(Newser) – Republicans hoping that Hillary Clinton's email server still has the 30,000 or so emails she deleted after deeming them to be personal are apparently out of luck. Clinton's attorney informed a House panel investigating the Benghazi attack that they no longer exist on the home server she used while secretary of state, reports Reuters. The Republican chairman of the committee, Trey Gowdy, criticized Clinton's decision to "wipe her server clean" and said Clinton would eventually have to explain herself to Congress.

In her response to the panel, Clinton also rejected the idea of allowing a third party to analyze the server, reports McClatchy News, which adds that It's unclear whether the emails could still be retrieved through high-tech techniques. A spokesperson said Clinton is "ready and willing to come and appear herself for a hearing open to the American public.” And the panel's top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, said it's time for Republicans to "stop this political charade," reports the Hill.
