The State Department has proposed a deadline of January 2016 to publicly release 55,000 pages of emails exchanged on Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private server and later turned over to the agency, Politico reported.

The proposal was included in a document related to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed in January by Vice News.

A declaration filed in U.S. District Court in Washington by State Department acting Director of Information Programs and Services John Hackett reads in part: “The Department understands the considerable public’s [sic] interest in these records and is endeavoring to complete the review and production of them as expeditiously as possible. The collection is, however, voluminous and, due to the breadth of topics, the nature of the communications, and the interests of several agencies, presents several challenges.”

Mrs. Clinton’s 2016 presidential aspirations have been weighed down by the controversies surrounding her use of a private email server and foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation during her tenure as secretary of state.
