Gowdy Releases Report Proving Dem Insiders Obstructed Benghazi Investigation
From the very moment of its inception, Democrat members of the House Benghazi Select Committee have worked to sabotage, subvert and otherwise obstruct the committee’s efforts to discover the truth of what happened that fateful night of Sept. 11, 2012, in Libya.
Now that the committee’s work is drawing near a close after two years, with chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., promising to release a final report soon, the Democrat members are demanding a bigger role in the drafting of the report.
But Gowdy, though “mildly amused” at this latest bid by the Democrats, is not surprised that they would make one last gasp at upending his report. He let them know how he felt in a scathing letter sent this weekend to the top committee Democrat, Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings.
According to The Hill, the seven-page, 1,800-plus word letter laid bare the numerous documented incidents of the Democrat members’ obstruction of the committee’s investigation, led by the “serial leaker” Cummings himself.
Gowdy, who tenacious style of investigating and interviewing witnesses has earned him the nickname “The Bulldog,” wrote that the Democrats “have spent far more time writing letters, selectively leaking material, and spreading mischaracterizations than you have actually participating in this investigation.”
Nevertheless, “Despite your efforts to undermine and obstruct our fact-centered work, rest assured all members of the committee will have the opportunity to review the report and offer changes in a manner consistent with the rules of the House,” Gowdy promised.
