The State Department is up to something fishy with John Kerry and a government watchdog group wants answers. The group filed a lawsuit after the department said they would not hand over documents involving presidential climate envoy John Kerry until after the next presidential election in 2024.
Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT), a government watchdog, 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.
