Once again, the Obama administration shows off how “transparent” it is.
(CNN)The State Department says it needs until next year before it will be ready to publicly release tens of thousands of Hillary Clinton emails from her time in charge.
The uproar over Clinton’s exclusive use of private, rather than official, email during her tenure as Secretary of State erupted earlier this year and is still rumbling on.
In an effort to defuse the crisis ahead of the announcement of her 2016 presidential run, Clinton said in March that she wanted “the public to see my email” and had asked the State Department to release them.
The department is also under pressure from a Freedom of Information Act lawsuits seeking the release of documents related to Clinton that haven’t been made public.
This looks like an intentional political hit against Clinton from Obama to time the release in the heat of the presidential campaign,
