Trey Gowdy slaps Hillary with subpoenas for ‘private’ emails in Benghazi investigation

The House committee investigating the 2012 terror attack in Benghazi, Libya, issued subpoeanas Wednesday demanding emails related to the attack from the private server owned by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“I want the documents,” House Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.,  told reporters, according to The Associated Press. “Sooner rather than later.”

House Speaker John Boehner said Clinton’s use of a private email account with a privately owned server — in possible violation of the Federal Records Act — would not stop House investigators from obtaining the emails.

“It doesn’t matter if the server was in Foggy Bottom, Chappaqua, or Bora Bora,” he said, according to The  AP. “The Benghazi Select Committee needs to see all of these emails, because the American people deserve all of the facts.”
