Trey Gowdy came to prominence when he was part of the committee inspecting Hillary Clinton in reference to her crimes committed during the 2012 Benghazi, Libya terrorist attack on American servicemen and embassy workers. President Obama has gone to immense lengths to try and quiet Gowdy to cover for Clinton.
President Obama likely is trying to pressure Gowdy because he knows that his and the Pentagon’s reputation are tied to Hillary Clinton’s legacy because of the fact that he appointed her as Secretary of State.
When the Pentagon tried silencing Gowdy he struck back hard in a scorching hot letter to the Defense Secretary Ash Carter. In the letter he insisted that the Pentagon’s report,
“intentionally mischaracterizes both the nature of the Committee’s investigation and its interaction with the Department of Defense. It is also riddled with factual inaccuracies, which not only does a disservice to the public but also does a disservice to the women and men who work for the Department of Defense.”
He went on to say,
“Your staff is welcome to waste taxpayer dollars writing partisan, factually deficient letters to our Committee, coordinate the language with House Democrats, and then leak it to the media. That is your prerogative.”
Gowdy has received a lot of criticism for his actions and his placement on the committee. Many characterize him as nothing more than a partisan ambulance chaser looking for his fifteen minutes. While others, mostly conservatives, view him as a truth seeker who is trying to hold Clinton accountable for at least one of the numerous felony crimes she has committed.
President Obama and his administration is so used to bullying people into doing what he wants that he cannot stand it when someone finally stands up to him. It bothered him when FBI Director James Comey stood up to him and it is bothering him now when Trey Gowdy is standing up to him. The President is learning the heard lesson that some people cannot be bought no matter how hard you try.
