WASHINGTON — The State Department has agreed to turn over all the detailed planning schedules from Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state to The Associated Press by mid-October. It is an abrupt reversal from U.S. government lawyers’ warning last week that hundreds of pages would not be released until after the presidential election.
The minute-by-minute schedules offer a detailed look at Clinton’s daily routine during her four-year tenure as secretary of state between 2009 and 2013.
The department has so far released about half of her more complete daily schedules. The new agreement announced Thursday was drawn up after government lawyers told the AP last week that the department expected to release the last of the detailed daily schedules around Dec. 30, weeks after the election. The AP objected to that.
