Citizens United Cheryl Mills Emails

As FBI Director James Comey testifies before Congress today, conservative group Citizens United is releasing more than 1,300 pages of emails between Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department, Cheryl Mills, and Heather Samuelson, a former Clinton 2008 staffer and Mills employee at State.

Last year, Politico reported that Samuelson was responsible for determining which of Clinton’s emails were retained for federal records and which were destroyed.

Mills, who is also Clinton’s personal attorney, was given immunity in the FBI’s investigation into the former secretary of state’s handling of classified material on her private server.

Comey confirmed Wednesday morning that Mills was a “subject” in the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s emails and that classified material was also found on Mills’ computer.

The correspondence, obtained by Citizens United through Freedom of Information Act requests and lawsuits, span from late 2012 to early 2013 and “shed light on the activities of Mills and Samuelson at the State Department, which included appointments, ethics, [and] vetting,” according to the group.
