Yesterday, the State Department released another batch of emails from Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State. Clinton has said on several occasions that she wants the emails available to the public in the interest of transparency. News organizations release quotes from a few of her emails, but anyone can access the latest emails. Since the release of the emails is part of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), all the emails are being posted to the State Department’s FOIA website. To access the emails that have been released so far, follow the steps below:
- Go to http://foia.state.gov/Search
- Type “F-2014-20439” in the Case Number field
- Click on the arrow next to the “Posted Date” column header and select “Sort Descending” so that the recently released documents show first
- Click the title of the document in the “Subject” field to open a PDF copy
As of this posting, the search yields 20,784 emails and documents, and this number will continue to grow. The State Department should wrap up the release of the emails next month. For all the latest, follow our Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
