Gowdy: Dems Shouldn’t Be Mad at Me, They Should Be Mad at Hillary

On Fox News Sunday yesterday, Chair of the House Select Committee on Benghazi Trey Gowdy (R-SC) told host Chris Wallace that his investigation was not a Hillary Clinton oppo research effort in disguise, and suggested anybody — say, next guest Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA), for instance — who felt the committee was unfairly focusing on Clinton should address their complaints to

“To the extent Democrats are frustrated they should talk to Secretary Clinton, not me,” Gowdy said. “I didn’t tell her to get a personal server. I didn’t tell her to hire her attorney to go through these 60,000 records, and lord knows I didn’t tell her to delete 30,000 of them.”

“If you look back at the three hearings we have had so far, i have mentioned Hillary Clinton’s name a whopping zero times,” Gowdy said. “We would never be having this conversation, and Adam would not be on your set right now, had she not had an arrangement with herself to decide what is public record and what is personal. So if he is frustrated with the last two weeks, he needs to talk to Secretary Clinton.”

Schiff alleged that the the committee was intentionally dragging its feet to push Clinton’s testimony into the 2016 cycle. Gowdy denied this on Meet the Press.
