    The US Department of State has released more than 1,200 additional pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails.

    The US Department of State has released more than 1,200 additional pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails from her time as the country’s chief diplomat, department spokesperson Mark Toner said in a briefing on Thursday.

    Most of the documents are "near duplicates" of those already made public.

    The State Department also expects to meet Friday’s court-imposed deadline to process 350 pages of Clinton’s emails, spokesman Mark Toner said.

    FBI Director James Comey announced last week he had re-opened a probe of whether Clinton violated laws protecting classified information by using a private and unprotected email server during her tenure as US secretary of state.

    On Wednesday, US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said at a rally in Florida that the cache of 650,000 Clinton-related emails recently uncovered by the FBI will likely show she was involved in illegal activities.
