Conservative Hero Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) has been sounding the alarm about Democrats slowing the progress and sabotaging the House Benghazi Select Committee, which he serves as Chairman. Democrats don’t want to know what really happened in 2012 in Benghazi, Libya, because that terrorist attack is a major embarrassment to Hillary Clinton.
After months of research, Gowdy is furious as the committee’s top Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) for trying to ruin the report by leaking private information and stall the report release until after the 2016 elections.
Gowdy, a former undefeated prosecutor, exposed Cummings and the Democrats in a huge way with a blistering 7 page long letter. This is a truth bomb!
Gowdy on Sunday issued a blistering, 1,800-word attack on Democrats’ efforts to undermine the committee’s investigation through “abject obstruction” and “serial” leaks to the media.
But the five Democratic members will nonetheless have access to the report before it is made final, Gowdy wrote in a letter to the panel’s top Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.).
“Despite your efforts to undermine and obstruct our fact-centered work, rest assured all members of the committee will have the opportunity to review the report and offer changes in a manner consistent with the rules of the House,” Gowdy said. “Then, after the committee completes its work, the American people will be able to read the report, the supporting evidence and transcripts, and judge for themselves the value and fairness of our investigation.”
Democrats, however, appeared skeptical of the pledge, pointing to apparent wiggle room in House rules that could let Republicans make a draft version of the report public before circulating it internally.
“Based on their latest letter, it appears that the Republicans have decided not to vet their draft report for accuracy with the rest of the Select Committee members before they release it to the public shortly before the political conventions this summer,” a Democratic committee spokesman said in a statement provided to The Hill.
“Democrats are deeply disappointed that Republicans have rejected virtually every opportunity to make this investigation bipartisan, fact-based, and credible.”
Spokespeople for Gowdy declined to clarify his commitment.
In any case, the South Carolina Republican made clear that he is disdainful of the Democrats’ behavior on the committee over the last two years.
Democrats “have spent far more time writing letters, selectively leaking material, and spreading mischaracterizations than you have actually participating in this investigation,” he wrote.

Democrats will stop at nothing to protect Hillary Clinton, especially now that she’s officially the Democratic presidential nominee, according to the AP. Gowdy is correct to call out Cummings and Obama’s Democratic Party for their criminal actions to stop the investigation. The American people deserve answers as to why four Americans – including Ambassador Chris Stevens – died needlessly on Hillary’s watch.
Now, it’s clear the details of this report are a ticking time bomb, about to destroy Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
