GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy Reveals Launch Of US House Probe Into Rob Porter Employment Scandal [VIDEO]

Raw Story reports:

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) revealed that Congress has launched an investigation into White House staff secretary Rob Porter’s employment despite credible allegations of domestic abuse. Gowdy, who announced his retirement from Congress earlier this month, told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota the House Oversight Committee he chairs opened an investigation Tuesday into the Porter scandal. “We did last night,” Gowdy said.

“I’m going to direct questions to the FBI that I expect them to answer. If they don’t answer them, then they’re going to need to give me a really good reason. You’ll learn that reason, and you can judge whether or not it’s a sufficient reason or not. Unless you’re Jack Bauer (from Fox’s ’24’), you can’t make people answer questions. I’ve been trying for seven years to get people to answer questions without a whole lot of success.”
