Archives to clear Clinton logs in March
By ANDREW DeMILLO, Associated Press Writer 5 minutes ago
The National Archives said Monday it expects to release Hillary Rodham Clinton's schedules as first lady later this month, but has asked a judge to delay the release of thousands of her telephone logs for one to two years.
Susan Cooper, a spokeswoman for the National Archives, said a representative of former President Clinton has reviewed about 10,000 pages of Hillary Clinton's schedules and approved them for release last week. The archives will soon notify the White House, which must also sign off on the papers' release.
"We are preparing the materials and we still have to give the White House notification. We'll finish processing the materials for opening and we estimate the opening will be before the end of March," Cooper said.
The archives said in court papers filed Saturday that it needs more time to process 20,000 pages of Clinton's phone logs that have also been sought by Judicial Watch, a conservative public interest group that has accused the library of delaying the release of the documents. The Archives has said limited staff has hampered the release of records and has accused Judicial Watch of trying to jump ahead of other pending Freedom of Information Act requests.
"The library would require a stay of at least one to two years before which it will begin processing the remaining records as the request arises in the queue structure," the Archives said in a motion filed in federal court in Washington.
Clinton has faced criticism from fellow Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and Republicans over the number of White House documents from her husband's administration that have not been made public.
