Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is one of the few in Congress willing to tell it like it is.
He has refused to mince words when it comes to the recently released Nunes memo.
And he just took a wrecking ball to the Democrats when they criticized the four-page memo.
While speaking on Face The Nation, Rep. Gowdy went after Rep. Adam Schiff (D-MA), dismantling his concerns with the FISA memo.
Gowdy stated he “get[s] that Adam Schiff and others are worried about what’s not in my memo, I wish that they were equally concerned about what’s not in the FISA application.”
Gowdy is referring to the FISA application to spy on key members of the Trump campaign.
The application sourced the controversial Steele dossier, but it is unclear whether it mentioned the fact that the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign paid for the dossier.
It also failed to mention how ex-British spy Christopher Steele had a strong bias against the President, and wanted to do everything he could to make sure Trump wasn’t elected.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina dismissed Democrats’ criticisms of the recently released Republican memo detailing surveillance abuse within the FBI and Department of Justice, during an interview Sunday on “Face The Nation.”
“I get that Adam Schiff and others are worried about what’s not in my memo,” Gowdy said on “Face The Nation.” “I wish that they were equally concerned about what’s not in the FISA application”
Gowdy, who recently announced he will forego another term in favor of entering the private sector, downplayed the concerns of the FBI and Democratic lawmakers; namely that the memo – compiled by House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes – might compromise intelligence methods and sources.
“But it’s both the Steele dossier, and who paid for it, and whether or not it was vetted, but it’s also what was not in it. This is an application to a court. So, I get that Adam Schiff and others are worried about what’s not in my memo,” Gowdy said.
“I wish that they were equally concerned about what’s not in the FISA application, which is a lot of really important information about the source, and its sub-sources, and the fact that he was hired by the DNC and the Clinton campaign, and the fact that he was biased against President Trump. That is all information that the– that the finder of fact is entitled to.”
The FBI released a statement prior to the memo’s Friday release, which stated the agency had “grave concerns” about its contents.”
The point brought up by Gowdy is very powerful and is something the Democrats clearly don’t want to talk about.
They are hoping everyone forgets about the anti-Trump Steele dossier, and how it influenced the Justice Department in their decision to spy on Trump campaign officials.
Do you think the Nunes memo will bring down the Democrats?
