    Legal watchdog Judicial Watch said that a US federal judge ordered the US Department of State to review and release newly discovered Hillary Clinton emails from the FBI.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — A US federal judge ordered the US Department of State to review and release newly discovered Hillary Clinton emails from the FBI, legal watchdog Judicial Watch said in a press release.

    “Judicial Watch today announced that a federal court has ordered the State Department to review newly found Clinton emails and turn over responsive records by September 13,” the release stated on Thursday.

    In a court filing this week, the release noted, the State Department admitted it discovered Benghazi-related documents among the 14,900 emails and attachments, uncovered by the FBI, she had previously deleted and withheld.

    The new emails come in response to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed in November 13, 2015, seeking all communications between Clinton and the White House from the day of the terrorist attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya through the following week.
