The State Department says about 30 emails involving the 2012 attack on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya, are among the thousands of Hillary Clinton emails recovered during the FBI’s recently closed investigation into her use of a private server.

Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta Tuesday that an undetermined number of the emails among the 30 were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton to the State Department. The agency said it would need until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released.

The hearing was held in one of several lawsuits filed by the conservative legal group Judicial Watch, which has sued over access to government records involving the Democratic presidential nominee.

Last week we learned the FBI discovered 15,000 more emails Clinton did not turn over during the course of the Bureau's criminal investigation of her private server. Clinton has claimed multiple times she turned over all "work related" emails to the State Department. She had not. Clinton also deleted 30,000 emails she deemed "personal." 

"I provided all of my emails that could possibly be work related," Clinton said on March 10, 2015.

Meanwhile, Judicial Watch has officially submitted court mandated questions to Clinton about her private email server, which she must answer under oath, in written form. The answers are due on September 29.
