The State Department said Monday that they will be releasing a portion of 14,900 Hillary Clinton emails discovered by the FBI in the course of their investigation into her use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state.
Although the agency has not yet determined how many the nearly 15,000 emails are new or are in fact work-related, as the Deputy Spokesperson for the Department said today, “that’s a healthy number there. So there’s likely to be quite a few.”
The selection of the 14,900 emails now being released were not part of the close to 30,000 emails — over 52,000 pages — turned over by Clinton’s lawyers in 2014 and released by the State Department in weekly and monthly installments for almost a year.
Many of the email exchanges are between Abedin and then top Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band. One such exchange from May 2009 shows Band asking for Abedin’s help in procuring a quick visa interview for a British citizen with a criminal charge.
