Washington — A divided House Benghazi committee has approved a report into the deadly 2012 attacks in Libya — and signaled the investigation of Hillary Clinton may continue.

The 800-page report finds no wrongdoing by the former secretary of state but does reveal that she used a private email server for government business.

The panel’s 7-4 vote Friday was split along party lines, reflecting partisanship that emerged soon after the panel’s creation in May 2014.

Despite the vote, the panel’s investigation of Clinton may continue. Chairman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina says lawmakers may seek a federal investigation into whether Clinton lied to the committee in testimony last year.

Gowdy says lawmakers have an obligation to report any untruthful testimony to the FBI.
