Because it’s the Friday before a raucous drinking holiday, the State Department released today 7000 new pages of messages (or, 4432 individual messages) pulled from Hillary Clinton’s homebrew email server—including 268 more classified emails.

That brings the grand total of classified messages housed on the former Secretary’s unsecured server to over 600.

Most of the messages released are from 2011-2012, and reports show that none of them are related to the attack on the American outpost in Benghazi.

More from the Washington Free Beacon:

State Department spokesman John Kirby said that none of the emails now marked classified “were marked classified at the time they were sent or received.” Most of the emails set for release Friday were sent or received by the former secretary of state between 2011 and 2012, save a few from 2009 and 2010 that haven’t been made public in earlier releases.

The release of Clinton emails in September saw 215 messages marked classified, three of them designated “secret.”

While the State Department says the newly classified messages were not classified at the time they were sent or received, the inspector general of the intelligence community did determine from a small sample he reviewed that two emails held on Clinton’s system contained top secret–the highest classification–information at the time they were sent. Other intelligence agencies have backed up this finding.

Some highlights from today’s dump include Hillary’s enthusiasm over the writings of one Max Blumenthal…

…and an enlightening discussion about the State Department’s use of vulnerable technology:

She really resented having to work with Benjamin Netanyahu:

She enjoyed trading nasties with her aides about Republicans’ foreign policy ideas…

…and was super paranoid about being monitored by the “neocons”:

We still have three more releases to go, pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.
