    US federal judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly has ordered the release of documents related to Hillary Clinton’s use of an iPhone and iPad during her tenure as the Secretary of State, advocacy group Judicial Watch said in a press release.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The advocacy group noted that the US State Department had no objections to releasing documents beginning in August.

    “A federal judge has ordered the State Department to begin releasing documents by August 2015 regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s requests for use of an iPad and iPhone,” Judicial Watch said on Tuesday.

    However, the judge denied the State Department’s request to set the final document production date in January 2016.

    Clinton found herself in the middle of a controversy after The New York Times reported in March 2015 that she used a personal e-mail address for official business while serving as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.

    On March 10, 2015, Clinton explained her decision to use a personal email account for official business by convenience. She argued it enabled her to use only one device to check messages, but added that she has regretted her decision.

    Media reports had unveiled at the end of March that Clinton used an iPad to e-mail her staff members, which contradicted her previous statements.
