The FBI filed a second, secret declaration in US District Court in Washington, DC on Monday night describing its search for documents related to the bureau's probe of Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.
The declaration, which came on the eve of major Democratic primary contests in California, New Jersey, and four other states, was submitted in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the bureau by VICE News seeking the contents of the Clinton's email server and the FBI's correspondence with the State Department. It contains "additional details" about the ongoing investigation, according to a court filing submitted to US District Court Judge Randolph Moss.
The details of the court filing pertain, in part, to the bureau's search for documents about Clinton's server and how the public release of the records could harm the FBI's investigation, Justice Department lawyers wrote, seeking dismissal of VICE News' lawsuit.
"These details supplement defendant's showing that it conducted a reasonable search, but cannot be disclosed on the public record without compromising information that the FBI seeks to protect," the filing said.
