Rep. Gowdy: Death Threats ‘Not Gonna Keep Me From Doing My Job’
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), was on “The Kelly File” tonight, where he responded to media reports that he has been getting death threats since being appointed chairman of a House select committee on Benghazi.
“I was a prosecutor for 16 years. This is not my first death threat. I’m always happy when it doesn’t come from my wife, and this one did not, so I’m gonna be fine. It’s not gonna keep me from doing my job,” Gowdy told Megyn Kelly.
Kelly asked him what he thought of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s suggestion that some people are choosing not to be satisfied with the probes into Benghazi.
Gowdy said the family members of the four murdered Americans still have unanswered questions.
“I would just ask Secretary Clinton, with all due respect, can you explain why we were still in Benghazi after everyone else had pulled out and after the British ambassador was almost assassinated and our compound was attacked twice? There are three separate categories of questions, each with sub-units within them that have not been answered.”
Gowdy said he is committed to getting answers through his committee, and he may use depositions to do so.
Kelly asked him if Clinton can get out of a deposition.
“Well, if she can get out of a subpoena, she can get out of it. But I don’t send invitations to cocktail parties, we’re gonna send subpoenas, and we’re gonna expect her to comply,” he said.
