The State Department Under Obama’s Administration Says It Will Take 75 Years To Fulfill A FOIA Request Of Clinton State Aides’ Emails.

Wash Exam-

“That is an incredible number,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner admitted. But he said the estimate is accurate because the RNC’s request is “very complex.”

“It’s a very broad range involving a number of people over a period of four years, and it’s not an outlandish estimation, believe it or not,” Toner said.

The State Department said in a court filing that it would take about 75 years for it to release all the emails to three of Clinton’s former aides: Cheryl Mills, Jacob Sullivan and Patrick Kennedy. The RNC is seeking those emails in a FOIA request.

“Given the Department’s current FOIA workload and the complexity of these documents, it can process about 500 pages a month, meaning it would take approximately 16-and-2/3 years to complete the review of the Mills documents, 33-and-1/3 years to finish the review of the Sullivan documents, and 25 years to wrap up the review of the Kennedy documents — or 75 years in total,” the department argued.

  1. Maybe a Special Prosecutor could help speed things up a bit. Is there anyone in Congress with a sense of right and wrong that will look out for the people of this country?

  2. If a Constitutional judge with any balls still exists these fuckers need to start rotting in jail cells in ever increasing numbers until the laws of this country are actually followed. If I am not mistaken, GITMO has plenty of room these days.

  3. Maybe if they reduced the font size from 72 point to a more realistic 9 point it would take 1.19 years.

  4. Simple: the judge should sequester the FOIA examiners until the work is complete.

    Since that’s quite a number of people for unusually long stays, and they will require govt “secure” communications, I suggest working a deal with a military base with an excess of barracks space or other quarters. My first choice would be to send all these workers to Minot AFT for the duration of the task.

  5. The level of corruption in our government is so infuriating it makes my blood pressure go up, which in turn causes me to have to go to a doctor. If only I had one.

  6. One more thing about my sequestration idea. The FOIA analysts and clerks will of course need close supervision, and their work will need to be reviewed by very senior State Dept. bureaucrats. Super-grades, I’m sure, in substantial numbers will simply have to be on-site to assure quality work product.

    75 years, they say? BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

  7. I’ll just wait for the movie, “The Big SHIT” to come out (on Netflix maybe) and take it from there.

  8. Combine Jayne Cobb’s and Uncle Al’s ideas. Sequester them all in Gitmo until they complete the task and not a moment sooner.

  9. How about hauling a couple of those auditors out and shoot them in the head; then see How long it takes.

  10. 75 years…
    for 3 people’s emails…
    and it’s too complex.

    Agreed.
    This means the entirety of the State Department is thoroughly incompetent, or…
    the entirety of the State Department is thoroughly lazy, or…
    government on the whole is vastly too large and bureaucratic.

    Regardless of which may be true, the cure is the same: fire the entirety of the State Department and disband the entity. Then do the same with the other 98% of the government that is both unconstitutional and cumbersome, at best, to the cause of liberty.

  11. Mr. Trump has an excellent opportunity here.
    Proclaim that any maggots involved with such shenanigans at State will be dismissed upon his taking the Oath, and that his people will honor EVERY FOIA request IN A TIMELY MANNER, and he will see that the e-mails are released within 6 months.
    PERIOD.
