House Speaker John Boehner said Hillary Clinton “violated the law” by using a private server to conduct official business. The Ohio Republican indicated Thursday that if the former secretary of state doesn’t voluntarily hand it over, the full House may subpoena it.
“All options are on the table,” Boehner said on Bloomberg TV’s “With All Due Respect.” “If we need to do that, we may have to.”
The interview begins at about the 7:57 mark.
“The idea that [Clinton] was going to use her own server and do official business on it goes against every transparency issue that the president likes to tout,” Boehner said.
“At some point, they just can’t ignore the fact that there a lot of public documents on this server that the American people have a right to see.”
The speaker indicated that Clinton should voluntarily deliver her server to the State Department’s inspector general, who could then “sort out what’s official, what’s private,” especially as it relates to the 2012 attack on the U.S. foreign mission in Benghazi, Libya.
“It’s important for the American people to know the truth about what happened in Benghazi,” Boehner said. “It’s important to know what was going on at the State Department before, during and after the events that occurred in Libya.”
Boehner referred to the Clintons as “good public servants.”
“But there are a lot of questions that are being raised,” he said. “And at some point, they are going to have to answer the questions.”
People took to social media to voice their frustration at the process.

Liberals saw it differently, though.

If it’s going to be done, it will take a full House vote to do it. The House select committee on Benghazi lacks the authority to subpoena Clinton’s server.
