Hillary Clinton was accused of violating federal law by storing e-mails on her private server while she was secretary of state, in a new lawsuit that seeks to have messages she sent turned over to the national archives.  The nonprofit group Cause of Action asked a judge in Washington to rule the presidential contender broke the Federal Records Act. Clinton failed to ask the National Archives and Records Administration for permission to use her own server to send government-related e-mail, the group claimed.  Clinton also didn’t turn over some e-mails as required under an earlier court ruling, according to the complaint. The State Department was ordered to begin releasing some of her correspondence in batches starting June 30.  The new claim, filed against U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and the head of the National Archives, seeks to force a government lawsuit to recover all of Clinton’s e-mail. Clinton, 67, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for U.S. president, isn’t named as a defendant.  “As Clinton knew or should have known, the Federal Records Act did not authorize her to set up her own record keeping system or to maintain e-mails on a personal server or use a private e-mail account without ensuring that the e-mails were concurrently archived in the State Department’s official record keeping system,” the group said in its complaint.  Pooja Jhunjhunwala, a press officer with the State Department, declined to comment on the suit. Neither a Clinton campaign spokesman, Jesse Ferguson, nor the organization’s media relations department, immediately replied to e-mailed requests for comment on the filing.
