Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) Predicts Explosive Benghazi Testimony on May 8

Posted: May 1, 2013 at 7:25 am   /   by

In this 8-minute video from April 30, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) predicts May 8 Congressional testimony on Benghazi will provide major breakthroughs in understanding what actually happened, as well as uncovering grossly negligent management of the situation and the (apparent) cover-ups that followed.

Gowdy is openly skeptical about the President’s professed ignorance of witness intimidation allegations.  And he trashes the State Dept’s own investigation, opining that the investigation was deliberately designed to insulate Hillary Clinton, who was never even questioned by the investigators.  Says Gowdy: “There’s a reason students don’t grade their own papers, and defendants don’t sentence themselves.”

Greta Van Susteren infers, and Gowdy implies, that some of the eye-witnesses will be those allegedly intimidated by State Dept, CIA, and other officials.  He and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) appear to be planning this hearing with military precision and discipline.

A few days ago, I lamented that precious few Washington politicians dare to speak forcefully about radical Islam because they are either bound up in political correctness or terrified of the ridicule that the Democrat-servile media would heap upon them.  Rep. Gowdy may be one of the few exceptions.  It’s nice for a change to hear a politician who doesn’t dissemble, waver, or equivocate.
