Washington, May 20: A federal judge on Tuesday rejected the State Department’s plan to publish next January the emails of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton. Judge Rudolph Contreras said on Tuesday that he will ask that the emails not be released en masse but gradually and he will require that the State Department establish a schedule for making them public. In question are some 55,000 pages of emails from the 2009-2012 period. Clinton turned over those files to the State Department after controversy arose over the fact that during those four years she always used a persol email account and a private server for her communications. The department’s target date for publishing the emails is January 15, 2016, just two weeks before the Iowa caucuses, the first important milestone of Clinton’s battle for the Democratic presidential nomition. The future publication of these documents comes as a result of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Vice News. (IANS)
