[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Congressman Trey Gowdy, chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi, formally demanded that former secretary of state, 2016 Democrat presidential hopeful, and wife of serial woman abuser Bill Clinton, the overly secretive Hillary Clinton, appear before the committee to answer questions regarding her massive purging of thousands of emails regarding official government business which she had stored on a private email server in her private residence.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Chairman Gowdy, known for his tough and often entertaining interviewing skills that leave the target looking befuddled, gave the polarizing Ms. Clinton a deadline of May 1, 2015 to comply.
Earlier this month, Gowdy announced that there were “huge gaps,” in the emails the calculating Clinton provided to the committee, specifically around the time surrounding the Benghazi terrorist attacks on September 11, 2012, which unnecessarily led to the deaths of four Americans, including former ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens.
Clinton deceptively blamed the attacks on an obscure YouTube video deemed offensive to Muslims, a known lie that was created to deflect blame from the State Department, which she headed at the time.
When questioned by Senator Ron Johnson about the matter in January 2013, a defiant Clinton coldly answered, “What difference at this point does it make?”
Just last week, Gowdy announced that he had been informed by Clinton’s attorney that she had wiped her server clean, a similar scheme used by Lois Lerner in the Obama IRS targeting scandal.
Gowdy wrote in the letter to Clinton’s attorney on Tuesday:
Secretary Clinton’s refusal to allow the Inspector General to ensure the public record is complete is not only disappointing but portends to delay the ability of our Committee to complete its work as expeditiously as possible. We, therefore, urge the Secretary to reconsider her position and allow a neutral, detached, and independent arbiter ensure the public record is complete and all materials relevant to the Committee’s work have been provided to the Committee.
If the Secretary continues to reject the offer of a neutral review, the House of Representatives as a whole will need to consider its next steps. As you know the production of documents made to the Select Committee represents a very small portion of the total public record housed in the Secretary’s possession until recently. As such, other committees of Congress as well as the media and the public at large have equities in the Secretary’s public record.
Although I have made this abundantly clear, it bears repeating: our Committee has no interest in any emails related to the Secretary’s personal, private matters nor is our Committee seeking documents unrelated to Libya and Benghazi during the relevant time periods. The Committee is, however, committed to reviewing and considering every document related to the work the House of Representatives charged us with doing.
Chairman Gowdy wrote that Clinton must explain her decision to bypass an official government email account, whether she retained emails regarding Benghazi following her departure from the State Department, as well as explain why she chose to delete certain emails.
Democrat Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth, whose running for the U.S. Senate in Illinois, said on Tuesday that Clinton must testify and that she would hold her “accountable” for erasing government emails from her private server.
