(Newser) – Fed up with waiting, a conservative public interest group is suing the National Archives to obtain White House records on Hillary Clinton when she led a health-care task force as first lady. Clinton is catching flak from her Democratic rivals for holding up release of the documents, ABC News reports.

Though former presidents can delay release of White House papers, Judicial Watch has been seeking access to the records since last spring. President Clinton named his wife head of the task force, established to propose an overhaul of national health care policy. The effort failed to muster congressional support.
