Authorities investigating email threats against GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy ~ By Joe Newby

Speaker of the House,
Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)
In a statement, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said Gowdy is "as dogged, focused, and serious-minded as they come." He also said Gowdy's background as a prosecutor makes him the ideal choice to lead the investigation.

"I know he shares my commitment to get to the bottom of this tragedy and will not tolerate any stonewalling from the Obama administration," Boehner added. "I plan to ensure he and his committee have the strongest authority possible to root out all the facts. This is a big job, but Rep. Gowdy has the confidence of this conference, and I know his professionalism and grit will earn him the respect of the American people."

Gowdy is also well-liked and respected among grassroots conservatives who appreciate his "take no prisoners" style when dealing with liberals. In June 2012, for example, he minced no words when he called House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., "mind-numbingly stupid" and suggested she visit a doctor.
In Joe Newby's blog on the other day, he brings us the story about Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) being the target of two email death threats after being picked to head the new Select Committee on Benghazi, just approved by the House. As you will see in the video below, he doesn't seem to be overly concerned about it.

As I pointed out in the description of the video above, while joking about worrying about death threats from his wife, there is somebody that should concern him more: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who will surely be facing some questioning from the new select committee. With her possible nomination for President coming from the Democrat party in 2016, who knows. It will be very interesting to find out who sent the threatening emails, and if there is any connection to Hillary. Even if there was no real intention to harm Gowdy, it is still that kind of intimidation that makes you say, "Hmmm." Just sayin'...

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC)
On Monday, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., was tapped to head a select committee on Benghazi. On Tuesday, Politico reported that the U.S. Capitol Police are investigating threatening emails targeting the South Carolina Republican.

According to Politico, the threats came after reporters and journalists at other outlets received two emails saying Gowdy would be harmed because of the investigation. Capitol Police would not comment on the scope of the investigation, Politico added, but “an active, open investigation" is underway, according to Officer Shennell Antrobus.
