    Trump’s campaign said that the newly found 30 emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server possibly were related to the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack.

    • The 30 emails were part of a larger cache of roughly 15,000 emails the FBI recovered
    • State Department lawyers told a U.S. district judge that some of the possibly-Benghazi-related emails were not part of the trove of emails Clinton handed over to the State Department

    “Today’s disclosure that 30 additional emails about Benghazi were discovered on Hillary Clinton’s private server raises additional questions about the more than 30,000 emails she deleted,” Trump’s senior communications adviser Jason Miller

    • The revelation of potentially newly discovered Benghazi emails adds to the migraine the Clinton camp has suffered throughout her presidential campaign
    • Tuesday’s hearing also delved into when the State Department would be able to publicly release the thousands of emails the FBI recovered
    • State contended that it will take until the end of next month to complete the review and redact classified information before the emails can be released publicly
    • It is the second straight week that Clinton’s emails as secretary of state have put her presidential campaign on the defensive
    • Trump has hammered his Democratic opponent over the emails, which he said represented evidence that Clinton had instituted a “pay for play” scheme at the State Department
    • This is a summary of Louis Nelson’s writeup on Politico

    “My work as secretary of state was not influenced by outside sources. I made policy decisions based on what I thought to keep Americans safe and protect our interests abroad,” Clinton told “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski
