The State Department has no respect for you.
The State Department on Thursday afternoon released a batch of 5,500 pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails online, in its second-to-last tranche of the former secretary of State’s messages.
Thursday’s dump — coming the afternoon of New Year’s Eve — is the seventh of eight court-ordered releases….
The emails released Thursday do not have “fully completed data fields on the FOIA website,” the State Department said earlier in the day.
This means they can’t be easily sorted by subject, sender or recipient — which had been an option in previous email dumps.
In other words, not only did the State Department dump the documents on New Year’s Eve, it dumped documents many of which are not accessible.
The rush to get something online appears to be due to the State Department having failed to comply with court-ordered deadlines. And, via Politico, the number of “classified” emails has skyrocketed:
More than 1,000 emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server during her time at the State Department have now been deemed classified, after the agency publicly released its eighth batch of the messages late Thursday.
The agency released roughly 5,500 more pages of emails from the private email account that Clinton exclusively used during her four years at Foggy Bottom, with an additional 275 messages now upgraded to classified, bringing the total number of classified emails that moved through Clinton’s unsecured server to 1,274.
While most of those were elevated to the “confidential” level, according to a State Department official, two in the most recent batch were upgraded to the “Secret” level, a more sensitive classification for issues that affect national security.
Happy New Year, suckers! https://t.co/kfS4OMQIbk
