Meanwhile, the Hillary Clinton Email Case Is Still Alive and Well in Federal Court
Judicial Watch announced Thursday a hearing has been set for Tuesday, March 7 on Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit seeking former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails sent or received during her tenure from February 2009 to January 31, 2013. The FOIA request also includes all emails by other State Department employees to Clinton regarding her non-‘state.gov’ email address (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00687)). The case is before Judge James E. Boasberg.
Items of discussion at the hearing will be the emails of Clinton aide Huma Abedin that were found on the laptop of Anthony Weiner, Abedin’s estranged husband. Judicial Watch also will be seeking answers surrounding the timing of the release of Clinton’s emails recovered by the FBI in its investigation of the server used by Clinton and others.
The State Department has previously been ordered to produce documents to Judicial Watch, and is currently processing 500 pages per month from disk one of seven available disks. At the upcoming hearing, the State Department must address the number of documents subject to FOIA on the remaining disks.
The hearing will be 9:30 a.m. ET Tuesday, March 7, in Courtroom 21 of the U.S. District Court for the District of Colombia in Washington, D.C.
The lawsuit was originally filed in May 2015.
