Rep. Trey Gowdy has yet to call it quits concerning Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and the Benghazi attack of Sept. 11, 2012.
In a video re-published to YouTube on Oct. 15 because it is more important than ever to remember these words, Gowdy’s 2013 statement was so pointed and his final statement so compelling that even aides and comrades standing by seemed shocked.
“Make no mistake: Justice will be done,” he asserted, quoting, of all people, President Barack Obama.
In his outrage, he turned his line of questions to the media.
“Do you know why we were the last flag flying in Benghazi?” he asked. “Do you know why requests for additional security were denied? Do you know why an ambassador asking for more security days and weeks before he was murdered, and those requests went unheeded?”
“Do you know the origin of this mythology that it was spawned as a spontaneous reaction to a video?” he asked, referencing a video that Hillary Clinton called “an awful internet video” and then blamed for the assault on the Americans in Benghazi.
“Do you know where that started?”
“In conclusion, Congress is supposed to provide oversight. The voters are supposed to provide oversight. And you (the media) are supposed to provide oversight. That’s why you have special liberties, and that’s why you have special protections,” he said.
“I am not surprised that the president of the United States called this a ‘phony scandal.’ I’m not surprised Secretary Clinton asked, ‘What difference does it make?’” he continued. “I’m not even surprised that J. Comey said that Benghazi happened a long time ago.”
“I’m just surprised at how many people bought it.”

Collects papers, walks away from podium.
Now that’s a mic drop far more powerful than any President Barack Obama ever gave.
