Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Friday that emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server might be released before the Nov. 3 election.

Pompeo was asked if he is concerned that revealing the emails would have national security implications given that some of them likely contain classified information.

"I've been at this a long time with President Trump, for four years now, almost. I've never seen him do anything that would put any kind of asset, any one of our officers in harms way. He wouldn't do that," Pompeo said on Fox News. "We'll get the information out that needs to get out."

Addressing the timing of the potential release of the emails, Pompeo said, "We're doing it as fast as we can. I certainly think there will be more to see before the election."

President Trump said this week that he had declassified documents from the investigation into Clinton's use of the private server for e-mail during her tenure as secretary of state, America's top diplomat. There are reportedly as many as 33,000 e-mails from Clinton's private server that haven't been released publicly.
