Rep. Trey Gowdy: Witness list will include Cheryl Mills,Huma Abedin and Sid Blumenthal

On Wednesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show, House Benghazi Select Committee Chairman Rep Trey Gowdy, the chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, said Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin, Sidney Blumenthal, Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes will be on his witness list to testify before the committee or commit to a transcribed interview.

Asked if his witness list would include Cheryl Mills, the former Secretary of State’s chief of staff, Gowdy responded,  “absolutely, and it was always going to include Ms. Mills. But, if you studied the correspondence between the State Department and Secretary Clinton after she decided to return the public record to the public a couple of months ago, that correspondence was directed to Cheryl Mills. So, Cheryl Mills needs to be talked to, not only with respect to Benghazi, but also with respect to the retention of the public records by Secretary Clinton after she separated.”

Huma Abedin will also be included on the witness list, Gowdy said because, “you have to if you want to write the final, definitive accounting of what happened before, during, and after Benghazi.”

He also said that Sidney Blumenthal, Ben Rhodes and Susan Rice will be on the list, “because I think your listeners would be interested in the chronology. We are taking the witnesses from the Department of State and CIA whose identities need to be preserved, we’re doing them first, and those are transcribed interviews. Then we are moving into the people who are more well known, the Susan Rice’s, the Ben Rhodes, and yes, you can include Sidney Blumenthal.”
