Trey Gowdy tears into Hillary Clinton at Benghazi hearing

Screen Shot 2015-10-22 at 11.59.59 AMRep. Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, wasted no time tearing into Hillary Clinton during her testimony before the panel Thursday morning:

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) began the hearing with the former secretary of State on a stern note, mentioning Clinton’s controversial use of a private email server and pledging to bring justice to the four Americans killed in the Libyan city on Sept. 11, 2012.

Despite claims that the committee is merely a partisan witch-hunt, “let me assure you it is not,” the panel chairman said.

“This investigation is about four people who were killed representing our country on foreign soil. It is about what happened before, during and after the attacks that killed them. It is about what this country owes to those who risk their lives to serve and it is about the fundamental obligation of government to tell the truth, always, to the people that it purports to represent.”

[…]

Gowdy was quick to bring up Clinton’s “unusual email arrangement,” which he alleged prevented the panel from obtaining her emails for months.

“Not a single member of this committee signed up to investigate you or your email,” he told Clinton. “We signed up to investigate and, therefore, honor the lives of the four people we sent into a dangerous country to represent us.”

However, while ranking Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings used the majority of his opening statement to accuse the GOP of a political witch-hunt, Clinton herself steered surprisingly clear of partisan attacks:

“We should resist denigrating the patriotism or loyalty of those we disagree with,” Clinton said. “So I’m here.”

The former secretary steered clear of more aggressive rhetoric about the committee’s purpose — a noted change of tone from her political appearances, where she has called the panel “basically an arm of the Republican National Committee.”

“Despite all the previous investigations and all the talk about partisan agendas, I’m here to honor those we lost and to do what I can to aide those who serve us still.”

“My challenge to you, members of this committee, is the same challenge I put to myself: Let’s be worthy of the truth the American people bestow upon us.”

Coming from Clinton, that’s a truly laughable statement.

  • THE COMMUNIST PARTY DESTROYED ANY ATTEMPT TO UNCOVER THE TRUTH. HERE IS WHAT I LEARNED. THE VIDEO LIE WAS PLANNED AND REHEARSED. HILLARY’S TESTIMONY WAS PLANNED AND REHEARSED. THE ARAB VIDEO PRODUCER IN JAIL IS STILL IN JAIL ON HILLARY UP CHARGES. HIS FREEDOMS DON’T COUNT. THE COMMUNIST LIE IS HE IS THERE ON OTHER CHARGES. BUT LIKE THE WOUNDED AT BENGHAZI NO ONE MAY TALK TO THEM. WHY WERE THEY GIVEN FALSE NAMES AND MOVED FROM HOSPITAL TO HOSPITAL? MADE TO SIGN NCND’S UNDER THE PENALTY OF PRISON.
    I BELIEVE THE BENGHAZI FOUR WERE LEFT THERE TO DIE.

    BEFORE THE COVER UP HEARINGS I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT NO ONE COULD GET THERE IN TIME TO SAVE THEM. I WAS LED TO BELIEVE BY THE COMMUNIST MEDIA THE WINDOW WAS TWO HOURS. WHICH STILL WAS TIME FOR A BOMBER TO LEAVE SIGONELLA AFB AND BREAK UP THE ATTACK. BUT AT THE HEARINGS I LEARNED THAT THE ATTACK BEGAN AT 4 PM AND ENDED AFTER 10:00 AM. THAT IS 18 HOURS. BOMBERS FROM THE USA COULD HAVE GOT THERE IN THAT TIME.
    NOT TO MENTION CARRIER PLANES AND MARINES FROM THE AC CARRIER STATIONED AT THE MOUTH OF THE RED SEA. NO RESCUE, NO WITNESSES.

    THIS MORNING A DELTA FORCE OFFICER WAS KILLED IN IRAQ TRYING TO FREE ISIS HOSTAGES. OBAMA WOULD NOT SIGN OFF ON A COMBAT BENEFITS PACKAGE FOR HIS FAMILY. HE WAS ORDERED NOT TO DIE.

    HILLARY GETS AN FFFFFFF FOR DEFENDING THE BENGHAZI BEACH HOUSE. SHE IS A CLASS A LIAR AND EVIL TO BOOT. YET THE PARTY OF DEATH TO LITTLE CHILDREN WANTS HER FOR QUEEN AD DOES 20% OF THE RINO PARTY.

    THERE ARE TWO PARTY’S IN THIS COUNTRY. THE COMMUNIST PARTY AND THE TEA PARTY. THERE IS NO REPUBLICAN PARTY. THAT GROUP IS DEMOCRAT LIGHT. IF WE HAVE TO ACCEPT PAUL RYAN AND LIVE WITH MATCH MCCONEEL WHO VOTED TO BURN THE FLAG 40 DAYS BEFORE 911 ALONG WITH 40 DEMOCRAT COMMUNISTS. ALL THAT STANDS BETWEEN FREEDOM AND SLAVERY IN ALL IT’S FORMS IS A SMALL DEDICATED GROUP RUNNING FOR OFFICE. MADE UP OF ONE GREAT AFRICAN AMERICAN, TWO LATINOS, AN ITALIAN LADY, AN INDIAN AMERICAN GOVERNOR FROM THE GREAT STATE OF LOUISIANA. THIS AMERICAN MOSAIC OF MANY COLORS IS OPPOSED BY FIVE WHITE BOYS AND A LIEING WHITE WOMAN WHO CLAIM TO REPRESENT DOWN TRODDEN PEOPLE OF COLOR. PLEASE TAKE YOUR BOOT OFF MY NECK.

    THIS COMMUNIST PARTY HAS FIFTEEN MONTHS LEFT TO COMPLETE THEIR MISSION. THAT IS IF THEY DON’T DECIDE NOT TO LEAVE WHEN THEY ARE VOTED OUT.THE CLINTON TOWERS WERE FIRST ATTACKED IN 1993. THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF CLINTON GAVE BIN LADEN EIGHT YEARS TO GET IT RIGHT. WHICH HE DID ON 911,2001. AS PREGNANT MOTHERS JUMPED TO THEIR DEATHS HILLARY THE LIAR SHOUTED IN THE SENATE. WHAT DID BUSH KNOW AND WHEN DID HE KNOW IT?
    FOR SURE SHE KNEW NOTHING BECAUSE 40 DAYS BEFORE 911 HER AND HER PARTY OF DEATH WERE VOTING TO BURN THE AMERICAN FLAG CALLING IT FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

    YOU WOULD THINK THAT KNOWING 911 WAS A TERRORIST CELEBRATION DATE. THE COMMUNIST GOVERNMENT WOULD ALERT ALL EMBASSIES TO BE PREPARED FOR INCIDENTS. THE BENGHAZI BEACH HOUSE WAS WIDE OPEN AND THE LOCAL SECURITY GUARDS HAS DISAPPEARED. NOT A GOOD DAY TO GO JOGGING. ONLY IN THE COMMUNIST RUN MOVIES ARE AMERICANS PREPARED AND CAN RESPOND FASTER THAN EATING POPCORN. IN REALITY WE HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO BREAST FED ON MARX AND ENGELS HATES THE COUNTRY HEB PRETENDS TO COME FROM. HE HATES THE FLAG, THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, GUN BEARING BIBLE THUMPERS AND MOST OF ALL THE TROOPS WHICH MUST BE DISBANDED AND REPLACED WITH BLUE HELMET RAPISTS.

    OVER 250 YEARS AMERICA HAS HAD THE BENEFIT OF LLP GUARANTEED BY THE BLOOD OF HEROES.
    IN 8 SHORT YEARS THIS IMPOSTER PRETENDING TO CARE IS GOING TO UNDO ALL THAT EVEN IF IT TAKES SOVIET AND IRANIAN TROOPS TO GET THE JOB DONE.

    NEVER FORGET THE PARTY OF DEATH TO LITTLE CHILDREN VOTED THREE TIMES TO KICK GOD OUT OF THEIR COVEN AT THEIR CONVENTION. SEE YOU TUBE AND SEE MICHELLE SAYING ALL THIS FOR A FLAG.

    I DOUBT IF WE WILL SURVIVE THE NEXT 15 MONTHS BUT IF BY THE GRACE OF GOD WE DO. WE MUST UPROOT ALL THE SEEDS PLANTED FOR OUR DESTRUCTION AND REPLACE EVIL DOERS WITH GOOD PEOPLE. THE BEST PEOPLE FOR MY MONEY ARE THE TE FIESTA PEOPLE. THE THREE BEST ARE TRUMP CARTER AND CRUZ. TRUMP FOR FAST RECOVERY, CARTER FOR HONEST GOVERNMENT AND CRUZ FOR LOYALTY TO THE CONSTITUTION. LISTEN TO MARK LEVIN AND YOU WILL NOT BE FOOLED.

    NEVER FORGET THOSE WHO DIVIDE US INTEND TO DESTROY US. THOSE WHO TAKE YOUR GUNS AWAY INTEND TO KILL YOU.

    • Thank you, Tom. You are one of the few who see the truth and are not afraid to speak it. The people who call us “conspiracy theorists” either don’t know the history of the founding of America or they are terrified of us. May peace see you through the winter of life, after we rescue America from those who would destroy it.

  • Thomas Molinari

    He made a complete ass of himself on national television.

    • Steve

      Hillary is a woman, such as she is.

    • uchsamin

      Are speaking of Trey? If you are, you belong in the hillary camp with low life losers.

  • uchsamin

    THIS”HEARING” SHOULD BE HER TRIAL FOR TREASON. HANG HER AND DO IT QUICKLY.
    We already have over twenty years of their endless schemes that undermine our country.

  • 2chestnuts

    Trey Gowdy could have pursued in depth but chose to take it only so far. He wanted to look like he really intended to get the complete story but actually stopped before severe damage was done to H. Clinton. What a disappointment. The damage to America is much deeper than we know. It appears our only survival is someone that truly believes in our Constitution and will comply and enforce it at all costs and at all times.
