Former Congressman Opens Up About Hillary, What Really Happened

“She completely disregarded every one of my subpoenas.” Former congressman Jason Chaffetz (below) (R-UT) told George Washington University’s “College Republicans” group earlier this week, as he specifically highlighted his role in the Hillary Clinton E-mail server investigation.
A U.S. Air Force garrison had the jets gassed up and ready for take-off from Stuttgart, Germany when the American Embassy in Benghazi, Libya came under terrorist attack.
They were “expressly forbidden from engaging in a rescue operation until after several U.S. diplomats, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed,” Chaffetz recalls.
After the explosions died down and the few survivors were safely back on U.S. soil, “they had their security clearance stripped and were denied access to speak with any congressmen on the matter.”

There could only be one reason. “It is obvious that the State Department did not want these folks speaking about any classified information with the House Oversight Committee.”
As chairman of that committee, Chaffetz sent then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, “several letters asking her to preserve all emails regarding Libya and the Benghazi attack.”
When it came time for Hillary and the State Department to cough up all the emails that were supposed to be saved, they were gone.
“The absence of numerous purported emails on the attack indicated a potential cover-up on part of the Clinton state department to deceive the American voters in the lead-up to the 2016 election.”
By March of 2015, it was obvious that Hillary Clinton had sanitized all the emails from her “secret server.” Her lawyer told a special House Benghazi Select Committee “there’s nothing left to search.”
That is when Congress started asking, “Did Clinton destroy documents that were under subpoena?”
Only nine days after the embassy attack, Rep. Chaffetz wrote to Hillary asking for, “all information related to the attack on the consulate.”
He specifically wanted, “all analyses, whether classified or unclassified, on the security situation leading up to the Benghazi attack.” He made it crystal clear “the committee wanted everything.”

After months of dragging their feet, the State Department agreed, instead of turning the materials over, they would be made available for inspection. Committee investigators were forced to visit the records in a specially secured room.
They waded through over 25,000 pages of documents before they realized that Hillary’s emails were not in the pile. There also weren’t many emails in the stack from “Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin, Philippe Reines, Jake Sullivan and others.”
The House Select Committee on Benghazi managed to grab a small handful of less than ten emails either to or from Hillary. They had a previously unknown address:
The Benghazi committee soon were pouring over 850 pages from two different accounts on the same server.
The State Department claimed that was all there are. By the time Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) requested a neutral third party examination of the hardware, congress learned “its contents have been destroyed.”
Anything that was on that server that wasn’t turned over through the State Department was destroyed illegally in defiance of Rep Chaffetz’ subpoena.
“An engineer at Platte River Networks, the company responsible for maintaining the Secretary’s third personal email server, deleted Secretary Clinton’s email archives in March of 2015, despite knowing they were subject to preservation orders and a congressional subpoena,” a letter Chaffetz mailed to the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia says.
“The Department should investigate and determine whether Secretary Clinton or her employees and contractors violated statutes that prohibit destruction of records, obstruction of congressional inquiries, and concealment or cover up of evidence material to a congressional investigation.”
“Remember, there are two email systems at the State Department. You don’t just simply get a classified email and then whoops, I forwarded to the wrong person.”
“You have to go to great lengths to take it off that system, or summarize what you saw, and put it on the non-classified system. So how Sidney Blumenthal and others are integrated into this really still, we need to get to the truth.”
Between July 5 the end of September, 2016, more than 70 subpoenas and letters were issued when James Comey, the Director of the FBI, concluded there would not be any charges against Hillary.
“These subpoenas and letters relate to a wide range of investigations conducted by House Republicans against Secretary Clinton over the past three months, including her personal email account, the Clinton Foundation, and a number of other issues.”
“She’s not getting a clean slate,” Chaffetz vowed in the last days of October, just before the nation went to the polls.
“We’ve got document destruction. We’ve got their own rogue system. We’ve got classified information out the door. We’ve got their foundation doing who knows what. I mean, it took them four years just to release her schedule.”

The Way I See It.........all good things come to those that wait. Retribution is in the wind.
