Excerpted from Lauren French’s article at politico.com – and don’t dare tell me you expected anything else:
Hillary Clinton did not hand over new documents to the House panel investigating Benghazi and wiped her server clean of past emails, the committee’s chairman said in a statement Friday.
Clinton did not provide correspondence or emails to the Select Committee on Benghazi, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), said, even though the former secretary of state was under a subpoena, issued early this month, for all correspondence from Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state that focused on Libya and Benghazi.
The refusal means Gowdy (R-S.C.) and Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) will now have to contemplate new legal actions against Clinton, who is preparing to announce a 2016 presidential bid.
“After seeking and receiving a two week extension from the Committee, Secretary Clinton failed to provide a single new document to the subpoena issued by the Committee and refused to provide her private server to the Inspector General for the State Department or any other independent arbiter for analysis,” Gowdy said.
That’s right. Hillary Clinton, instead of handing over the documents, gave the committee nothing, and made sure to wipe her server clean of anything they could have gotten.
This is the equivalent of telling Chairperson Trey Gowdy and the rest of the committee, “Come and get me, coppers? Oh, and by the way, don’t forget to vote for me in 2016.
Can the country possibly want four, maybe eight, years of this? I guess we’ll find out.
