Government lawyers said on Tuesday that the FBI has found 30 additional emails discussing Benghazi, Libya on Hillary Clinton's homebrewed email server.
Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta Tuesday that an undetermined number of the emails among the 30 were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton. The State Department's lawyer said it would need until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released.
Mehta questioned why it would take so long to release so few documents, and urged that the process be sped up. He ordered the department to report to him in a week with more details about why the review process would take a full month.
Clinton had asserted she only deleted emails from her server that were personal in nature about subjects such as yoga routines and daughter Chelsea's wedding plans.
Tuesday's hearing was just one part of government watchdog Judicial Watch's lawsuits to obtain government records involving Hillary Clinton.
Clinton claimed she turned over more than 30,000 work-related emails to the State Department in December of 2014. Of those 30,000 emails, 296 were related to the Benghazi attack. However, the State Department discovered an addition 925 Benghazi-related emails and turned those over to the House Select Committee on Benghazi.
“Using broad search terms, we have identified a number of documents potentially responsive to a Benghazi-related request. At this time, we have not confirmed that the documents are, in fact, responsive. We also have not determined if they involve Secretary Clinton,” a spokeswoman told The Daily Caller in response to an article about the court filing.
