Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) spoke this morning about the damning report from the GOP-led House committee which investigated the 2012 Benghazi attack.

At its core, the report faulted then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration for missteps before, during and after the attacks, which left four Americans dead, including Amb. Chris Stevens.

In a heated moment following a reporter's question, Gowdy said some people - including Democrats - will simply not be swayed by this report and will continue to claim there is no new information in it. 

He said Democrats also now argue that the details of the report will not "fundamentally change" the way the attack is viewed.

Gowdy argued it is definitely significant that no U.S. military asset ever deployed and that fact could fundamentally change the way people view the attack.

Gowdy referred to an email in which officials spoke about planning in case the "crisis" expanded and a "real threat" emerged.

"What the hell was going on in Benghazi?! Was that not a real threat that emerged?" he asked. 

Gowdy said Democrats, like ranking committee member Rep. Elijah Cummings, are not going to change their minds. 

"He's not my audience. My audience are reasonable fair-minded Americans who want to know what happened to four of their fellow citizens and I think they can draw their own conclusions."
