Questions remain about the availability of important communications from Mike Bloomberg’s tenure as New York City mayor.

The Daily News had reported in 2016 that Bloomberg’s emails from 12 years as mayor remained unavailable for public inspection. The Washington Free Beacon made a new effort to update the availability of the email during Bloomberg’s days as mayor.

The Free Beacon reported Tuesday that officials at the city’s archives initially acknowledged the its requests about the email issue.  However, they later stopped responding.

The Free Beacon noted that Bloomberg had relied almost exclusively on his own private email address and server when he was mayor. And the Daily News reported there was no law preventing elected officials from doing so.

The Daily News said access to Bloomberg’s emails could be sought by filing a request under the state’s Freedom of Information Law. But the process usually takes months and without any public records, it is difficult to know what to request.

Bloomberg is deciding whether to run for president in 2020. The Free Beacon said efforts to reach his spokesperson about the emails were unsuccessful.
