Trey Gowdy To Chair House Oversight Committee, Finally Get Truth About Benghazi
Fine, he's back to shaving, for now. But this is his best look.
Yr Wonkette would just like to send our best wishes to Rep. Elijah Cummings, the ranking member of the powerful House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, because now that Jason Chaffetz is planning to take a powder (of porn vitamins!) at the end of June, Oversight will have a new Republican chairman to constantly oppose, since the job of the Oversight committee is to treat its Democratic members as a mere oversight. And also to investigate stuff, like how previous chair Darrell Issa investigated Benghazi and Obamacare and the IRS without finding any wrongdoing even without any input from the Dems. Following in the footsteps of such illustrious wastes of time and investigative money as Issa and Chaffetz is Trey Gowdy, who was chosen yesterday by the GOP Steering Committee. Gowdy is made of the same toxic goo as Chaffetz and Issa, with whom he shares many interchangeable internal components.
Gowdy said the usual stuff about being honored to be chosen and looking forward to working along with other members of the committee to do investigative stuff, just as soon as anything worthy of being investigated comes along, although who knows when that will be. If anyone brings any matters of concern to his attention, Oversight will get right on investigating them, you bet. Chaffetz, the previous chair, had been criticized by Democrats for not doing a heck of a lot to look into the many possible conflicts of interest created by having a real-estate idiot and his idiot family infesting the executive branch, although in May Chaffetz finally told the FBI he wanted all their “memoranda, notes, summaries, and recordings” of James Comey’s meetings with Trump no later than May 24; the FBI said "Nahh, there's a special counsel now" and Chaffetz asked again, pretty please, for any FBI records Robert Mueller isn't using at the moment.
Tuesday's Republican Benghazi press conference was as pathetic as you'd imagine.
Gowdy is somehow not convinced Trump is telling the truth about Obama's 'wire tapp' of him!
In conclusion, Trey Gowdy promises to get to the bottom of why Barack Obama unmasked all those Americans names, and Elijah Cummings is set to wonder yet again when the Rs are ever going to run out of these jerks, which is never, the end.
