NCH Questions Government’s Handling of Clinton E-Mails

On March 17, the National Coalition for History and eleven other pro-transparency groups wrote to the Secretary of State and the Archivist of the United States, requesting that they independently verify the preservation of federal records among the emails in electronic form..

The groups wrote, “the task of determining which emails constitute federal records should not be left solely to Mrs. Clinton’s personal aides. Rather, the Archivist and State Department should oversee the process to ensure its independence and objectivity.”

Here is a link to the letter and a list of the signatories.
