Gowdy blasts administration: ‘We should be very, very offended at a base level’ [VIDEO]

Trey Gowdy; did you just spend the morning dumpster diving? Trey Gowdy; did you just spend the morning dumpster diving?  

Washington, D.C. claims to want bipartisanship, and if anything should inspire unity in the nation’s capital, the multiple administration scandals should, said Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy.

In a lilting Southern drawl, Gowdy mused sardonically about the administration: “It’s been a rough couple of weeks.”

“If anything should be bipartisan, it should be the murder of your four fellow Americans, it should be targeting minority views which our framers went to great lengths to protect,” Gowdy said in an interview last week. “We should be very, very offended at a base level.”

“With Benghazi and the IRS I want to know the facts,” he said. “It’s our job, with Benghazi and with the IRS, to prove to our fellow citizens, both those that follow politics every day and those who maybe do not, why it matters, what happened… I’m not interested in the political analysis.”

In a moment of wry humor, Gowdy observed, “I think that the problem with the IRS is that I don’t think that there are going to be too many defenders of the IRS”

Look for the rest of Gowdy’s interview this week.
