The House committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi released a statement Wednesday saying the “American people have a right” to examine former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails.

“As Chairman Gowdy has noted, this is why former Secretary Clinton’s exclusive use of personal emails to conduct official U.S. government business is so problematic and raises significant issues for transparency,” committee spokesman Jamal Ware said. “The American people have a right to a full accounting of all the former Secretary’s emails, and the Committee is committed to working to uncover all the facts.”

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that the committee plans to issue subpoenas for the personal email accounts used by Clinton for official business while serving as secretary of state.

In the committee’s statement, Ware acknowledged that the committee “is in possession of records with two separate and distinct email addresses” used by Clinton.

“Without access to the relevant electronic information and stored data on the server—which was reportedly registered to her home—there is no way the Committee, or anyone else, can fully explain why the Committee uncovered two email addresses,” Ware said.
