Do You Agree With Trey Gowdy’s Latest Decision About The Benghazi Investigation?

While Chairman of The House Select Committee On Benghazi Trey Gowdy wants to keep the investigation focused on Benghazi, some Republicans are pushing for an expansion of the inquiry into Hillary Clinton’s email setup.

Others, like Gowdy, say that issue needs to be a Justice Department matter and would distract from the goal of the committee: justice for the victims of Benghazi and their friends and families-not a fishing expedition over emails that has strong political connotations.

Gowdy, a former District Attorney and Federal Prosecutor, is well versed on how to run an investigation…

According to Politico:

“House Republicans are divided over whether they should open a separate probe of Hillary Clinton’s controversial email setup, with some conservative firebrands calling for an expanded inquiry while other GOP lawmakers would rather the Justice Department take the lead.

The internal debate — which has been simmering for months — follows the resignation of Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). Boehner had barred GOP committee chairmen, including House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), from investigating Clinton’s email setup for fear of muddying the waters around the ongoing Benghazi Committee probe.

But with Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) vowing that he won’t expand his probe to include Clinton’s server — and with Boehner out the door — some Republicans say the time has come to take direct aim at the former secretary of state’s server setup.

“I just think it needs to happen. … We already know [Clinton] messed up,” said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), a member of the Benghazi and Oversight committees who remains skeptical of Clinton because a handful of her emails have surfaced from other sources, even though Republicans asked for all her Libya-related correspondence from the State Department. “It seems to me we have to do everything we can to ensure we know if [she turned over everything]. … Whether that should be on the Benghazi Committee or the Oversight Committee or the Foreign Affairs Committee — that’s up to them.”



  1. Trey is right. Never muddle the issue at hand. It is easier to get at the truth, and have it understood, when you limit the scope of the investigation. If you go too broad, it becomes easier for the subjects of the investigation to muddle their answers and confuse those tasked with bringing them to justice.

  2. We should get together a Taxpayer Citizen Committee , to further investigate Hillary , people interested in making sure she is within the Law , but if not she should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the Law. No political party affiliation , just 10 taxpayers , who want to straighten out how messed up this country has become in Washington DC. This is our government not Hillary’s , she should be vetted and found out about all the lies she told , the 4 Americans that were killed in Benghazi . Let them be the Ones that decide whether Hillary should be charged or not charged. If Hillary has done everything on the right side , didn’t break any laws , or if she did break laws , should be charged in a Court of Law . This is the most rational way to decide what is the truth , or lies against the Country and the Taxpayers , it’s our Government WE THE PEOPLE MUST DECIDE not the people in Wahington ,mthey can’t tell the truth about anything.
