Archives to release Clinton's first lady schedules

 The National Archives will release Hillary Clinton's schedules while first lady.

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Over 11,000 pages of Hillary Clinton's schedule as first lady are set to be released to the public on Wednesday, the National Archives announced.

The documents are among those the Obama campaign has long said need to be made public in order to fully evaluate the New York senator's experience and tenure while First Lady.

In a statement Tuesday, the Archives said the documents are from the files of Patti Solis Doyle, the director of Clinton's scheduling while she was first lady, and later the manager of her presidential campaign. Doyle stepped down from managing the campaign earlier this year after a string of poor showings in primary contests.

“Arranged chronologically, these records document in detail the activities of the First Lady, including meetings, trips, speaking engagements and social activities for the eight years of the Clinton Administration,” the statement said.

The documents are among those that were the center of a legal battle between the Archives and Judicial Watch, a conservative public interest group that has long urged a speedier release of files from the Clinton White House years.

In a court motion earlier this month, the Archives promised to release the schedules by the end of the month, but said it will need "one to two years" to process remaining documents, including over 20,000 pages of call logs - an indication those documents won't be released by the November 4 presidential election.

According to the Archives statement, 4,746 of the schedules have redactions, information removed before being released, that largely relate to privacy concerns and include "social security numbers, telephone numbers, and home addresses."

The documents will be available for view on the Clinton Library's Web site.

    Obama supporters saying he wasn't in the church when Rev. Wright spoke those words is the equivalent of the Hillary supporters who believe her bull that she didn't know about Monica Lewinsky, Paula Jones, Jennifer Florers, etc.

    I am encouraged that Judicial Watch was able to successfully sue for release of her records. Now, I wish that someone would sue for release of the earmarks, particulary as they relate to possible incentive for endorsements of her presidential campaign. Voters need to know if taxpayer dollars were spent to get key endorsements.

    Her phone logs won't be released so we won't know who called her to confirm VInce Foster's death or that Maggie Williams was successful in removing all the Clinton files from his office.

    Well well welll, how can we trust what's going to be in those documents with all the redactions and editing, cut and paste, embellishing of stories, events and all.
    Next are going to be the tax returns... without editing if possible.
