Nope, Nothing Partisan About Nothingburger Gowdy [/SARC]

The headline says it all:

Trey Gowdy, who headed the Benghazi investigation for more than 2 years, claims Mueller is taking too long

As he article points out:
Gowdy chaired the House Select Committee on Benghazi, an investigation that lasted more than two and a half years and resulted in no criminal indictments.

By comparison, Mueller in 13 months has "issued more than 100 criminal counts against 20 people and three companies," The New York Times reports. "Of the 20 people, five — including three Trump associates — have pleaded guilty. Fourteen are Russians accused of meddling in the 2016 presidential election."
Gowdry's investigation, which was a partisan affair from Day One, despite his best efforts and millions of dollars, produced a big steaming pile of nothingburgers.

Gowdry is a hack and a tool. He makes that evident every time he opens his ignorant yap.

He turned up a lot more than Muller did.

Bullshit. No arrests, no indictments, no convictions. Gowdry had nothing.

I understand your confusion, Bradley. There's a difference between what your choice of news media tells you was turned up (pundits blathering, snappy headlines, talk radio yapping) and the factual evidence of what is actually turned up (charges, pleas, indictments, convictions). You've clearly mistaken the former for the latter.
