RUSH: Darn right I was surprised. I couldn't believe it happened, but they did it. Because the Republicans are not stopping the Democrats. There isn't any pushback, yet they're going to have this special Select Committee looking into Benghazi. And furthermore, they're going to put a real tiger as the chairman, Trey Gowdy. Boehner has announced a special House committee to investigate Benghazi, something that is long overdue.
We just interviewed Trey Gowdy for the current issue of The Limbaugh Letter. This guy is a former prosecutor, South Carolina, and he just takes no prisoners. He's going to head up the special Select Committee, which means that it's not something just pro forma. Selecting Gowdy is a great indicator. Put it this way. If you really didn't want this committee to do anything, if all you wanted was the news that you had appointed it, then you wouldn't put Trey Gowdy in the chairmanship role because he's going to get to the bottom of this no matter what. He's not going to leave one stone unturned here. Boehner has to know that, which tells me, of course, that Boehner's serious. Well, I don't want to go that far.
