    The whistleblowing website has published a treasure trove archive of 1,258 of the former Secretary of State's emails, Washington political newspaper The Hill reported.

    Last month, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange told the UK's ITV that the website had collected sufficient evidence for the FBI to indict Clinton. "We could proceed to an indictment, but if Loretta Lynch is the head of the [Department of Justice] in the United States, she's not going to indict Hillary Clinton," he said. 

    Nevertheless, Assange insisted that the accumulated material is certainly enough to indict her.

    ​The website issued the collection of emails regarding the Iraq War, gathered from Mrs. Clinton's private server, ahead of the Chilcot Report, a British public inquiry into the nation's role in the disastrous war launched in 2003, which critics say led to the destabilization of the Middle East. The collection of emails is part of a trove of emails released by the State Department in February under the Freedom of Information Act.

    Clinton is facing the threat of an indictment by the FBI over her use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State from 2009-2013. In addition to putting state secrets at risk, Clinton's use of a private server has been criticized for its alleged attempt to keep secrets from prying government and public eyes, with the Clinton Foundation repeatedly accused of catering to special interests, including foreign interests. Many allege that she has received millions in campaign contributions from the Saudi monarchy.

    Following the State Department's release of Clinton's emails in February, WikiLeaks created a searchable archive containing over 50,000 pages of documents covering the former Secretary of State's email correspondence between 2010 and 2014.

    The Democratic Party's frontrunner and presumed nominee for the presidency, Clinton's campaign sees the FBI investigation as a possible sword of Damocles hanging over the former Secretary's head, with the Democratic convention coming up later this month and Republican rival Donald Trump repeatedly threatening to put her in prison over the scandal.

    Over the weekend, the FBI grilled Clinton for nearly four hours as part of their investigation, days after former President Bill Clinton held secret talks with Attorney General Lynch, who is responsible for the government's investigation. Mrs. Clinton said that Mr. Clinton's 30 minute meeting with Lynch onboard her plane was not connected with the email investigation.
