Rep. Trey Gowdy’s Explosive Claim About Benghazi Survivors

"What creates the appearance and perhaps the reality of a cover-up?"

House Oversight Committee member Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-SC, listens during a politically contentious session on whether to compel Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to testify about the extra scrutiny the IRS gave to tea party and other conservative groups that applied for tax-exempt status, on Capitol Hill in Washington, in Washington, Friday, June 28, 2013.

The Obama administration is "changing names" of the Benghazi survivors and "creating aliases" to keep them hidden from congressional investigators and the American people, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) told Greta Van Susteren on Thursday night. He also said the administration is "dispersing them around the country" to keep them out of sight.

Gowdy's stunning claims were overshadowed by CNN's bombshell report that revealed there were "dozens" of CIA operatives on the ground in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, the night of the deadly attack that killed four Americans. Meanwhile, the CIA is taking "unprecedented" to keep whatever it was doing in Benghazi a secret, according to the report.

"Stop and think what things are most calculated to get at the truth? Talk to people with first-hand knowledge. What creates the appearance and perhaps the reality of a cover-up? Not letting us talk with people who have the most amount of information, dispersing them around the country and changing their names," Gowdy said.

It should be noted that Gowdy did not present evidence to back up his explosive claim, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have any.

These new Benghazi revelations come at the same time that the Obama administration has decided to start referring to the Benghazi and IRS scandals as "phony."
