Rep. Gowdy: ‘I Have Evidence’ of Benghazi Cover-Up
Tea Party Crusaders ^ | May 3, 2014 | Ted Beamon

Posted on 05/06/2014 7:29:56 PM PDT by lbryce

Rep. Trey Gowdy said Friday that he has evidence of a “systematic, intentional” effort by the Obama administration to withhold documents from Congress about the 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans.

“I have evidence that, not only are they hiding it, there’s an intent to hide it,” the South Carolina Republican told “On the Record With Greta Van Susteren” on Fox News. “I can’t disclose that evidence yet, but I have evidence that there was a systematic, intentional decision to withhold certain documents from Congress — and we’re just sick of it.”

House Speaker John Boehner is considering Gowdy to head a select committee to investigate the Libyan attacks on Sept. 11, 2012, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, including two former Navy SEALs.

The speaker said Friday that the House would vote on a resolution to establish the panel next week.

Gowdy, 49, a former prosecutor who is in his second House term, made the accusations in response to a question on Secretary of State John Kerry being subpoenaed — also on Friday — by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

The panel, chaired by California GOP Rep. Darrell Issa, wants Kerry to explain why the panel did not receive a 2012 email showing Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes counseling former U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to link the Benghazi attacks to an anti-Muslim video.

The email, released Tuesday by Judicial Watch, was not among the documents the oversight panel received in response to its subpoena last year. The committee received the document this week.

My theory from the beginning, from the second this happened was that this was supposed to be a Blind Sheikh for Stevens swap..that was the original intent, because weeks prior there had been rumors about a deal going down and the state department kept on denying it but in a half ass kind of way, not a full out denial..so I think the deal was done, something went wrong and Obama basically said F it let them all die and the cover up began

Breitbart.com (many folks involved) and the Cop in Arizona have been saying they have the explosive smoking gun on different things for years. I hope this guy doesn’t just talk BS and shows results. Conservative politicians are not the best at getting results, but talk a great game.

That’s what I’m saying. I would refuse any Secret Service protection details lest the drive you down a back road near one of their ‘company disposal facilities’ where they’d put a bullet in your head then grind you up, fry you, and dispose of your ashes out at sea.

It would be all private protection for me if I were him.

I have enormous respect for Trey Gowdy.

And I'm CERTAIN he knows that even if he had a handwritten memo from Obama telling everyone in the Executive branch to withhold documents and LIE to Congress, he still would not have JACK.

Bengazi will be settled in the political arena. There will never be Charges brought and there will never be compelled testimony, or else.

ONLY Political pressure and embarrassment will gain any useful information.

EVERY Congressman is covering up WHO HUSSEIN REALLY IS.

We’re supposed to be happy that Gowdy is admitting what everybody watched on TV for 2 years (Hussein and his cabal abandoning 36 people at BENGHAZI, then lying about it)?

It’s like they shoot us in the face 100 times, then take a lemonade break, and ask us to be ‘thankful’ for the 5 minute interlude.

No need for hearings then. Let’s proceed directly to the resignations and sentencing, and the frog-marching.

Well maybe more positive feelings than we do now. When I see Republican Senators traveling with a Secret Service detail I’m always reminded of the reason they were assigned; to spy on them first and protect them second. And we know who their first allegiance is to (supposedly)...

Then why don’t they do something about this and make sure this get’s out? We are tired of reading about the treason, then our elected officials empowered to check this president do nothing.

Do any of you think we we get anywhere with this?

I remember reading about this exact theory when all this first happened. It sounded plausible and the most logical conclusion to the why of Benghazi then and now.

Pray and persevere to get justice for the murdered brave Americans, and the rope for obozo and his ilk.

Ive always believed that is exactly what happened..because Obama was down in the polls and he needed something big to make him popular again. I think his team thought that if they had some sort of hostage situation(Like what occurred in Iran) that he could do a swap and be considered a hero who saved a US Ambassador..I knew the Blind Sheikh theory made the most sense because for about a week there were rumors about it taking place but the State Department kept on half ass denying it, so I knew something was up then this happened and just made perfect sense

Exactly. It was all based on obozo winning the election, even if it meant that four brave Americans had to be murdered in the process. Justice had better be served, or We the People will have to hand it out.

See that is where my theory comes in, they did NOT expect the other three to show up..that was unexpected, they did not see that one coming. Once the plan was foiled Obama basically said F it let them all die..he probably sat there and watched it all go down. No way was he not a part of this, he watched it, got pissed that his plan got screwed up, then enjoyed watching them die

I cannot see how trading the Blind Sheik for the ambassador would boost Obama’s popularity. I don’t think the Romney voters would have been impressed. Then again in Obama’s warped brain he thought it would work.

I’ve seen some private sector personal protection details that are extremely well trained, experienced, dedicated, and heavily armed that would give a trained assasin a run for his money. Most assassins are just trained opportunists with the right tools who wait for the right time to act. They can be dealt with if they are expected.

They probably already had all that info from his NSA transcripts anyway but I can see the 0bozo liberal mafia acting nuts and doing something with his information online. I bet the NSA as a full-time team dedicated to surveilling Gowdy’s every move and listening to every conversation. He has one big target on him right now. The only reason they won’t act right now is because it would be way too obvious.

Considering the 30+ CIA operatives at the annex, it’s more likely the entire operation was guns/weapons running to MoBro/al-queda terrorists in Syria.

I said right after seeing the Breitbart CPAC speech that he can't toy with this bunch of liberals that way. You cannot announce that you have damning evidence that you will only release a month or so from now, and then expect to live to actually release it.

If you're going to announce it, release it immediately and then let the committees pick up the pieces in the aftermath. Don't use the committee as the platform for the release, because you may not get that far in the process.
