Chairman Gowdy: ‘I Just Can’t Trust Hillary’s Lawyers’ To Delete Private Emails


Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., the chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, told Chris Wallace that Hillary Clinton and her aides did not have the right to “decide what’s personal and what’s public.”

Clinton hoped to put EmailGate behind her and her expected 2016 campaign, but the quick press conference did not satisfy the critics and media. But the former secretary of state told reporters she would not willingly hand over the server even to an independent investigator.

When asked if he thought the House of Representatives should issue a subpoena to force Clinton to hand over the server for investigation, Gowdy said he hopes “it doesn’t get to that point.”

“It’s an open legal question and any time you litigate something you’re talking about years and years,” Chairman Gowdy said. “I think an imminently reasonable alternative is for her to turn over that server to an independent, neutral third party.”

“But who gets to decide what’s personal and what’s public?” Gowdy noted “And if it’s a mixed-use e-mail and lots of e-mails we get in life are both personal and some work, I just can’t trust her lawyers to make the determination that the public is getting everything they’re entitled to.”
