It was only a matter of time before the House’s special committee on Benghazi got a piece of the action surrounding Hillary Clinton’s disputed private emails.
The Washington Post reported Wednesday afternoon that the panel is expected to subpoena the State Department for all emails related to the deadly 2012 attacks in Libya sent from clintonemail.com accounts, citing people familiar with the probe.
The expected subpoenas come on the heels of a New York Times report that suggested Clinton may have violated federal regulations by conducting all business during her tenure as secretary of state from a personal email account. A subsequent Associated Press report traced Clinton’s private email address at the clintonemail.com domain back to her own private email server registered under a pseudonym.
The special committee also is expected to subpoena emails related to the attacks from the personal accounts of any of Clinton’s staff, according to the Washington Post.
