Rep. Trey Gowdy: ‘We are going to have a public hearing’ on Media Matters, DOJ collusion
The Daily Caller ^ | 09/22/2012 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 09/22/2012 2:24:04 PM PDT by nhwingut

Appearing on NRA News’ “The Daily News with Ginny Simone,” South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy said hearings are planned concerning the Department of Justice’s use of taxpayer resources to smear its critics by colluding with left-wing advocacy organization Media Matters for America.

Gowdy’s promise of hearings comes after The Daily Caller this week published a series of emails, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, that show the Justice Department’s Office of Public Affairs director Tracy Schmaler and Media Matters staffers working together to attack reporters covering Justice Department scandals and other administration critics.

“My guess is, this won’t be the last we hear about that,” Gowdy said when Simone first asked him to respond to the news of their collusion. “[House oversight committee chairman Darrell] Issa is the chairman, and he can do what he wants.”

Trey Gowdy is the guy who pinned down, schooled, and totally flabbergasted Kathleen Sebelius a few months back because of her total box'o'rocks ignorance on the Free Exercise clause. I mean he got her good. He's one of the siege engines against the HHS fortress.

So I'm ready to siege.

Cynicism, eartick, gains nothing, concedes everything. It's nothing but preemptive surrender.

You can hold all the hearings you want’ it is ACTION that we demand. Yank Media Matters tax exemption; then hold your hearings. You have got to hit these lying SOBs in the head with a baseball bat just to get them to stop lying.

This will be the epitaph on the tombstone of the GOP: “Died of excessive hearings and inaction”.

Don’t be a whining simpleton. Trey is one of the good guys who says what he means and does what he says.

I for one am glad to hear this - that Schmaler b***h should have been fired a long time ago.

“Simpleton”, wow I am really offended by your language. Maybe Trey can use you in his next F&F presentation.

““Simpleton”, wow I am really offended by your language.”

Don’t be offended. I could have insulted you worse. You accused Trey Gowdy of being a RINO dipwad. Not a good idea on your part. Trey is one of the rock-solid conservatives and Tea Party members in the South Carolina delegation. Before you open your mouth, do your research, eartick.

Welcome to the fight, buddy.

OK, asswipe, you called me a simpleton, a dipwad and now told me to keep my mouth shut.

You my friend are one person that I know well and have had in trenches with me and know how to handle when the time comes.

For now, adios.

Well, hell. let’s make it crystal clear for everyone reading this thread.

You insulted one of the premier conservatives in South Carolina and called him a RINO traitor. Then you called me an asswipe for telling you who Trey is.

You’re quite a piece of work.

DOJ used taxpayer resources to help Media Matters advance their anti-American agenda.

I’m a fan of Gowdy, but I don’t think this investigation will go anywhere either. Not that he and Issa aren’t trying, but the donks don’t get punished. Ever.

DOJ colluded with ATF to sell weapons to straw buyers that were traced to a scene that were used to murder a border patrol agent in Arizona.

And absolutely nothing will come of it. Congress is a bunch of spineless, gutless wimps led by Speaker “Bonehead” Boehner who cries at the drop of a hat. McConnell in the Senate is just as wussy.

He's one of the siege engines against the HHS fortress.

He impressed me, as well, during the Fast and Furious hearings.
