Trey Gowdy commented on the alleged connections between the Trump administration and Russia. He urged the public to “keep an open mind” about sensationalistic media reports that think that there is proof of Trump colluding with Russia.
He also commented on the House and how bad they are at investigations. “The House is not equipped to investigate allegations of crime. Congress does have a role to play in this investigation, but we don’t investigate a crime because we’re not very good at it,” said Gowdy.
He brought up an even bigger issue. The illegal press leaks coming from the intelligence community.
“The leaks are super-important, but folks in the media might re-calibrate the importance of these issues. The leaks are both illegal and deleterious to our national security, so I’m really interested in how this got out,” said Gowdy.
Then he moved onto the possibility of Obama wiretapping Trump and whether Comey knew about it. He had a brutal warning for Comey. “I have an interesting and rich history with Director Comey. He has an incredibly hard job. I’m probably biased toward the FBI, based on my background,” started Gowdy.
“He’s not infallible. He’s a witness like every other witness: He’s going to be examined, he’s going to be cross-examined. He’s going to be tested, he’s going to be probed. And ultimately, you and your viewers will be able to determine whether or not he is credible and believable,” said Gowdy. Check out the interview below.
