The US Department of State will release Hillary Clinton's emails recovered by the FBI during an investigation into the use of her private server.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US Department of State has agreed to release the emails of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recovered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) during the criminal investigation into the use of her private server, the US watchdog group Judicial Watch reported on Tuesday.

"State [Department] has voluntarily agreed to produce non-exempt agency records responsive to plaintiff’s FOIA [Freedom of Information Act] request contained in the information transmitted," the release stated.

FBI Applies Double Standards to Clinton, DNC Email Probes
In July, the FBI completed its criminal investigation of Clinton’s use of a private email server and account during her tenure as secretary of state. FBI Director James Comey noted that Clinton has been extremely reckless in managing highly sensitive government information and has shared through the unprotected server tens of classified emails.

The agency returned thousands of uncovered emails to the State Department for safe-keeping.

In 2014, Clinton turned more than 55,000 emails to State Department investigators, claiming the documents represented all work-related emails from her private server. However, she destroyed, rather than handed over, more than 33,000 emails contrary to established rules and regulations.
