Accuracy in Media

The State Department didn’t do an adequate job, in the judge’s eyes, of discovering previously-moved files about Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Judge Emmet Sullivan of U.S. District Court noted that discovery is “rare” in lawsuits over the Freedom of Information Act, but said in an order issued Wednesday that the State Department has not made a “good faith” effort to hand over documents from Clinton’s office.

Sullivan said he was “unpersuaded” by the State Department’s legal argument against discovery, which would permit attorneys from Judicial Watch, a conservative group that sued the agency over a stonewalled FOIA request, to question Clinton aides about the nature of the server under a set of legal guidelines.
