Trey Gowdy on Wednesday released a statement lauding "congressional oversight" as the driving force behind the State Department Inspector General's report faulting Hillary Clinton's email practices.

Gowdy, chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi, wrote that his committee was the "first and only one" that fought to obtain the emails.

"There is only one reason why these facts are now available to the American people: thorough congressional oversight, including the Select Committee on Benghazi's insistence that any truly comprehensive review of what happened before, during, and after the 2012 terrorist attacks in Libya must include public records from the former Secretary of State and her senior staff," he said in a statement. 

Gowdy accused President Barack Obama of stalling that caused delays equivalent to more than 10,000 days.

"If anyone wonders why the investigation is not yet complete, the malfeasance and numerous problems identified in this report are Exhibit A, and prove the committee has faced serial delays from day one at the hands of public officials who sought to avoid transparency and accountability," he wrote.

A State Department audit released Wednesday faulted Clinton and previous secretaries of state for poorly managing email and other computer information and slowly responding to new cybersecurity risks.
