If former secretary of State Hillary Clinton refuses to turn over her server to an independent party, the House Select Committee on Benghazi will ask her to testify about it, committee chairman Trey Gowdy told Fox News.
Appearing Monday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File,"
Gowdy said he plans to give Clinton the opportunity to turn her personal email server over to a neutral independent arbiter, such as a federal judge, an archivist, or an inspector general.
"It's not just my committee. It's House Armed Services, it's Foreign Affairs, it's FOIA [Freedom of Information Act] requests," Gowdy said. "These are public records, and if they're not personal, if they're public, then she's not entitled to be the sole arbiter of who gets what when."
Clinton has come under fire for using a personal email server and email address for all her communications as secretary of state. Critics say it is impossible to know whether she has turned over all her work emails since she owns the server where they are housed.
Gowdy said if Clinton doesn't turn over the server, "then we will invite Mrs. Clinton to come see the committee twice and not once. And the first the first time will be to discuss her email arrangement."
