Thousands of Hillary Clinton’s emails while she was United States secretary of state have been released, including many that have been censored after being deemed classified.
Clinton, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for the 2016 presidential election, has been under fire for using a private computer server for work emails while in office; but she says no classified information was sent or received.
However some 150 emails were deemed confidential by the State Department, as her opponents have accused her of putting US security at risk by using an unsecured computer system.
The State Department released 4,368 emails, totaling 7,121 pages; saying about 150 of the messages had to be censored because they contained information considered to be classified.
Meanwhile, the presidential hopeful, who served as Secretary of State from 2009-2013, has admitted that her decision to use a private email server at her New York home was a mistake.
