WikiLeaks released 1,258 of the presidential hopeful's emails in relation to the Iraq war.

The whistleblowing website WikiLeaks released more than 1,000 emails from Hillary Clinton’s private email server pertaining to the Iraq War on Monday.

The website tweeted a link to 1,258 emails that Clinton wrote or received during her time as secretary of state, which WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange previously said would be enough to indict the presumptive Democratic nominee for president.

In March, WikiLeaks launched a searchable archive of more than 30,000 emails sent to and from Clinton’s private email server while she was secretary of state. The documents spanned from from June 30, 2010, to August 12, 2014, and include more than 7,500 documents sent by Clinton.

Assange and his organization have been staunch critics of Clinton, uncovering her role in Libya and other interventions by the U.S. during her tenure as Washington’s top diplomat.

Clinton is currently under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation over allegations that she used her private email to conduct official communications despite being repeatedly warned against doing so. Assange, however, said he doubted that she would be charged.

“We could proceed to an indictment, but if Loretta Lynch is the head of the DOJ (Department of Justice) in the United States, she’s not going to indict Hillary Clinton,” Assange told ITV last month.

The latest leaks came as Hillary Clinton met with the FBI for three and a half hours Saturday as part of the investigation into her use of a private email server while leading the State Department.

Sources close to the probe recently told CNN that the FBI will announce no charges against Clinton in the weeks to come.
