May 5, 2014 Press Release
WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) announced today that he has chosen Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to serve as chairman of the select committee to investigate the 2012 tragedy in Benghazi, Libya.
“With four of our countrymen killed at the hands of terrorists, the American people want answers, accountability, and justice. Trey Gowdy is as dogged, focused, and serious-minded as they come. His background as a federal prosecutor and his zeal for the truth make him the ideal person to lead this panel. I know he shares my commitment to get to the bottom of this tragedy and will not tolerate any stonewalling from the Obama administration. I plan to ensure he and his committee have the strongest authority possible to root out all the facts. This is a big job, but Rep. Gowdy has the confidence of this conference, and I know his professionalism and grit will earn him the respect of the American people.”
NOTE: Last week, in response to the release of emails showing the White House was more involved in misleading the American people than previously known and the revelation that the Obama administration had withheld these documents from a Congressional subpoena, Speaker Boehner announced that he was establishing a new select committee to investigate the events surrounding the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.
You’re right and it’s about time, it’d be nice to think this is an awakening for him.
LOL! That’s great, especially Biden! B^)
Sex obsessed prosecutor..
I hope the Dems boycott the hearings. All they would do is obstruct and COA. (Cover Obama’s Ass)
watch your back gowdy.
Gowdy, beware, the hounds of the media are being let loose! He will be targeted by the whores of the left.
Gowdy is about to show the Democrats where the bear sh!ts in the woods!
But, if the Democrats aren’t there, then the liberals and the MSNBC crowd will claim it is just a partisan witch hunt. They will even claim, incorrectly, that Democrats were banned.
I think he’s going to be the one to finally look the media in the eye and say, “I don’t give a rat’s behind what you think about me.” FINALLY!
He won’t be the milquetoast that was Ken Starr. I think Gowdy will just charge ahead no matter what and probably call out those who try to smear him.
A good prosecuting attorney in his day. He has an attack dog quality about him. Now if the RINO’s will just get the hell out of his way.
Yes, Gowdy is great news. I don't have any confidence in Boehner so I'm surprised that he selected Gowdy.
Finally. Since he’s not running for re-election, he can be the Honey Badger. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0wi7Ugct1w
Awesome - I put that one on my desktop background - don’t know how long I can stand seeing Soeotoro et.al.
I agree. Let's watch and see who in the media suddenly go quiet. They won't be poking a stick at Gowdy because they know he pokes back hard and might get called to testify.
I’ve seen too many hearings in the House and Senate to care much one way or the other here. It has been demonstrated over and over that good men or not, high levels of criminality or not, these hearings turn into a farce.
We’ll see how it goes.
Just for the record, Laz please be forthcoming and say that you did not hit it.
