Remember, Grandma has told us repeatedly she wanted all the emails out there and had nothing to hide. Except for 30,000 emails she deletd and this latest batch. Otherwise she’s been totally forthcoming. Oh, and she won’t be taking questions from anyone.
A former adviser to Hillary Clinton has turned over around 60 previously undisclosed emails related to Libya and the deadly 2012 siege in Benghazi, according to the leader of the panel investigating the assault.
Sidney Blumenthal has given the House Select Committee on Benghazi “nearly 60 new emails regarding Libya and Benghazi,” panel chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said in a statement late Monday night.
The roughly 120 pages of messages between Blumenthal and Clinton were produced late Friday in response to a request by the select committee.
“These emails were not previously produced to the Committee or released to the public, and they will help inform tomorrow’s deposition,” Gowdy said.
He said the panel is “prepared to release these emails, but where practicable our internal processes include consultation with” Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), the panel’s top Democrat, before release.
If Cummings agrees to make the newfound messages public “we will add to the former Secretary’s public email record and release these shortly,” according to Gowdy. “If not, we will do so after the required five days has passed.”
The revelation comes the day before Blumenthal is due to give what could end up being a daylong, private deposition before the 12-member panel about what he knew of the events surrounding the attacks that left four Americans dead.
The select committee is also expected to press Blumenthal, who was in Libya seeking business with the transitional government at the time, about the personal email server Clinton used while serving as Secretary of State.
Last month the State Department released nearly 300 emails from Clinton’s private email server that showed she received about 25 memos from Blumenthal regarding Libya while she was secretary of State, including one that blamed the Benghazi attack on a “sacrilegious” Internet video depicting the prophet Mohammad.
The next day Blumenthal sent another memo to Clinton citing “sensitive sources” who believed it was an act of terrorism.
Weird how Grandma didn’t produce these, huh?
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.
The congressional source did not know 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.
Seems like criminal behavior.
Meanwhile, why do you haters continue to harass this loving grandmother?
