Gowdy: Kerry ‘Protecting’ Hillary with ‘Staggering’ State Department Stonewalling

Tuesday on “The Mike Gallagher Show,” House Select Benghazi Committee chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said he was “dead wrong” to think Secretary of State John Kerry would care enough about his own reputation to protect his predecessor Hillary Clinton by having the State Department stonewall on producing documents for Gowdy’s committee.

When asked if he would have done anything differently during his committees investigation Gowdy said, “I would have been less naive… it took me a little while longer that it should have to figure out the State Department had no interest whatsoever in producing documents to me.”

He added, “I guess I just assumed that Secretary Kerry would care enough about his reputation that he wouldn’t waste his capitol protecting his predecessor. But I have been dead wrong. We are having a very difficult time getting documents from the State Department and frankly their defense of her has been staggering.”
