Gowdy Grills State Department Over Clinton Emails

[jwp-video n=”1″]

Amid a renewed focus on compliance with Freedom of Information Act requests, and one day after House Republicans threatened State Department funding over the slow disclosure of documents, Rep. Trey Gowdy again laid into the department at an Oversight hearing Wednesday, echoing calls previously made for more transparency. While grilling the department over former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal email server, Gowdy went one step further, asking the State Department’s chief FOIA officer, Joyce A. Barr, if President Barack Obama used a private email server. “Because if you’re going to pursue the theory of convenience, I can’t really imagine a busier person on the globe than President Obama,” Gowdy said. “Did he have his own personal server?” “I have no knowledge,” Barr said.
