Skip to comments.Obama Admin Admits Benghazi Committee Went The 'Extra Mile' to Forward Investigation
Posted on 05/08/2016 5:23:06 AM PDT by rktman
The House Benghazi Select Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) was pleasantly surprised by the Obama administration on Thursday. After months of accusing the committee of hampering progress in the investigation for political reasons, the State Department has finally admitted it deserves the blame for the delayed findings.
The State Departments review unit into documents uncovered by the Benghazi committee was supposed to be functional by June 2015, but the agency failed to make that target. State Department spokesman Mark Toner noted that Gowdy did his part, even helping to secure funds for the department to obtain the relevant records.
In a new statement, Gowdy was grateful for the acknowledgment.
"After years of frustrating delays by the State Department, and its refusal to answer questions about why it was taking so long to produce documents, I appreciate the Obama administration finally confirming the Benghazi Committee went the extra mile to complete its investigation as soon as possible by helping the State Department get extra funding," he said.

Gowdy gave them the time to fix the books and he is happy. despicable!
bammy and hillary got away with it.
He appreciates this??? He helped them get extra funding? WTH?
Is this satire?
Let Republicanprofessor know if you want on or off this ping list.
What is not acknowledged is that Gowdy’s committee is the one that uncovered Hillary’s email server.
gowdy = Top Director of Kabuki Theater. The guy is a compromised joke.
Sadly, it did not come from The Onion or Peoples Cube.
A disgusting story covering up the abandonment of patriotic men trying to defend their country and fellow citizens.
Maybe Barr and Chertoff had sex and they spawned Gowdy?
These people are all out to protect their own. There is a reason that some RINO’s say they will vote for Hillary. This is the only way they can keep their little charade going.
First, many people were duped by Issa. I thought he was a clown and received many nasty comments because I said it like I saw it. Same with Gowdy. Blah, blah, blah,
Huff, puff, cry, cave. Repeat as necessary.
The perp walks during the the Trump presidency are going to be quite entertaining.
I may have been one of those who dumped all over you. I know that doesn't sound like something I would do (ahem) but Issa had me buffaloed.
I had some rather nasty freepmails back then. I was called a troll, hater etc. The positive thing is that Trump has no connections or loyalty to any of these clowns so he can come in and clean house. Get rid of the posers and expose them for what they are.
Somebody had to take Issa’s place.
