Correspondence between then Secretary of State Clinton's four top aides — Deputy Asst. Secretary of State Michael Fuchs, Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin, and Ambassador-At-Large Melanne Verveer — and officials with the Clinton Foundation and Bill Clinton's brainchild, public relations firm Teneo holdings are at the heart of the delay.
Those emails, should the delay be permitted by the court, would not be released until October 2018 — nearly halfway through Clinton's first term if she indeed secures the White House.
"The State Department originally estimated that 6,000 emails and other documents were exchanged by the aides with the Clinton Foundation. But a series of 'errors' the department told the court about Wednesday evening now mean the total has grown to '34,116 potentially responsive documents.'"
