(Newser) – The Defense Department has found a number of messages sent from Hillary Clinton's private email account that she failed to turn over to the Obama administration, the AP reports. Clinton has repeatedly claimed to have passed along all work-related emails from her private account and server. These fewer than 10 emails are a conversation between her and David Petraeus—who was heading the Iraq and Afghanistan wars at the time—and are mostly related to personnel matters. But Clinton had said she no longer had any emails sent before March 18, 2009, the AP reports. These newly discovered emails were sent in January 2009, raising questions about the veracity of her claims.

The Clinton-Petraeus emails will be made public—as will all of the 30,000 emails Clinton turned over to the administration—as soon as they are edited to remove classified and sensitive information, the AP reports. The FBI and various members of Congress are continuing to investigate. Since it was revealed Clinton used her private email for government work, she hasn't been able to get away from the scandal, and New York thinks the latest development shows why that won't change anytime soon: "It will take a lot more investigating and reporting to explain what this all means—which means that Clinton is going to continue to answer more questions about this for the foreseeable future." The next censored batch of Clinton emails will be made public next Wednesday. (FBI agents are making progress recovering emails that were deemed personal by Clinton and deleted.)
