I tend to think that if the judge asked the people involved "How do you think you'll like prison?",

things would start appearing.
The State Department said it would take 75 years for the release of emails from top aides to Hillary Clinton while she was serving as secretary of State.

Lawyers said it would take that long to compile the 450,000 pages of records from former Clinton aides Cheryl Mills, Jacob Sullivan and Patrick Kennedy, according to a court filing from last week, which was first reported by CNN.
This is bullshit.  From a clapped-out bull.  And they know we know it.  But they know the chances of this 'Justice' Department actually doing anything about it are just about zero, so they don't care.

It's bullshit, and the court knows that it is bullshit. We handle 500K page productions all the time on the civil side, and the judge knows that we are talking about the exact same kind of production.

The judge won't put up with this. "500 pages a month" equals 25 per business day. That's 15 minutes a page, even counting breaks and banker's hours. That's bullshit for a manual paper review, which this is NOT.

It's only 23 times as long as Clinton and her staff needed to write, read, and act on those e-mails - and whatever additional ones have not been recovered. It's long past time for the judge to be jailing officials and lawyers for contempt of court.
