Trump, GOP calls on Clinton tohave full State Dept schedulereleased

The Donald Trump campaign and Washington

Republicans are calling on Democratic presidential

nominee Hillary Clinton to have all of her daily

schedules as secretary of state released before Election

Day, after the State Department said Friday it cannot

comply with the court-ordered release until after

voting.

The Associated Press reported earlier this week, after

analyzing schedules released so far, that more than

half the people outside the government who met or

spoke by telephone with Clinton while she was

secretary of state had given money — either

personally or through companies or groups — to the

Clinton Foundation.

“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 after the agency told AP lawyers late

Friday that the last of the detailed schedules won’t be

release until around Dec. 30.

“Voters deserve to know the truth before they cast

their ballots,” Miller continued. “Hillary Clinton

should immediately demand that these public records

be released before voting begins.”

The State Department has so far released about half

of the schedules — seven months after a federal judge

ordered the agency to begin releasing monthly batches

of Clinton’s detailed daily schedules, which show with

whom she had meetings.

Revelation about the foundation’s fundraising and

allegations of a 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.
