A top House Republican is accusing Hillary Clinton of making a "mess" of records management at the State Department that has frustrated requests for information from Congress, the media and the public.

Congressman Jason Chaffetz of Utah chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and said at a hearing Thursday that Clinton "conveniently created" a chaotic system that is costing millions of dollars to repair.

Chaffetz pointed out that The Associated Press had to go to court to try to obtain detailed planning schedules from Clinton's four-year tenure as secretary of state.

Patrick Kennedy is undersecretary of state for management. Kennedy says the agency is improving its records management but continues to struggle with the heavy volume of open-records requests that it gets.
