A federal judge officially ordered authorities to search the government email accounts of several aides to Hillary Clinton during her time as Secretary of State to further investigate the Benghazi attacks, according to The Daily Caller.
Washington, D.C. District Court Judge Amit Mehta declared this week that email accounts associated with Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and Jake Sullivan must be searched. All three were Clinton’s top aides at the State Department.

Mehta said that the State Department did not do enough to search for all emails it has on its computer systems regarding the Benghazi attacks, which left four Americans dead.
The State Department reviewed the 30,000-plus emails that Clinton returned to the agency in Dec. 2014. It has also searched emails that Abedin, Mills and Sullivan sent and received on personal accounts.
“Secretary Clinton used a private email server, located in her home, to transmit and receive work-related communications during her tenure as Secretary of State,” Mehta said.
“[State] has not, however, searched the one records system over which it has always had control and that is almost certain to contain some responsive records: the state.gov email server.”
Mehta went on to say they’ve received “no assurance” from the State Department that the records it currently has are the entirety of what was requested.
