Outgoing South Carolina Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy took a look back at his most memorable grillings of politicians and bureaucrats on "The Story."

In an October 22, 2015 clip, Gowdy can be seen gruffly questioning Hillary Clinton on the aftermath of the 2012 Benghazi attack.

He pressed her on her contact with confidant Sid Blumenthal, who Gowdy told her the Obama administration rejected for an unspecified role.

In July 2016, he engaged in rapid-fire questioning of then-FBI Director James Comey.

At the time, he pressed Comey on whether any emails sent through Clinton's private server were marked classified, or whether she returned all of her work-related emails upon leaving the State Department.

Gowdy also replayed his "grilling" of former IRS employee Lois Lerner, who was suspected of targeting conservative groups.

Gowdy said that his wife tells him - and that he agrees - that the person seen in the hearing room is not the former attorney from Spartanburg.

"Who is that?" he asked rhetorically. "I'd rather make you laugh than make you feel uncomfortable."

Gowdy said that he treats Congress like "a job" and that in order to do that job properly, you must sometimes speak in a tough manner when conducting a hearing.

"It's not personal," he said. "I never had a cross word with [former Attorney General] Eric Holder outside of a committee room."

Gowdy joked that former IRS Commissioner John Koskinen was so taken with his questioning, that Koskinen told him after the hearing that if Gowdy was in private practice, he would hire him.
