Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) says there are “gaps of months, and months, and months” in the Hillary Clinton emails that have been turned over to Congress from her time as secretary of state. Clinton has been heavily criticized for setting up and using a private email system instead of a government email account during her tenure at the State Department.

Gowdy said he's also concerned that there were no emails from one specific day included in the trove of emails.

"There are gaps of months, and months, and months. And if you think to that iconic picture of her on a C-17 flying to Libya, she has sunglasses on and she has her handheld device in her hand — we have no emails from that day," Gowdy told CBS anchor Bob Schieffer on "Face the Nation" Sunday morning.

"In fact, we have no emails from that trip," he added. "So it strains credibility to believe that if you’re on your way to Libya to discuss Libyan policy, that there’s not a single document that’s been turned over to Congress. So there are huge gaps."

Gowdy said he has “lost confidence” in the State Department to maintain a public record for lawmakers and the American people.

"It’s not up to Secretary Clinton to decide what’s a public record and what’s not," he said. "And secondly, what is our committee entitled to? We’re not entitled to everything. I don’t want everything. I just want everything related to Libya and Benghazi."
