On Monday night, the State Department released more than 7,000 emails sent by Hillary Clinton from a private server during her time as secretary of state.

Out of those emails, 125 are now considered classified, all at the lowest classification, "Confidential," Politico reports. Earlier Monday, the State Department told reporters none were deemed classified when they were sent, Time reports. At the time, a State Department spokesman had estimated that 150 of the emails were now deemed classified. Clinton has continously said that she did not send any emails marked classified from the server. This is the third and largest release of Clinton's emails from her tenure as secretary of state, and the new batch of 7,121 emails puts the State Department back on track with the court-ordered release schedule.
