Courts Squeeze Government Over Hillary

A federal Judge has refused the government’s request to delay turning over communications between Clinton aides and Secretary of State Clinton and the Clinton Foundation., scheduled for Monday.
“In the Citizens United case, the group was scheduled to get by Monday all correspondence between Clinton aides Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin and the Clinton Foundation, the lobbying firm Teneo and various related individuals. (Judge) Sullivan said there was no reason to lift that deadline agreed to in May.”

Judge Sullivan told the government that it was their proposal for September 13, and that the government was simply dragging its feet. 

There were two lawsuits in question, and both filed under the Freedom Of Information. The Judicial Watch, and Citizens United: Citizens regarding the e-mails and Judicial Watch sued about Huma Abedin’s relationship with Hillary Clinton’s staff, the service she rendered to the Clinton Foundation, and the work she did, simultaneously for an outside firm, Teneo.

In a related matter, the State Department has agreed with Hillary that she had the sole right to decide which e-mails she would delete. 

It remains to be seen if the Courts agree with this.
