State Dept. Release Reveals 64 More 'Confidential' Clinton Emails

Friday, 19 February 2016 10:08 PM

The State Department has released 562 more documents from the private email server Hillary Clinton used as secretary of state in the latest data dump that's dogged the Democratic presidential contender through much of her campaign.

The 1,116 pages made public Friday bring the total page count of released Clinton emails to 46,946.

The release comes a day before Nevada's Democratic caucus, while South Carolina's Democratic primary election falls on Feb. 27. The department aims to release the final batch Feb. 29 – a day before "Super Tuesday," when a dozen primary elections will be held.

According to the State Department, portions of 64 of the newly released documents were upgraded to the "confidential" level, although none of the information was classified at the time the emails were sent. None were upgraded to "secret" or "top secret."

There are now more than 1,700 Clinton emails that've been classified, The Hill reports.

The release comes after a federal judge earlier this month accused the department of dragging its feet.

“We take our obligations to the court very seriously and are making every effort to comply with this order,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Friday, The Hill reports.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, however, said the release is "yet another reminder of just how recklessly she handled classified material and jeopardized national security," The Hill reports.

An FBI investigation of Clinton's use of the private email account is continuing.
