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.
