The House Select Committee on Benghazi has finally received thousands of emails on the deadly attack — documents it requested from the State Department in 2014, The Washington Examiner reports.

The State Department had "ignored" the requests for the nearly 3,900 emails for months, the newspaper added.

The new emails focus on correspondence from Ambassador Chris Stevens, who died along with three other Americans in the 2012 terror attack, and Patrick Kennedy, the State Department's undersecretary for management.
  
The Examiner said that under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Kennedy was accused of covering up internal security probes that could make the agency look bad.

In addition, Republicans on the House Foreign Affairs Committee believe Kennedy may have skirted blame for decisions he made in Libya because "he had a hand" in selecting members of the Accountability Review Board, The Examiner reports.

In October, the Benghazi committee interviewed Clinton — front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination — in its ongoing investigation into security errors that may have led to the terror attack and alleged cover-ups that occurred afterwards.

It is now conducting private interviews involving a number of unidentified officials, The Examiner said.
