"@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."
I did not know that...............lol interesting. I do know that he is all talk and then lean left.
Mr. Gowdy has betrayed all legal citizens of this country. He is no better than Obama. How many times has he chaired a committee and told us he would find truth? The truth has been presented and no one has been arrested or fired. Gowdy has sold out along with RUBIO who wants amnesty. Anyone who votes for Rubio is putting knife in back of USA
Rudy Giuliani would have taken care of this properly.He says she committed 15 crimes.
