• IT’S ON: House To Investigate Hillary’s Secret Emails

    Another investigation into how Hillary Clinton handled her email communication while working as Obama’s secretary of state may be launched by the House of Representatives, according to ABC News.

    GOP House members say Speaker John Boehner is expected to announce a House investigation of Clinton’s email scandal.

    After admitting to having a private server in her New York home and deleting 31,000 “personal” emails after she left office, Hillary Clinton’s camp continued to assert that they took the necessary steps that led them to believe which emails were not “personal” and thus could be deleted:

    1. All emails Clinton received from a .gov or state.gov account while she was Secretary of State were searched for;

    2. Of the remaining emails, 100 State Department and other U.S. government officials’ names she would likely have had dealings with were searched for;

    3. The emails were filtered by sender and recipient to “account for non-obvious or non-recognizable email addresses or misspellings or other idiosyncrasies.”

    4. Terms such as “Benghazi” and “Libya” were searched for. After that process, a roughly even split was found; there were 30,490 emails deemed work-related and 31,830 emails considered “private and personal.”

    Hillary Clinton “doesn’t get to decide what is purely personal and what is public,” said South Carolina GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy. “I just can’t trust her lawyers to make the determination that the public is getting everything they’re entitled to,” Gowdy said Sunday.

    “The House as an institution, may be forced to go to court to try to get access to that,” he added.

    Boehner’s separate House investigation’s announcement is imminent.
