The deal itself was no secret: A week before the e-mail, President Barack Obama had submitted to Congress an agreement between the US and the United Arab Emirates, also known as a "123 Agreement", that would "establish the legal framework for the United States to engage in civil nuclear cooperation with the UAE under agreed nonproliferation conditions and controls", according to a State Department news release at the time.
Government officials told Mehta they will start handing over the new Federal Bureau of Investigation discovered emails September 30 and hope to wrap everything up by October 31. It included the controversial recommendation that Clinton not be prosecuted for mishandling classified information in her private email server.
The hearing was held of lawsuits filed by the conservative legal group Judicial Watch, which has pursued to government records involving the Democratic presidential nominee.
The FBI has recovered some 30 deleted emails from Hillary Clinton's private email server that had contents related to the 2012 Benghazi attack.
Clinton was ordered earlier this month by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan to answer the group's questions under oath. The judge's order was only a partial victory for the group, which had sought to depose Clinton in person.
A Clinton spokesman dismissed Judicial Watch in an earlier statement as "a right-wing organization that has been attacking the Clintons since the 1990s".
Clinton lawyer David Kendall did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment about the timing of his client's planned response.
A law enforcement official also told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the FBI is expected to release documents soon related to its investigation, which focused on whether Clinton and her aides mishandled government secrets.
"At this time, we have not confirmed that the documents are, in fact, responsive, or whether they are duplicates of materials already provided to the Department by former Secretary Clinton in December 2014", he added.
Regarding the email turned up in the RNC's Freedom of Information Act request, Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said Wednesday that the campaign is investigating.
James Comey, FBI Director said, Clinton's actions as "extremely careless", and his agent has not found any evidence to break law and said "no reasonable prosecutor" would have brought a criminal case.
Meanwhile, the FBI is preparing to release some of the documents from its investigation in a matter of days. Just day before announcing decision to close investigation FBI took interview of Clinton for few hours.
