Trump calls on Clinton to release State schedule

The Donald Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee are calling on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to have all of her daily schedules as secretary of state released before Election Day, after the State Department said Friday it cannot comply with the court-ordered release until after voting.

Donald Trump Calls on Hillary Clinton To Release State Schedule
The Associated Press reported earlier this week, after analyzing schedules released so far, that more than half the people outside the government who met or spoke by telephone with Clinton while she was secretary of state had given money -- either personally or through companies or groups -- to the Clinton Foundation.

“It is unacceptable that the State Department is now refusing to release her official schedule before the election in full,” Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller said after the agency told AP lawyers late Friday that the last of the detailed schedules won’t be release until around Dec. 30.

“Voters deserve to know the truth before they cast their ballots,” Miller continued. “Hillary Clinton should immediately demand that these public records be released before voting begins.”

The State Department has so far released about half of the schedules -- seven months after a federal judge ordered the agency to begin releasing monthly batches of Clinton’s detailed daily schedules, which show with whom she had meetings.

"Hillary Clinton needs to end the stonewalling and either call for their release or release them herself," Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Friday in a statement. "Failure to exercise transparency will just further prove she isn't concerned with telling voters the truth about her unethical behavior, a pattern that will continue if she is elected president."

According to Foxnews, Clinton said she met with people outside government regardless of whether they gave money or charitable commitments to her family's charity.

"These are people I would be proud to meet with, as any secretary of state would have been proud to meet with, to hear about their work and their insights," Clinton said this week on CNN.

With the foundation drawing continued attention, Clinton promised Friday to put in place additional safeguards to prevent conflicts of interest with the charity should she win the White House.

The foundation issue, along with continued focus on her use of a private email server, has dogged Clinton politically throughout the week, drawing strong criticism from opponent Donald Trump.

Former President U.S.A and Husband of Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton said last week that if she is elected president, the foundation will no longer accept foreign or corporate donations.

More details coming soon.
