From Politico:

House Select Committee on Benghazi Republicans and the State Department have reached a tentative truce on document production, postponing what would likely have been a partisan showdown Wednesday, sources confirmed to POLITICO.

The committee has called off a much publicized grilling of Secretary of State John Kerry’s chief of staff, Jon Finer, over State’s pace of handing over Benghazi-related documents, in return for 5,000 pages worth of emails from Hillary Clinton’s top staff.

The production — which followed a “frank conversation” between Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) and Finer a few days ago — will be the second-largest batch of documents the committee has received from State since the panel was convened to investigate the 2012 terrorist attack in Libya that left four Americans dead.

From The New York Post:

The State Department has agreed to turn over 5,000 more pages of documents to the House of Representatives committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, the panel’s chairman said Monday.

The document dump, which is planned to take place Tuesday, represents a temporary truce in the ongoing heated negotiations between committee Republicans and the State Department over evidence and testimony.

In return for the documents, the committee has postponed its demand that Secretary of State John Kerry’s chief of staff, Jon Finer, submit to a public grilling over the department’s perceived stalling in handing over the Benghazi-related papers.

A longtime Clinton aide may be stonewalling a State Department request for private Benghazi-related emails despite a court order demanding she produce them.

Huma Abedin, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff at the State Department and current campaign staffer, is the only former aide to Secretary Hillary Clinton that has failed to turn over emails in response to a request from the State Department, court documents show.

Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s chief of staff at State, and Jake Sullivan, her deputy, submitted personal emails to the agency June 26 in response to letter sent by the agency earlier this year to Abedin, Mills and Sullivan.

From The Washington Times:

The House Select Committee on Benghazi released Wednesday the March 4 subpoena for former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails, refuting her claim in a national TV interview that she was never subpoenaed.

The subpoena was issued directly to Mrs. Clinton after lawmakers became aware that she exclusively used personal email and an email server kept in her home for official business as America’s top diplomat, which removed her correspondence form the custody of the State Department and shielded it form being accessed by congressional investigators or public requests under the Freedom of Information Act, according to the committee.
