Gowdy: I Never Told The Former Benghazi Committee Staffer To Focus On Clinton


Trey Gowdy (R-SC), the chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, reportedly said Sunday that he had never met Bradley Podliska, a man who said he was fired as an investigator, in part, for refusing to focus his investigation on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, according to Fox.

Podliska, who was an investigator on the committee for 10 months, told news outlets Saturday that he planned to file a federal lawsuit against the committee for wrongful termination.

Gowdy said that he had never met him and never told him to focus his investigation on Clinton, according to Fox.

Gowdy called Podliska’s job performance “deficient,” according to the report

“Because I do not know him, and cannot recall ever speaking to him, I can say for certain he was never instructed by me to focus on Clinton, nor would he be a credible person to speak on my behalf,” Gowdy said, as quoted by Fox.
