Trey Gowdy spent the last two years knee-deep in the Russia investigations.
The South Carolina Republican knows what Robert Mueller is digging in to.
And in one interview, he just gave Donald Trump this big piece of very bad news.
Gowdy retired from Congress to join the high-powered South Carolina law firm of Nelson, Mullins, Riley and Scarborough.
He’s also sworn off any return to politics.
Gowdy told the National Law Journal that the Democrats hyper-partisan conduct pushed him to walk away from representing the people of South Carolina’s Fourth Congressional District after just four terms.
“The justice system is different from the political system,” Gowdy told the National Law Journal. “There’s rules, there’s process and a desired outcome. In politics the desire is simply to win. I did not want to be a part of that.”
Later on in the interview, Gowdy cited the left’s zeal to use the Russia investigation to impeach Donald Trump as one example of partisan overreach ruining the American’s people’s faith in Congress.
But Gowdy also stunned Trump supporters by validating the existence of the Mueller investigation.
“You’ll never hear me refer to [the] Russia [investigation] as a hoax or a witch hunt. I’ve always said Mueller should be given the time, independence and resources to complete the job he was assigned,” Gowdy began. He claimed that “it is in our country’s best interest for Mueller to complete the investigation as soon as possible.”
Trump supporters also questioned why Gowdy took at face value the statements from Barack Obama’s Deep State that Russia “meddled” in the election.
In addition, Gowdy helped lead the investigation that discovered the FBI used the fake news Christopher Steele dossier to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
If anyone would know the collusion investigation was a hoax based on lies it should be Trey Gowdy.
“It’s been hopelessly politicized,” Gowdy continued. “Why is it not enough that we identify a hostile foreign adversary who tried to influence our election?”
Robert Mueller indicted a Russian internet marketing company for spending a little over one million dollars on Facebook ads.
That was a drop in the bucket in an ocean of over two billion dollars spent by the campaigns, party committees, and outside groups in 2016.
And there is still no evidence the Russians were behind the hacks of the Democrat National Committee and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
The evidence backing up the claims Russia “interfered” in the election is paper thin at best.
But then Gowdy closed his comment by expressing faith in Mueller.
“I want [Mueller] to do a job in which everyone can have confidence. I know he’s smart enough to realize how incredibly divisive this is,” Gowdy concluded. “Leave him alone and let him do his job. And to him I would say: Do it as quickly as you can and then let us know what you’ve found.”
This is not the first time Gowdy spoke up in defense of the FBI or Robert Mueller.
As a former federal prosecutor Gowdy wants to believe in law enforcement institutions.
But giving credence to an investigation Gowdy knows is based on nonsense only helps Mueller and the Democrats in the upcoming PR campaign to claim Mueller’s upcoming report justifies impeaching President Trump.
