Skip to comments.FBI finds up to 30 deleted Benghazi emails Clinton did not turn over [30 August 2016]

Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta today that some of the 30 recovered emails relating to Benghazi they didnt say now many were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton. The State Departments lawyer also told the judge that the Department needs until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released.
Judge Mehta was skeptical. He questioned why it would take so long to release so few documents, urged that the process be expedited, and ordered the department to report to him in a week with more details about why the review process would take a full month.
As AP points out, Clinton previously has claimed that she withheld and deleted only personal emails not related to her duties as Secretary of State. Clearly, though, any and all Benghazi-related emails related to those duties.
If it turns out that some of the newly recovered emails contain new content, as opposed to just duplicating previously turned over material, Hillary will be caught in yet another lie this one relating to Benghazi, an area of particular vulnerability.
In addition, its possible that the recovered emails contain incriminating information about Clintons handling of Benghazi and/or the truthfulness of her public comments about the debacle. Such emails are just the ones Team Clinton would have the greatest incentive to destroy.
Heres where the issue of redaction may be important. As Judge Mehta told the government, redacting 30 or fewer emails should be a simple task one that does not require a month to accomplish. However, redacting them artfully enough to prevent damage to Hillary Clinton is a bit more complicated, if it comes to that.

FBI recovered 30 new Clinton emails related to Benghazi, State Department says
Ben Ghazi’s yoga exercises.
I’m sure more than 30 of her emails were found on the computer in Weiner’s home.
This posted item is OVER TWO MONTHS OLD!
This is 2-3 days old. How did we miss it?
She can't claim the Russians hacked them.
Oh. And she asked Comey to release everything. Words came out of her own mouth, and were broadcast around the world.
Wonder how much booze Hillary will need to sleep tonight?
The faucet is no longer dripping.
It's from the 30th of August, NOT the 30th of October.
Maybe she was running Chelsea’a wedding dress options by Amb. Stevens.
AUGUST 30th, not OCTOBER 30th.
Anonymous probably has them unredacted and will release them tomorrow maybe? That would be soooo rightous!
It’s dated AUGUST 30, 2016. This is NOT related to the Wiener emails.
Oops. Old stuff. Not that it isn’t important, though
THIS IS SPINNING OUT OF CONTROL !!
I noticed that Judge Mehta is a 2014 Obama appointee. IF indeed the FBI can bypass the DOJ, this would be the judge they would have to go to. I think.
