WASHINGTON, DC – Kansas Fourth District Congressman Mike Pompeo Friday responded to news that the U.S State Department was unable to find in its records all or part of 15 work-related emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server that were released this week by a House panel investigating the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya.
In a news release, Pompeo said, “The State Department has now confirmed that former Secretary Clinton failed to turn over documents she had related to Benghazi and Libya. She did not want the American people to know the truth,” said Pompeo, who serves on the Select Committee on Benghazi.
When asked about the discrepancy, Nick Merrill, a Clinton campaign spokesman, said, “She has turned over 55,000 pages of materials to the State Department, including all emails in her possession from Mr. Blumenthal.”
Pompeo said, “If Sidney Blumenthal had not retained copies of these documents and provided them to the committee, Americans would never have known about the scope of the private, unvetted intelligence that Clinton was receiving about conditions on the ground in Libya.
Pompeo is a member of the Select Committee on Benghazi. He also serves on the House Intelligence Committee.
