Trey Gowdy Says Hillary Clinton's Benghazi Testimony Answers Were Not Accurate

On Sunday, House Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) spoke with NBC's "Meet the Press" about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's 11-hour interview on Thursday.

He said she was not cooperative and explained “She answered the questions, and I would note I don’t think I ever cut her off. She was given ample opportunity, so she answered the questions, yeah, if that’s your definition of cooperative. I’ve always also injected an element of wholeness and completeness and also truthfulness in the definition of cooperative. Did she cooperate in answering the question? Yes. Was it an accurate answer? No.”

Gowdy went on to say “I didn’t send a subpoena to secretary Clinton, it was a voluntary interview, and she wanted it to be in public. I wrote a letter several months ago giving her an option, and she chose public, and that’s well within her right. I can just tell you that of the 50-some-odd interviews that we have done thus far, the vast majority of them have been private, and you don’t see the bickering among the members of Congress in private interviews, you don’t see any of that."

He continued "I can just tell you, in the private interviews, there is never any of what you saw Thursday. It is one hour on the Republican side, one hour on the Democrat side, which is why you’re going to see the next two dozen interviews done privately. The private ones always produce better results.”
