"I think that is the fairest way to make sure that we have all the documents that belong to the public, and ultimately all the facts."

Clinton, who is expected to launch her presidential campaign soon, has come under fire in recent weeks, after it was revealed she had used a private email account to conduct official business when she was leading the State Department.

Clinton defenders quickly accused Boehner of using the email controversy to score points with conservatives and play politics with a national tragedy.

"Hillary Clinton took full responsibility, immediate action, and was fully transparent in making sure the tragedy that occurred in Benghazi will not be repeated," said Adrienne Watson, a spokeswoman for Correct the Record, which is funded by the Democratic-aligned PAC American Bridge 21st Century. 

"Republican politicians remain relentlessly focused on shamefully using the Benghazi tragedy for political benefit and they are taking their eye off the ball on creating jobs and growing our economy," she said.

Boehner pushed back on the suggestion that the GOP is on a "witch hunt."

"The way forward is for the secretary to turn over all of her emails that pertain to the public," the Speaker said. "But some neutral third party is gonna have to make some decisions about which documents are personal and which ones are public record.

"And so far she's been unwilling to do this."
