Congressman Trey Gowdy isn’t one to mince words.
He’s become a hero to conservatives for putting heat on liberals during congressional hearings so we can all enjoy watching them squirm.
And now with the scandal of Comey’s firing and the subsequent appointment of an independent prosecutor for Russiagate, Gowdy is cutting through the muck to make the obvious point.
In his latest Fox interview he argued that there was plainly collusion between Loretta Lynch’s Department of Justice and Hillary’s campaign in order to prevent her from being indicted during the election.
And James Comey was simply making a show of things to keep the DOJ happy.
So, Comey shouldn’t have been fired because why?
Here’s more from Redstate…
Three days ago, Trey Gowdy, who is hair (hahaha) apparent to succeed Jason Chaffetz as chair of the House oversight committee, appeared on Fox News’s “The Story” with Martha McCallum.
I’m taking the transcript from Daily Caller but you really need to watch the video:
“I think he had access to information that, because he is a stand-up guy he’s not gonna disseminate classified information (though God knows everybody else is)…so all your viewers see is this meeting on the tarmac,” he explained.
“Jim Comey had access to additional information that I am convinced left him with no other choice but to make the decision he made in July,” Gowdy said.
McCallum asked if he was implying that Comey was pressured into clearing Clinton of all wrongdoing.
“No…he wanted to safeguard the integrity of the investigation, the integrity of the process, and I probably ought to just leave it right there,” Gowdy replied.
“Trust me when I tell you this, Martha — I know what it was and I have been a critic of James Comey in the past. But he made the only decision he could have made with respect to appropriating that decision away from the Department of Justice and making the decision himself.”
“I only take away from that that you are suggesting that there were more entanglements between the Clintons and perhaps the Justice Department than everyone understands,” McCallum guessed.
“You’re very perceptive,” Gowdy confirmed.
Gowdy is overly kind to Comey in his interview about his reasoning. I’ve puzzled through this and I still can’t understand why Comey did not move to indict Clinton or resign in protest (this is why I don’t believe his whole “Mr. Ethics” schtick) and I can’t imagine how his statement worked better than dumping the investigation on Loretta Lynch and then leaking like a sieve, which is how he’s been operating for the past seven months.
