(Newser) – The public may have access to Hillary Clinton's releasable emails much sooner than January 15. US District Judge Rudolph Contreras has ordered a rolling release of some of the 55,000 pages of email now under review at the State Department, which says it will comply with the request, Reuters reports. The court order specifically asks that a schedule detailing the release of emails, including 300 relating to Benghazi, be put forth by next week. A strategist says the order will be a "rolling headache" for Clinton, who will be forced to respond to disclosures on the campaign trail. Speaking from an event in Iowa yesterday, Clinton said, "I want them out as soon as they can get out."
