State Dept. can’t find 15 emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server

THE STATE DEPARTMENT said Thursday that it cannot locate 15 work-related emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server released this week by the select committee probing the 2012 Benghazi attacks, a revelation that committee chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., right, described as “significant and troubling.”

The emails consist of more in a series of intelligence reports passed to her by longtime political confidant Sidney Blumenthal, officials told The Associated Press.

At the least, the existence of the emails turned over by Blumenthal but not by Clinton directly contradicts Clinton’s news conference in March in which she claimed that all work emails from her personal server were turned over to the State Department.

The revelation will also raise further questions about the presidential hopeful’s use of a personal email account and server when she served as secretary of state, as well as the decision to wipe the server.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi, called the revelations “significant and troubling.”

“This confirms doubts about the completeness of Clinton’s self-selected public record and raises serious questions about her decision to erase her personal server—especially before it could be analyzed by an independent, neutral third party arbiter,” Gowdy said.
