Johnson Supports Smith Subpoenas for Information From Hillary Clinton’s Private Email Server Companies

WASHINGTON — Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, signed the cover letter which accompanied the subpoena issued today by U.S Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), chairman of the U.S. House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, to three companies that provided software and services to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that played a role in maintaining her private email server.

“I strongly support Chairman Smith’s decision to subpoena the three companies, which is why I co-signed the cover letter accompanying each subpoena,” said Johnson. “The companies have direct and unique knowledge of her private server and email account. The information being sought is a crucial step in bringing greater transparency to Secretary Clinton’s ‘extremely careless’ — I would call it dangerously reckless and grossly negligent — email practices. I hope the information we will obtain will inform policy changes that can prevent similar misconduct in the future.”
