The State Department on Friday afternoon turned over 1,600 pages of new documents related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Libya, the House Select Committee on Benghazi announced.

The trove of documents, requested by the House committee nearly a year ago, could ultimately be released to the public if a Freedom of Information Act request is filed, but would likely contain redactions.

According to the Benghazi committee, the State Department claimed last month that it had only recently discovered the documents from Clinton.

The committee added that the Obama administration has still failed to turn over additional records requested about a year ago.
