The State Department is refusing to hand over documents on former Secretary of State John Kerry until after the next presidential election in 2024.
A government watchdog group is demanding to see files on Democrat President Joe Biden’s climate envoy, but the federal department is rejecting the requests.
The group, Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT), filed a lawsuit after the department said they would not hand over documents involving Kerry until after the 2024 election.
PPT filed a lawsuit against the State Department on Wednesday after the department gave the date of November 18, 2024, to fulfill the group’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request on Kerry’s office.
PPT director Michael Chamberlain said: “The Biden Administration promised to be the most transparent ever.
“But when the State Department is asked for records about John Kerry’s office – whose work touches on energy prices, international relations, many of the issues the American public cares about right now – they refuse to commit to anything until after the next presidential election.”
