Who’s zooming who?

Your civics class, if you took one, probably didn’t cover whether a committee of the House of Representatives had the power to require the State Department to turn over documents to support an investigation.  Where’s Marbury v. Madison when you need them?

“Benghazi Panel and State Department Spar Over Documents,” The Wall Street Journal, May 14, 2016 A3.  The beat goes on.

Shouldn’t there be a clear answer as to who has the right to which documents in a Congressional investigation?  Who represents the people, who, after all, own it all?
