Clinton records: Judge sets schedule for release to AP

Aug 7, 2015 5:05 PM

A judge has given the State Department a few months to provide The Associated Press with thousands of documents related to Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The order came Friday from U.S. District Judge Richard Leon. It means the documents will be released well before the spring presidential primary elections. They include Clinton's schedules and calendars from her time as secretary of state.

The AP sued in March after the department failed to turn over files requested under the Freedom of Information Act, including one request made more than five years ago.

The State Department has said it struggled to meet the AP's demand on time because of limited staff resources and thousands of other pending requests.

A State Department spokesman did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
