The Department of State was caught red-handed, and they are dragging Hillary Clinton to court with them. According to a report by Politico, the State Department delayed responses to Associated Press concerning information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's schedules and her top staffers for FOUR YEARS.
Naturally, this delay isn’t the State Department’s fault. As reported by Politico:
Justice Department lawyers representing State said a surge in FOIA requests caused large backlogs at the agency. They also said State is struggling with a wave of lawsuits since the disclosure in March that Clinton exclusively used a private email server during her service as secretary. In December, she returned 55,000 pages of emails at her former agency's request.
