WASHINGTON: The FBI has uncovered nearly 15,000 previously undisclosed emails linked to Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state, media reports said today.

This is in addition to the thousands of email that Clinton handed over to the State Department and the more than 30,000 emails deleted by her.

FBI has handed over these emails to State Department, media reports said.

A federal judge today asked the State Department to start releasing these emails no later by mid-October.

The records are among "tens of thousands" of documents found by the FBI in its probe and turned over to the State Department, Justice Department attorney Lisa Ann Olson said Monday in court, according to The Washington Post.

In a statement, the Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said alleged that Clinton seems incapable of telling the truth.

"Clinton’s pattern of serial dishonesty is completely unacceptable for a candidate seeking the nation’s highest office, and her refusal to tell the truth and own up to her poor judgment is a preview of how she would conduct herself if elected president," he said.

"Even worse, this news comes on the heels of the Clinton camp falsely trying to pin her email woes on Colin Powell, raising serious questions about whether she lied to the FBI. The process for reviewing these emails needs to be expedited, public disclosure should begin before early voting starts, and the emails in question should be released in full before Election Day," Priebus said.
