The State Department plans to review 55,000 pages of documents Hillary Clinton released to it last December from the personal email account she used as Secretary of State. State Department spokesperson Marie Harf has claimed Hillary Clinton did not discuss classified information using this account. Judicial Watch has pending FOIA litigation against the State Department regarding Hillary Clinton’s emails, including one pertaining to email communications between Clinton and Nagla Mahmoud, the wife of former Egyptian president Muhammad Morsi.

Below is a quote from the article that highlights the impact of this scandal on media organizations that have pending FOIA requests on this matter:
The possible release of Clinton’s emails would come after more than 75 separate requests were filed with the State Department between 2009 and 2013 by media organizations and others. Associated Press requests for Clinton emails and other documents have been delayed for more than a year — and in one case, four years — without any results. The AP said this week it is considering legal action to compel responses.
