A year after the House Select Committee on Benghazi made its initial request, the State Department finally handed over 1,100 pages of records.

These records contain include files, “stored on network folders used by senior employees within the Office of the Secretary, and emails from Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan, Huma Abedin, Susan Rice, and Patrick Kennedy,” according to the Select Committee.

Records received Friday were in response to requests made by the committee in November of 2014. When the requests were unanswered, subpoena’s were issued in March of 2015.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, Committee Chairman said:

“It is deplorable that it took over a year for these records to be produced to our committee, and that our Democrat colleagues never lifted a finger to help us get them. Shame on them and everyone else who has demanded this committee to give up before gathering all of the facts. This investigation is about a terrorist attack that killed four Americans, and it could have been completed a lot sooner if the administration had not delayed and delayed and delayed at every turn. For example, the committee still does not have records we requested over a year ago, and we are still waiting for some witnesses to be made available for interviews. As soon as possible, we will release our report and interview transcripts so everyone can see the evidence for themselves, and I’m confident the value and fairness of our investigation will then be abundantly clear to everyone.”

As to the point of the investigation:
