Judicial Watch has just announced that the State Department 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.  That is a lot of possible information that the FBI has just been sitting on and not revealing to the public.

The revelation came about during a federal court hearing in Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act lawsuit seeking Hillary Clinton’s emails that were received during her tenure of Secretary of State from February 2009 to January 31, 2013.

The hearing focused on the State Department’s progress in processing the tens of thousands of emails Clinton failed to disclose when she served as Secretary of State. None of these emails were sent by Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin that were found on the laptop of her estranged husband, Anthony Weiner. 40,000 of the emails still need to be processed.

“Judicial Watch asked the court to require the State Department to identify any records from the seven FBI discs that it intends to withhold, and why, in a timely manner. The State Department proceeded to say that they would be adding extra resources to its FOIA operation but would not commit to a faster production.

“‘On October 19, Judge Boasberg ordered the State Department to “explain how its anticipated increase in resources will affect processing of records in this case and when the processing of each disk is likely to be completed.” Surprisingly, the Tillerson State Department and Sessions Justice Department previously argued to the court that there was diminished public interest in the Clinton emails.,’ reports Judicial Watch.”

In November 2016 Judicial Watch had had enough with the State Department, and they ordered the state department to produce no less than 500 pages of records a month to the watchdogs.  The state department has produced 23 batches so far, and at their current pace, the emails won’t be fully available until 2020.

Clinton attempted to delete 33,000 emails from her private server, but the FBI has been able to find a number of these missing emails, many of which were government documents.

“Secretary Tillerson should be asked why his State Department is still sitting on a motherlode of Clinton emails,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It is disheartening that an administration elected to ‘drain the swamp’ is stalling the release of documents to protect Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration.”

    Can you say, “Statute of Limitations” ? Typical Clinton ploy that works.

    • Jeanne Stotler

      My belief the SOL sets in when a crime is discovered, there are many for the Clintons.

    • Joyce Ann Thompson

      But there is no statute of limitations on murder is there…..So many Clinton induced suicides that at least five of them should be proven to be true.

    “Morass’ bog/swamp may never get totally drained.Too much power and too much money to keep the feet dragging going on and on.

  • reagangs

    Politics is violence, so expecting the problems can be corrected by politicians is a bit of a stretch; only small changes can be expected but the root cause of criminal, commie/socialist politics will not be corrected in my lifetime; evil is as evil does. Political government is just organized crime; the experiment in democracy is a catastrophic disaster as the slaughter of wars and the economic ruin of recessions attest. The fiat currency is just legalized counterfeit and has looted most people and harmed the poor the most and the DemonKraits spawned that filthy, corrupt crap. Does anyone not see the duplicity of DemonKraits?

  • CaptTurbo

    I’m sure that the bogus FBI has redacted anything and everything that incriminates the criminals.

  • Jake

    I don’t think Statute of Limitations applies to treason.

    This could be one reason Soros just donated 18 B to the Leftists, to fight justice, and cover lawyer fees.

  • Pat Sugrue

    All these Democrats Clinton, learner, Pelosi, Schumer, Podesta, Obama… when asked questions, say they don’t know or don’t remember anything about any of these scandals. I say put them in general population in Attica Prison till their memory comes back. Then we might start getting some answers. Makes me puke that the repubs just go along and nothing gets done. Where would any of us be if we committed a crime yes in the crowbar hotel

    • Joyce Ann Thompson

      Why can they not be subpoenaed and then have to pass a lie detector test….when they keep saying they don’t remember, that machine will light up like a Christmas tree…..we know they only know how to lie.

  • Pam Johnson

    Nothing will happen to that old hag. Congress doesn’t have the balls.

  • stevethird

    Do something. No more talk.

  • TexanForever

    Just another box of exploding cigars for Trump’s team to hand out to the gullible and corrupt left. … Mueller is serving as Trump’s useful idiot to keep the action alive.

    Great work, Isabelle. If you want to hold a real, live sloth, just hug anyone working at the State Department; seems from your article they are in abundance at State.

  • Marilyn Stern

    Hillary Clinton was “Secretary of State” yet she still touts her ignorance like it is a badge of honor. The main stream media would have us believe that a woman who was appointed “Secretary of State,” then ran for President of the United States, is considered to be nothing more than grossly negligent when she blatantly breaks the law.

    No one talks about Beverly Jarrett, the Iranian plant who was known, by insiders, as our shadow president. She is still the Obama puppet master.

    The media seems to have no problem protecting Democrats by citing the reason they broke the law is because they are just careless. Sad to realize that state secrets were knowingly given to stupidly careless people. Not deliberately criminal but, stupidly careless. What does that say about the people who still defend them? Stupidly ignorant comes to mind.

    Please support Judicial Watch – it is a private organization that is forcing the government to supply documents through the Freedom of Information Act. Sometimes it takes years, but they don’t give up! These are the documents that will start draining the swamp….
