Rep. Trey Gowdy has made grilling corrupt politicians into an art.
He knows exactly how to make them squirm during questioning.
And all it took was Gowdy saying one thing to make James Comey wish he was never born.
Because he is so good at grilling corrupt politicians, Rep. Gowdy was given the position of Chairman of the House Oversight Committee.
From his position, he has been given the opportunity to put some of the nation’s most corrupt in the spotlight.
This is especially true when it comes to the Department of Justice Inspector General Report, which Gowdy has been given the opportunity to review, and to question the report’s author Michael Horowitz.
During a session last week Gowdy didn’t waste any time keeping his feelings in.
He immediately began with a fiery condemnation of the former FBI Director James Comey, as well as certain FBI agents that he had led.
Gowdy pointed out the fact that Comey has personally decided which Department of Justice policies to follow, and which to ignore.
He also accused Comey of watering down his statement on findings in the Hillary Clinton email probe, specifically asking why he did not seek a special counsel to investigate.
That is a valuable point to bring up considering that Comey indirectly led towards a special counsel being brought on to investigate President Donald Trump and possible collusion between his presidential campaign and Russia.
While Trump’s alleged wrongdoing was serious enough for a special counsel, Comey felt that he could handle Hillary Clinton entirely on his own.
“Instead, he appointed himself FBI director, attorney general, special counsel, lead investigator and the general arbiter of what is good and right in the world according to him,” Gowdy said.
Everyone now knows Comey’s conclusion, which is that what Hillary Clinton did was wrong, but that he’s going to give her nothing more than a slap on the wrist, and the freedom to continue her failed presidential campaign.
Trey Gowdy didn’t stop with just having concerns about the Hillary Clinton investigation, he also brought up the fact that some FBI agents prejudged the outcome of the Russia investigation before it even began.
Gowdy is likely referring to Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who sent intensely anti-Trump text messages as he had a leading role in the Russia collusion investigation.
He even went so far as to allude towards the fact that the FBI was going to take down Trump before he was ever elected President.
Strzok was eventually removed from the Russia investigation after his clear bias was exposed.
So the corruption at the FBI doesn’t end with former Director James Comey.
And during the hearing, it wasn’t just Trey Gowdy exposing James Comey’s corruption.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz stated that his office is investigating Comey for potentially mishandling classified information, referring to the sharing of memos detailing private conversations with President Trump.
Some of those memos detailing private conversations had to do with the now-infamous and discredited Russia dossier compiled by British spy Christopher Steele, and funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign.
His memos of conversations between himself and then-President-elect gave left-wing news outlets such as BuzzFeed the justification to release the dossier.
Do you think James Comey should be investigated?
