WikiLeaks has recently accused Facebook for allegedly not allowing users access its newly released 30,322 emails and email attachments sent to and from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on its social network.

On its official Twitter account, WikiLeaks said “Dear @Facebook: stop censoring our Hillary Clinton email release. No, really. Stop it. There is no technical excuse.”

Clinton, who is currently the Democratic Party front-runner, is said to be the only Secretary of State to delete 31,830 emails from her own private server and without government oversight.

But WikiLeaks has dispatched on Wednesday an archive that has 30,322 emails and attachments from June 30, 2010, to Aug. 12, 2014.   According to WikiLeaks, Clinton wrote 7,570 of the documents in the archive.

The emails were released in response to a Freedom of Information request.

Before the move by WikiLeaks, the FBI was reviewing Clinton’s emails as part of its investigation into her use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.
