For Lack of Emails, Benghazi Committee Delays Clinton’s Visit

The House Select Committee on Benghazi delayed having Hillary Clinton testify before the committee because the State Department still hasn’t handed over Clinton’s emails. In the back and forth between the committee and Clinton’s lawyer, Clinton was penciled in to appear next week. But Chairman Trey Gowdy pushed the appearance back. “I am not going to ask my members, if they are going to have one opportunity to have a constructive conversation with Secretary Clinton, I am certainly not going to ask my members to have that conversation without the documents they need,” he said. The ranking Democrat on the committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings, believes the delay is politically motivated, possibly as a way to hold the hearing just as the presidential primaries heat up. But through insisting the committee receives a complete cannon of documents, Gowdy has accomplished what no other committee investigating the Benghazi attack has done before: overturning every stone. Now, the committee is left to contend with State. On April 30, State gave Congress access to its documents gathered during the State Department’s review of the attack — two years after Congress asked for them. Obstruction and delay? It’s only because the Left makes it so.
