The State Department released another 1,500 Hillary Clinton emails, as the agency races toward a Monday deadline for making public all documents that can be released from the former secretary of state's private server.

The agency also turned over 1,600 documents to the special House committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans — coming about four months after Clinton testified before the panel on the assaults, Politico reports.

"We take our obligations to the court seriously and are making every effort to comply with this order," agency spokesman Mark Toner said on Friday. "We do intend, in that spirit, to make a final production on Monday.

"We’re still reviewing some of these emails – a lot of them, frankly," Toner added. "We’re going to be working hard through the weekend."

No highly classified documents were in the latest release, though 88 emails or attachments were designated as "confidential" — the lowest tier of classification, Politico reports.

So far, the State Department has released about 1,840 "classified" documents from the server — including 22 "top secret" and 21 "secret."

None were marked as classified when they were first sent, according to the report.

The expected Monday release comes just before Super Tuesday, when voters in 12 states will make their choices known in primaries or caucuses.

The latest emails were from the Office of the Secretary, including documents from Clinton’s chief of staff Cheryl Mills, and deputy chiefs of staff Jake Sullivan and Huma Abedin — among others.

They spanned topics ranging from the Arab Spring to Wikileaks to difficulties in trying to get the White House to make key appointments, Politico reports.
