Rep. Trey Gowdy: Either Petraeus Will Come and Testify to Congress Or He Will Be Subpoenaed (Video)

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) told Greta Van Susteren tonight that Petraeus will be questioned before Congress despite his resignation today.

“The fact that he’s resigned and had an affair has nothing to do with whether he will be subpoenaed to Congress. I hope we don’t have to subpoena a four star general and a former CIA director. I would hope he would come voluntarily but if he won’t he will be subpoenaed. And none of what happened today is an offense to a subpoena… He’s either a witness in our case in chief or he’s gonna be a rebuttal witness if Susan Rice and others blame him for their failure of intelligence and failure of information. But there is no way we can get to the bottom of Benghazi without David Petraeus.”

    [At the time, news outlets reported this as if Obama did not realize he was being recorded, yet there were cameras and microphones all over the place recording every second. Obama had to know the world could hear his words, but I am certain he did not care. When I heard those words, I knew the fix was in, although I still…..] maybe we were screwed no matter the outcome.
    the fabric of the nation is corroded.

    “However, apparently Hillary has declared herself “unavailable” for the hearings.”

    I reckon Hillary has also made herself “unavailable” in other ways, if you know what I mean, which likely explains why Bubba had to get his kicks elsewhere.

    So, since Petraeus resigned, does the exempt him from any “executive privilege” Obama might issue?

  • snap boy

    Either Petraeus is an honorable patriot or he will first dodge the subpoena and then lie if he has to. Does anyone else wonder what else was/should have been uncovered during the confirmation process that the Obama administration is holding to keep him quiet?

    #3 re:

    “Also, since the affair is “out”, the leftists have nothing to hold over Petraeus’ head.

    Don’t put it past the power behind this vindictive administration to give up simply because Petraeus revealed the affair so they couldn’t hold it against him and his family. Merciless tentacles of this power hungry medussa can reach well beyond Petraeus to manipulate him through those he holds most dear.

    There will be no hearings and if there are, nothing will come of it. Stuff happens and, horrible as it was, stuff happened in Benghazi. Get over it.

    Trey leaves out the 3rd option….The Kim Jung Un style mortar round execution…>

    or the found dead in his car of an apparent suicide like one of Obama’s top secret service agents….>

    A man of sound character and integrity? An honest man? It says that we shall know them by their fruit and his fruit looks rotten.

    His departure from being a man of integrity and character has led him into the realms of lying, obfuscation, and omitting facts in order to protect an evil man knowing that Obama is antithetical to everything Petraeus supposedly served his country for.

    This country is sinking into a cesspool of depravity at an alarming rate. Does anyone trust anything that comes out of the government’s various agencies anymore? We already know that the liberal state run media can’t be trusted.

    these weenie republicans had better stay on this like stink on doo-doo. Keep up the pressure until this house of cards come crashing down. We were played in this election and nobody cared. So stay on this and let the MSM sqeal about racism and all the usual stuff. I got news for you, they hate you anyway so you might as well do your job. …you might just turn some of that hate into respect. There was felonious malfeasance in this case and four heroes are DEAD! Do not let up!!!

    It has been “claimed” that Obama didn’t give the order to get bin Laden. The way it went down was that if the mission failed in any way, it would have been immediate news that Panetta was a failure, and Obama was not at fault. Because the mission succeeded, Obama has taken all of the credit. Panetta is no hero, he was just dumb enough to be willing to throw himself on the stake in case of failure. That mission didn’t happen without Obama’s approval.

    Lawless government?
