As the State Department begins releasing Hillary Clinton's emails, the Democratic presidential candidate says the information they contained during her time as Secretary of State was handled appropriately. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Hillary Clinton says she's glad her emails are starting to be released to the public. Speaking to reporters at a campaign event in New Hampshire, the former Secretary of State said, "I've said from the very beginning, I want them to release all of them as soon as possible." The State Department on Friday (May 22) posted on its website a set of former Secretary Hillary Clinton's emails that were related to a 2012 attack on a U.S. facility in Benghazi, Libya. The department is reviewing additional Clinton emails for later release. It said the Web address for the first batch of emails was: http://foia.state.gov/search/results.aspx?collection=clinton_email. The site appeared to be loading slowly for many users, according to numerous posts by reporters on Twitter. Also on Friday, the White House said the FBI had determined material in Clinton's emails that was once unclassified needed to be classified on later review and said such a decision was not uncommon. "I'm aware the FBI has asked that a portion of one email be held back, that happens in the process of Freedom of Information Act responses, but that doesn't change the fact that all of the information in the emails was handled appropriately," Clinton said.
