House Speaker John Boehner said Hillary Clinton should turn over her email server she used while serving as Secretary of State, but did not direct Congress to subpoena the records.
"The American people deserve all the facts," the Ohio representative said Tuesday on Capitol Hill, according to Politico
"That’s why it’s so important for Secretary Clinton to turn over her personal server to a neutral third party. That is the fairest way to make sure we have all of the documents that belong to the public, and, ultimately, all of the facts."
The New York Times revealed in early March that Clinton used a private email address and server to conduct both the business of the Secretary of State as well as her personal affairs. At a press conference last week, Clinton said she handed over printouts of roughly 30,000 emails to the State Department this year, and had deleted roughly the same number she said pertained only to her private life.
Several critics from both parties say Clinton willingly violated department protocols to shield herself from possible future investigations. The Associated Press and Gawker.com have both filed suit against the department for failure to comply with multiple Freedom of Information Act requests they made during her tenure.
Boehner said that Congress' Benghazi committee and the Oversight panel will continue to investigate Clinton.
"The Benghazi Committee is the committee that found this personal email usage. The Benghazi Committee is focused on getting the facts on what happened with regard to Benghazi. The Government Reform Committee worked on the Federal Open Records Act and they will continue their work on that," he told reporters.
"There is nothing, no changes that have been made about how we’re approaching dealing with these documents."
