"@mitchellvii: Face it, Trey Gowdy failed miserably on Benghazi. He allowed it to drag out and in the end, let Hillary get away with murder.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 27, 2015
Real-estate mogul Donald Trump repeatedly blasted Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-South Carolina) on Sunday after reports emerged that the influential congressman is set to endorse Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) for president.
Trump, the Republican front-runner, pointed to Gowdy's high-profile October hearing on the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead.
"His hearings were a disaster. Everybody was looking forward to something that was going to be really productive. And he didn't win with those hearings. It was a total not-good for Republicans and for the country," Trump said Sunday morning on "Fox & Friends."
Gowdy chairs the House Republican-led Select Committee on Benghazi, which grilled former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the attack for 11 hours, much of which was broadcast live on cable news. That day was widely regarded as a political win for Clinton, the Democratic front-runner, though some critics chastised that media narrative.
But Trump was clearly unhappy with how Gowdy managed that hearing.
"I mean, beyond Republicans it was very bad for the country," he said. "So I hope he does a lot better for Marco than he did for the Benghazi hearings. Because they were not good. That was not a pretty picture."
Gowdy is just another example of how Washington manipulates the citizens of this country. I would have bet my last dime that Gowdy was fighting for the four patriots that died. He appears to be just another lying politician that can run a good scam on the American people.
Can anyone tell me who is left in Congress that we can count on to follow the Constitution regardless of external pressures placed upon them? Are there ANY patriots left?
Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee appear to be two that I can trust until proven otherwise. However, that is 2 of of 535 in Congress.
Brian Massie , So you want prof that Ted Cruz is a lying politician ? I suggest you Google Natural Born Citizen For Dummies . The very fact that Ted Cruz is even running for US President or VP say he is a lying politician . One cannot be born in Canada to a Cuban citizen father and a US Citizen mother and be a Natural Born US citizen ! When are you people going to get a clue that the US Congress and the liberal lame stream media including Fox News are lying to the American people when it comes to who is qualified to hold the office of US President or VP under US Constitutional law .
Right you are and just look at how the media covers for o dungo that should tell someone that they will cover for Cruz as well. And if I might add that this issue of ineligibility is an Ace in the hole for the democoms.
But every one jump on the band wagon So now start listing to your on heart and mine,not your eyes or ears. Have we gotten to the point that we believe everything we hear. Now for all your that want to put other down because of the way they try to put the right words down, who became disable , go ahead other's gave you that right
Do YOU understand what you just said? If so...........want to explain wth you're talking about?
Uhhh..........Ya think maybe drunk?
Trump is correct, Gowdy had the opportunity to nail clinton! Instead, during the hearings, Gowdy went soft on her!
Trump ain't the only one unhappy with Gowdy.
Trump is absolutely correct again folks. How many hearing have been held and the promises made? How many people have been held responsible? Americans should be so outraged that they surround Washington, D.C. and demand that Obama and all his administration be held behind bars for treason and other charges against America. Gowdy talks loud and carries a little tooth pick.
I don't think Gowdy flipped 180 degrees he just turned a little more to the left.
