“The FBI plans to send more Hillary Clinton-related emails to the State Department to be processed for public release, a government lawyer said Tuesday.
The messages appear to be from a set recovered during a search of a laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin. The planned handover was confirmed by Justice Department attorney Lisa Ann Olson at a brief court hearing in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, but no timetable for State to receive the messages or make them public was discussed.”

Judicial Watch is currently embattled in disagreements with the State Department on the length of time until the emails are released to the organization. The State Department wants five years to process the new Clinton emails. Judicial Watch will continue to fight for the timely release of these emails, and continue the fight for government transparency.
