The State Department released 3,000 pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails late Tuesday evening, the bulk of which are from 2009, the first year Clinton served as the nation’s Secretary of State.

This latest batch of emails released from Clinton’s personal server differs from last month’s 850 page batch (which were mostly about Libya and the 2012 Benghazi attack) in that it covers a broader range of topics. Clinton’s emails from 2009 are part of a larger release that will be ongoing throughout her presidential campaign. Last night’s email dump is the first of more than 50,000 pages expected to be released and later examined by the State.

To the dismay of dissenters, there appear to be no “smoking guns” in Clinton’s emails, which run the gamut of hot-topic issues from Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan and Iraq. While heavily redacted, the emails cover more of the day to day mundane details of Clinton’s life, including her battle with a fax machine and a grandmotherly note to “wear socks to keep your feet warm." Also of note is Colin Powell's joke email about Richard Holbrooke after Clinton had tripped and fractured her elbow in 2009.

However, the GOP still express suspicion about the nature and content of Clinton’s emails, and have asked for an independent investigator to determine which of the emails should be disclosed.
