Trey Fires Back: Gowdy BLASTS Hanna Over Benghazi Comments

Popular Rep. Trey Gowdy had strong words for a fellow Republican who claimed House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s controversial Benghazi comments were correct.

Gowdy basically said that fellow Republican Rep. Richard Hanna was ignorant to the facts of the situation…

According to Politico:

“GOP Benghazi Committee chairman Trey Gowdy blasted fellow Republican Rep. Richard Hanna on Thursday for claiming his investigation was aimed at hurting 2016 Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

“Running investigations in a private, fact-centric way is unquestionably the right way to conduct a serious investigation,” Gowdy said in the statement, arguing that Hanna knew nothing of what his panel was working on. “The pitfall, of course, is that commentators, and sometimes even members of your own Conference, offer thoughts on matters on which they are not familiar.”

Gowdy has been keeping a relatively low profile amid a barrage of criticism lately from the Clinton campaign and a fired committee investigator, among others. The charges of partisanship come just a week before the former secretary of State’s much-anticipated appearance before the committee.

On Wednesday night, Hanna, a New York Republican, said during a radio interview that he agreed with Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s controversial remarks suggesting the panel was created to hurt Clinton politically. McCarthy later retracted his comments and apologized, but Hanna said McCarthy was probably telling the truth”

  1. Gowdy is one of the only truthful people out there the Democrats make the rules that they like legal or not Gowdy should be the new speaker of the house and it shows how crooked clinton really is

  2. They are doing exactly what they did to Starr including useful idiots from the GOP. There will be more of that as the truth emerges.

  3. McCarthy is in the wrong party and deserves to roast right along with the Democrats whyen the culling comes. I hope I’m still around to help with the revenge.

  4. Why would this loser Hanna try to undermine on of the few members of congress with unquestioned integrity? Who is buying him?

  5. Typical Rhino, Hanna is selling the Tea Party and all conservatives out by defending Hillary, business as usual.
