Court orders State to hand over new Clinton emails by Sept. 13

Court orders State to hand over new Clinton emails by Sept. 13, Washington ExaminerAnna Giaritelli, August 25, 2016

A federal court has ordered the State Department to review and turn over emails from a new batch of communications that Hillary Clinton sent during her time as secretary of state by Sept. 13, but which she deleted, Judicial Watch announced Thursday afternoon

“The State Department shall search the material, determine whether any responsive records exist, and complete its first production of non-exempt records, to the extent any exist, by September 13, 2016,” the court ruled.

Judicial Watch said the department has admitted in a court filing that some of the emails that Clinton had deleted included some “Benghazi-related documents.”

That case involves emails between Clinton and the White House in the week after the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans.

Judicial Watch is also pursuing another case that involves a separate batch of Clinton emails. Those emails will start being delivered to the group on Sept. 30, and the court said Thursday that it would hold a hearing on Aug. 30 on whether State should make it known sooner how many documents are involved.
