Gowdy: Clinton E-mails Prove Need for Benghazi Probe

The special House committee investigating the 2012 terror attacks in Benghazi, Libya, on Tuesday asked that former secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal e-mails be preserved as part of the committee’s investigation.

Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said panel members knew Clinton used personal e-mail accounts during her tenure but didn’t learn until recently that all of her State Department business was conducted outside normal government e-mail channels.

The New York Times reported Tuesday that Clinton avoided official e-mail accounts and may have broken federal rules about maintaining government records.
