Trey Gowdy Just Accidentally Admitted That The House Benghazi Report Is A Total Failure

While trying to defend his committee’s Benghazi report, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) accidentally admitted that the Republicans have utterly failed.

Select Committee Chair Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) went on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to defend the report:

Gowdy said, “You read the report, and if you think it is an overzealous prosecutor. We mention Secretary Clinton’s named less times than the Democrats do despite the fact the report is twice as long. So I would ask you and all my fellow citizens. Put aside what the Democrats say the report is going to be like. It’s actually out. Read it for yourself, and read all the new information that we found, and what our focus is on. It is not on one person. It’s is on four people whose political ideations. I have no idea what they are.”

That was a shallow attempt at spin by Rep. Gowdy, but let’s be honest, the reason the report is focused on the Obama administration and not Hillary Clinton’s emails is that the Republicans didn’t find anything. The Republicans on the Benghazi Select Committee spent millions of taxpayer dollars, and years investigating Hillary Clinton’s emails.

The resulting report was an 800-page long rehash of various Republican conspiracies and allegations. The facts that Gowdy pointed to don’t back up anything that Republicans have been claiming about Benghazi for years. There no evidence of criminal activity or a criminal conspiracy. Republicans conclude in their biased partisan opinion that things “should have been known,” but they present no real evidence to back up their claims.

The press release on the report was pure damage control spin, as the emphasis was placed on generating a lot of pages in the hope that the volume of the report could disguise its lack of substance. Gowdy defended the report by practically begging the American people to read it, which points to what the real motivation for the investigation has always been.

Republicans wasted millions of taxpayer dollars on a publicity effort to get voters interested in a conspiracy theory.

It didn’t work, which is why Rep. Gowdy went on national television to plead with voters to read his report.

If actions really do speak louder than words, Rep. Gowdy’s behavior after the release of the report demonstrates that Republicans understand that their effort to smear the Democratic nominee by politicizing the death of four Americans was a total failure.
