Trey Gowdy continually asked questions Hillary Clinton couldn’t answer.

And while the media tried to minimize his committee’s investigation into her conduct, her team took it very seriously.

In fact, new emails show Clinton aides were terrified they couldn’t answer any of the tough questions Gowdy posed.

The WikiLeaks email dump continues to provide insight into the bunker mentality of Clinton and her team.

One question Gowdy continually demanded Hillary answer was why there were no emails from an October 2011 trip to Libya.

This visit was made after the disastrous decision to go to war in Libya to depose strongman Muammar Gaddafi, which created a vacuum filled by terrorists.

Emails between Clinton staffers displayed their fear because they had no answers for why there were missing emails, and instead tried to spin their way out of trouble with typical Clintonian semantics.

The Clinton panic was in response to Congressman Gowdy’s appearance on CBS’ Face the Nation.

During his interview, Gowdy hammered Clinton for not turning over all her emails which clouded the Benghazi Select Committee’s investigation into the tragedy.

From the transcript of Gowdy’s appearance:

“GOWDY: Yes, sir. There are gaps of months and months and months. And if you think to that iconic picture of her on a C-17 flying to Libya, she has sunglasses on and she has her handheld device in her hand, we have no e-mails from that day. In fact, we have no e-mails from that trip.

So, it’s strange credibility to believe that if you’re on your way to Libya to discuss Libyan policy that there’s not a single document that has been turned over to Congress. So, there are huge gaps. And with respect to the president, it’s not up to Secretary Clinton to decide what is a public record and what’s not.

We need someone — and, frankly, I have lost confidence in the State Department to make that determination. They’re the ones who allowed this arrangement. There’s the ones who did nothing abut this arrangement until they got a request from our committee. Frankly, I think your viewers are entitled to a neutral, detached arbiter to determine what’s a public record, first of all, because that never should have left the custody of the government, and, secondarily, what is our committee entitled to?

We’re not entitled to everything. I don’t want everything. I just want everything related to Libya and Benghazi.

SCHIEFFER: What else is there to know about Gaza (sic) — I mean, and Libya?

GOWDY: Well, there are three tranches.

So, why was — why did we have facility that didn’t meet any security specification whatsoever? They had a separate classification for our facility at Benghazi. Why? So, why, in spite of the escalating violence, did we lower our security profile, instead of raise it? So that’s the before.

The during, our military response, where were our assets located? After all, this is the anniversary of 9/11. So, if you are better prepared to defend the embassy in Paris than you are the embassy in Tripoli, I think my fellow citizens want to know that.

And then, thirdly, the aftermath. I continue to naively believe that people have a right to expect their government to tell them the truth in the aftermath of a tragedy. And we know that the video was not connected. And we know it was not a spontaneous protest. What we don’t know is how early the administration knew those two narratives were false and whether…”

Gowdy was clearly on the right path.

Clinton didn’t turn over all her emails because she deleted them despite them being under subpoena.
