The Obama administration filed a motion in federal court on Thursday seeking a 27-month delay in producing emails between Hillary Clinton and her former State Department aides.

U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras had ordered the State Department to produce the emails sought in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit brought by Citizens United by July 21.
“The group Citizens United sued the State Department last year, seeking access to emails sent by four former Clinton aides: Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, Melanee Verveer and Michael Fuchs. The suit seeks access to emails regarding the Clinton Foundation and a firm with close ties to the Clintons, Teneo Consulting,” United Press International reported.
