The State Department has told a federal court that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has turned over all her work-repeated emails, but the conservative group Judicial Watch charged Monday the assertion "raises more questions than it answers."

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan ordered Clinton along with aides Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin on July 31 to state under penalty of perjury that they've produced all government records in their possession, Judicial Watch states in a news release.

And according to Judicial Watch which as part of a freedom of information lawsuit is seeking records about the employment of Abedin Clinton signed a declaration Saturday that 55,000 pages of emails were produced to the department Dec. 5, 2014. Further, it states, Mills didn't have an account on clintonmail.com, though Abedin did.

"Clinton's declaration fails to comply with both Judge Sullivan’s court order and the State Department’s request," Judicial Watch charged in a news release Monday. "Mrs. Clinton does not certify she turned over all federal records and provides no information on the extent that Abedin and Mills used her server."

Meanwhile, Mills, who was Clinton's chief of staff at the State Department, had reportedly planned to delete her email correspondence, according to a letter her lawyers wrote to Sullivan, The New York Observer has reported.

"Ms. Mills does not believe that she has paper copies of potential records in her possession," the letter reportedly says.

"Following our production on August 10, 2015 [of the defense counsel’s version of the electronic records], we have instructed her to delete any and all electronic records in her possession."

On Friday, Sullivan quickly issued a ruling Friday directing the government "to request that Mrs. Hillary Clinton, Ms. Huma Abedin, and Ms. Cheryl Mills i) not delete any federal documents, electronic or otherwise, in their possession or control, and ii) provide appropriate assurances to the Government that the above-named individuals will not delete any such documents," Judicial Watch reports.

He also asked for a status report Wednesday.

"Mrs. Clinton’s doesn’t want to tell the whole truth about her email system," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a statement Monday.

"I’m sure the court will have more questions for her. This declaration raises more questions than it answers and shows contempt for the court. We will be seeking appropriate relief with the court."
