Judge Explodes Over Hillary Email Delays

An irritated federal judge Thursday grilled the State Department on a pattern of delayed document releases that has turned a possible bureaucratic logjam into a major problem for Hillary Clinton.
U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon said he simply did not understand why the State Department has dragged its feet on responses for emails in requests to the Freedom of Information Act. The judge was examining a request for just over 60 emails. He said, “Now, any person should be able to review that in one day — one day, adding,“Even the least ambitious bureaucrat could do this.” Leon articulated what has been a major concern of State Department critics who contend that the agency is dragging out responses to Freedom of Information requests to protect Clinton, who served as secretary of state during Obama’s first term.
