Pompeo on State’s release of new Clinton Benghazi emails

The State Department has now confirmed that it failed to release all of the emails from former Secretary Clinton related to Benghazi and Libya. After three years of stonewalling, diversion, and failure to comply with requests by our committee, I am hopeful that this new production will finally give us the answers we need about the surrounding events that led to the tragic death of four Americans in Benghazi, writes United States Representative Mike Pompeo, a Republican who represents the Kansas fourth district.

Pompeo on State’s Release of New Clinton Benghazi Emails

September 25, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Mike Pompeo (R-KS) today released the following statement after the State Department announced that it has produced a small number of emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server related to the 2012 terror attack in Benghazi Libya that resulted in the deaths of four Americans.  The State Department today informed the House Select Committee on Benghazi, of which Pompeo is a member, that it would turn these “new” Clinton emails over to the committee, among them a small number of Benghazi-related emails that the State missed during its previous review.

Pompeo said: “The State Department has now confirmed that it failed to release all of the emails from former Secretary Clinton related to Benghazi and Libya. After three years of stonewalling, diversion, and failure to comply with requests by our committee, I am hopeful that this new production will finally give us the answers we need about the surrounding events that led to the tragic death of four Americans in Benghazi. Three years is too long, and Clinton needs come clean with our committee and the American people.

“I, along with other Republican members of our committee, remain committed to the mission we have been given: to do all that we can to obtain the truth about the events surrounding this tragic event and to share all of the facts with the families of the deceased and with the American people. We still have brave Americans operating at the tip of the spear keeping us all safe — we owe them nothing less than that effort.”

Pompeo is a member of the Select Committee on Benghazi. He also serves on the House Intelligence Committee.
