Last week, Hillary Clinton‘s staff delivered 55,000 pages of printed-out emails in boxes to the State Department. Clinton asked the department to review and release her files.
The New York Times recently revealed that Clinton used a personal email account during her time as Secretary of State. To some, the use of private email undermines and contradicts transparency guidelines and laws.
A review, now underway, will take “several months,” U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said at a Monday-morning briefing.
The 55,000 pages, which Psaki said “covers the span of [Clinton’s] time at the State Department,” do not include every email in the account, Psaki clarified, only what Clinton herself handed over to the government.
