Trey Gowdy, Who Led 11-Hour Benghazi Hearing, Declares Public Congressional Hearings 'Utterly Useles

"SNIP....

Former Rep. Trey Gowdy, the man who led an 11-hour public congressional hearing on the Benghazi consulate attack, said Monday that he believes such hearings are “utterly useless”—now that they’re used to investigate President Trump’s inner circle.

Gowdy, now a Fox News contributor, joined Fox & Friends to weigh in on last week’s House Oversight Committee hearing involving former Trump “fixer” and personal attorney Michael Cohen.

“What we learned this past week is how utterly useless public congressional hearings are,” the South Carolina Republican said. “I think two closed-door sessions this past week on the Senate and House side with the intelligence committees were very helpful. That is why they’re bringing Cohen back.”

In October 2015, Gowdy was the point man who grilled Hillary Clinton during 11 hours of questioning before the House Select Committee on Benghazi over the terrorist attack that killed four Americans in 2012, when the then-presidential candidate was secretary of state. Gowdy, a former federal prosecutor, chaired that committee and the House Oversight Committee at the time.

.....SNIP"

Reminds me of when Kenneth Starr came out during the 9/11 aftermath and suggested no special counsel for investigation of the Bush WH before, during and after.

8. They made a Clinton look Presidential...but ended up hurting her anyway.

So no, the hearings were not useless for the GOP.

They got no incriminating testimony because there was nothing there to begin with.

13. His hearings were utterly useless because they were based on lies and innuendo.

Thinks are going to be different now.
