The State Department to turn over nearly 1,000 previously undisclosed Hillary Clinton emails

September 26, 2015

 Yesterday the Associated Press reported that despite Hillary Clinton’s sworn statement she did not in fact turn over all of her work related emails and today The Daily Beast is reporting the State Department has found “a handful” of Benghazi-related emails it “mistakenly” failed to turn over to the committee investigating Benghazi.

  The State Department will hand these emails over to the committee as part of a batch of nearly 1,000 previously unreleased emails related to Libya from Hillary Clinton’s personal email system.

  Here is more:

“Following our second review of former Secretary Clinton’s emails… the Department is producing a small number of emails relating to Benghazi,” the official said. The official could not say precisely how many Benghazi-related Clinton emails the State Department missed in its original review, but characterized it as a “handful.”

The State Department informed the House Select Committee on Benghazi on Friday that it would deliver to them approximately 925 new Hillary Clinton emails relating to Benghazi and Libya, among them a small number of Benghazi-related emails that it had missed.

 These 925 new emails fall into three broad categories:

1. Benghazi-related emails that the State Department missed in its original review;

2. Hillary Clinton emails related to Libya which the State Department assessed not to be directly related to Benghazi. This makes up the vast majority of the 925 emails being released;

3. Benghazi-related emails that the State Department had previously assessed to be of a “personal nature and unrelated to the former Secretary’s official capacity.”

  The first and third categories are the ones I am most interested in but particularly the third; how is it possible for the State Department to mistake a Benghazi-related email for a personal email? That does not pass the common sense test.

  The State Department is making the claim that by releasing emails above and beyond (the second category emails) what is necessary for the investigation it shows the department is trying to cooperate with the committee. Call my cynical but I do not believe for one minute that is why the State Department is going to release these additional emails.

  I think the State Department knows it faces a public relations nightmare if it were to release a handful of Benghazi-related emails the committee has been requesting for years at such a late date in time so this is an attempt to bury the lede to create a more favorable version of this story.

    This (like eveything else) won’t matter one bit to the Lefties…. nothing ever does.

    Color me unimpressed with State’s ‘attempted cooperation.’

      They are only doing what they are allowed to do and what will be able to be “fixed” by the Administration or the Media.

    No surprise. [Foster’s folder keeps coming to mind.] Plus, I think they’re throwing more of the blame on Hilly – keeping Bari clean. He’s more to blame!! But, that underhanded dealing’s going on, probably want Biden in so they can puppeteer him better than they can Hilly – who has some of her own Agenda.

      Example: – “Whose side would Obama take, the communist tyrants running China, or the people they grind under their heels? If you really need to ask, this offers a clue: “Obama Put Up Screen So That Xi Jinping Wouldn’t Have to See Protesters”

        Another think Laura – the polls. The 25th – One poll: Sanders 46%, HillyBilly 30% Biden 14% – same day Fox reports: Hillbilly 44%, Sanders 30% and Biden 18%.

        I don’t trust polls, Zip. I know the owner of a polling firm and I worked for a survey company. I know how these things can be manipulated. 🙂

        Yep, another ‘thing’ that’s untrustworthy. The only thing trustworthy with the ‘shadow people’s agenda & media’ is that it’s NOT trustworthy – it’s consistently opposite of what it appears to be or what they say it is.

        Speaking of opposites, Zips. Ya ever notice that the name of every bill that is passed by Congress means the opposite of what the bill actually does??? 🙂

        It’s like Double Speak. The Native Indian’s use to call them “speak w/ fork tongue”. They write that way too!

      The Clinton’s have a long history with corruption, don’t they? And now Bill is up to his old tricks again, blaming a right wing conspiracy and the media for Hillary’s woes but at some point he needs to look into the mirror and realize that they reason why is because they play very loosely with the rules. Of course he knows that but he cannot admit it…

    It is always the coverup that trips them up. We shall see. It may take years, and another administration, but i am starting to think that this just might have enough legs to hang in there.

      I don’t think this is going away any time soon but at some point I fear people will tire of it and stop paying attention. I think this is really hurting her in the polls because it is getting harder and harder for liberals to defend her, they know this is a real problem even if they do not want to admit it.
