonstrate how Clinton, Inc. operated within the State Department,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “Time and time again, the State Department has sought to drag its feet in responding to FOIA requests. This miscellaneous action was just another effort to delay the release of records. The Court was right to deny the State Department’s request. The public has the right to inspect these important documents.”
