The article “The Gowdy committee: Get ready for months of partisan brawling over Benghazi” illustrates that the GOP doesn’t care about legislating, but persecuting Democrats for profit.
Aren’t these allegedly calm and rational investigations to garner information? Not this one which is setup to pillory Hillary Clinton among other attacks.
Why then is Trey Gowdy, the Republican congressman named to head the House select committee on Benghazi, quoted in this article as saying regarding this crucial matter “It would be shame on us if we intentionally dragged this out for political expediency,” he said. “On the other hand, if an administration is slow-walking document production, I can’t end a trial simply because the defense won’t cooperate.””
Gowdy is a former prosecutor and him using trial means that the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton are defendants.
About fundraising over their trumped up Benghazi tragedy the GOP doesn’t have piddling, individual Congressman attempting to benefit, but the National Republican Congressional Committee is.
The article illustrates that the Democrats are considering boycotting the investigation which they characterize as a “partisan witchhunt.”
Gowdy was on the GOP TV propaganda organ FOX News and was allowed to say to the FOX News entertainer-parenthetically a former Bush official, that a New York Times article about Benghazi never mentioned who the secretary of state was at that time. Gowdy was permitted by the bubble headed bleach blonde-that seems to be the requirement for female FOX News entertainers, to say this is indicative of the left-wing medias’ cover-up of Hillary Clinton’s difficulties with this matter.
This investigation is balderdash and has been proven to be so repeatedly. Hillary Clinton commissioned an independent report regarding it. If you are guilty or trying to conceal why would you do that?
The article “Rep. Trey Gowdy, Chief Prosecutor In The GOP’s Benghazi Show Trial” illustrated that the GOP isn’t planning on this being and investigation, but a trial as it states “Gowdy accidentally told the truth on national television – he’s already convinced, before the process even starts, that the White House is guilty of wrongdoing, and the far-right congressman believes it’s his job to prosecute administration officials.”
Why would the GOP base love this? It seems to me it is a “Perry Mason” show with the entire episode shedding no light on the guilty party until the last scene. There might be some good scenes and some of the characters might have good performances, but to what point? The trouble with this is the guilty party is the GOP for forcing this farcical waste of taxpayers time and money on its base -no one else is buying this tripe, who are the clueless jury. To prove their contempt for their own voters the GOP has the audacity to also fundraise over this.
