WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of a House committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, says he wants to interview Hillary Rodham Clinton by May 1.
Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina says the recorded interview would help the committee better understand decisions she made related to the creation, maintenance, retention, and ultimately deletion of public records — namely her emails. Gowdy said Friday that the former secretary of state had wiped her private email server “clean” and permanently deleted all emails from it.
Clinton, a likely Democratic presidential candidate, used a private email account and server during her tenure at State. She has refused Gowdy’s request to turn over her server for an independent review.
Her lawyer says Clinton has turned over to the State Department all work-related emails.
