Posted on 10/27/2017 6:02:53 PM PDT by drewh
President Donald Trump has made it clear to the State Department that he wants to accelerate the release of any remaining Hillary Clinton emails in its possession as soon as possible, according to three sources familiar with the President's thinking.
The sources described the President's interest in the release of the emails -- and the testimony of the FBI informant -- as rooted in a commitment to "transparency," with one source adding that "the law requires cooperation with Congress and the courts."
. In a memo to State Department employees, Tillerson said that the department will commit more resources and workforce to address the long queue of requests.
In a statement to CNN, also after the initial publication of this story, Raj Shah, White House principal deputy press secretary said, "This President wants all federal agencies to meet their obligations under the law and be transparent with the public." The sources also said Trump has expressed frustration with government agencies that have been slow in responding to requests for information that he believes should be public, especially given congressional and court-ordered requests for the information. One source also said this effort is not about any individual or any particular item of evidence. However, both the lifting of the gag order and the effort on the emails involve one political figure who happens to be the President's favorite target: Hillary Clinton.

Two sources said the President's push for transparency is proper protocol. The slow pace has caught the ire of conservative news outlets, which have slammed Tillerson for not doing enough to get Clinton's emails out in the open.

So now, the Clintoon traitors will be suddenly concerned about releasing National Secrets via her emails, if they are released.
It’s about Time!
Bring the Swamp to its Knees!
Gloria Borger is a joke.
Well Trump is releasing the rest of the JFK files, so why not the HRC ones too?
cnn making up more fabricated news.
This Friday night is turning into a real barn burner. And we have the World Series...
Why does Trump not tell Sessions to go after any stalling as a crime and possibly accomplice to any Hillary crimes? And tell Sessions if he does not go like he is on fire then he will be fired and then charged as an accomplice to Hillary.
Did not the NSA say hey had the “missing 30,000 e-mails”? Why not release those too?????
That about sums it up.
the thing that I love about trump is that he has used the lefts tactics against them. one of the big tactic that Hillary and Bill would use is the delay delay and then telling everyone that it does not mater because it is old news. trump will let them delay but instead of excepting it is old news he will go after who ever was in charge for hiding the E-mails and pound the Clintons on the content of those E-mails
Hey, President Trump. Clean the efing State Department....NOW!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m sincerely sorry for all of the MANY times I called Trump a “dick” in the past 12 years. This man IS The Art Of The Deal!
He is the President. How about:
TRUMP ORDERS RELEASE OF HILLARY E-MAILS
BTW, I wonder if President Trump has somehow acquired Hillary’s 800 FBI files?
Sure they will, but everything will be redacted except ‘and’ and ‘the’. The swamp is filled with 5th column skunks who’ll protect her at any cost.
They can't release what doesn't exist.
