WASHINGTON, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- More than 7,000 pages of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails were released, including some 150 that have been retroactively classified.

State Department spokesman Mark Toner said the sensitive information in the emails had been classified since Clinton originally received or sent them. The information has since been redacted.

None of the emails in the batch released Monday has been designated currently classified, he added.

Some of the information in this fourth installment of the email dump showcased mundane musings, including her desire to watch NBC's Parks and Recreation and CBS' The Good Wife, Gefilte fish, and criticism from Fox News.

Clinton, a 2016 Democratic presidential hopeful, has long said her use of a private email account did not violate any laws or regulations. In May, the first batch was made public.
