The FBI has recovered 30 Benghazi emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server that were excluded from the original 55,000 documents provided to investigators, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The new emails were discovered among thousands of emails found by the FBI after its recent probe into Clinton's mishandling of classified information in her private server.
“Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta Tuesday that an undetermined number of the emails among the 30 were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton. The State Department's lawyer said it would need until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released,” The Associated Press reported.
This discovery contradicts previous claims from Clinton, who has said that only personal emails were erased from the server.
The State Department could not confirm that the messages were Benghazi-related. John Kirby, a State Department spokesperson said, “Using broad search terms, we have identified approximately 30 documents potentially responsive to a Benghazi-related request. At this time, we have not confirmed that the documents are, in fact, responsive, or whether they are duplicates of materials already provided to the Department by former Secretary Clinton in December 2014,” The Wall Street Journal reported.
Clinton has often found herself in hot water when it comes to the Benghazi massacre, especially throughout the 2016 campaign. Pat Smith, whose son Sean was killed in the Benghazi attacks said she “blames Hillary Clinton personally for the death” of her son.
