State Dept. to review 29,000 pages of Clinton aide's emails
WASHINGTON - The State Department has agreed to review 29,000 pages of emails from a close aide to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, from their days at the State Department for possible public release under a new legal agreement with a conservative legal group. But many of the emails from aide Huma Abedin would not be publicly released until six months after the election.
Lawyers for the State Department and the conservative group Judicial Watch agreed Monday that the agency will start in March a lengthy review and release of thousands of emails that Abedin sent or received on Clinton's private computer server between 2009 and 2013.
Abedin was deputy chief of staff for Clinton during Clinton's tenure as secretary of state and is now vice chair of Clinton's 2016 campaign.
