Only one of the 14,900 newly discovered Hillary Clinton emails referenced Benghazi, and it merely praised the secretary of state, CNN reports.

The State Department originally said as many as 30 emails might be related to Benghazi, but it told a federal court Wednesday all but one had been previously released, according to the report.

"In response to a Benghazi-related FOIA request, after completing its review of the set of documents previously identified as potentially responsive, State has determined that there is one responsive document that is not a duplicate of the documents provided by former Secretary Clinton in December 2014 and that had not been previously provided to Judicial Watch in this case," State Department spokesman Mark Toner said in a statement.

The new one reportedly was a note from former U.S. ambassador Tom Shannon, who praised Mrs. Clinton in the 2013 Senate hearing on Benghazi.

"Please extend to the Secretary my congratulations for her testimony today before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee," Shannon wrote, per CNN. "I watched with great admiration as she dealt with a tough and personally painful issue in a fair, candid, and determined manner."

Conservative Group Judicial Watch, led by President Tom Fitton, filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, requesting that information from the emails be released and the State Department responded Wednesday.
