Trey Gowdy, known for taking no prisoners, looks to be going in for the kill over the Benghazi cover-up

The U.S. Capitol Police are investigating threatening emails against Rep. Trey Gowdy, the South Carolina Republican recently tapped to lead a special panel probing the Benghazi terrorist attacks. 

According to Politico, the threats came after reporters and journalists at other outlets received two emails saying Gowdy would be harmed because of the investigation. Capitol Police would not comment on the scope of the investigation.
