  • NYT: Trey Gowdy to subpoena Sid Blumenthal for Benghazi committee

    To quote Wilford Brimley in Absence of Malice: “Wonderful thing, subpoenas.” Don’t set your DVR just yet, as this subpoena will serve as an “invitation” to a closed-door but transcribed hearing. Still, the move to collar longtime Clintonista Sid Blumenthal qualifies as a major development for the Benghazi Select Committee investigation: Representative Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, a Republican who is leading the congressional committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, plans to subpoena Mr. Blumenthal, 66, for a private transcribed interview.Mr. Gowdy’s chief interest, according to people briefed on the inquiry, is a series of memos that...

    The Hill ^ | May 18, 2015 | Martin Matishak
    Republicans on the House select committee investigating the Benghazi, Libya terrorist attack are planning to subpoena Sidney Blumenthal, who served in Clintons inner circle while she led the State Department. The New York Times reported that panel chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) is planning to issue the subpoena. The top Democrat on the House select committee criticized the plan. These latest moves by the Benghazi Committee-issuing a subpoena without first contacting the witness, leaking news of the subpoena before it was served, and not holding any Committee debate or vote-are straight out the partisan playbook of discredited Republican investigations, Rep....

    The Committee, however, faces obstacles and frustrations. It is difficult to conduct a fact-­‐centric congressional investigation when the Administration impedes the Committee’s progress by repeatedly failing to answer the Committee’s requests or to provide information in a timely manner. Further, the legislative branch’s constitutional toolbox seems inadequate to uphold our task in seeking the truth.

    The Obama Administration is using a stealth refugee program to import thousands of Muslims into communities throughout the United States. This effort to bring Muslims into the U.S. poses a grave national security threat to America and inevitably brings social chaos in its wake in communities where there are large populations of Muslims living. This stealth program has gotten the attention of Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) who is deeply troubled by the Obama State Departments plan to dump hundreds of Muslims into the community of Spartanburg without input from the citizens of that community. Gowdy has been sending letters...

    The Republican chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi on Friday defended the pace of his panels year-old investigation into the 2012 terror attack and announced plans to interview three top aides to former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., in a 15-page Interim Progress Update released on the one-year-anniversary of the committees creation, blamed the Obama administration for delays in the panels probe.

    Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., has received a response to his letter demanding answers from Secretary of State John Kerry about the planned resettlement of dozens of foreign refugees in his state. But the answers failed to shed much light on the secrecy that surrounds the refugee program. The process by which cities and towns across the U.S. are selected to receive displaced persons from United Nations refugee camps remains largely a mystery. As Gowdy discovered, the city of Spartanburg, South Carolina, was approved for an infusion of 60 refugees, mostly from Syria and Africa, by its own state government headed...

    While the House Select Committee on Benghazi was originally expected to reveal its findings by the end of this year, the release of the highly anticipated report could be delayed until 2016. The delay would cause the report to be released during the key months of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. Republicans on the committee sought to put the blame for the potential delay on Clinton and other members of the Obama administration.

Following revelations of misconduct by DEA agents, a senior Obama administration official told Reuters on Tuesday that DEA chief Michele Leonhart, who was grilled in a congressional hearing last week about the sex parties, was expected to step down from her post in the near future.

Ken Buck (R-Colo.) last week tweeted a picture of himself and Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), the leader of the House GOPs Benghazi investigation, holding an AR-15. Buck said in the tweet that the assault rifle is his, and that the picture was taken after Gowdy stopped by his office.

If you can't fire the agents or even recommend that they be fired, "What the hell do you get to do?!" an exasperated Rep. Trey Gowdy asked her.

In the column, I expressed surprise and disappointment that, while Chairman Gowdy by his own account learned about Secretary of State Clinton’s use of private email over six months ago, the committee took no meaningful responsive action: It did not reveal that alarming information publicly, issue subpoenas for those emails, or issue preservation letters to the relevant telecommunication service providers to...

    Chairman Trey Gowdy knew about Clintons secret server six months ago, and that too is a scandal. In assessing the Benghazi select committee headed up by Chairman Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.), there are two possibilities, and they are not mutually exclusive: (1) The committee is just a Potemkin probe erected by the Republican establishment to get restive conservatives to pipe down, and (2) the committee is incompetent. The panel, of course, was commissioned by the Republican-controlled House to investigate the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2012, attack in which al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorists killed Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, and...

While many of the testy exchanges that occurred during the hearing were covered and even trumpeted by conservative media, a furious Mark Levin said the exercise was pointless. The very Republicans grilling this guy dont plan to do a damn thing about Obamacare! Theyre not going to use the power of the purse to control any piece of it! Levin shouted on the air. So, what is the point of a hearing?...

    Now this is just pathetic. Some of you turned Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC)87% into the hero of the day because of his Benghazi investigation. He could do no wrong. What happens when you build a cult of personalty around any politician is then they can go BOHICA on you. Bend over America. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC)87% is now on record admitting hes going to help shove President Obamas amnesty plan right where you dont want it. (SNIP) So, Hemmer asked Gowdy who hed stop the President. Gowdys answer? He wants to let Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)Heritage ActionScorecardSen. John McCain52%Senate Republican...

    Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Wood was the commander of the 16-man Special Forces security detail at the U.S. embassy in Tripoli, Libya, until the State Department ordered him and his men home on August 5, 2012 and never replaced them. Despite repeated pleas from Ambassador Chris Stevens and his State Department security officers in Tripoli that they remain in Libya, Washington wouldnt listen. Colonel Wood remains perplexed at what happened on the night Ambassador Stevens was murdered, and in a recent conversation, recalled a similar event in June 2012 when the British ambassador came under RPG attack while visiting Benghazi. When...

    FOX NEWS VIDEO ON THE RIGHT SCOOP ^ | POSTED ON DECEMBER 3, 2014 | FOX NEWS
    Trey Gowdy argues that Obama is completely wrong on immigration and that he is definitely abusing the idea of prosecutorial discretion. But when it comes to doing something about it, he says that the president wants the ratings of Congress to be as low as his and that they shouldnt take the bait and shut the government down.

    Republican bulldog Rep. Trey Gowdy put the kibosh on the idea of impeaching President Obama during a nationally television Fox News interview, telling his broadcast audience that booting the commander-in-chief from his office would open the doors to something even worse —the ascension of Vice President Joseph R. Biden. The Biden-is-insurance joke has been around since 2008, and people saw it as less of a joke back then than they do now, I think. It really does seem like the only way Obama could become more unhinged is if Democrats still controlled both houses of Congress.I'm not sure if...

    Trey Gowdy was wrapping up an interview with Megyn Kelly on The Kelly File when she asked the Representative from South Carolina what is happening with the investigation into the Benghazi attacks. Gowdy told her that he is planning to interview some new witnesses to the terrorist attack that resulted in the deaths of four Americans. We have a very robust investigative plan that will kick off in December, and Megyn I can tell you my goal was to have an investigation where witnesses who have never been talked to before felt comfortable coming forward because of the seriousness of...
