Washington (CNN) – The chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi waved off questions Friday about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's criticism of GOP congressional investigations of the 2012 attacks in her forthcoming book “Hard Choices.”
"There is a time and a place for everything and her book tour is neither for me," Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina told CNN about the chapter of the book that covers the attack in Benghazi, which left the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans dead.

I take it that Hitlery’s book is work of fiction.....
I take it that Hitlerys book is work of fiction.....
The Clintons could write another book, ......... “I Felt Your Pain and Made Over $100 Million.”
Good answer, Trey Gowdy!!! The time will come...Trey....when you can utter to Ms. Clinton.......Just the facts, Ms. Clinton....simply just the facts!!! And...I would let her blabber all she wants. Methinks, her tome is going to be a flop just like Elizabeth Warren’s was.......yea...Clinton will get a million low lifes to buy it....but...it is going nowhere fast!!! It’s called a flash in the pan!!! Ms. Clinton is used, damaged goods...just like POTUS Barack Hussein Obama has become!!!
Keep the powder dry...Mr. Gowdy!!! Ur time is coming. Remember...our dead heroes of Benghazi are relying on you to produce the truth and truly prove....ya all have not left them behind....as Ms. Clinton, POTUS Obama, Leon Penatta, Susan Rice, etc. did, so coldly, without loyalty and unconcerned!!!
Hillary needs to be Freeped at every stop on her book tour.
She is trying to set a false narrative.
The optics of people protesting her would be disastrous for her.
Hey Hillary! If our enemy demands that you do something for them that is detrimental to The United States, and you do it, would that be providing aid and comfort to the enemy? Let’s see that commercial again that you and Obama made using American taxpayer dollars. Treason.
The question probably came from one of Cankles own staff(or the MSM, same thing), just trying to generate interest in her “already 1 million books sold” DOA fictionalized tome.
That was the best possible answer Trey Gowdy could have given. Had he made any specific statements about that chapter, they would have been used by the mainstream media to promote Hillary's book. Gowdy was too smart to take the bait.
Her books are all bought and paid for by the teamsters and SEIU unions to make it appear to the public as if they are flying off the shelves. They did the same thing to the former speaker of the house from Texas a few years back...
When are these hearings going to start?
“...Clinton will get a million low lifes to buy it....but...it is going nowhere fast!!! Its called a flash in the pan!!! “
I have no info directly about her book but in the past democrats have written books that were bought by the DNC, etc. and used in fundraisers. A way of channeling national funds to a specific candidate bypassing existing donation limits.

The book tour is just another Clinton money laundering scheme. Huge upfront bonus, then her rich Marxists friends order them for use as cord wood.
Absolutely right!! For Trey Gowdy it's a sworn depostion and testifying before the select committee, Hillary is NOT looking forward to either.
You just know she’s waiting for Trey Gowdy to comment about her book of lies. I bet he could hang her out to dry with what she’s written, but he won’t. He’s a prosecutor through and through. He knows the pitfalls well and he won’t be suckered in.
She’s definitely and desperately trying to airbrush history.
One thing is increasingly certain to me. People aren’t buying her excuses, her sudden and convenient concussions and illnesses and all the other cheap tricks she attempts to avoid responsibility.
She has used up all the punches on her victim card.
Note the typical subtle bias?
They never say that any democrat or Hillary "waved off" questions on Benghazi, even though her statements are a perpetual wave off of the truth.
No, only Republican Congressmen chartered with finding out the truth of very questionable and extraordinary episode in America's foreign policy "wave off", that is, refuse to answer questions.
Absolutely, his answer was perfect. He made it clear he had far more important matters to concern himself with than her stupid book.
I’m really looking forward to seeing Gowdy and his committee in action!
Hillary goes on to attack anyone who asks questions about her behavior during Benghazi, writing, I will not be a part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans. Its just plain wrong, and its unworthy of our great country. Those who insist on politicizing the tragedy will have to do so without me.
I think that might give it credibility. Trey Gowdy has effectively made her book into a publicity stunt, rather than a reliable source of information.
It might be best to ignore her book tour. There was a recent news article that the admission price to one of her speeches was cut by 2/3rds. That is a real embarassment.
Trey’s answer was perfect! He basically said he had far more important matters to occupy his mind with than her dumb book tour. LOL!
I like the way that Gowdy lectures the press every time they try to put him down.
We should start a shadow campaign in book stores to move copies of the book to the Fiction displays.
I guess when he Republicans on he committee will have time to review Issa's committee hearing which will be necessary to possible charge perjury.
Bump on the head donchano!
A visit to Libya? Better be careful. Remember Rep. Leo Ryan.
A fact that slipped out in the article that caught my eye:
Gowdy told CNN he's hard at work setting up the select committee and is looking for lawyers and investigators to fill 25 slots on the panel.
He is beefing up big time!!! Clinton better take her "book" tour to countries that don't have extradition treaties!!! LOL!
LOL, freepers have the greatest ideas!
Maybe she’ll bring a doctor’s note. It wouldn’t surprise me.
She’ll try any scam to avoid responsibility.
I do too! He runs circles around them. HA!
LOL! Most sound advice for her, Russia would probably suit her and she could visit Snowden.
If she does decide to run for prez, which I’m not too sure of, she’s going to be very busy for at least the next year. I don’t think all those investigators will be sitting around doing nothing and she knows it, she may be tempted to have another incapacitating concussion.
“500 lib librarians will purchase 50 copies each and these will end up in the $1 bin eventually. It’s a scam with our tax dollars. “
After reading your post I went to my library network website.
Cambridge,MA has ordered 35 copies and it’s population is only around 110,000. Imagine the business the large Dem cities are going to give to Hillary.
Don’t forget the straight out money laundering. Some contributor will buy a warehouse full and just dumpster them.
Exactly! Watch for the Chairman Mao shirts again, then we'll know she got millions again from the "Chinese dishwashers" living in garages.
You may be on to something! I think this is her practicing...
All that’s missing is Yakkety Sax.
LOL! That’s hilarious.
Going to post a short piece by Andy McCarthy.
McCarthy’s starting to be right up there with Steyn with me.
Incredibly apt post and pic! Even sans the proper soundtrack!
Agreed. He’s a smart lawyer and not afraid to speak out.
