Transcript for Hillary Clinton Asks State Department to Release Emails
We turn to the latest fallout from the controversy over Hillary Clinton's e-mails. She responded overnight with a tweet saying she's asked the state department to publicly release her e-mails and this comes after a house committee investigating the benghazi attacks subpoenaed that account. Jon Karl joins us with the latest. Which e-mails will the public see and when will we see them? Reporter: This will be the honor system. The e-mails to be released will come from the 55,000 pages of e-mails Mrs. Clinton turned over to the state department late last year but, remember, those were especiallies she and her team reviewed. She chose which of her e-mails to turn over to the state department. So the bottom line is, people will have to trust that she has turned over all relevant official documents to the state department. As for when, the state department only will say it'll take some time to review the e-mails. I would expect this process to take months, not weeks. And, Jon, there had been some suggestions some laws may not have been fullile toed. Is that still the case? Reporter: That's what the congress is investigating. It looks, the white house believes, if she did what she said she did she followed the letter of the law if not the spirit of the law. Jon Karl, thanks very much.
