2,000 Clinton Emails Released

2,000 Clinton Emails Released

The US State Department released nearly 2,000 emails from Hillary Clinton’s time as top US diplomat late on Tuesday, following orders from a federal judge.
The large tranche of emails, mainly from 2009, was made public on the State Department’s Freedom of Information Act website, AFP reported.
At first glance, the 3,000-some pages of exchanges contain schedules, communications with staffers and advisor Sidney Blumenthal, cables about China and concern over Libya’s former autocrat Muammar Gaddafi’s 2009 US stay.
Clinton’s electronic correspondence has been the focus of controversy since her admission in March that she had used a private account for all her email correspondence while secretary of state between 2009 and 2013.
Republican rivals contend that Clinton, frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, used the private account in order to keep it out of the public record.
But she has argued that as of late 2014, she had sent 55,000 printed pages from roughly 30,000 emails to officials who will archive the data and make it available to the public, as is required by law.
The remainder of the messages was deemed personal by Clinton and was deleted from her private server, she and her lawyers have said.
The State Department announced it intended to make the entirety of the archive public after purging it of classified or confidential information.
