Democrats are piling on.
The left has turned all their guns on House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes after he saw evidence Trump and his team were picked up in surveillance.
But all that stopped when Trey Gowdy left them speechless.
The media was furious when Chairman Nunes said he met with a source on White House grounds who showed him intelligence reports which indicated the Obama administration may have illegally disseminated classified intelligence reports that contained Trump transition officials’ identities.
Democrats and the anti-Trump press were trying to make the source of Nunes information the story as opposed to the substance.
Unlike the illegal leaks to the press which were designed to hurt the Trump administration, Nunes was cleared to see the information and his source was legally able to share it.
The left also tried to make hay out of the fact Nunes met with his source on White House grounds.
But Nunes only met on the grounds because it was the only secure location he could review the reports.
Nancy Pelosi led the charge against Nunes by whining that he should recuse himself from the Russian investigation.
She tweeted out a statement demanding he step aside as Chairman of the Intelligence Committee.

Trey Gowdy was asked about this and utterly destroyed Pelosi’s criticism.
He told The Weekly Standard:
“Some of his fellow committee Republicans were more colorful in their rejection of calls for his recusal.
“Jesus would not be a satisfactory chairperson to some of my Democratic colleagues,” South Carolina representative Trey Gowdy told TWS. “They would complain about his hair.”
“I did this for 20 years. I’ve never met a defense attorney who didn’t complain about the prosecutor, usually when they don’t have good facts,” Gowdy continued. “This is a factual investigation.”
The House Intelligence Committee’s investigation will press on despite the Democrats’ schemes to politicize the inquiry and pre-emptively taint any report that produces conclusions they don’t like.
That’s why Gowdy – and other Republicans – have stood by Chairman Nunes.
