    Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus stated that the process for reviewing 15,000 emails to and from Hillary Clinton when she was US secretary of state uncovered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) needs to be expedited, public disclosure should begin before early voting starts.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The nearly 15,000 emails to and from Hillary Clinton when she was US secretary of state uncovered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) should be released to the American people before the November 8 presidential election, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement on Monday.

    "The process for reviewing these emails needs to be expedited, public disclosure should begin before early voting starts and the emails in question should be released in full before Election Day," Preibus stated.

    In an investigation over the past year, the FBI discovered the emails that Clinton and her lawyers had never previously acknowledged to exist.

    Earlier on Monday, a US federal judge called on the US Department of State to release the emails earlier than the middle of October when it had said it would.

    "Hillary Clinton seems incapable of telling the truth. Clinton’s pattern of serial dishonesty is completely unacceptable for a candidate seeking the nation’s highest office, and her refusal to tell the truth… is a preview of how she would conduct herself if elected president," Peibus said.

    The additional 14,900 Clinton documents are nearly 50 percent more than the more than 33,000 work-related emails from Clinton’s years as secretary of state between 2009 and 2013, which her lawyers had previously returned to the State Department to be published in December 2014.
