Donald Trump said Tuesday night that a recent comment from the chairman of the House Benghazi committee had him worried about whether or not the upcoming hearings would leave him disappointed.
The Republican presidential candidate suggested to host Sean Hannity that Rep. Trey Gowdy's (R-S.C.) insistence his committee was not particularly zeroing in on Hillary Clinton was an alarming sign.
"Yesterday, I watched Trey, who I do respect, I think he is a terrific guy, but he seemed to be doing a big pivot," Trump said. "He said, 'Well, this isn't about Hillary Clinton.' You know, I'm pretty good at figuring this stuff out."
"He seemed to be doing Sean, I'm sure you saw it, he seemed to be doing a big pivot away from Hillary Clinton. And I was trying to figure out what that was all about," the real estate tycoon continued.
"So you may not be as happy as you think with these hearings," Trump concluded. "I Just don't know. The hearings, I was looking forward to them, but with all that's happening — and I was surprised he pivoted away so much from Hillary. He said, 'These hearings are not about her. Actually, we want to discuss other people much more so.' And it sounded like he was sort of pulling away from going after her."
Gowdy said over the weekend that he had encouraged his GOP colleagues who are not on the committee to "shut up" and not talk to the media about about things you don’t know anything about."
