Clinton Presidential Library Releases Previously Private Documents

Hear an interview about the document release with Politico White House editor Dan Berman.

The Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock released a first batch of previously private documents Friday, providing insight into the operations of the Clinton White House.

Under the Presidential Records Act, such documents can be withheld for up to 12 years after a president leaves office.  These documents could have been made available at the start of 2013, and there was some pressure for them to finally be made public.

Subsequent document releases are expected in the coming weeks.

What's unique about this compared to releases from other presidential administrations is that it provides behind the scenes information about a future potential presidential candidate, as Hillary Clinton considers her own run for the White House.

KUAR spoke with Politico White House Editor Dan Berman about the release.  You can hear the interview above.
