Watch Jason Leopold learn the results of his Hillary Clinton FOIA lawsuit

In January 2015, VICE News filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit demanding that the US State Department release all of the emails Hillary Clinton sent and received during her tenure as secretary of state. As a result, the government released 30,000 emails — but it also withheld at least 22. This was because they reportedly contained Top Secret information.

Today, the result of our FOIA request is in. And reporter Jason Leopold is going to share it with you live.

Ex-CIA Officer Tries to Clear Her Name (Extra Scene from ‘The Italian Job’)

Watch Full Length – http://bit.ly/1Pttu3c

Sabrina De Sousa is one of nearly two-dozen CIA officers who was prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced by Italian courts in absentia in 2009 for the role she allegedly played in the rendition of a radical cleric named Abu Omar. It was the first and only criminal prosecution that has ever taken place related to the CIA’s rendition program, which involved more than 100 suspected terrorists and the assistance of dozens of European countries.

But De Sousa, a dual US and Portuguese citizen, said she had nothing to do with the cleric’s abduction and has been wrongly accused. For the past decade, she has been on a global quest to clear her name. VICE News met up with De Sousa in Lisbon, Portugal–and other key figures connected to the case–for an exclusive interview about the steps she’s now taking in an effort to hold the CIA accountable for one of the most notorious counterterrorism operations in the history of the agency.

In this extra scene, Sabrina De Sousa explains how she’s used the Freedom of Information Act to help further her defense.

VICE News’ ‘FOIA Terrorist’ Jason Leopold Testifies Before Congress

VICE News investigative journalist Jason Leopold has used the Freedom of Information Act to break stories on hot-button issues. He was asked to testify before the House Committee on Government Oversight and Reform to discuss the law’s dire need of reform and problems with compliance.

The two-day hearing included testimonies from five journalists, five members of transparency organizations, and FOIA officials from the IRS, Departments of Justice, State, Homeland Security, and Treasury. Several members of the Oversight Committee, including Chairman Jason Chaffetz, said they will draw up the testimony to improve a FOIA reform bill making its way through Congress.
