Trey Gowdy: Hillary Wiped Email Server Between October and Dec. 2014

By    |   Monday, 30 Mar 2015 09:16 PM

Former secretary of State Hillary Clinton permanently deleted all her emails from her private server between October and December 2014, Rep. Trey Gowdy told Fox News.

Gowdy, who chairs the House Select Committee on Benghazi, said Monday on Fox News Channel's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren" that Clinton wiped her server sometime between October 28 and mid-December.

That would fall not long after the latest effort by Congress to get Clinton's email records began.

"We know the letter from the State Department went to the prior secretaries of state on October the 28th, 2014," Gowdy said. "And her lawyer says some time in the fall of 2014 she decided not to keep those emails, and the fall would extend, I guess, into the winter solstice in mid-December."

Gowdy said that the emails have been sought as part of the Benghazi investigation as far back as the weeks after the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans on September 11, 2012.

Clinton says she turned over all work-related emails to the State Department, then wiped the hard drive, which she has said she will not turn over for inspection.

Gowdy said that since no investigative body has access to her now-deleted emails, Congress will call on Clinton "soon" to testify privately about them.

"I need to ask what she did and when she did it and, more importantly, why she did it," he said.

That talk will be separate from Gowdy's own effort to have her testify about Benghazi, he said, and may be performed by a different committee.

"I'm not looking to enlarge the jurisdiction of our committee," Gowdy said. "Four murdered Americans is more than enough for me."
