WikiLeaks reveals 1258 Hillary Clinton emails on Iraq War

WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy website, has released more than 1,000 emails from Hillary Clinton's private email server pertaining to the Iraq War.

The website tweeted a link to 1,258 emails on Monday that Clinton sent during her time as secretary of state.

According to the release, the emails were obtained from the US State Department after they issued a Freedom of Information Act request. The emails stem from a State Department release back in February, The Hill reports.

Australian WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange previously claimed that  his website obtained enough proof for the FBI to indict the presumptive Democratic nominee for president.

"We could proceed to an indictment, but if Loretta Lynch is the head of the DOJ in the United States, she's not going to indict Hillary Clinton," Assange told ITV. "That's not possible that could happen."

The newly released information will likely only serve as political fodder for the presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, as Clinton met with FBI investigators over the weekend wrapping up the lengthy investigation. Sources close to the probe recently told CNN that the bureau will announce no charges against Clinton in the weeks to come.
