House Speaker John Boehner sat down for an interview with Bloomberg Politics recently to discuss the scandal regarding Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server to send and receive official emails during her time as secretary of state.
“She violated the law,” Boehner insisted, “and the idea that she was going to use her own server and do official business on it goes against every transparency issue that the president likes to tout.”
When asked what policy she violated, he responded that she would have had to “sign a sheet when she got there that she was going to preserve all of these records. At some point, they just can’t ignore the fact that there are a lot of public documents on this server that the American people have a right to see; and we believe it is time for Mrs. Clinton to turn that server and all its documents over to the IG – the inspector general – at the State Department.”
He confirmed that, if Clinton refuses to cooperate, “all options are on the table” – including a House subpoena.
“It’s important for the American people to know the truth about what happened in Benghazi,” he said, “and it’s important to know what was going on at the State Department before, during, and after the events that occurred in Libya.”
Boehner’s palpable irritation dissipated somewhat, however, when he was asked whether Bill and Hillary Clinton are “ethically and morally fit to return to the White House.”
He replied that the Clintons are “good public servants” and “good people,” acknowledging that “there are questions that have to be answered.”
Do you think Hillary Clinton should release the contents of her server? Let us know in the comments section below.
