On anniversary of GOP 'autopsy,' both sides take aim

(CNN) - It's probably not on your calendar but in the political world Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of a symbolically important, self-determined revamp for the Republican Party.

As Republicans march on to the 2014 midterms armed with a plan for success - laid out in a post-election report prescribed from the party's failing in the 2012 - Democrats insist the so-called autopsy has had a negligible effect on transforming the GOP.

RNC questions timing of Clinton document release

(CNN) - The Republican National Committee alleged Friday that previously confidential papers from the Clinton White House were improperly withheld from the public for over a year and requested the National Archives provide its correspondence with the offices of Bill and Hillary Clinton regarding the review and release of the material.

David Powers, the RNC's senior counsel, requested in a letter Friday to the Archives that the agency turn over "any documents, correspondence, and e-mails" it exchanged with representative of the Clintons regarding the "review, consideration, or withholding" of the documents, which he says includes "some communications with Hillary Clinton."
