    Gowdy: "So you see no potential conflict of interest, you don't think this is an extraordinary fact pattern, you don't trust your fellow citizens to make the call."

    Tiefer: "It's not a matter of trusting ... you can't run the Department of Justice and decide extraordinary questions of the law by poll number, no I ... "

    Gowdy: "Neither can you prejudge the outcome of an investigation that hasn't even started. You can't do that when you're the chief law enforcement officer for this country. And it wasn't a 'hot mic' situation [when Obama said there "isn't a smidgeon of corruption"] where he was whispering to Eric Holder, it's on the most watched television show in our culture [The O'Reilly Factor]. He prejudges and investigation, and you want us to expect that the outcome of this is going to have any validity or credibility. It's not gonna happen."

    Gowdy snookered him. A professor of constitutional law should know better than the cross a former federal prosecutor. There's a very good chance the former prosecutor actually knows what he's talking about, while for the professor it's all theory.

    Great stuff. :thumbsup:

    Love to see this man operate!!!
    We must keep him in perspective, however, as it could be very easy to get caught up in his grilling of the forked toungued leftists and let him become THE conservative saviour, thus unconsciously, replacing God.
    We certainly do not want to fall into the trap of the left in thinking that ANY political leader is THE answer.
    We must keep in mind that no matter how much we like, trust or feel encouraged by, any political entity is only a tool in God's hands.:godisgood:

    When Gowdy went off on Lois Lehrner.... that was one of the best things I've seen happen in Washington DC ( District of Criminals)

    He is just a good old South Carolina boy. Hope he runs against Graham next time around. Saw an old clip of him recently as a US Attorney. The man is sharp. He pegged Lerner at the first hearing but Issa for whatever reason did not pick up on it.

    I suspect some heads will roll in the Benghazi investigation and they should.
