Just In: Trey Gowdy Is About To Raise Hell In Benghazi Investigation

WATCH Trey Gowdy On Fire Over IRS Targeting

Though there have been few updates from the House investigation into the 2012 terrorist attack of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy offered some insight into what is to come. The former prosecutor was tasked with heading the inquiry; and according to a Politico report this week, he is preparing to unleash his special committee designed to dig for details regarding America’s response to the ambush that left four Americans dead.

He criticized the cursory questioning of witnesses including Hillary Clinton, who served as secretary of state during the attack.

“There is most assuredly a place for hearings,” he said of his plans for the investigation, “but not if your primary focus is to gather facts.”

As part of his in-depth approach to the investigation, Gowdy revealed that a number of private meetings, potentially including a viewing of video footage from the scene of the attack, are scheduled with officials with knowledge of the deadly incident and its aftermath.

Working with committee members from both parties, the Republican congressman asserted that his intention is not to trash the other side but to unveil the truth.

“I don’t want to appear naïve,” he said, “but I do hold out some hope that a few things left remaining in politics, or in our society, can be above politics.”

He declared that his fellow legislators can attest to his focus on the mission at hand.

“People who have worked with me in the past and the people on the other side of the aisle who I work with now, I don’t think they are at all surprised this is the approach that I am taking,” he said. “My goal is to find out what happened.”

The highest-ranking Democrat on the panel, Rep. Elijah Cummings, shares Gowdy’s outlook.

“I have a great working relationship with Chairman Gowdy,” he said; “and I am hopeful that this will be the serious, bipartisan fact-finding investigation that he has promised.”

  2. Edwardkoziol says:

    If I was Trey I wouldn't turn my back on that silverback Elijah Cummings until they put that ugly gorilla back in the Md.zoo.Cummings is the typical spook who hates white republicans.If that jig had his sights on Bush he would have brought the hammer and nails to crucify him.

  3. AL in Vermont says:

    Trey Gowdy would make an excellent attorney general when the republicans win back the white house.

    • Evermyrtle says:

      If you want somebody who can and will get the dirt and tell it, it is Trey Gowdy. I would put nobody ahead of him.

  4. It is about time this got going! We need "honest" answers from the Obama administration about their gun running scheme through non-lethal aid we were sending to the Libyan rebels, that are now in the hands of Boko Haram & the fighters from Syria & Iraq that have restarted the war over in Iraq! When Congress turned down Obama to go to war in Libya, he AGAIN took it upon himself to break the law. The weapons were being stored in the Benghazi compound. Obama was in the situation room watching the attack take place before he left to get some sleep before flying off to his fundraiser in Vegas! Wow, he cared so much about our people in Benghazi, he "couldn't" miss his fundraiser!!!!
