Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Clinton Libya Emails Withheld from Benghazi Committee

Saying it turns out some of Clinton’s emails about the disaster in Libya were withheld from the Benghazi Committee is like saying birds fly; duh.

But since Team Clinton always hides behind the mantra “you mugs never proved anything,” here is some proof that her private email accounts and personal server, combined with her State Department’s acquiescence with the scam, tried to hide information.

House GOP Benghazi investigators discovered 60 new Libya communications between Sidney Blumenthal and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a congressional source told POLITICO on Monday, suggesting either the State Department or the 2016 Democratic presidential contender withheld correspondence the panel had requested.

The House Select Committee on Benghazi had long-ago subpoenaed Blumenthal’s Libya emails. And on Friday, the longtime Clinton operative — who is set to testify before investigators behind closed doors Tuesday morning — finally handed over 120 pages worth of new Libya- and Benghazi-related emails.

The thing is that the Blumenthal emails, which he reluctantly turned over himself, had never been revealed by Clinton as part of her tranche of work-related messages, nor by the State Department has part of its official records. Had Clinton used a standard email regime, the Blumenthal emails would have been archived along with other records as a matter of policy.

“These emails were not previously produced to the Committee or released to the public, and they will help inform tomorrow’s deposition,” panel Chairman Trey Gowdy said in a statement. “We are prepared to release these emails.”

In the meantime, he’s wondering why the Committee didn’t have the documents in the first place.

Clinton has said she and her team gave all her work-related correspondence over to State, which was then tasked with going through the emails and giving the panel relevant messages. Department officials turned up about 300 emails related to the attack on the Benghazi diplomatic compound that left four Americans dead.

Since these new messages were not among those 300 emails, the question is whether Clinton had turned over all the new emails to State and State did not provide them, or whether Clinton failed to hand over the correspondence.

A State Department spokesman simply claimed the agency gave the panel what it asked for.

The emails include information about weapons that were circulating in Libya and about the security situation in Benghazi in the year and a half before the attacks. The committee has asked the State Department and Clinton several times in the past year for emails from her and other department officials about “weapons located or found in” Libya and about the decision to open and maintain a diplomatic mission in Benghazi.
