Trey Gowdy almost shed a tear (or two) for the victims of pedophilia. He was able to maintain his composure, allowing him to call out those who have chosen to obstruct the investigation into a sophisticated, elite pedophilia ring.
On his first day back to congress, Gowdy’s emotional speech took the room by storm.
“I want you to give me a list of the providers that are giving you a hard time. We are going to have another [hearing] here. We are going to have them come and publicly explain why they are having a hard time complying with law enforcement in child exploitation and child abuse cases.“
“My guess is that will be a very tough public explanation for them. So, give me the names and the providers that you are having a hard time dealing with. And I may not be able to make them stop doing it, but I can make them come and explain why they are doing it.”
“And my guess is they won’t want to do that.“
“More than anything else we are united in our inability to get the images out of our heads.”
“Johnny’s got them, Judge Poe has them, and you have them, and any of us who did child pornography or child sex abuse cases.”
“Enforcing the rule of law and protecting human dignity through a fair justice system are among the chief responsibilities of Congress.”
“Victims of child pornography endure severe trauma mentally, physically and emotionally.”
