The State Department has 55,000 pages of documents to review but the Democrats on the Benghazi panel, led by Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, want the agency to first release the emails Clinton sent to the select committee last year.
“Since the Department has already produced approximately 850 pages of these documents to the Select Committee on Benghazi, we request that the Department begin its review for public release with this subset of 850 pages of Benghazi-related documents in order to make them available to the public first without waiting for the full review of all 55,000 pages of documents,” the Democrats wrote.
Clinton’s emails have come under spotlight since the New York Times reported last week that the likely 2016 presidential candidate used a personal email address and a private server in her home.
Clinton eventually asked for the State Department to make her emails public, a process that could take months as each page needs to be screened for sensitive information.
