Hillary Clinton did not give the U.S. State Department at least 15 emails, that they are aware of, from her personal server during her time as Secretary of State. The State Department announcement disputes Clinton’s claim that the 30,000 emails she provided were complete.
Let’s see if Hillary can squirm her way out of this one.
The Examiner reported:
With the U.S. Supreme Court’s Obamacare decision on Thursday getting enormous media attention, hardly any news coverage was given to the State Department conceding that it received 15 emails involving Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton it did not previously possess on the Benghazi terrorist attack and its aftermath, according to the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina, on Thursday night. In essence, it shows that Hillary Clinton, once again, is alleged to have lied about the emails she claims she turned over to the State Department from her possibly illegal Internet server.
The State Department admitted Thursday evening that staff members were unable to locate the messages from Clinton’s tenure as secretary until now, according to news sources. State Department officials allegedly discovered it lacked the communications following the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s release of roughly 60 emails lawmakers obtained on Monday.
It’s believed these latest messages could answer questions regarding Mrs. Clinton’s activities before, during and after the deadly Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead including an ambassador. “Radical Islamists stormed the U.S. diplomatic mission in the already troubled city of Benghazi, killing Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in what intelligence and federal law enforcement officials believe was a coordinated attack by an al-Qaida affiliate.
The Select Committee on Benghazi released this statement on June 25, 2015.
Washington, DC—Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy today released the following statement after the State Department Thursday evening informed the committee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not turn over all of her records related to Benghazi and Libya.
“The State Department has informed the Select Committee that Secretary Clinton has failed to turn over all her Benghazi and Libya related records. This confirms doubts about the completeness of Clinton’s self-selected public record and raises serious questions about her decision to erase her personal server—especially before it could be analyzed by an independent, neutral third party arbiter.
“This has implications far beyond Libya, Benghazi and our committee’s work. This conclusively shows her email arrangement with herself, which was then vetted by her own lawyers, has resulted in an incomplete public record.
“These new messages in many instances were Clinton’s responses, which clearly show she was soliciting and regularly corresponding with Sidney Blumenthal—who was passing unvetted intelligence information about Libya from a source with a financial interest in the country. It just so happens these emails directly contradict her public statement that the messages from Blumenthal were unsolicited.
“The revelation these messages were not originally produced to the State Department by Clinton is significant and troubling.
“The State Department also turned over a new set of Clinton emails that were responsive to previous committee requests regarding Libya and Benghazi, but for some reason were not previously given to the committee under subpoena.
“Both of these revelations raise questions that the committee will now be considering carefully in the days ahead.”
