UPDATE below.

Trey Gowdy, R-SC is a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform . A former federal prosecutor and District Attorney, Gowdy's understanding of the Fast & Furious fiasco is much deeper than the average person or pundit.

Today, Gowdy unloaded on the Obama Administration for Fast and Furious.

“The President claims he knew nothing about Fast and Furious prior to Agent Brian Terry's murder and no one at the Department of Justice has suggested the President was part of the drafting of a demonstrably false letter dated February 4, 2011, to a committee of congress.”

“So, my question to the President is: What are you asserting privilege over? Did you know about Fast and Furious before Brian Terry's murder? Did you approve the operation? Did you participate in the drafting of a false letter to congress? Unless the answer to all of those questions is yes, there is no matter overwhich the President can assert privilege. It is merely the latest ploy to delay the investigation.”

But, it's really better to see him say it. Click here.

Gowdy suggests Nancy Pelosi needs to go to the doctor after her ridiculous claim about the Eric Holder contempt vote.

“I don’t know what was wrong with her yesterday or whenever she said that,” Gowdy said. “But I would schedule an appointment with my doctor if she thinks that we are doing this to suppress votes this fall. That is mind-numbingly stupid.”
