As Twitchy reported Monday, the State Department responded to a Freedom of Information Act request for Hillary Clinton’s emails on the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal by saying it would produce the records by the end of November — well after the 2016 general election.
Now that David Sirota, who filed the FOIA request as a reporter for the International Business Times, has made his letter from the State Department public, some keen eyes have found that the date by which the State Department expects to comply — Nov. 31 — will be impossible to meet.

@CNN Anyone care to explain why it would take 75 years? What does it take to review an e-mail? How many people are working on it? Such lies!

Well, according to the president himself, “there’s classified, and then there’s classified,” and it takes a while to tell which is which.
@CNN Hillary should probably put a thank you card in the mail to Barack Obama for covering all this up

The press was happy to crowdsource the job of combing through Sarah Palin’s official email for juicy bits. Why not do it again?
@CNN it would take even longer if they continue to sit on their ass. America deserves the respect of the truth. No more spin bullshit
