In a letter filed on Tuesday in federal court, the FBI said they plan to turn over relevant documents seized as part of their federal probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. Some of those documents could ultimately become public as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the conservative group, Judicial Watch. In the letter, the FBI’s general counsel James A. Baker wrote “During the course of the investigation, the FBI obtained certain information that may include agency records of the Department of State. In accordance with our policies and procedures, the FBI will be providing this information to your Department for review and determination of record status to the Federal Records and subsequent FOIA processing as appropriate.”
Baker said they are doing this because the FBI investigation into this matter has been closed. Judicial Watch, and other organizations, including Vice, were denied FOIA records in recent months because the State Department said they were part of the ongoing FBI investigation. Now that the investigation has concluded, it is likely those documents will eventually be released.
Attorneys for Clinton appeared to oppose the effort, saying in court files that her email account was private and “has never been the property of or possessed by the State Department.”
It was not immediately clear whether Clinton could block the handover or release of records, or when such steps might take place. An FBI spokesman did not immediately respond www.washingtonpost.com... 2/c1a1c67c-4856-11e6-acbc-4d4870a079da_story.html
