On Tuesday, the conservative group Judicial Watch released 165 pages of emails from Hillary Clinton's private server obtained from the State Department through a Freedom of Information Act request. The emails were from the inbox of Clinton aide Huma Abedin, who also had an account on Clinton's server, but 44 of the emails were to or from Clinton herself, and not included in the 30,000 work-related emails Clinton turned over to the State Department, as required by law.

Last August, Clinton wrote, under oath, that "I have directed that all my emails on clintonemail.com in my custody that were or potentially were federal records be provided to the Department of State, and on information and belief, this has been done." State Department spokesman Mark Tooner said that while the newly released emails were included in the records Abedin turned over to the department in March 2015, they weren't in Clinton's dossier. Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon said Abedin and Clinton had turned over "all potentially work-related emails in their possession," but "we understand Secretary Clinton had some emails with Huma that Huma did not have, and Huma had some emails with Secretary Clinton that Secretary Clinton did not have."
