Gowdy: 'My Job Is Not to Generate Ratings for the Republican Party'

On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Wolf,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), the chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discussed is role on that committee.

Host Wolf Blitzer asked Gowdy if he had found new revelations on the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Gowdy said he has not, but if he had he said he wasn’t sure if he would have shared it.

“I don’t think so, but we are still relatively early on and frankly, Wolf, if I had a headline I’m not sure I would share it because I take this responsibility very seriously. My job is not to generate ratings for the Republican Party. My job is not to impact politics. My job is to find out what happened. So even if we had a new revelation, I wouldn’t necessarily share it at this time anyway. We are in the nascent stages of this investigation and I want to do it in a way that inspires the trust and confidence of your viewers.
