Gowdy to Rice: ‘You Come Before This Committee and You Tell Us!”

South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy let it rip at today’s House hearing on the Benghazi attacks, demanding answers from the administration and calling out Susan Rice and Jay Carney by name.

The video of Rep. Gowdy’s full speech is below.
