Hillary is running, but she is also hiding

Hillary is running, but she is also hiding: The International Business Times requested copies last year of all correspondence between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aides about the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a controversial trade agreement that she once wholeheartedly supported but has since, for political reasons, disowned. As the Times describes it, the request was designed to provide a comprehensive view of how involved Clinton and her top aides were in shaping the trade agreement, and whether her agency had a hand in crafting any particular provisions. President Obama's officials originally promised to produce these documents by April this year. But not very surprisingly, it has suddenly decided to keep them under wraps until late November, 489 days after the newspaper's request and a couple of weeks after the general election.
