Donald Trump says House Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy has been making a "big pivot" away from Hillary Clinton in the days prior to her Thursday appearance before the panel.

In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Tuesday night, the front-running Republican presidential candidate says there's been a shift in tone about the committee.

"[Y]ou had a congressman, Republican, go against Trey Gowdy and all of the people, as you know," he said, referring to remarks by California Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy.

"And then you had a whistleblower come out. So that hurt. That was not exactly positive," he added, in reference to Bradley Podliska, a former investigator on the Republican side of the panel, who went public with allegations about the committee's mission to destroy Clinton's political reputation.

On Sunday, Gowdy declared he told fellow GOP colleagues to "shut up talking about things that you don't know anything about."

"And unless you're on the committee, you have no idea what we've done, why we've done it and what new facts we have found."

In an interview with Politico published the same day, Gowdy adds: "[W]hen I hear that 'it's about her,' it is so hard for me."

"You are not worth 18 months of my life, with all due respect. Four dead people are, but you're not," Gowdy said about Clinton.

Trump says the remarks bothered him.

"[I] watched Trey, who I do respect, I think he's a terrific guy, but he seemed to be doing a big pivot," Trump says.

A video of the remarks was posted by Mediaite.

"He said, 'Well this isn't about Hillary Clinton.'

"You know I'm pretty good at figuring this stuff out, and he seemed to be doing Sean, I'm sure you saw it, he seemed to be doing a big pivot away from Hillary Clinton," he says.

"And I was trying to figure out what that was all about. So you may not be as happy as you think with these hearings. I just don't know. The hearings — I was looking forward to them."

"But with all that's happening, and I was surprised that he pivoted away so much from Hillary," he added. "He said these hearings are not about her, actually — we want to discuss other people much more so. And it sounded like he was sort of pulling away from going after her. So I'm going to have to see what the hearings are all about."
