The Free Beacon has obtained exclusive copies of several emails the State Department is planning to release late Tuesday evening, the timing of which the administration insists was chosen due to its profound commitment to transparency. Like previously disclosed correspondence, the emails shed more light on the relationship between then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her “old friend” Sidney Blumenthal.
