State Department Prepares to Release First Batch of Emails

A circuit court judge has ordered Hillary Clinton to turn in 55,000 documents to the State Department. Those documents include her emails, which will be released in groups. The first group will be released soon.

The initial group of emails have already found their way to the House Select Committee on Benghazi. They are under review for communication concerning the embassy attacks in Libya. An 850-page slice was reviewed by the New York Times.

The internal communications between Hillary and her staff has made it clear that her understanding of the events in Benghazi contradicted the narrative pushed by the White House in the days following the tragedy.

What’s more, Hillary expressed concern the attacks, which led to the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens, would be used by Republicans to criticize the Obama administration’s handling of foreign policy.
