The State Department on Tuesday proposed to begin periodically releasing Hillary Clinton's emails on June 30, starting the drip of the 55,000 pages of messages recovered from the Democratic presidential front-runner's private email server.
In a court filing Tuesday, State proposed to release documents publicly on June 30, and then every 60 days thereafter.
"The Department will strive to produce as many documents as possible on each production date, and will file a status report one week after each production to inform the Court of the number of pages posted," Department of Justice lawyers representing State said in the proposal Tuesday evening.
The attorneys add: "The Department is keenly aware of the intense public interest in the documents and wants to get releasable materials out as soon as possible. Accordingly, it is committed to reallocating further resources to accommodate the additional effort required by rolling productions so that it can still complete the production on or before the Department's initial proposed deadline of January 15, 2016."
The proposal comes after Judge Rudolph Contreras of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia last week rejected the department's plan to withhold Clinton's messages until early 2016.
