Rep. Trey Gowdy, outgoing chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said Sunday that Republicans have done more in the last week to investigate Ivanka Trump’s emails than Democrats ever did on the 2012 Benghazi attack.
“Congress has a responsibility to make sure that the records and the Presidential Records Act is complied with, and that is true no matter who the person is, whether it’s Secretary Clinton or whether it’s Tom Perez or whether it’s Ivanka Trump,” Mr. Gowdy said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“So we’ve taken steps, we’ve done more in the last week than some of my House Democrat colleagues did the entire time we were looking into Benghazi,” he said. “So I’m at peace with what we’ve done, but we need the information and we need it quickly.”
The South Carolina Republican said he has already written to the White House requesting information about the First Daughter’s use of a private email account in her capacity as adviser to her father, and has spoken to Ms. Trump’s attorney and Rep. Elijah Cummings, the committee’s ranking Democrat. – READ MORE
