Trey Gowdy has had enough.
He’s tired of the game the FBI is playing.
So Gowdy sat in front of the camera and delivered a dagger to the heart of the anti-Trump conspiracy.
The South Carolina Congressman was interviewed by Fox News Channel’s Maria Bartiromo.
He was asked to address a tweet by Donald Trump where the President blasted the FBI and Department of Justice for slow-walking the request by Congress for documents relevant to the FBI’s abuse of power during the Russia investigation.
What does the Department of Justice and FBI have to hide? Why aren’t they giving the strongly requested documents (unredacted) to the HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE? Stalling, but for what reason? Not looking good!

Gowdy came out firing.
He called the FBI and DOJ out:
“In an interview on Fox News, the South Carolina Republican said the department is “going to have to do better than a thousand pages here and there.”
Gowdy’s comments are in response to the department’s announcement Friday that it would produce 1,000 pages of materials to the House Judiciary Committee in response to a subpoena from its chairman, Rep. Bob Goodlatte…
… “I cannot help them explain a million documents to the inspector general and a fraction of that to the entity who created and funds the FBI,” Gowdy said.
“So if Congress is entitled to this information, we shouldn’t get it in thousand page increments,” he said. “The inspector general has a million pages.”
Expressing annoyance with the department, Gowdy said, “I want to be able to support the FBI and DOJ, but the world’s premiere law enforcement agency can’t seem to operate a copying machine. That’s inexplicable.”
Gowdy is a former prosecutor.
And he has tried to give the FBI the benefit of the doubt in this investigation.
But it is becoming more and more apparent that the Bureau has something to hide.
Under James Comey’s leadership, the FBI morphed into a political hit squad for Barack Obama.
The Obama administration used the FBI to weaponize the surveillance state against Trump aides and to frame Trump for the fake news collusion conspiracy.
Gowdy and Congressional Republicans are trying to dig through this muck in order to present the full picture of the Obama administration and FBI’s actions, but they are being obstructed.
