Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy: Hillary Is Being Demonstrably False

So a day after Hillary Clinton went on CNN and lied to Brianna Keilar about never having been under subpoena regarding her emails, the chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, Trey Gowdy, issued a press release explaining why that statement was false, and then made public the pdf of the subpoena addressed and delivered to the Honorable Hillary R. Clinton in March.

Gowdy made a few sparse appearances in some limited media coverage of the story today, but unloaded on the veracity of Mrs. Clinton with former Congressman John Campbell, who is filling in for Hugh Hewitt this week. Here’s a bit of what he had to say.

JC: Chairman Gowdy, I know you’re reluctance to use the word lie. I had that same reluctance when I wore the Congressional pin. You know, oh, this is not true, it’s a falsehood, it’s blah, blah, blah, all that. There’s so much of this, and so much evidence from this woman now, and she was running for president, and the intent is clearly there that she doesn’t want people to know what she did, I think she is lying.

TG: Well, I typically use the phrase demonstrably false. It is false. I can prove that it’s false, and I can prove that you should have known it was false at the time. What I cannot do is climb into someone’s head. I just can’t do it. But for my purposes, it is enough that I know it was false, it was false at the time you said it, and I can make a pretty good circumstantial case that you should have known it was false.

The whole segment is worth the listen, and it makes you wonder if the House shouldn’t be following up outside of the Benghazi lane in which Gowdy has to stay, and explore what other emails Hillary didn’t make public, and issuing further subpoenas.
