House Benghazi Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy was pulled into a fiery exchange with Democrats on the panel Thursday when they surprisingly called on him to release the transcript of Hillary Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal’s June 2015 deposition.
“I move that we put into the record the entire transcript of Sidney Blumenthal,” Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the ranking Democrat on the committee, shouted. “Let’s do the transcript! That way the world can see it!”
A second Democrat can be heard on video “seconding” the motion.
“We’re not going to take that up a hearing,” Gowdy replied.
At that moment, Clinton, who appeared to testify before the committee, can be seen shaking her head and laughing.
