VIA| Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) has called the buildup to Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi hearing some of “the worst weeks of my life.”
Over the course of 18 months, Rep. Gowdy has been investigating the circumstances surrounding the Benghazi attack that left four Americans dead, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.
Many in the media have attempted to discredit the Benghazi committee as nothing more than a Hillary Clinton “witch-hunt”. But Gowdy assures people that the former Secretary of State is “not worth 18 months of my life, with all due respect.”
“Four dead people are, but you’re not.”
The amount of criticism Gowdy is facing is no “coincidence; it’s an attempt to marginalize and impugn the credibility of the panel that’s going to be asking her questions.”
““Attacks on your character, attacks on your motives, are 1,000-times worse than anything you can do to anybody physically — at least it is for me.”
Gowdy has insisted before that the Benghazi issue is far bigger than one person. He told “Face The Nation” he believes “the eye witnesses on the ground that night in Benghazi are more important to me as former prosecutor than the former Secretary of State.”
There is no doubt that a lot of people are looking forward to what the committee uncovers on Clinton, but Gowdy knows that she is just one person.
“By the time we’re through, we will have interviewed 70 witnesses. She’s one out of 70.
The media may try to drag Gowdy through the dirt, but the frustrated congressman will continue the investigation regardless of the pushback.
