Thousands of New Clinton Emails Being Released
More than 6,000 pages of new Hillary Clinton emails are set to be published by the State Department Wednesday, the latest installment in a prolonged disclosure process that has proved to be painful for Clinton’s presidential campaign by focusing attention on her decision to use a private email account and server to conduct her official business as secretary of state.
The newest set of emails are expected to be largely from late 2010 and early 2011, with State keeping to its prior practice of releasing emails from Clinton’s account in rough chronological order. Among the topics expected to be covered in the new batch: the Arab Spring democracy movement, the build-up to NATO intervention in Libya and the disclosure of tens of thousands of classified diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks.
However, these new messages are unlikely to shed light on the aspects of the email mess that have been most politically problematic, such as Clinton’s decision to delete about 30,000 emails when she returned roughly 32,000 others to State last December. Clinton has said she did that after her lawyers determined the messages to be erased were entirely personal in nature.
