Rep. Tammy Duckworth openly questioned Hillary Clinton’s claim that she did not send classified information on her personal email server as secretary of state.
Duckworth, who sits on the House Select Committee on Benghazi, said she plans to “hold her accountable” as they continue to search for relevant emails.
“I’m going to hold her accountable,” the Illinois Democrat said. “I think that all of her official emails in the State Department should be released, not just to the members of committee, like myself, but to all of the American public. Transparency is the best policy.”
“All of her official emails should be released to the American people,” Duckworth said. “They should be able to read them all. There are going to be some that are classified and those that are classified—then show those to a bipartisan group of members of Congress. We all have the clearance to look at them.”
“She needs to come before the Benghazi Committee and testify as well,” Duckworth added.
The statements from the Congresswoman, who also served in Iraq and lost both of her legs, contradict Clinton’s claims during her infamous press conference where she responded to the email saga she has become embroiled in.
On Monday, Duckworth announced her candidacy for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by GOP Sen. Mark Kirk, who elected as part of the 2010 GOP wave.
