WASHINGTON (AP) — The government is telling The Associated Press it won’t finish before Election Day releasing monthly batches of the detailed daily schedules showing meetings by Hillary Clinton during her time as secretary of state. That comes seven months after a federal judge ordered it to begin releasing them.

The department has so far released about half of the schedules. Its lawyers said in a phone conference with the AP’s lawyers that the department now expects to release the last of the detailed schedules around December 30, weeks before the next president is inaugurated.

The AP’s lawyers late Friday formally asked the State Department to hasten that effort so that the department could provide all Clinton’s minute-by-minute schedules by Oct. 15. The agency did not immediately respond.

    Perhaps the State Department needs a budget increase from Congress to be able to handle printing the daily work schedule of an entire person’s four year tenure in under a year? It must be at least a hundred pages… clearly something that requires the full overtime attentions and expertise of an army of of readers, transcribers, typists, and computer-interfacers. Figure, at a conservative estimate, a billion dollars a page, could we perhaps divert the manpower of an entire Army Division to the task? Surely THAT would be enough, no? If not, should we be considering an increase in income taxes to cover it?

    ::sigh:: A quandary wrapped in a conundrum nestling inside a four-dimensional space-time puzzle.

    – MJM, always amazed by the efficiency of government…

    My God! Is there even one department or agency that is not complicit in the sleazy, illegal activities of Hillary and the rest of the Democrats? What in the hell has happened to our country’s current government? They flaunt the laws with impunity, and if Hillary gets elected, Constitutional rule in the United States of America will no longer exist.
