Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) on Monday urged the House Oversight committee to investigate Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius for attempting to obstruct a Congressional subpoena.
“Why does nothing ever happen to people that don’t do what Congress requires them to do?,” Gowdy asked on Fox’s On The Record. “The fact that Kathleen Sebelius, if she told someone not to conform to a subpoena, even if they ultimately do [conform], I would encourage Chairman Issa to still investigate it.”
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) has held numerous hearings on the failed launch of Healthcare.gov.
Gowdy said he was optimistic Issa would comply with his recommendation.
“To me, it’s not all is well that ends well,” he said. “If you counsel someone to impede a Congressional investigation, even if they don’t take your advice, I would still love to see them investigated and my suspicion is that my advice will be well received by Chairman Issa.”
