Look everybody! Trey Gowdy is here! The GOP’s mop-boy for the real heavy hitters (like Devin Nunes and Chuck Grassley) has resurfaced to blast the FBI…after others had beaten him to it.
Appearing on Fox News’ ‘The Ingraham Angle’ on December 29, Rep. Gowdy (R-SC) lamented that his chairmanship of the House Oversight Committee investigation into Hillary Clinton’s criminal use of a private email server had ground to a halt because the Bureau and the Department of Justice (in the Obama and the Trump administrations) had REFUSED to turn over requested documents.
That was apparently all it took to shake Gowdy off the trail.
“An investigation is only as good as its access to documents and witnesses,” he is quoted by the Independent Journal Review (IJR) as saying.
Gowdy’s mercurial commitment to nailing Hillary Inc. to the wall aside, he still does offer up some great insight and fires off great questions.
On December 13, 2017, Gowdy was once again on Fox News, reports The Blaze, and began to publicly voice his frustration with the FBI and DOJ.
Following the revelation that FBI agents Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Bruce Ohr were political hacks looking to bring down the President (a crime of the century that has been ignored by the ‘media’!) Gowdy tells Fox host Martha MaCallum, “I’m still trying to figure out why three FBI agents are discussing politics in the Deputy Director’s office, because you’re not supposed to discuss politics on federal ground and FBI agents aren’t supposed to engage in politics for Hatch Act reasons.”
Exactly a week later, Gowdy joined forces with Republican warrior Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia in sending a letter to the DOJ demanding that Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Chief of Staff James Rybicki, and F.B.I. Counsel Lisa Page appear for questioning before Congress, reported Vanity Fair.
The former director of the FBI, James Comey, is still in Gowdy’s sights as well. Gowdy told Foxs’ MacCallum in relation to Comey’s grossly premature exoneration of Clinton:
“If you have made the decision not to charge someone in May of 2016 before you have interviewed two-dozen witnesses, before you have interviewed the target of the investigation, then you’re going to have to explain how you reached that decision not to charge.”
You do indeed. Let us hope that if Comey is ever again questioned he is not allowed to weasel out of saying what he knows like McCabe. Comey needs to be the ethical person he so often tweets about and tell THE TRUTH!
Stay on them Gowdy, every minute of every day!
