State Department Stonewall: What Is Senator Feingold Hiding?

This morning Politico reported that the State Department is stonewalling Freedom of Information Act requests related to Senator Feingold’s work for the department until after the election – allowing him to hide just like Hillary Clinton.

34-year career politician Senator Feingold still hasn’t addressed whether he violated federal law by planning his political campaign while still at the State Department. It begs the question – just like Hillary Clinton, what is Senator Feingold hiding?

As Politico and other state and national media are reporting:

It’s already taken 20 months… “Back in February 2015, The NRSC had requested any correspondence between Feingold and three Democratic senators: DSCC Chairman Jon Tester, outgoing Minority Leader Harry Reidand incoming Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer.”

Senator Feingold possibly communicated illegally with his ‘campaign in waiting’… “Later FOIAs requested emails between Feingold and staffers at Progressives United, the PAC he ran before heading to the State Department that served as a campaign-in-waiting, and emails from Feingold’s longtime chief of staff.”

And started planning his rematch while on State Department payroll…“Republicans believe emails between Feingold and Democratic leaders (the NRSC also requested his correspondence with top White House officials) could prove Feingold was planning his rematch against Johnson, who defeated him in 2010, while working at the State Department. Tester told reporters last year he spoke with Feingold about a bid in early January, while other reports indicated Feingold also talked to Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin in the same time frame.”
