The State Department will publish Hillary Clinton’s emails online after it spends “several months” reviewing them.
Speaking to MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts before Clinton addressed her private email scandal at the United Nations on Tuesday, State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki added that 900 pages of emails that have already been given to the House Select Benghazi Committee will be made available first before the rest of the emails are released after they have been reviewed for potential redactions.
In an earlier briefing with reporters, Psaki reportedly downplayed a Bloomberg News report that found that the State Department’s review of Clinton’s emails will cost taxpayers millions.
After being asked by the State Department to do so, Clinton turned over 55,000 pages–not 55,000 emails–to the State Department last October.
Clinton has come under fire for exclusively using a private email account–and her own server–to conduct official business while she was Secretary of State, which went against State Department guidelines and federal laws and regulations.
