BREAKING: Trey Gowdy Just Got SICK Order From Obama On BENGHAZI Investigation, This Is TREASON

Trey Gowdy is firing back at the Defense Department for criticizing the Republican-led investigation into the deadly 2012 attacks in Benghazi for taking too long. Gowdy argues that it is their lack of cooperation that has delayed the investigation. 

Gowdy outlined his objections in a letter to Defense Secretary Ash Carter, telling the Pentagon chief that his top assistant for legislative affairs had in recent correspondence intentionally mis-characterized the inquiry, TheBlaze reports.

“It is also riddled with factual inaccuracies, which not only does a disservice to the public but also does a disservice to the women and men who work for the Department of Defense,” Gowdy wrote.

In an April 28 letter to Gowdy, Stephen C. Hedger, assistant secretary of defense for legislative affairs, expressed frustration with what he described as the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s potentially futile calls for witnesses and information. He also cited the inquiry’s “crescendo” of costly, duplicative and unnecessary requests, including a few based on claims made on Facebook or talk radio.

“This type of questioning poses the risk that your final report may be based on speculation rather than a fact-based analysis of what a military officer did do or could have done given his or her knowledge at the time of the attacks,” Hedger wrote.

In his letter to Carter, Gowdy said Hedger’s remarks could have been communicated personally to the committee or through all other channels. But, he said, “that would have denied your assistant secretary the chance at an overtly partisan letter, which was both drafted and leaked for said purposes.”

Gowdy said Carter’s department apparently has a “different definition of burden” depending on who is investigating the department – itself or Congress. He said Hedger’s letter cited unrealistic timelines set by the committee, which launched its inquiry in May 2014. Yet according to Gowdy, the department was able to complete an exhaustive review of the bombing of a civilian medical facility in Afghanistan within two months.

Gowdy closes his letter by dropping this hammer:

Your staff is welcome to waste taxpayer dollars writing partisan, factually deficient letters to out Committee, coordinate the language with House Democrats, and then leak it to the media. That is your prerogative. It will not prevent this Committee from interviewing all witnesses who can help us write the final, definitive accounting of what happened before, during , and after the attacks that killed four Americans in Benghazi and injured others. It will just prolong the investigation. I have been encouraged by too many soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines across the country to allow letters from political appointees to stop us.

Democrats sitting on the Select Committee, led by Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, believe that Gowdy spent too long focused on attacking former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton before eventually shifting its focus this past winter to the military’s response to the attacks, something they could have been doing simultaneously.

Cummings told Politico:

“This has nothing to do with federal agencies and everything to do with Select Committee Republicans not even making many of their requests until after their disastrous hearing with Secretary Clinton, which even Republicans criticized as a monumental flop.

Republicans have been spending their time scheduling dozens of new interviews — which they could have conducted long ago — to justify their own existence, drag out this investigation as close as they can to the election.”

Elijah Cummings is a racist, useless, liberal scumbag that should have been put out to pasture decades ago.



Look, NOTHING will come of any of this unfortunately because our government is completely corrupt, we have Republicans that don’t really give a crap and most importantly- it’s impossible to hold Obama accountable for ANYTHING BECAUSE HE IS BLACK!

It’s RACIST! And Hillary is his bitch.

We are in for the WAR of our lives folks. THIS IS IT!

I plead with all of you to get behind Donald Trump. He loves AMERICA! He stands for EVERYTHING WE STAND FOR!

Yeah, CRUZ lost-get over it and get over it NOW!

Join us in the war to take AMERICA Back from these insane Democrats!

God Bless.
