BREAKING: Trey Gowdy Is Now Combing Hillary’s Personal Emails As Latest Clinton Scandal Widens

BREAKING: Trey Gowdy Is Now Hot On Hillary’s Email Trail As Latest Clinton Scandal Widens

As hard as her allies and associates are desperately trying to contain and minimize the latest Hillary scandal, the situation for the former secretary of state continues to worsen.

For the second day in a row, Hillary Clinton’s routine practice of using her personal, private email account when she headed up the U.S. State Department is the subject of a sharply negative report in The New York Times.

Under the headline, “Using Private Email, Hillary Clinton Thwarted Record Requests,” the Times article calls out the former Obama administration official for her defiant lack of cooperation with the congressional probe of the Benghazi attack that left four Americans dead.

According to the report, Mrs. Clinton’s exclusive and highly questionable use of her personal email account to conduct official State Department business hampered the Benghazi investigation as Congress tried to obtain relevant documents.

“The State Department had not searched the email account of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton because she had maintained a private account, which shielded it from such searches, department officials acknowledged on Tuesday.”

Now, Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy, who chairs the Special House Committee appointed to get to the bottom of the Benghazi scandal, says he will dig even deeper and push even harder to obtain Hillary Clinton’s personal emails related to the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. compound in Libya. Via The Blaze:

“The State Department does not have all of the former Secretary’s emails on its servers, only she has the complete record,” [Gowdy’s] statement said.

“And the committee is going to have to go to her, her lawyers and her email providers to ensure we have access to everything the American people are entitled to know.”

As Gowdy promises to press Mrs. Clinton to disclose all her email communications pertaining to Benghazi, it turns out that the server apparently handling the former secretary of state’s account was run by an Internet service provider registered to the Clintons’ New York home. As Fox News reports:

“The computer server that transmitted and received Hillary Clinton’s emails — on a private account she used exclusively for official business when she was secretary of state — traced back to an Internet service registered to her family’s home in Chappaqua, New York, according to Internet records reviewed by The Associated Press.”

Fox News notes that operating and controlling her own server would have provided Hillary Clinton with a critical shield of sorts — legal protection against attempts to obtain her private emails through government or private subpoenas.

“The highly unusual practice of a Cabinet-level official physically running her own email would have given Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, impressive control over limiting access to her message archives.”

Western Journalism has reported that Gowdy intends to call Mrs. Clinton to testify before the Select Committee on Benghazi, but he doesn’t want to have her appear before his investigators have access to all her relevant emails.
