Trey Gowdy's Bad Benghazi Hand 26.3.2015 American Prospect
Why won't the chairman of the Benghazi Select Committee show his cards? Every poker player has experienced this moment. The hand is over. You show a winning hand and your opponent sits still. They grimace, while looking down at their cards hoping somehow they will change. Maybe they let out an annoyed sigh.
