A watchdog group said on Tuesday that the State Department withheld a document that would have revealed Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email address two years ago, before finally agreeing to release it earlier this month.
State Department officials removed files from the secretary’s office related to the Benghazi attack in Libya and transferred them to another department after receiving a congressional subpoena last spring, delaying the release of the records to Congress for over a year.
The U.S. State Department reached an agreement with the watchdog group Judicial Watch on Friday that would allow the organization’s attorneys to depose Hillary Clinton’s top aides about the “creation and operation” of her private email server.
Hillary Clinton appointed a former fundraiser to a special position at the State Department while he was laying the foundation for what would soon become a multi-million dollar global consulting firm with connections to former president Bill Clinton, Politico reported Wednesday.
President Obama undermined his defense of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during an interview this past weekend when he told a reporter, “there’s classified, and then there’s classified,” according to analysis by the New York Times.
