This Video Shows EXACTLY Why Conservatives Love Trey Gowdy
Conservative Tribune ^ | May 10 2014 | Conservative Tribune

Posted on 05/10/2014 9:50:44 AM PDT by PoloSec

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) has unquestionably earned his place among the great defenders of liberty that this country has had in the past few decades.

It’s been amazing to watch his meteoric rise as a top conservative voice in Washington over just the past few years. It was the initial Benghazi and IRS scandal hearings where he created a name for himself as a vicious interrogator and a relentless pursuer of the truth.

Conservatives can’t wait to see him use his role as chair of the Benghazi Select Committee to subpoena Obama and Hillary and depose them for “hours and hours” so we can finally expose the massive coverup that this administration has perpetuated since September 12, 2014.

I wouldn’t characterize him as ‘vicious.” Determined, fearless, aggressive, incisive, penetrating, and principled are better adjectives to use.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) has unquestionably earned his place among the great defenders of liberty that this country has had in the past few decades.

The one essential strength of character he brings to the process, is his ability to not allow a "change of subject," when asking a direct, simple question.
Or patiently allowing hissy fits of faux outrage irrelevant to the subject matter at hand.

I am just sorry that the criminal Idi Amin look-alike will not be there to get his just desserts or to get humiliated --- again..

I was riveted to every single billionth of a second of the clinton scandals, and I can’t think of a worse thing to say about anybody in an prosecutorial/investigator mode than he or she is like that sissy loser weasel maggot starr. He was the worst of the worst. The thing that leaps most to mind: telling cunton in advance about the blue dress, specifically and precisely so that he would not perjure himself again.

I don’t know Trey Gowdy’s background, but what’s gotten into Boehner? Hopefully not opportunistic political expediency. Even so, looks like he’s finally done something right here.

That’s because this is all a political show. Boehner knows that regardless of what comes out of the committee nothing, absolutely nothing, will be done about it.
What a shame.

I forgot to add...

It seems that the criminal Obama regime has failed to find real or credible scandals in Trey's past with which to blackmail him into submission...

Unlike the total GOPe useless "leadership."

Diogenes would be proud.

Hmmm. I wonder. No, I don’t really trust the Boehner GOPe bunch, but I wonder after it’s all said and done if Congress might pass a resolution ordering Obama to go after the perps. The people through Congress ordering Obama around - wouldn’t that be a nice change

The definition of a great prosecutor is someone who is passionate for finding the whole truth with fire in the belly drive to reach that objective.

Not true. When the SHTF, and the mid-level WH pansys realize that they will face perjury charges, and barry and holder have only about two years left to protect them, watch and listen to the truth coming from the people covering their own little sphincters.

Nothing like the realization that hard time awaits to get to the Bible thumpen truth from degenerate, habitual LIARS.

True. But Democrats have huevos and pound away every chance they get. Republicans? Not so much. And they have to rely on Holder to bring charges. Anyone seriously think he will? And history has shown that when Republicans are totally in charge they do nothing.
I have no faith that anything will become of this other than a political show.

You are 100% correct Holder will do nothing.
And 100% true Obama will do nothing.

But elections have consequences.
Those who abstained in 2012 deserve to be whipped by Obama+Holder. Sad part is those of us who held our emotions in check and voted are also getting the whipping.

I have observed prosecutor Gowdy for many years before he got elected to congress. He is the anti-thesis of Starr.

I am in the minority who is unimpressed by Gowdy. I think he is all bark and no bite. He makes a lot of noise, but in the end he is still a pro-amnesty ally of Lindsay Graham who will do nothing to rock the boat,or disturb the GOPe. I see Issa the same way.

Was there something earlier in the video? It sounded like something you could get McCain to say. I remain unimpressed until I see him in action. Until then, he’s all talk.

He is a legislator, not a soldier as you are. All he can do is call each witness, swear him/her in, ask them questions, and hope this proceeding gets enough national play on non-cable TV networks to make a difference in our National education about Benghazi.

Not sure how you mean "see him in action". You mean hand-to-hand, no-holds-barred, last-man-standing?

So very much of this is out of Gowdy's hands. His committee which he doesn't select personally, is lower in authority than Ken Starr's. If the media is successful in minimizing this committee's efforts, as the media has already telegraphed, there may not be all that much action to see.

FReepers would do well to make more time to pray and to contact local TV stations asking for gavel-to-gavel coverage on at least one of the main networks all the time.

If these hearings are relinquished to C-SPAN only, you may find that you were correct in your post today: Gowdy, by himself, cannot bring on all the action. Not with FIVE Democrat Protectors of Obama on the same committee.

I mean he needs to be in control of his investigation committee, have solid questions, solid follow-up questions, and not allow his witnesses to run the show.

Issa's Traveling Circus has been all hot air with practically nothing to show for it (this committee, maybe?). IRS targeting, Fast & Furious, and Benghazi, and this is what we have to show for it. Gowdy can't be much worse than Issa, but with all the hype I keep reading he'd damn sure better live up to it.

Bulldog or Pit-bull. Just hope he can get to the truth of Benghazi.

He's going to be taking on THE most powerful and corrupt in D.C., and they DO NOT want the truth to get out under any circumstances.

Prayers for he and his colleagues for protection and success.
