Representative Trey Gowdy [R-SC], Chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, Cost American Taxpayers $7Million Dollars with Nothing to Show for it.
Very rarely can a House Representative make a ‘horses ass’ of himself. Yet,Congressman Trey Gowdy [R-SC] did it over an eight hour hearing investigating the Benghazi affair by inadvertently allowing ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to perform at her best. Gowdy and his “Animal House” Republican sycophants, were so completely ignorant of the matter at hand that they fell into a “bear trap” that insulated Hillary from any accusations that she might be a liar. At the same time, they made her appear stoical,smart,diligent, and resilient all at once.In financial terms, Gowdy and his miscreant staff wasted $7-12M without even having the vaguest idea about what they were trying to achieve neither short and long term.
Even I,a loyal Republican opposition member, was taken aback as I watched Hillary correctly answer all the questions that Gowdy and his sycophants asked her about the State Department and the so-called failed Benghazi security problem.
South Carolina’s wonder-boy prosecutor, Trey Gowdy, has shown the world that ineptness and narcissism are the crucial ingredients for self-immolation on the stage of worldwide media. Without any semblance of self-awareness, or even a modicum of self-reflection, the ‘Spartanburg Wiz Kid’, Gowdy never asked the right questions about a covert installation that had absolutely nothing to do with the State Department or Ambassador Chris Stevens.
Instead the Benghazi problem revolved almost entirely around what really happens when ‘black ops’ and ‘off the book’ operations get into unforeseen problems. As someone who has been involved in such off line operations around the world, I can categorically state that there are no set rules for protection or safety wherever you might be working. Gowdy and company should have realized this reality from the minute they started researching the Benghazi affair.
No… they decided to go on air for a good eight hours, demonstrating to me and the world how truly ignorant and incompetent our legislators really are. (CIA gotcha!) Equally disturbing was the $7M cost to the American taxpayers to allow these vapid glory boys to insist on having their one day in the sun in front of countless millions of viewers.
I think that Trey Gowdy has done enough damage for one congressman. What a tool! Might suggest that he retire ASAP! I am sure he has a comfy $$$ account based on his NON-work in the Benghazi-Non-Investigation. Love to see a record of his deposits in his Swiss bank or North Carolina bank account. Can’t wait for the NEVER READ book that he will get an advance on…from some GOP/DEM PAC.
As for Hillary Clinton, there are many things wrong with her. Yet resilience, hard work, competitiveness, and endurance are not any of them. May the best she-man in the 2016 Presidential race win!
