The State Department will release roughly 7,000 pages of Hillary Rodham Clinton's emails Monday, including about 150 emails that have been censored because they contain information that is now deemed classified.
Department officials said the redacted information was classified in preparation for the public release of the emails and not identified as classified at the time Clinton sent or received the messages. All the censored material in the latest group of emails is classified at the "confidential" level, not at higher "top secret" or compartmentalized levels, they said.
The U.S. Supreme Court this week faces the first religious objection to reach the justices since the decision declaring a constitutional right to same-sex marriage, NBC News reported.
A county clerk in Kentucky is asking for relief from a lower court order directing her to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples. Her lawyers filed an emergency application directed to Justice Elena Kagan, who handles such requests from that part of the country.
Kim Davis, the clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky, "holds an undisputed sincerely held religious belief that marriage is a union between a man and a woman, only," her lawyers say in their application.
The requirement to issue same-sex marriage licenses "demands that she either fall in line or leave office."

White supremacist Frazier Glenn Cross was convicted Monday of capital murder in the killings of three people at two Kansas Jewish centers last year — convictions he'd predicted and told jurors he expected, NBC News reported.
Cross, 74, pleaded not guilty even though he defiantly admitted having killed Dr. William Corporon, 69, and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Underwood, outside Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City and Terri LaManno, 53, outside the Village Shalom retirement center in April 2014. None were Jewish.
The verdicts came after a wild morning in Olathe, Kansas, that saw District Judge Thomas Kelly Ryan eject Cross — a former leader of the defunct White Patriot Party of North Carolina who is also known as Glenn Miller — from the courtroom after he denounced all of the court officers as Jewish sympathizers.
A third extreme-skydiving enthusiast convicted of reckless endangerment, BASE jumping and other charges after parachuting off of the World Trade Center in September 2013 escaped jail time at his sentencing Monday, authorities say.

Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell will remain free while appealing his corruption convictions to the U.S. Supreme Court. The Supreme Court granted McDonnell's request to stay out of jail while justices decide whether to review his case. McDonnell argued he would suffer "irreparable harm'' if he served most or all of his two-year prison term and his 11 convictions were later overturned. U.S. Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr. argued McDonnell has not demonstrated that the Supreme Court is likely to take his case and, if it does, that he is likely to succeed.
Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansoor became Taliban's new chief last month after the announcement that longtime leader Mullah Omar had been dead for two years.
The announcement sparked a leadership battle. While the Taliban hashes out the dispute over Mansoor's appointment, those loyal to Mansoor on Monday released an in-depth biography of the man. NBC News cannot confirm the veracity of the document's contents as the Taliban's media arm is notoriously unreliable.
According to the bio, Mansoor "speaks less and tries to listen more to other people," he wears "neat and clean clothes" and "is fully conscious of the delicacy and complexity of all contemporary regional and international politics."
