WASHINGTON (AP) — An Associated Press review of the official calendar Hillary Clinton kept as secretary of state finds at least 75 meetings with longtime political donors, loyalists, Clinton Foundation contributors and corporate and other outside interests that were not recorded or were listed without the names of those she met.

The missing entries raise new questions about how Clinton and her inner circle handled government records documenting her State Department tenure — in this case, why the official chronology of her four-year term doesn’t closely mirror other more detailed records.

No known federal laws were violated and some omissions could be blamed on a highly fluid schedule that sometimes forced late cancellations.

The missing or heavily edited entries included private dinners with political donors and policy sessions with groups of corporate leaders.
