Trey Gowdy's Opening Statement At the Benghazi Hearing

The Republican chairman of the new Benghazi select committee pledged Wednesday during the first public hearing to conduct an investigation "worthy of the memory of those who died and worthy of the trust of our fellow citizens." "I remain hopeful there are still things left in our country that can transcend politics," South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, the chairman of the committee, said in his opening statement in a Capitol Hill hearing room. "I remain convinced our fellow citizens deserve all of the facts of what happened before, during, and after the attacks in Benghazi and they deserve an investigative process worthy of the memory of those who died and worthy of the trust of our fellow citizens."
