Skip to comments.Trey Gowdy: Benghazi report will be out before conventions
Posted on 05/20/2016 4:54:45 PM PDT by mandaladon
Its been nearly four years since a September 11, 2012, raid on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, left four U.S. citizens dead, including an ambassador, and more than two years since the House of Representatives formed a special committee to investigate the attack. The Houses report on the events is coming soon very soon.
It just might not be the whole report.
In an interview with Chuck Todd on MTP Daily Friday, committee chair Rep. Trey Gowdy, a Republican from South Carolina, said he plans to release the much sought-after draft in June.
Were going to get the report out it will be in the next month, Gowdy said, and then Ill let the reader know: This is what were missing, these are the agencies that havent produced it to us, and if witnesses come forward after the publication of our report, Ill let the readers know that.
Gowdy admitted that for personal and professional reasons, he would have rather the report come out last summer, but said he agreed with Todd that the committee owes it to voters to release it before the Republican and Democratic national conventions this summer, when the parties will meet to declare presidential tickets and shore up current and future agendas.
The delay, Gowdy said, was due to his committees lack of access to necessary documents and witnesses relevant to the investigation.
Democrats instead see the delay as a strategic maneuver to discredit Hillary Clinton, secretary of state at the time of the attacks, who is seen by Republicans as the official who should ultimately be held responsible for the failures in Benghazi, according to the Washington Post. Clinton was considered the strongest contender for the presidential nomination when the committee was originally formed in 2014

Trey just endorsed Trump....said he would support the Republican nominee and so he is...
This could really be good in a lot of ways...Trey knows a lot of the Benghazi stuff, and it also unites our party behind Trump...and it should scare the dickens out of the ‘Butcher of Benghazi’....
Gowdy is making a claim here. I hope he can deliver. I’m not optimistic in his regard.
Gowdy has been a disappointment. All mouth, no action.
Gowdy would be a big help in sending Hillary up River.
I’m not getting all set up for anything involving Trey Gowdy.
Those days are over.
Howdy knows if charges are brought before Obama is out of office O will pardon her
DJT has already said the statute of limitation is six years. His AG will take care of federal charges
He endorsed Jeb first. Expect him to clear Hillary just in time for the convention.
Gowdy endorsed and campaigned for Marco Amnestio.
I hope the report is not a whitewash. Because all of the Benghazi issues should be on the emails.He may provide cover for the FBI since I would assume there is considerable overlap between the investigations.
Take her down.
And yes it is appropriate for the Sanders fanatics to use this information to.
Did he say before republican or democrats conventions ?
I am pleased that Gowdy has endorsed Trump, but I trust him about as far as I can throw my very heavy house.
I will not trust anything Gowdy has to say, he will have to show me and I will not hold my breath.
~~Vote Trump 2016~~~~Vote Trump 2016~~~~Vote Trump 2016~~
The thing I’m most pleased at is the Party is coming together....’United We Stand....” Mr. Trump has put himself and his family out there 24/7 for us...and we need to get behind him, and the ones that don’t, they are for Hillary and who wants all that scandal crap again???
GO.TRUMP.GO!!! ALL THE WAY TO THE OVAL OFFICE!!!
After referring to Benghazi, Secy Clintons telephone call with then-Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Amr also contained a curious reference to what the former secretary referred to as a very successful investment visit led by my deputy Tom Nides, and on the very day they left, this series of incidents began to unfold.
According to the Washington Post, Nides, who was deputy secretary for management and resources at the State Department, was at the same time responsible for communications with donors to the Clinton Foundation. Nides was also involved in the scandal involving Clintons efforts to provide special access to State Department officials for hedge fund clients of her son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky.
Then-Sen Hillary made a special effort to make friends w/ Wall Street.
Then-US Sens Clinton and Corzine.
Corzine was fresh out of Goldman Sachs executive suite. Corzine came from Wall Street to Capitol Hill. Then back to Wall Street to head a company that hired Bill Clinton @ $50,000 per month, AND also misplaced $1.3 Billion investor dollars.
Goldman Sachs top echelon are nuts for Hillary. The G/S biggies "invested" in Hillary's SIL's hedge fund. SIL's cockamamie investing turned the fund into an economic disaster according to the WSJ.
THE CLINTON CORZINE CONNECTION: The NY Post reported Dec 2011 that Teneo was advising MF Global, the doomed international brokerage firm headed by former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine (and ex-US Senator). The firm paid Teneo an eye-popping $125,000 a month as it was imploding and losing millions for its investors. Bill Clinton was also pocketing at MF Global--- an astounding $50,000 per month.
EXHIBIT ONE Corzine was fresh out of Goldman Sachs executive suite, buying his NJ Senate seat office for $65 million; then buying the NJ governorship. Out of office, he ran a hedge fund where $1.5 B went missing....its advisor Teneo was connected to both Bill Clinton and then-Secy of State Hillary's top aide Huma Abedin.
EXHIBIT TWO When Chelsea Clinton's husband started a hedge fund, he gained access to investors who had ties to the Clintons and to Goldman Sachs. Back in 2011, Mezvinsky, now 37, and two former Goldman Sachs'ers Bennett Grau and Mark Mallon began raising money for Mezvinsky's Eaglevale Partners LP hedge fund.
Some of Mezvinsky's "investors" included Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein. Blankfein, a slavish Democrat supporter, said he had "always been a fan of Hillary Clinton."
The WSJ reported extensively on the hedge fund's underperformance since its inception and Mezvinsky's mediocre investing and strategizing.
THIS JUST IN---Bloomberg is reporting G/S's CEO Lloyd Blankfien is a newly-minted billionaire---and also has his own Foundation.
Mmmmmmmm....the sound of wire-transfers is almost palpable.
The IRS says the biggest tax evasion fraud is one Foundation writing a check to another Foundation. The check receiver takes a cut, then wire-transfers the bulk to an offshore bank for the check-writer's use later ----- the way these "humanitarians" skim off-tax free dollars for themselves.
Is Trey sure they can whitewash it that quickly?
For some reason, two words come to mind when I read this........dog, pony......
I’m not holding my breath that anything will come of this ‘report’. It has been 4 long years of a giant nothing-burger from Gowdy.
The gowdy guy is a major director of Kabuki theatre. He believes we are naive fools.
