The State Department on Tuesday released 3,000 pages of emails from the private server former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used while in office.
The correspondence, released online, covers March through December 2009.
The 1,925 emails cover a broad spectrum of the seemingly everyday activities required to run the State Department, including arranging phone calls with foreign leaders at all times of day and night.
Clinton sent several messages at the end of her work day to her longtime aide, Huma Abedin, often asking whether there was anything else she needed to know.
Some emails touch on White House aides trying to get Clinton’s personal email address, including then-Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and then-Senior Advisor to the President David Axelrod.
The messages include several from Clinton ally Sidney Blumenthal, who offered his take on various policy issues in Europe.
Among the messages, on July 11, 2009, Clinton received an email from “Jimmy” — presumably former President Jimmy Carter — titled “N. Korea.”
The message seems to be about freeing journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee, who were charged and held with illegal passage into the Stalinist state. It reads:
“Hillary: As I explained to you on the phone, I don’t think it is appropriate to tell them that I will come only if they agree in advance to release the women. Your response was, in effect, ‘They have already agreed.’ Is this correct? If not, I will go, by commercial airline if necessary, representing The Carter Center, and try to induce them to approve the release. JC”
