At this point it should come as a surprise to absolutely no one when Hillary Clinton is caught lying, but this time Rep. Trey Gowdy is calling her out on it.
During the mostly softball session Tuesday that was CNN journalist Brianna Keilar’s interview with the former secretary of state, Keilar managed to ask a question that ruffled Clinton’s feathers.
Keilar, who recently attended the wedding of a Clinton aide, asked the 2016 Democrat front-runner why she would delete so many emails while facing a subpoena — and Clinton quickly slapped her back into her place.
“You know, you’re starting with so many assumptions,” Clinton scolded the young reporter. “I’ve never had a subpoena.”
But CNN’s Jake Tapper reported on Twitter that Gowdy, R-S.C., said that was a lie.
“She was personally subpoenaed,” Gowdy said.
Whose word is more credible?
Trey Gowdy, a career prosecutor before he went to Congress and the chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi? Or Hillary Clinton, a woman whose public life on the national stage has been marked by one lie after another for almost 25 years?
The Twitterverse offered its opinion.
Clinton: “I’ve never had a subpoena.” Gowdy: “she was personally subpoenaed” the moment Benghazi Cmte learned of personal email/server

@jaketapper Why so many of your colleagues seem to simply shrug off the inconsistencies and outright lies is troubling for a news org.

@jaketapper of course she might’ve forgotten; but doesn’t that implicate her post concussive health condition?

@jaketapper @redsteeze So Hillary actually lied? Shocked I tell you. Just shocked. Fine upstanding citizen like her? Impossible.

@jaketapper It depends on what the meaning of the word “Subpoena” is is.

@jaketapper That interview was perfect example of why so many don’t trust CNN or MSM. Softballs, lies & ZERO follow up. .@brikeilarcnn

@jaketapper @redsteeze Usually a lie like that would hurt a candidate for president…usually.

@jaketapper It was in the emails, you know, the ones that end up in the junk mail and get deleted along with the regular ones.

@jaketapper @EdDriscoll Clinton fails to have even a passing acquaintance with the truth.
