Gowdy warned the former Secretary of State that the House could take steps to pressure her if she refuses.
The Politico reported:

The chairman of the House Committee on Benghazi is formally requesting Hillary Clinton turn over her private email server to a third party for a “neutral” investigation of its contents.

Rep. Trey Gowdy wrote to Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, Thursday asking the former secretary of state to make the server available to the State Department’s inspector general “or another neutral, detached, and independent arbiter.”

House Republicans have sought access to the server since the news earlier this month that Clinton used a private email for official purposes during her time at State and her documents were not stored within the State Department, but instead on a private server off-site.

Clinton regained control over those emails but turned over thousands of pages of documents to the State Department for release — except personal emails that Clinton said during a press conference focus on more mundane matters like yoga, her daughter’s wedding and family vacations.

But the exclusion of thousands of emails from the State Department’s review prompted questions from Republicans that Clinton may have withheld official correspondence from her time at State. Gowdy was one of the first Republicans to call for Clinton to make the server available for review — a request Speaker John Boehner joined earlier this week.
