Vets Group to Sue State Department

Sarah Westwood reports in the Washington Examiner:

A veterans group that filed a Freedom of Information Act request for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s personal and work emails in July 2014 is preparing a lawsuit against the State Department for refusing to respond to the request after more than seven months.

Joel Arends, chairman of Veterans for a Strong America, said his group specifically requested Clinton’s personal emails from a specific time period before and after the Benghazi terror attack in case Clinton had also sent some relevant emails using her personal account during that time.

Arends said he was unaware at the time of the request that Clinton had relied exclusively on a private email account using a server located at her New York private residence.

“At this point in time, I think we’re the only ones that specifically asked for both her personal and government email and phone logs,” Arends said of his group’s Benghazi-related request.

Veterans for a Strong America filed the FOIA request in the course of writing a book, “The Difference it Makes,” about the government’s handling of the Benghazi attack.
