WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Republican Party has filed a flurry of new lawsuits seeking reams of government documents related to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state.

The Republican National Committee filed four complaints on Monday in U.S. District Court in Washington. The lawsuits stem from Freedom of Information Act requests the GOP filed last year. They join two lawsuits filed earlier this month.

The Republicans want all messages between 14 State Department officials and private email domains associated with Clinton, former President Bill Clinton, their daughter Chelsea Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. The GOP also wants communications between the State Department and officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development, which distributes foreign aid.

Another request targets records about training for State Department employees on the handling of classified information.
