Gowdy To Hillary ➠ Turn Over The Server Or Else!
Sounds like if she doesn’t turn it over voluntarily, they will go to the full House, and compel her.
Via Fox News:
The chairman of the congressional committee probing the Benghazi terror attacks has formally asked that Hillary Clinton turn over her personal server — warning that the House could take steps to pressure her if she refuses.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., sent a letter, released Friday, to Clinton’s attorney requesting that the former secretary of state “relinquish” the server to a “neutral, detached and independent third-party” for review.
The server has become a point of controversy after she admitted to exclusively using a private email account and a personal server while secretary — yet insisted her server would remain private, though some lawmakers want access to it to ensure she’s turned over all official emails during her tenure.
Gowdy’s letter suggested that Clinton could turn the server over to the State Department inspector general for review. He said it’s important for a third party to look over the contents to ensure any public documents are released.
“Her arrangement places her as the sole arbiter of what she considers private and what is beyond the view of the public,” Gowdy said in the letter addressed to her Washington attorney Friday.
One source told Fox News that Gowdy’s committee does not have the statutory authority to subpoena the server itself — only witnesses and documents. However, the full House does, should it escalate to that point.
At the end of his letter, Gowdy asked for a response by April 3. He pointedly warned that if Clinton won’t comply, he will tell House Speaker John Boehner so he can use the “full powers” of the House to take the “necessary steps.” More
