And it begins: House Republicans are already warming up subpoenas for Hillary Clinton's emails from her time as Secretary of State. America's New Congress(tm). Same old idiocy.
A House investigative committee issued subpoenas late Wednesday afternoon to the State Department, seeking a deeper look into former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton’s nearly exclusive use of personal e-mails to do her official business during her tenure, the committee confirmed Wednesday.
The House Select Committee on Benghazi, which first discovered Clinton’s use of a personal e-mail based on a home server in its inquiry into a fatal 2012 terrorist attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, is asking for all e-mails related to the attack from all Clintonemail.com accounts and any other staff members’ personal accounts.
“The Select Committee on Benghazi today issued subpoenas for all communications of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton related to Libya and to the State Department for other individuals who have information pertinent to the investigation,” according to a statement by committee spokesman Jamal Ware. “The Committee also has issued preservation letters to internet firms informing them of their legal obligation to protect all relevant documents.”
The move escalates the panel’s conflict with Clinton and could complicate her expected run for president.
Which, of course, is the point. But millions in taxpayer dollars will be spent and thousands of man hours wasted on nothing, just like that last two years. We all knew there was going to be two more of this stuff.
But hey America, you voted for this in 2014. Or didn't give a damn enough to vote for it to stop, didn't you?
