• Trey Gowdy Summons Clinton to Testify on Emails and Benghazi

    Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, sent a letter to Hillary Clinton’s lawyers Thursday requesting that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton testify at a public hearing next month.

    Gowdy said he wants Clinton to testify the week of May 18 and again before June 18.  The first hearing would address Clinton’s use of private emails, and the second on the September 2012 attacks that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.

    “With her cooperation and that of the State Department and (Obama) administration, Secretary Clinton could be done with the Benghazi Committee before the Fourth of July,” Gowdy said in a statement.

    David Kendall, Clinton’s lawyer and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), the committee’s ranking member, agreed to have the former first lady appear before the Committee last November, prior to revelations that Clinton used a private email address for all State Department business and operated a personal server.

    “Thank goodness the Committee did not schedule Secretary Clinton’s appearance when some asked us to, or else that hearing would have been woefully and now obviously premature,” Gowdy wrote.

    Gowdy also said that the committee is willing to travel to Clinton “if that would make the scheduling of the interview easier for the Secretary.”

    The letter contained over 100 sample questions for Hillary Clinton regarding the use of her private email account, some of which are below.
