When former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton turned over her emails from her private server to the State Department, she claimed she had deleted more than 30,000 emails that she and her staff deemed personal and not work-related.
But it looks like an ongoing FBI investigation may reveal otherwise.
Bloomberg News first broke the story that sources in the FBI say they’ve uncovered both personal and work-related emails that Clinton tried to delete.
This suggests Clinton may not have been telling the truth, again, about what was on her email servers.
And according to a report from Fox News, the Clinton campaign is in the dark about what the FBI has found, a very scary position for the Clinton campaign.
Should there be more classified information on these recovered emails, which Clinton declined to share with the State Department, that could mean big-time legal trouble.
As for the emails previously turned into the State Department, a federal judge on Tuesday ordered the agency to stop dragging its feet.
U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan gave the department until the end of next week to complete a keyword search of thousands of work-related messages sent or received from private email accounts by aides Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills. Mills was Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department, while Abedin was her deputy chief and considered to be among her most trusted confidantes.
The department had sought weeks longer to complete the task.
Once the keyword search is complete, staffers with the required security clearances must still conduct a line-by-line review to see if the emails contain confidential information before they can be publicly released.
Sullivan set an Oct. 5 deadline for the department to report back to him on how long it will take to complete the review.
