STATE DEPT. TO SEND BENGHAZI COMMITTEE NEARLY 1000 CLINTON EMAILS

What is she hiding?

The State Department announced Friday that it is sending the House Benghazi committee nearly 1,000 emails from Hillary Clinton’s private account — a batch three times larger than the set of Clinton messages her former agency sent to Capitol Hill back in May.

A senior State Department official said the decision to provide the new set of about 925 emails is linked to Clinton’s expected testimony to the panel next month and to a clearer understanding by State officials that Congressional investigators want all Libya-related records, not just those involving security issues related to the deadly 2012 attack on U.S. facilities in Benghazi.

“We recognize the potential that an advanced look at Libya-related materials may be beneficial to the Benghazi Committee as it prepares for its hearing with the former [secretary] on October 22nd. To accommodate that, the Department undertook another review of the emails provided by former Secretary Clinton to provide such Libya-related emails, and to ensure all Benghazi-related materials have been provided to the Committee,” said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
