Gowdy on FBI Announcement: Hillary ‘the Author of Her Own Destiny,’ ‘Need Not Look Further Than Herself’

Friday on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), the chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, reacted to a FBI Director James Comey reopening the criminal investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s email server she had while secretary of state.

Gowdy called Comey’s letter “cryptic,” but added he was going to let the FBI do their job. However, he suggested Clinton had no one to blame but herself.

“It’s pretty extraordinary because Secretary Clinton has an extraordinary email arrangement with herself,” Gowdy said. “And she’s the author of her own destiny. Everything that has happened since then, it is the natural probable consequence of deciding you’re going to have a rogue email system. So, I understand she’s upset and I understand she doesn’t like the timing but she need not look further than herself.”
