(Newser) – Hillary Clinton's email trouble keeps getting worse. A House committee investigating the US response to the 2012 Benghazi attack plans to subpoena Clinton's personal emails from her days as secretary of state, reports the Washington Post. The move follows revelations that Clinton bypassed government email and used personal email—and her own server, no less—to conduct official business while in the post.

The House Select Committee on Benghazi wants all emails from related to the attack. “Do you really believe that the secretary of state never reviewed classified information on her e-mail?” asks Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah. Clinton herself didn't address the issue during a speech last night, and Politico reports that all signs "pointed toward a protracted legal morass as advocacy groups, the courts and Congress try to determine whether Clinton’s practice denied them access to critical information."
