Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy responded to Hillary Clinton’s recent accusations that Congress’ Benghazi investigations are the “same old partisan games” on Chris Wallace’s “Fox News Sunday,” saying she has lashed out in frustration and blamed a “nonexistent right-wing conspiracy.”
Clinton, earlier this week in Iowa, stated: “I won’t get down in the mud with them. I won’t play politics with national security or dishonor the memory of those who we lost. I won’t pretend that this is anything other than what it is, the same old partisan games we’ve seen so many times before.”
Gowdy responded to Wallace’s question if the investigation is partisan by noting that investigators are Obama appointees and that Clinton is blaming a conspiracy, rather than herself.
“The inspector general isn’t partisan. Neither one of them. In fact, they were nominated by President Obama and confirmed by a Harry Reid-lead Senate. The FBI is not partisan. I get that she’s frustrated. Her poll numbers of tanking. Folks who never thought about getting in the race are getting in the race,” Gowdy said.
