Latest Trey Gowdy Items
After a furious push to establish and appoint members to the House select committee on Benghazi, the panel's official proceedings have hit slow gear, and committee members say they don't expect to begin talking with witnesses until the fall.
Rep. Trey Gowdy took a time-out from the somber cause of politicking to tell a two-plus minute story of his recent dream that opened: Speaker John Boehner, Sen. Lindsey Graham and Maryland's Rep. Andy Harris all died and went to Heaven.
House Speaker John A. Boehner said Friday that the select committee charged with investigating the 2012 terrorist attack on a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, is about getting the truth and that it's up to the committee members to decide who they want to call as witnesses.
In a story May 18 and May 19 about Republican members of the new House Select Committee on Benghazi, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, had asserted that the State Department rejected more than 200 requests for additional security before the deadly Benghazi attack. Jordan's comments were incorrectly characterized. He spoke of more than 200 security incidents in Libya before the attack.
I agree with those who say Congress needs to "move on" where the Benghazi investigation is concerned; meaning, I think our representatives must accomplish the people's business in the productive, bipartisan manner for which they were elected.
The rule of law colors everything for Rep. Trey Gowdy, from the indignant prosecutorial style he employs in Capitol Hill hearings to his three dogs, aptly named Judge, Jury and Bailiff.
A top Democrat said Sunday his party will participate with a select committee to investigate the administration's handling of Benghazi terrorist attack — but only if the panel is fair and balanced, like Fox News.
Democrats are still weighing whether to participate in the select committee on Benghazi, but House Speaker John A. Boehner has managed to check off most of his big constituencies in naming the seven Republican members.
Saying they were tired of administration stonewalling, House Republicans voted Thursday to create a select committee to investigate the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi — but drew only scant support from Democrats who rallied around President Obama and called the probe a partisan inquisition.
