Trey Gowdy made a startling and damning admission to reporters questioning him after Hillary Clinton’s testimony before the House Select Committee on Benghazi.
Speaking with reporters after Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton’s eleven-hour testimony, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) was was stumped when asked what new information was gathered.
“Uh,” he said. “I think some of Jimmy Jordan’s questioning – well, when you say new today, we knew some of that already. We knew about the emails.”
Gowdy continued, admitting: “In terms of her testimony, I don’t know that she testified that much differently today than she has the previous times she testified. So, I’d have to go back and look at the transcript.”
The inability of the chairman of the controversial committee to answer this simple question calls into question the veracity of the committee itself, particularly in light of recent admissions by key Republicans and a former investigator for the committee that the purpose of the committee was to smear the reputation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
