Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) is an outspoken champion of conservative principles. (See here and here). And he has been relentless at looking for the truth about Internal Revenue Service (IRS) political hacks that used the authority of that bureaucracy to silence Tea Party conservatives.
University of Baltimore law professor Charles Tiefer was brought in by Democrats as an expert to help determine whether the House Judiciary Committee should appoint a special counsel to investigate the IRS scandal. Tiefer, who previously served as solicitor and deputy general counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives, was also recently asked by Democrats to provide a statement on House Speaker John Boehner’s lawsuit against President Obama… So he called Boehner an “embarrassing loser.”
Gowdy is not pleased about IRS’ Lois Lerner referring to conservatives as “a**holes.” And things became heated during the latest hearing about IRS abuses.
Watch (below) as Gowdy grilled during a Wednesday House hearing and made a compelling case as to why a special counsel is needed to investigate the IRS scandal. At one point, he even offered the professor some “free litigation advice” when he refused to answer one of his questions that seemed very direct and unanimous.
Some example lines:
“I really have trouble to giving you an answer except that—”
“Well, then you would starve to death as a lawyer if you can’t answer that question, professor!”
Clearly, Tiefer was no match for Gowdy’s legal mind and sharp intellect.
