U.S. District Court Judge for the District of Columbia Rudolph Contreras asked the State Department to file a notice that would include a proposed deadline for the release of Hillary Clinton’s emails, as well as a new proposal for a schedule that involves releasing documents on a rolling basis.
A lawyer for journalist Jason Leopold, who has filed a Freedom of Information Act request seeking all the emails Clinton turned over from her private server, told the judge he wanted the Benghazi emails “produced immediately” and requested that the other emails — some 55,000 pages — be released on a rolling basis. He also asked for periodic updates on the production.
The government had stated in their filings to the court that it would complete a review of thousands of pages of by Jan. 15, 2016, according to papers in an ongoing Freedom of Information lawsuit, suggesting that the full release of documents wouldn’t come out until next year.
