State Department officials announced Monday their intention to publish 7,000 pages of Hillary Clinton’s private emails in a late-night document release, surpassing their own previous estimates.

The agency said the publication, which is slated for 9 p.m. Monday, will produce more emails than did the document releases in May, June and July combined.

After falling short of a court-ordered benchmark at the end of July, releasing just 2,206 pages of emails, the State Department vowed to get back on track by publishing additional emails in August and September.

State officials had promised to release at least 6,106 pages of emails at the end of August, the largest batch of records to be posted online since the agency began putting out emails in May.
