10 Highlights From The 7,000 Pages Of Released Clinton Emails

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaking in Cleveland last week. She has said nothing in her emails was marked classified.

The State Department released some 7,000 pages of Hillary Clinton's emails Monday from her time as secretary of state. This batch is the latest in a series of monthly, court-ordered releases that started in May. This is the largest batch so far.

An early scan reveals little new information — a lot of logistics planning, tech issues, and news articles sent around. One email appears to suggest some confusion at the State Department help desk about Clinton's actual email address.

The Clinton campaign tweeted some of the quirky emails that show her asking about TV show Parks & Recreation and joking about her shoe falling off. It's an interesting tactic for the campaign, trying to use the email controversy to highlight a lighter side of Clinton — and to try and prove there isn't much "news" in the emails.

As NPR reported earlier, the State Department said Monday that 150 of these emails are now considered "confidential" by the government. Lots of redactions can be seen in the emails — in some places contact information is blanked out and in other places entire exchanges are blank.

"We stand by our contention that the information we've upgraded was not marked 'classified' at the time the emails were sent," State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Monday in a press briefing. Clinton has said nothing was marked classified at the time. She has also said she should have used two email addresses, rather than conducting work and personal business on her private server.

Here are 10 highlights from the email dump:

1) Redacted meeting with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg

2) Early adopter: The ipad 1 was introduced in April 2010

3) Calling out "Ogrish Males"

4) Hillary Clinton suggests a partnership with the Clinton Foundation

5) Mom, Dad, don't forward my emails. Love, Chelsea

6) Delegating: reports, TV show times, tea cups

7) A staffer apparently thought she had a State Department email

8) "So glad you were born," from former aide Cheryl Mills

9) Anne-Marie Slaughter, who went on to write about work-life balance, urged Clinton's aide Huma Abedin to take a day off

10) Requesting a status update on ... gefilte fish
