The House Select Committee on Benghazi has subpoenaed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for all communications related to its investigation.

The committee said in a statement:

“The Select Committee on Benghazi today issued subpoenas for all communications of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton related to Libya and to the State Department for other individuals who have information pertinent to the investigation. The Committee also has issued preservation letters to internet firms informing them of their legal obligation to protect all relevant documents.”

Earlier this evening, Greta Van Susteren spoke to select committee chairman Trey Gowdy on whether he would issue subpoenas – and then he did.

“We’re gonna gain access to them, or do our best to gain access to them,” he said of Clinton’s emails.

Gowdy said that many lawmakers have work and private email accounts, but none of them have “just private email.”

Gowdy said that the State Department had to ask Clinton for its public records back.

“If she was doing it the right way […] why did we have to ask for the records back?” he asked.
