Here are my two bits on Trey Gowdy, the Benghazi Special Committee and the RINO factor. I know that ever since John Boehner (a true RINO) was voted back in as Speaker, many of us were disappointed that Trey Gowdy said that had he been able to attend the vote that day (he wasn’t due to weather), he would have voted for Boehner. Many of us wished that he would’ve thrown his support behind someone else, such as Louie Gohmert. (Note: This was not about Gowdy being elected Speaker. His talents would’ve been wasted there. This was solely about his vote for someone other than Boehner.)
I’ve been reading comments on my page and others. Many people have been really upset that he said he would support Boehner. I was even frustrated by his comment and I’ve always been a huge supporter of Trey Gowdy.
I’ve given this a lot of thought and after watching this latest Benghazi hearing, I am convinced. Trey Gowdy is a good man, just as I’ve always thought. He is driven and focused. You don’t get to where he is in life without being driven. He is honorable and committed to getting to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi and holding those accountable — which in the bigger picture could have a major impact on how history is going to unfold for this country.
Boehner appointed Gowdy to chair this Special Committee. (A good thing Boehner has done.) Gowdy has said he has a picture of one of the men who was killed that night (given to him by the man’s family). He carries that picture with him. I have no doubt that Trey Gowdy is driven to find the truth. He is as outraged by what happened as the rest of us are and he is making it his personal mission to find the truth to at least give some closure to the families and justice for the Benghazi Four.
For all of these reasons, I truly believe this is why Gowdy would not do anything to rock the boat or interfere with his current task. I think he knew that even if he voted for someone other than Boehner, it wouldn’t have made a difference. Boehner still would’ve been in as Speaker and then new tensions would be in place. It was widely reported that those who did vote against Boehner were “punished” by the Speaker. Gowdy is smart. He knew this. He is not going to do anything that would interfere with his Benghazi mission. Replacing Boehner wasn’t his fight. Holding those accountable for the Benghazi atrocity is.
I have also read comments from people who are discouraged that nothing is happening with the Benghazi investigation. People are tired of the “big talk”. They want action. I agree! I was feeling the same way, but after watching this latest Benghazi hearing, I can see why it’s taking so long. It has been 18 months since the Special Committee was formed. ALL documents pertaining to Benghazi (e-mails, etc…) have been requested. Gowdy has faced stonewall after stonewall. Just watch this last hearing to see the truly ridiculous nonsense he is up against. No straight answers from anyone at any agency who is supposed to be complying with the order. On top of that, there is now tension in the ranks. This last hearing showed a truly pathetic display of the Democrats on the committee conducting a full blown whine-fest, using their questioning time to hammer Gowdy and snivel about various things related to the investigation. Listening to Rep. Elijah Cummins drone on and on about looking into the eyes of the family members, blah, blah, blah…. Please. It would be convincing stuff, if we didn’t see right through it. It’s all a diversion. Running interference. I guarantee you the Dems are sitting in their own waste because they know just how good Gowdy is at what he does. He is a pit bull. Driven, focused and dead serious about his job. He will see this thing through to the very end. I for one am throwing all of my support behind him. Go Gowdy!! ~~Sister Patriot
