A federal judge has ordered the State Department to go back and look harder for emails about the attack on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

U.S. District Judge for the District of Columbia Amit Mehta says the State Department must search the "state.gov" email server for records related to the Benghazi terror attacks, which killed four Americans, including an ambassador.

Specifically, the department is ordered to search the email accounts of aides of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, including Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and Jacob Sullivan.
