Trey Gowdy :
“Well, I have evidence that not only are they hiding it, there is an intent to hide it,” he claimed. “I can’t disclose that evidence yet, but I have evidence that there was a systematic, intentional decision to withhold certain documents from Congress”.

Go to the 2:30 mark.
If you actually have ‘evidence’ and
‘We The People’ pay your salary – then show us the ‘evidence’.
Why are YOU with holding it?
For a 2 year political show?
Or getting the ‘truth’?
‘Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said the special committee he’ll lead on Benghazi could continue into the 2016 campaign, when Hillary Clinton might be running for the White House’.
‘Asked about that possibility Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Gowdy said the length of his work would depend on the administration’s level of cooperation’.
“It would be shame on us if we intentionally dragged this out for political expediency,” said Gowdy, the special committee’s chairman’.
Senator Graham called President Obama a ‘scumbag’.
Right word….wrong persons – plural……
‘Gowdy on Wednesday called on other Republicans to refrain from fundraising off Benghazi because he said the issue “transcends politics.”
‘Gowdy later said the NRCC should stop the campaign. “I cannot and will not raise money on Benghazi,” he told CNN’s Jake Tapper’.
‘But that hasn’t always been the case’.
‘Last September, Gowdy attended a “barbecue fundraiser” for Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) in Indian Land, SC and according to local newspaper the Lancaster News, Gowdy talked Benghazi with attendees’:
‘Gowdy addressed the issue of “phony scandals,” in which the government is describing the scandals surrounding the IRS and NSA as fake, or phony’.
‘Referring to the scandal surrounding the murders of four American citizens in the Benghazi attacks, Gowdy said this is not the case’.
“It is a scandal,” he said. “But it is not a phony scandal.”
‘Two weeks later, Gowdy spoke at a campaign event for Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) where he, according to the Greenville News, praised Graham on Benghazi’ :
‘Friday morning at Furman, Gowdy shared the credit on the Benghazi issue with Graham, telling students, “There is no one in Congress who has done more on the issue of Benghazi than your senior senator.”
‘Gowdy also said [Rep. Jason] Chaffetz [R-UT] has done more than anyone else in the House to hold Obama accountable on Benghazi’.
‘Gowdy and Chaffetz attended a private fundraiser for Chaffetz at a Greenville home Thursday night’.

‘A post on the National Republican Congressional Committee website dated May 6 is titled “You Can Become a Benghazi Watchdog Right Now.”
“House Republicans will make sure that no one will get away from [Trey] Gowdy and the Select Committee,” the blog post says. “This is going to be a national effort for a national investigation.”
‘Once a visitor to the site enters a name, email and ZIP code, it asks for a donation to “stop Democrats from controlling all of Washington.”

Republicans – Hate….Fear….Loathing.
‘For “Establishment” Republicans, the good news is that their Senate candidate in North Carolina, House Speaker Thom Tillis, won yesterday’s GOP primary without a runoff’.
‘The bad news is that the victor emerges from the contest hard to distinguish from the extremists he defeated’.
‘A 2011 video in which Tillis cooly lectured a Republican group on how to pit people with disabilities against people receiving other forms of public assistance, in what he called a “divide and conquer” strategy’.

If the Stay is vacated or thew appeal fails, what htis does is give Walker and in fact all outside money a free pass to speand not just how much they want but in any way they want…..without limits.
Update : ‘But on Wednesday, the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit stayed the injunction, calling for a lower court review of an earlier, separate appeal in the case’.

‘A federal judge ordered a halt Tuesday to the John Doe investigation into campaign spending and fundraising by Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign and conservative groups, saying the effort appeared to violate one of the group’s free speech rights’.
‘In his 26-page decision, U.S. District Judge Rudolph Randa in Milwaukee told prosecutors to immediately stop the long-running, five-county probe into possible illegal coordination between Walker’s campaign, the Wisconsin Club for Growth and a host of others during the 2011 and 2012 recall elections’.
U.S. District Judge Rudolph Randa :
“The (Wisconsin Club for Growth and its treasurer) have found a way to circumvent campaign finance laws’,
‘And that circumvention should not and cannot be condemned or restricted’.
‘Instead, it should be recognized as promoting political speech, an activity that is ‘ingrained in our culture,'” Randa wrote, quoting from a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision’.
‘He ordered an immediate halt to the investigation, the return of all property seized during it, and the destruction of any information and materials gained in the investigation. He told the Wisconsin Club for Growth it did not need to cooperate with prosecutors in any way’.
