As many of you know by now, South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy has been tapped by Speaker John Boehner to chair the newly formed Benghazi Select Committee.
As Chair of the Benghazi Committee, Gowdy has been granted the “strongest authority possible“, and given a team of experienced former prosecutors to fill out the Republican side of the Committee, in order to investigate the terrorist attack that occurred on September 11, 2012.
Gowdy has challenged the mainstream media with a list of unanswered questions that they should have already been asking, and has vowed to use the power of subpoenas and depositions, no matter where they lead, to fully uncover the truth of the Benghazi attack. This is why Obama and the Democrats are afraid of Gowdy and his committee.
Another reason that Obama and the Democrats are afraid of Trey Gowdy is the fact that he has never lost a case as a prosecutor, and is well-known as a determined and unstoppable truth-seeker. (H/T AMTV Media)
”…Gowdy is as dogged, focused, and serious-minded as they come. His background as a federal prosecutor and his zeal for the truth make him the ideal person to lead this panel,” Boehner said in a statement on Monday afternoon.
In a statement released on U.S. Congressman Gowdy’s official website Monday, Gowdy said in part, “While people are free to draw different conclusions from the facts, there should be no debate over whether the American public is entitled to have all of the facts.” Gowdy is known for his bullish antics and regularly makes headlines for his unfettered pursuit of the truth.
Boehner announced the new committee after government watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained previously unreleased emails from the White House that proved they were behind the lies that built the narrative about the attack being sparked by protests over a Youtube video, an explanation that few people have ever fully accepted as truth.
Some people are questioning Boehner’s pick of Gowdy to chair the committee though, suspecting that Boehner and the establishment GOP may have ulterior motives. Gowdy seems a natural fit for a committee tasked with discovering the truth, but why would a party establishment that often obscures the truth allow him to dig it up?
Gowdy has been known to speak openly against the Obama administration’s criminal tactics. Indeed, the investigation regarding Benghazi may very well open up impeachable offenses by the United States government. The fact that Boehner would choose someone with the caliber of Trey Gowdy is highly suspicious of the truth itself. Gowdy, a former prosecutor who never lost a case in his career, has been known to rabidly seek the truth wherever it leads.
It goes against all logic and reason why Boehner would choose a man so well known as Trey Gowdy to lead this investigation. It is neither beneficial for the GOP puppet politicians nor Democrats. This leads one to question, “Why him?” Glenn Beck, for one, speculated on his radio program Wednesday morning, “The Republicans put Trey Gowdy in charge because… once this investigation starts to really dig things up, and the machinery turns on, and it needs somebody to grind, it won’t grind the GOP. It will grind the TEA Party. You mark my words: That’s what’s coming. That’s why [Boehner] did it.”
Regardless of whether Boehner has ill-intentions to set-up Gowdy and the Tea Party caucus, or if he truly does want Gowdy to uncover the truth, doesn’t really matter. Gowdy will seek out and destroy any and all efforts to derail his investigation, and won’t worry about what the media or Democrats are saying about him or his investigation until he is satisfied that he has answered the many questions still remaining unanswered for the families of the victims and the American people.
