Hillary Clinton is no stranger to scandal or controversy. Her name has been spread around like the Swine Flu in 2009. It could just be the curse of the Clinton name because it seems wherever the word “Clinton” is mentioned, shortly after is a new, or old, skeleton that is waiting to come out of the closet.It could just be that the “Clinton’s” aren’t very good at learning lessons, whatever the reason is, Hillary may have found the answer.
The State Department made a statement that it will take 75 years to compile the 450,000 pages of emails between Hillary and her two top aides. Way to go, Hillary, it looks like you’re off the hook until 2091.
Apparently, the workload of the Freedom Of Information Act is only able to process around 500 pages a month, “based on the complexity of these specific documents,” at least that’s what The State Department said.
To break that down:
- It would take 16 and 2/3 years to review the Mills documents.
- 33 and 1/3 years to review the Sullivan documents.
- And 25 years to wrap up the Kennedy documents.
A whopping 75 years in total, well at least we know the State Department can do rudimentary math.
Elizabeth Trudeau, a spokeswoman for the State Department said that “The volume of FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests by the Department has tripled since 2008…. In fiscal year 2015 alone we received approximately 22,000 FOIA requests.”‘
Basically, what Elizabeth is saying is that they just don’t have the resources, or manpower, to complete the requests quicker.
Mark Toner, another spokesman for the State Department commented that “…it’s not an outlandish estimation, believe it or not.”
There have always been the accusations, most notably from the State Department Inspector Generals, who claimed that the Department constantly gives slow, incomplete, and inaccurate responses to FOIA requests. Of course, that goes hand in hand with coming up with vital information after the November election. Although this time, around, the results seem very promising. Hillary better watch out because in 2091 she will most likely be indicted meaning her chances of running for president when she is 143 years old don’t look so good.
