NEW: State Won’t Correct Error on Clinton’s 2012 Schedule

On Thursday, Citizens United demanded the State Department offered an explanation for why one part of Sec. Clinton’s schedule was listed as “2010.”

Clinton Emails Quid Pro Quo

This week, the State Department released Hillary Clinton’s schedules from September 2012 through February 2013. The release is in response to FOIA litigation from Citizens United.

Citizens United quickly noticed that, for one week in Secretary Clinton’s schedule, the year is listed as “2010” and not “2012.” Of note, the week in question was the week prior to the terror attacks in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.

In response to a Citizens United inquiry on the error, the government said “someone made a mistake entering the year in the schedule four years ago.”

However, the government won’t correct the record. From Citizens United:

Citizens United then asked if the State Department was planning on correcting the record and the government again said that in the context of FOIA, the State Department produces records that exist and doesn’t clean up errors in the records.

Citizens United is “concerned” about the government’s response, and has asked State to “provide a detailed explanation for this error in Secretary Clinton’s schedule during the week leading up to the terrorist attack in Benghazi.”
