The State Department released 6,300 pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails Wednesday afternoon, a move that will provide more insight into Clinton’s four-year tenure as secretary of State but is unlikely to provide any bombshells.
The new trove of emails—the fifth such release from State—focuses largely on missives from 2010 and 2011, the State Department said.
Clinton turned over more than 55,000 pages of emails to the State Department back in December 2014. Her use of a private email address, hosted on a private server at the Clintons’ Chappaqua, N.Y., home, came to light in a New York Times report in March.
The staggered release of the emails—several thousand at the end of each month, through January of 2016—has become what Clinton herself called a “drip, drip, drip” of stories and information that’s proven harmful to her campaign. With the sustained bad headlines over her email practices, Clinton has seen her favorability rating and trustworthiness drop, and Vermont. Sen. Bernie Sanders has quickly gained on her in national and state-level polling.
The biggest news from Wednesday’s email release is that it included more than 200 additional emails with classified material—more than doubling the total number of emails released thus far that included classified information. Clinton and her campaign have argued that classified information is an inter-agency issue and that the information that is now classified wasn’t classified at the time it was sent.
