Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), the chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, is going after Hillary Clinton, and her private emails.
Gowdy has stated before that he would be calling Clinton back to testify about the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that left four Americans dead, but not that new reveleation that the former First Lady and Secretaty of State used her private email account to conduct official business, Gowdy smells blood in the water.
“[T]hey cannot certify that they have produced all of former Secretary Clinton’s emails because they do not have them or control them.”-Rep.Trey Gowdy
“The Department of State is relying on Secretary Clinton herself and her attorneys and advisors to tell us, to tell you, what emails they think are to be preserved… nothing short of incredible” that any top official would use personal emails while in office, especially given past concerns from both parties about how that practice makes it hard to keep a record of their tenure in office.
Then he said this:
“The State Department does not have all of the former Secretary’s emails on its servers, only she has the complete record…And the committee is going to have to go to her, her lawyers and her email providers to ensure we have access to everything the American people are entitled to know.”
“I am also greatly concerned about the national security implications of former Secretary Clinton exclusively using personal email accounts for the conduct of official U.S. foreign policy.
“The fact the Benghazi Committee was able to uncover this previously unknown, and before today unreported, information speaks to the need for the Benghazi committee,” he said. “The fact that fact the committee does not rush to trumpet every discovery we make speaks to my personal commitment to conduct a fair and impartial investigation into the Benghazi terrorist attack.”
