Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday he expects his agency will release more of Hillary Clinton’s emails in the coming weeks after President Trump publicly urged him to be more aggressive in going after the former secretary of State and other political rivals.

“We’ve got the emails, we’re getting them out. We’re going to get all this information out so the American people can see it,” Pompeo said during an interview with Fox News’s Dana Perino. 

“We’re doing it as fast as we can. I certainly think there’ll be more to see before the election,” he added when pressed about the timing.

Pompeo did not specify exactly which emails he was referring to, though Trump and his allies have long railed against Clinton for keeping official emails with classified information on a personal server.

Classified information “should have never been there,” Pompeo said Friday in reference to the server, adding that the former Obama Cabinet secretary engaged in “unacceptable behavior.”

The declaration comes after Trump criticized Pompeo and Attorney General William Barr for not being aggressive enough in going after his political opponents.
