The FBI released 189 documents late Friday night from their investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

The documents include communications from IT employees who referred to an effort to delete Clinton's emails as "Hillary coverup operation," according to the Washington Examiner. The emails were sent by employees at Platte River Networks, a firm hired to help manage Clinton's server.

An employee from Platte River Networks has been granted immunity by the Department of Justice. Two refused to testify at a congressional hearing on the matter.

The release of these documents comes on the same day the FBI granted immunity to Cheryl Mills, who was Clinton's chief of staff at the State Department, as well as the announcement that many of Clinton's emails will not be publicly released until after the election.

The FBI released the emails late on Friday, traditionally the time when the public is paying the least attention going into the weekend.
