WASHINGTON (Reuters) –

The Republican National Committee filed a lawsuit on Wednesday to obtain the records of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during and after her tenure as top U.S. diplomat.

The lawsuit, filed under the Freedom of Information Act, said the information sought “bears directly on her qualifications for president.”

It seeks disclosure of records exchanged between a dozen State Department officials and people using e-mail accounts from designated domain names affiliated with Clinton, including HillaryClinton.com and ClintonFoundation.org.
