Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday said that the State Department will release Hillary Clinton’s emails and hinted that the disclosure may come before Election Day.
“We’re going to get all this information out so the American people can see it. You’ll remember there was classified information on a private server, should have never been there, Hillary Clinton should never have done that, that was unacceptable behavior,” Pompeo added.
Clinton’s use of an unauthorized private email server to conduct government business during her tenure as the secretary of state became a major issue in the 2016 election. Then-FBI Director James Comey exonerated Clinton of any wrongdoing in July 2016 after a yearlong inquiry which focused on whether she mishandled classified information.
Comey then publicly announced the reopening of the investigation after the FBI field office in New York discovered Clinton emails on the laptop of Anthony Weiner, the former husband of Huma Abedin, Clinton’s right hand. Investigators working at the Crimes Against Children unit found hundreds of thousands of Clinton emails while examining Weiner’s laptop as part of an investigation into his explicit exchanges with a minor girl. Days later, Comey announced that the FBI had reviewed the emails, found no new evidence, and again closed the case.
