Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy of upstate South Carolina became somewhat of a political superstar for his multi-year investigation of Hillary Clinton and her email crimes, as well as her role in the Benghazi tragedy.
Clinton has been attempting to request that the Benghazi Select Committee be shut down for good. She probably thinks that, now that she’s lost and will not be in the White House, she can simply go quietly into the night and completely avoid jail time. Gowdy thinks differently.
He sent a forcefully worded letter to Defense Secretary Ash Carter to stop Hillary from closing the Committe down, stating that Obama ally Carter “intentionally mischaracterizes both the nature of the Committee’s investigation and its interaction with the Department of Defense.”
Gowdy added, “It is also riddled with factual inaccuracies, which not only does a disservice to the public but also does a disservice to the women and men who work for the Department of Defense. Your staff is welcome to waste taxpayer dollars writing partisan, factually deficient letters to our Committee, coordinate the language with House Democrats, and then leak it to the media. That is your prerogative.” Are you happy that Gowdy is taking such a strong stand to keep the Benghazi Select Committee open so that he can continue to investigate Clinton’s crimes?
