Yesterday we reported that the State Department wouldn’t be releasing a certain batch of Hillary’s emails until after the presidential election. It seems like an obvious ploy to protect Hillary from any damage they may cause ahead of Election Day – as they previously estimated all of the emails in question would be released by April of this year. Clearly that didn’t happen.
This particular batch of emails in question pertains to her correspondence regarding the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). She’s spoken against it on the campaign trail, yet promoted it as secretary of state. No doubt some more flip-flopping (or just plain lying) would be uncovered in those emails.
And here’s the best part. As the Daily Caller noted, we’re told we’ll see those emails released to the public on a date that doesn’t even exist.
After that deadline flew by with no emails in sight, the Department updated its prediction, saying the emails wouldn’t be available until an estimated date of Nov. 31, 2016.
Besides shifting the email release date to after November’s presidential election, that date stands out for another reason: Nov. 31 doesn’t exist.
It’s not the first time there’s been a November dating goof in Washington. In 2002, the U.S. Capitol Historical Society printed over 650,000 calendars that mistakenly gave November a 31st day, which in turn threw off the entire month of December.
