Working to the Rules

For John, BLUFDepartment of State doesn't want to do the work, and get into the muck of the controversy.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

State Dept. would need 75 years to compile Clinton emails

This is from The Hill, by Reporter Lisa Hagen.
Lawyers said it would take that long to compile the 450,000 pages of records from former Clinton aides Cheryl Mills, Jacob Sullivan and Patrick Kennedy, according to a court filing from last week, which was first reported by CNN.

"Given the Department's current [Freedom of Information Act] (FOIA) workload and the complexity of these documents, it can process about 500 pages a month, meaning it would take approximately 16-and-2/3 years to complete the review of the Mills documents, 33-and-1/3 years to finish the review of the Sullivan documents, and 25 years to wrap up the review of the Kennedy documents — or 75 years in total," the State Department said in the filing.

That is about 25 pages a day.  A little over 3 an hour.  I guess that is the case.  They don't call it "Foggy Bottom" without reason.

They better not make me SecState in January.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
