Well, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) is on the case!

Read the entire thing. It’s extraordinary, on several levels: First, Gowdy summons his prosecutorial vigor to absolutely demolish the ranking Democrat on the House Select Committee on Benghazi. Democrats have seized upon erstwhile Speaker-in-waiting Kevin McCarthy’s ill-advised comments to try to shut down the panel’s probe — a continuation of their ongoing, partisan efforts to dismiss its focus as a “phony scandal” and to portray the investigation as a political witch hunt. Gowdy has been unsparing in his rejection of McCarthy’s since-abandoned characterization and unflagging in his defense of the committee’s work. In response to Democrat Elijah Cummings’ endless attacks and accusations, the South Carolina Republican drops the hammer.
“Dropping of hammer”? Totally achieved. People are fist pumping:

For an encore, what about this?
Sr. House aide tells me private, ongoing chatter suggests only 2 names can win requisite votes w/ chance to heal caucus: Ryan & Gowdy…
