Hillary Clinton Campaign to Release Emails to Justice Department
Published at | Updated at
(WASHINGTON) — Hillary Clinton has directed her staff to give the Department of Justice the private email server that she used during her tenure as Secretary of State, a spokesman said.
Clinton’s team has also turned over a thumb drive containing emails that has already provided to the state department, according to a campaign official.
The move comes amid a federal investigation into the security of the server and whether there was classified information in the emails.
The State Department is in the process of reviewing and releasing some 55,000 emails that were sent during Clinton’s time at the state department.
“She pledged to cooperate with the Government’s security inquiry, and if there are more questions, we will continue to address them,” the statement said.
Campaign officials said they were still negotiating turning over the server.
A Clinton campaign official said the camp believes there are no state department emails on the server and all of the emails on the thumb drive have already been turned over.
The official also said that the inquiry was regarding the security of the server, not the content of the emails.
The camp maintains that Clinton did not send any emails that were classified or contained classified information at the time she sent them.
