Watch Out Obama! Trey Gowdy Announces First Benghazi Hearing
Posted: July 30, 2014
In an interview with Fox News’ Catherine Herridge, Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) announced the first Benghazi select committee hearing will be held in early September.
The announcement comes after a few months of quiet investigation from the Committee, which was announced by House Speaker John Boehner in May, after almost a year of party leadership opposing the idea. The select committee includes seven Republicans and four Democrats.
This is almost TWO YEARS after the terror attacks at the American Embassy in Benghazi, Libya which killed 4 Americans… including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
Gowdy, a no-nonsense former prosecutor, has spent his $3.3 million budget wisely, and is determined to get to the truth behind the easily avoidable attack.

He said that while he has received good cooperation to date, and the issue had not yet arisen, “if you mean to say that ‘not only can they not talk, they don’t have to come,’ you have to litigate that.”
Gowdy said the investigation will be driven by facts, characterizing as strongly bipartisan his work with the committee’s ranking Democrat, Elijah Cummings of Maryland, to review documents and identify witnesses.
He also said he anticipates the first public hearing will be held in September and will focus on the State Department investigation into the 2012 attack and whether its recommendations have been implemented.
Asked whether he wants Hillary Clinton to testify, Gowdy said, “I want everyone who has access to relevant information, and it is, I think, impossible to argue that the Secretary of State at the time would not have access to relevant information…”
