House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Sunday defended a move by House Republicans to urge Hillary Clinton to turn over her private email server to an independent third party for investigation.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), chairman of the House Committee on Benghazi, sent a letter to Clinton’s attorney on Thursday asking that she make her email server available to either the State Department inspector general or another independent party.
