Trey Gowdy: Hillary Clinton is flat-out lying about us not subpoenaing her.

It’s pretty close to the quote, actually.

Really and truly:

The House Select Committee on Benghazi today released its March 4, 2015, subpoena to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in response to her inaccurate claim she had not been subpoenaed. The committee subpoenaed Clinton directly after it became aware of her exclusive use of personal email and a server and that the State Department was not the custodian of Clinton’s official record. The State Department failed to reveal this essential information to the Benghazi Committee or any other investigation into the Benghazi terrorist attacks until days before a media outlet was going to publish the information, meaning no investigation prior to the Benghazi Committee’s had access to the Secretary of State’s communications as part of its review.

“The committee has issued several subpoenas, but I have not sought to make them public,” said committee Chairman Trey Gowdy. “I would not make this one public now, but after Secretary Clinton falsely claimed the committee did not subpoena her, I have no choice in order to correct the inaccuracy. The committee immediately subpoenaed Clinton personally after learning the full extent of her unusual email arrangement with herself, and would have done so earlier if the State Department or Clinton had been forthcoming that State did not maintain custody of her records and only Secretary Clinton herself had her records when Congress first requested them.”

…What year does Hillary Clinton think it is, anyway?  – Because it’s 2015, and it’s really easy to release relevant evidence these days.

    It was during her husband’s time in office as well.
    But the media still has the largest megaphone. They played ball with the Clintons before. They will again.

    The lies are trumpeted, the corrections are buried, and the voters seem not to care at all.

      That last one .. I almost wish it was easier to explain by way of Dread Cthulu or Toxoplasma Gondii or .. *anything* other than the most likely cause .. neo-tribalism.
      .
      Given the social cost of defeating the original tribalism .. this does not bode well.

    I think HRC did this interview, now, because she’d seeing some defections to Sanders. Unpaid interns will do that to you. Unfortunately even though she chose a softball venue, being described as defensive, angry and evasive isn’t going to help her any. And blaming all her troubles on the VRWC might reassure the old Clintonistas but it won’t help her with anyone else. I tend to see this interview as a sign that all is not well in Hillaryland and I don’t think the interview helped any.
