Government watchdog group Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit to obtain information and documents from Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry’s office that have been hidden from public view.
Judicial Watch’s lawsuit, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia last month, alleges that the State Department has blocked the group from obtaining basic information about the internal operations of Kerry’s office in violation of the Freedom of Information Act. The 1967 law requires the federal government to disclose information and documents upon request.
“The American people have a right to know what John Kerry is up to, what we’re paying to fly him around the world, and who we pay to actually work for him,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement shared with Fox News Digital.
According to court filings, Judicial Watch sent an information request to the State Department in late July. The group asked for copies of records related to Kerry’s travel costs, an entire catalog of Kerry’s calendar entries and copies of all organizational charts for Kerry’s office identifying the staffers who have been hired at the office.
