Trey Gowdy threatened with harm; Capitol Police kick off ‘active, open investigation’
Washington Times ^ | Wednesday, May 7, 2014 | Cheryl K. Chumley

Posted on 05/07/2014 11:24:48 AM PDT by Red Steel

Capitol Hill police are investigating emailed threats to Rep. Trey Gowdy, the South Carolina congressman tabbed to head a special panel to probe the White House’s response to the Benghazi terrorist attacks.

Politico reporters and journalists at other news outlets say they’ve received at least two emails that threaten harm to Mr. Gowdy due directly to his leading role on the panel. Capitol Police refused to comment on the actual threats, except to say that “an active, open investigation” has been launched, Politico reported.

I’m not surprised at all. They will try to justify the mob mentality by tying racism into this somehow, someway. I hope Trey has enough money to take precautions. This is who we are dealing with now, hoodlums and lobotomized sheep.

Could be, although I think Mr. Bottom, knowing that his legislative agenda is shot, is now focused on doing as much damage to America with his pen & phone as he can. The Beard checked out during the first term; she’s on permanent vacation. It’s the Hillary! 2016 machine in duck and cover mode.

Trey Gowdy is going to be made to feel like he’s with the 101st Airborne living in a frozen foxhole taking constant incoming for a solid month in the winter of 1944, Bastogne.

but these people are going to stall and obfuscate. They’ll try to drag it out past the 2016 election, and the (their) media and their liberal voting supporters will be right there with them.

It’s going to be a real fight. It’ll make Iran Contra look like a round of Jeopardy.

And Trey is looking for the truth.

They must have not found anything sordid in his past. They’ll be pissed just on that alone.

The SNL writers are on overtime as we speak.

Agreed. They should start looking for the perp there, and then expand their search to golf courses located in a continuously expanding radius around that address.

They’re bound to run across him sooner or later...

It will be very interesting and I think it will bring some real results, one way or the other.

It’ll be a summer miniseries for some. I think the libs will have to watch it like a train wreck (for them).

He is such a character, and not at all in a bad way.

But he’ll need prayers.

Will the quote: “Something will happen to Rancher Gundy.” by the BLM’s Feudal Lord Reid now be expanded to include Representative Trey Gowdy?

Hopefully it will, and then Trey will have a legal threat link tying the BLM to Benghazi, for an ever-expanding investigation into the culture of brutality that defines the Obama Administration, and all who still support it.

The Democrats and Chicago Thugs will try to intimidate him.
