WASHINGTON — The State Department plans to make about 3,000 pages of Hillary Rodham Clinton's correspondence publically available on Tuesday evening.

The release comes as part of a court mandate that the agency release batches of Clinton's email correspondence from her time as secretary of state every 30 days starting June 30. The goal is for the department to publicly unveil 55,000 pages of her emails by Jan. 29, 2016. They were sent from the personal email address that Clinton used when she was secretary.

Clinton, a Democratic presidential candidate, has said she wants the department to release the emails as soon as possible. The disclosure that she conducted State Department business on a private email account has been a controversy for the campaign.
