Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina -- who serves as the chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi -- admitted to reporters that the 11-hour hearing on Oct. 22 in which his panel questioned former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not yield any new findings.

“Uh,” Gowdy said when questioned about the results of the hearing on Oct. 22, The Huffington Post reports. He then paused for several seconds before responding.

“I think some of Jimmy Jordan's questioning -- well, when you say new today, we knew some of that already," he added. "We knew about the emails. In terms of her testimony? I don't know that she testified that much differently today than she has the previous time she testified."

Gowdy’s Benghazi committee, which has been investigating the handling of the 2012 attack at a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, has reportedly cost more than $4.5 million while uncovering little evidence as to Clinton’s alleged misleading of the public throughout and after the attack.
