Trey Gowdy Grills Administration About Benghazi Scandal

Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is becoming very popular among conservatives for his willingness to take on the corrupt regime attempting to rule us instead of represent us.

He recently was at it again… taking Admiral Mullen to task for not questioning Hillary Clinton in the wake of the Benghazi attack. Admiral Mullen had been the lead in an investigation into the Benghazi attack and its aftermath. That investigation found that the State Department had made countless mistakes in the lead up to the attack, mistakes that could and should have been prevented. However, as Rep. Gowdy points out, while they lay much of the blame at the feet of the State Department, they never spoke to Hillary Clinton who was in charge there at the time.

Representative Gowdy also took a few minutes to address the family and friends of those who were lost in the attack to remind them that the American people had not forgotten about their loved ones.

Some of these family members have been incredibly unhappy with the Obama administration’s response to the entire scandal. Susan Smith, the mother of Sean Smith and information technology specialist who was killed in Benghazi, also spoke to the members of the House Oversight Committee. She had some harsh words for the Obama administration.

“I was told a few things and they were all lies,” Smith said. “Obama, and Hillary, and Panetta, and Susan [Rice] all came up to me at the casket ceremony – every one of them came up to me, gave me a big hug – and I asked them what happened.”

“And every one of them says, ‘it was the video,’ and we all know that it wasn’t the video. Even at that time, they knew it wasn’t the video,” she added.

“So, they all lied to me,” she said.

The Obama administration and Democrat Party better wake up. We want answers on Benghazi and we won’t stop agitating our representatives until we get them.
