We can’t read Hillary Clinton’s emails about global trade until after the election
Share Now on:
You know how during negotiations for the Trans Pacific Partnership — the big trade deal the Obama Administration’s trying to get through Congress — one of the big complaints from would-be opponents was that they weren’t being allowed to read the thing as it was being negotiated?
There’s something else people won’t be able to read for a while: Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails about it.
We learned today the State Department has blocked release of those emails, until the end of November.
As always, timing is everything.
Correction: A previous version of this story misstated when the emails would be released. The text has been corrected.
