Just weeks before the November election, the State Department may be required to release 15,000 documents discovered during the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
A federal judge urged the State Department to review the documents and release them at a hearing Monday, CBS News reports.
The emails in question were sent or received by Clinton during her time as secretary of state and were not among the 55,000 documents handed over by her lawyers.
The conservative watchdog Judicial Watch is seeking the records under the Freedom of Information Act.
The State Department is reviewing the emails to determine which are private and which are personal before release them.
