U.S. District Judge William Dimitrouleas ruled that the State Department must release emails related to the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, by Sept. 13. That means even more potentially embarrassing information will dribble out weeks before the election, when American voters will be most engaged.
The material was included in almost 15,000 emails that the FBI reported this week had been recovered from files that Clinton deleted. The judge ordered the State Department to review the documents and identify those covered by the Freedom of Information Act request. The State Department must file a status report by Sept. 6 and turn over the documents a week later.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, whose organization sued for the records, criticized Clinton for trying to erase the material.
“It is astonishing that Hillary Clinton tried to delete and hide Benghazi emails and documents,” he said in a prepared statement. “No wonder federal courts in Florida and [Washington] D.C. are ordering the State Department to stop stalling and begin releasing the 14,900 new Clinton emails.”
