Washington, D.C. claims to want bipartisanship, and if anything should inspire unity in the nation’s capital, the multiple administration scandals should, said Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy.

In a lilting Southern drawl, Gowdy mused sardonically about the administration: “It’s been a rough couple of weeks.”

“If anything should be bipartisan, it should be the murder of your four fellow Americans, it should be targeting minority views which our framers went to great lengths to protect,” Gowdy said in an interview last week. “We should be very, very offended at a base level.”
