Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D., Ill.) said she does not believe Hillary Clinton’s claim that she did not email classified information through her private account and server.

"All of her official emails should be released to the American people," Duckworth said. "They should be able to read them all. There are going to be some that are classified and those that are classified—then show those to a bipartisan group of members of Congress."

Duckworth contradicted Clinton’s statement in a press conference weeks ago that classified information was not compromised on her server because she never emailed classified documents. Clinton has struggled to squelch the scandal amid her pre-campaign launch.

Fresh off announcing her candidacy for the U.S. Senate seat currently occupied by Sen. Mark Kirk (R., Ill.), Duckworth had tough words for Clinton.

"I’m going to hold her accountable," Duckworth said.

Duckworth is a member of the Committee on Benghazi that is leading the investigation into Clinton’s improper use of a personal account to conduct official State Department business and her lack of transparency, deleting thousands of emails and wiping her server clean.

"She needs to come before the Benghazi Committee and testify as well," Duckworth said.
