NEW YORK - The US State Department released the final batch of Hillary Clinton's emails on Monday from her time at the agency's helm, bringing the final tally of emails it says contain classified information to more than 2,000.
The department has been regularly releasing batches of her work emails in keeping with a judge's order. But Monday's release of the final 1,700 messages does not end the controversy and legal uncertainty dogging Clinton's Democratic presidential campaign since her use of a private email server came to light a year ago.
Republican rivals in the battle for the Nov. 8 election have cited the email controversy in saying Clinton, the Democratic front-runner, is unfit for the presidency.
Clinton, secretary of state from 2009 to 2013, has said her email arrangement broke no rules and that she will be vindicated.
