Gowdy Receiving Threats for Heading Benghazi Committee

by Andrew Johnson

Capitol Police are currently undertaking “an active, open investigation” following e-mail threats toward Representative Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) for his role as chairman of the special House panel investigating the September 2012 Benghazi attacks.

Politico reports that it, along with other news organizations, received two e-mails on Tuesday that threatened Gowdy would be harmed for leading the select committee.

Following the assassination attempt on Gabby Giffords in 2011, Capitol Police investigate all threats against members, particularly death threats.
