“I want the public to see my email,” she said. That isn’t true.
“I opted for convenience to use my personal email account … because I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for my personal emails instead of two,” she said. That isn’t true.
“[Sidney Blumenthal] sent me unsolicited emails,” she said. That isn’t true.
“I … provided all my emails that could possibly be work-related …. We went through a thorough process to identify all of my work- related emails …. I have absolute confidence that everything that could be in any way connected to work is now in the possession of the State Department,” she said. That isn’t true.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton withheld from the State Department several emails related to Libya, the State Department confirmed Thursday night — calling into question her insistence that she has handed over her complete public record.
The 2016 Democratic front-runner did not hand over 15 exchanges with longtime Clinton ally Sidney Blumenthal on the security situation in the Middle Eastern nation. The existence of the new correspondence only came to light days ago after Republicans subpoenaed the former Clinton White House adviser’s records and he turned them over.
“This confirms doubts about the completeness of Clinton’s self-selected public record and raises serious questions about her decision to erase her personal server—especially before it could be analyzed by an independent, neutral third party arbiter,” said Rep. Trey Gowdy, Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi.
The Committee has previously pointed out that there are several inexplicable gaps in Clinton’s email record. What emails are still missing from these gaps?
The gaps represent periods of time when, according to previous statements made by Hillary Clinton and the State Department, no Libya-related emails existed.
The yellow dots represent Libya-related emails obtained from Hillary Clinton's aide Sidney Blumenthal that fall in those gaps, which proves Clinton withheld work-related emails.
The Select Committee's document request covered the period of January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2012.
