Another Hillary Benghazi Email Dump Is Happening Today, on New Year’s Eve
The State Department is set to release thousands more pages of Hillary Clinton emails today. On New Year’s Eve.
The House Select Committee on Benghazi tweeted earlier today that they received thousands of pages of new emails from the State Department today:
Staff is currently reviewing nearly 2,500 new pages of documents received from State Dept this morning, including Patrick Kennedy’s emails.

And according to CNN, the State Department released fewer of Hillary Clinton‘s emails than were required this month. They said in a statement, “We have worked diligently to come as close to the goal as possible, but with the large number of documents involved and the holiday schedule we have not met the goal this month.”
The State Department was apparently supposed to release 8,000 emails today. They’re releasing a few thousand fewer.
State is complying with a judge’s order for a rolling release (that started months ago) of Clinton’s emails. The State Department had said back in May it might need ’till January to start releasing emails.
The last big Benghazi email document dump, it should be noted, was on Christmas Eve.
