AP sues State Department, seeking access to Clinton records
WASHINGTON - The Associated Press is suing the U.S. State Department to force the release of email correspondence and government documents from Hillary Rodham Clinton's tenure as secretary of state.
The international news organization filed suit Wednesday morning in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
The legal action comes after repeated requests filed under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act have gone unfulfilled. They include one request AP made five years ago and others pending since the summer of 2013.
The requests target materials related to the potential presidential candidate's public and private calendars, correspondence involving longtime aides, and Clinton-related emails about the Osama bin Laden raid and National Security Agency surveillance practices.
