The Hillary Clinton email affair is giving the State Department a hard time as they announced that they don’t know when the sorting through the hidden messages will be completed.
More and more classified documents, that Hillary Clinton mishandled, keep coming to light.
State Department official said, “At this time, we do not have an estimate for completion of processing all of these documents.”
The State Department completed a review of the roughly 30,000 emails back in February 2016 that Hillary turned over in December 2014, about two years after she left office.
Last summer, the FBI gave the State Department tens of thousands of additional emails from the investigation, which the department continues to process following court orders.
In June this year, the FBI provided about 7,000 additional documents obtained from the laptop computer shared by top Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her husband, Anthony Weiner.
“We have not yet determined how many of these documents are State Department records as opposed to personal emails, nor have we determined how many documents are duplicative of material already in our possession,” said the department official.
The investigation remains to uncover classified information that was stored on the Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
With the latest email release, two more emails contained confidential information in them, which totals 2,083 confidential documents that passed through Clinton’s server.
One email from Dennis Ross was redacted of confidential information regarding an Israeli military assault in November 2012 against Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip.
The conservative group Judicial Watch scored a legal victory last week when District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta ordered the State Department to expand its search for Hillary’s emails related to the terrorist attack on a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya.
Ramona Cotca, Judicial Watch’s senior attorney, said, “It’s not about politics. It’s just about finding the truth as to what happened.”
“It may actually be slower,” Ms. Cotca added.
