Mr. Chaffetz (R., Utah) said his committee would by Friday formally request answers to a series of questions from the State Department and Mrs. Clinton about the former secretary and presumptive 2016 Democratic presidential candidate’s email. The committee will seek, among other things, access to the electronic versions of Mrs. Clinton’s emails, not merely the printed copies she said she submitted to the State Department.
Mr. Chaffetz, in an interview, did not specify whether he would seek electronic copies of all of Mrs. Clinton’s email correspondence as secretary of state, or whether he would request a subset of her emails.
“I’d rather not have to subpoena her, but if she’s fully cooperative there wouldn’t be a need,” he said. “Are we prepared to do so if necessary? I suppose so. We’re going to get to the bottom of this.”
