The State Department is breaking a judge's order on the number of Hillary Clinton's emails scheduled to be released Thursday, blaming the "holiday schedule" and "large number of documents involved," The Washington Times reports.

Under court order to release a portion of the private-server emails every month from the more than 30,000 emails Clinton turned over from her stint as secretary of state, the department was ordered to dump 4,800 Thursday, the Times reports.

"We have worked diligently to come as close to the goal as possible, but with the large number of documents involved and the holiday schedule we have not met the goal this month," the department said in a statement, the Times reports.

"To narrow that gap, the State Department will make another production of former Secretary Clinton's email sometime next week."

Some 5,500 pages of documents were expected to be released later Thursday, the Times reports, adding it was unclear how many individual emails they represent.

According to the House Select Committee on Benghazi, the panel was already reviewing nearly 2,500 pages of those documents, including emails from Patrick Kennedy.


The final 5,400 Clinton emails are to be released near the end of next month.

Hundreds of the emails Clinton turned over to the State Department contain information that's now been deemed classified; Clinton has said they weren't classified when she sent them.
