The Donald Trump campaign responded to the late Friday announcement by the State Department that it will not be making available before election day Hillary Clinton’s remaining schedules as secretary of state by calling on the candidate to intervene.
Joined by Washington Republicans, the Trump campaign said Hillary Clinton should “demand” that her daily schedules as secretary of state be released before November 8, according to Fox News.
As a result of a partial response to the news agency’s Freedom Of Information Act requests, the Associated Press reported last week that more than half the people outside the government who met with Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money in some manner to the Clinton Foundation.
There are more schedules that have yet to be released, with the State Department saying it cannot comply with a court-order until after the election.
“It is unacceptable that the State Department is now refusing to release her official schedule before the election in full,” Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller said.
“Voters deserve to know the truth before they cast their ballots,” Miller added. “Hillary Clinton should immediately demand that these public records be released before voting begins.”
Fox News said the “so-called ‘pay-to-play’ operation, along with Clinton’s use of a private server system while secretary of state for official emails, have raised question among voters about her trustworthiness and transparency.”
