  • Obama administration blocks release of Clinton TPP emails

    Merely a coincidence that they won't be released until right after the election....

    Trade is a hot issue in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign. But correspondence from Hillary Clinton and her top State Department aides about a controversial 12-nation trade deal will not be available for public review — at least not until after the election. The Obama administration abruptly blocked the release of Clinton’s State Department correspondence about the so-called Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), after first saying it expected to produce the emails this spring.The decision came in response to International Business Times' open records request for correspondence between Clinton’s State Department office and the United States Trade Representative. The request, which was submitted in July 2015, specifically asked for all such correspondence that made reference to the TPP.
    The State Department originally said it estimated the request would be completed by April 2016. Last week the agency said it had completed the search process for the correspondence but also said it was delaying the completion of the request until late November 2016 — weeks after the presidential election. The delay was issued in the same week the Obama administration filed a court motion to try to kill a lawsuit aimed at forcing the federal government to more quickly comply with open records requests for Clinton-era State Department documents.

        With Obama's DoJ in on the cover-up...it's no wonder Hillary has been so confident of no indictment.


        OTOH...if they drag this out too long and Trump is elected POTUS, he will right the wrongs.

            “This is the most transparent administration in history,” Obama said during a Google Plus “Fireside” Hangout.

              Can you avoid saying it whenever the Hildabeast is the topic of conversation?

                    Here comes the FOIA lawsuits. All Obama has done is ensure the issue stays in the public eye rather than letting it die off early after whatever damage it might have done.

                        Or he could be doing this on purpose to get this effect. Just because the Clintons made a deal with Obama does not mean Barry is not trying to screw her chances at election.

                          True. Another case of a cover up with the Clintons will only reinforce in the minds of many people Hillary is an untrustworthy liar.

                            Given the level of transparency that we are capable of these days, I don't see how he can say that and look at himself in the mirror.

                            Overall, I don't think this will cost her any votes either way. I don't think most of the people who support her want to hear any of this. Conversely, the same can be said for most of Trump's supporters. Society is all about side dishes and centerpieces, and no main course, these days.

                              Unfortunately, this is true. As long as the media devotes more attention to bathroom politics than to secretive trade discussions, this issue will have no traction. How much coverage was given this particular issue about the the Clinton emails remaining secret until after November? Not much.
