White House: Hillary Clinton Acting As ‘Private Citizen’ In Benghazi Investigation

The White House reacted to the news today that Chairman Trey Gowdy of the House Select Committee On Benghazi requested an interview with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton regarding the use of her private email address and her home server.

During the White House press briefing today, Earnest said that the issue was now in the hands of Clinton and her lawyers as well as the leaders of the congressional committee.

“I don’t have an opinion on it,” Earnest said, when asked about the request by reporters, reminding them that the former Secretary of State was acting as a “private citizen” now.

“Ultimately if the committee makes a request and Secretary Clinton in her capacity as a private citizen decides that she wants to once again go above and beyond in terms of trying to provide them with information and access then that would be a decision for her to make,” he said.

He confirmed that the White House believed it had “done enough” to clarify the nature of her communications.
