72,000 pages is a lot of Clinton emails to process. It seems to have overwhelmed the FBI and the State Department. It seems that they still have 40,000 left to go. The slow rate of processing seems to be getting on the Judge’s nerves.
Judge James E. Boasberg is presiding over the Freedom of Information Act lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch against the State Department. The Judge has been getting really tired of the foot-dragging at the FBI and the Department of State.
The Judge now wants the State Department to explain how the addition of extra resources will affect the processing time. Methinks that the Judge wants to help them get more efficient. Things move awfully slow in the Swamp.
As Written By Tom Fitton for Breitbart:
President Trump’s efforts to drain the Washington swamp are being seriously hindered by the Deep State, particularly in the State and Justice Departments.
As an example, the State Department just revealed in a federal court hearing that it has yet to process 40,000 of 72,000 pages of Hillary Clinton records that the FBI recovered last year. The revelation came in our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit seeking former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails that were sent or received during her tenure from February 2009 to January 31, 2013 (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00687)). The case is before Judge James E. Boasberg.
The hearing, which took place last week, focused on the State Department’s progress on processing the tens of thousands of emails Clinton failed to disclose when she served as secretary of state, some of which were emails sent by Clinton aide Huma Abedin that were found on the laptop of her estranged husband, Anthony Weiner.
The State Department has processed 32,000 pages of emails so far, only a small number of which have been released, but 40,000 pages remain to be processed…….
