Turns Out, Reviewing 55K Pages Of Emails Takes Awhile
The State Department process for reviewing Hillary Clinton's emails involves re-digitizing 55,000 pages and manually going through each of them.By Elizabeth Hagedorn | May 23, 2015
For your viewing pleasure, the U.S. State Department has posted a trove of Hillary Clinton's emails on its website — 896 pages in all. But that's only a fraction of the 30,000 emails she turned over. The public will get access to the rest of those on "a rolling basis."
“I just would like to see it expedited, so we could get more of them out more quickly," Clinton told reporters in New Hampshire. (Video via MSNBC)
