From the very moment of its inception, Democrat members of the House Benghazi Select Committee have worked to sabotage, subvert and otherwise obstruct the committee’s efforts to discover the truth of what happened that fateful night of Sept. 11, 2012, in Libya.
Now that the committee’s work is drawing near a close after two years, with chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., promising to release a final report soon, the Democrat members are demanding a bigger role in the drafting of the report.
But Gowdy, though “mildly amused” at this latest bid by the Democrats, is not surprised that they would make one last gasp at upending his report. He let them know how he felt in a scathing letter sent this weekend to the top committee Democrat, Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings.
According to The Hill, the seven-page, 1,800-plus word letter laid bare the numerous documented incidents of the Democrat members’ obstruction of the committee’s investigation, led by the “serial leaker” Cummings himself.
Gowdy, who tenacious style of investigating and interviewing witnesses has earned him the nickname “The Bulldog,” wrote that the Democrats “have spent far more time writing letters, selectively leaking material, and spreading mischaracterizations than you have actually participating in this investigation.”
Nevertheless, “Despite your efforts to undermine and obstruct our fact-centered work, rest assured all members of the committee will have the opportunity to review the report and offer changes in a manner consistent with the rules of the House,” Gowdy promised.
The report and accompanying evidence and transcripts would be released shortly after that, at which point the American people would be able to make up their own minds about exactly what happened in Benghazi.
“This investigation has uncovered new information that will change how the public views what happened before, during, and after the attacks in Benghazi,” Gowdy wrote. “Despite your best efforts to prevent it from happening, actually talking to eyewitnesses and actually accessing relevant documents has produced new information… It took longer than I wanted, but we are finally going to be able to answer questions left unanswered by previous investigations.”
You can read the entire letter right here.
It has been clear from the start that the Democrats assigned to the committee had the sole purpose of obstructing the investigation and protecting the legacy of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In this, they have seen some success over the past couple years, but have ultimately failed in that task.
Gowdy was absolutely right to call out Cummings and the other Democrats for their deliberate efforts at stymieing the investigation he has been leading, exposing their subterfuge for the American public to see.
Hopefully, the final report will be released soon, so we can put the sorry history of the Benghazi attack and its Democrat coverup to rest once and for all.
