South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy appeared on Justice With Jeanine on Fox News yesterday and discussed the recent New York Times article about the attack in Benghazi.
“So what would happen if our fellow citizens knew that Al Qaeda really wasn’t on the run,” he asks. “In fact, they were walking to the front gate of our facility in Benghazi getting ready to kill our ambassador …” A chilling point. Judge Pirro once again raises the question of whether the NYT has been actively and willfully aiding the President and/or Hillary Clinton through their coverage of this story. Given the preponderance of information and so many unanswered questions, it’s a more than reasonable subject for speculation.
Below is the transcript of the above clip:
Gowdy: I don’t know. I’ve got more questions than i do answers having read that article, that exhaustive article, Judge, including how many attackers were there? Of the universe of attackers, of that number, how many did you talk to? How many cited the video as the impetus behind the attack and what did you do to cross-examine or corroborate the information that you were given? Because up until two weeks ago Susan Rice was the only person on the planet who thought a video had something to do with our attack, and now that number has increased by 100%. It’s gone from one to now two.
Pirro: It’s interesting when you say did you cross-examine your people regarding this information that you now come out 15 months later and say is so important, their own newspaper reporters contradicted what this latest story is. Do you think this whole thing about, oh, it’s not Al Qaeda, just fits in with the Hillary, oh what difference does it make, and the 2014 elections, the 2016 presidential election?
Gowdy: Well here’s what I do know. Go back to when Benghazi happened, what was the narrative? At every rally right after the president said if you like your health insurance, you can keep it, what did he say? Osama Bin Laden is dead and Al Qaeda is on the run. So what would happen if our fellow citizens knew that Al Qaeda really wasn’t on the run? In fact, they were walking to the front gate of our facility in Benghazi getting ready to kill our ambassador, three other fellow Americans and set it on fire? How would that have impacted the election? I don’t think it would have helped the president in 2012. It’s not going to help democrats in 2014. And the fact that her name, Hillary Clinton’s name was never mentioned in this exhaustive treatise on Benghazi. Nothing!
