Rep. Trey Gowdy recently announced he is not running for re-election to Congress.
Following the announcement, Gowdy has been dropping bombshell after bombshell relating to the anti-Trump Russia investigation.
And he just dropped his biggest bomb yet, naming who’s really behind the Russia investigation.
While speaking with Fox News host Martha MacCallum, Gowdy was asked if he thinks that special counsel Robert Mueller has gone beyond the initial focus of the investigation.
Gowdy stated that he feels the investigation has already wandered away from its original intention.
And in answering the question, Gowdy stated he doesn’t blame Robert Mueller for the broad investigation, but rather blames Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Gowdy claims that Rosenstein drafted the jurisdiction and charter that empowered Mueller.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy blames Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for the broad purview of the Russia investigation, he revealed in a Fox News interview on Tuesday.
Fox News host Martha MacCallum noted that special counsels often go beyond their initial focus and asked Gowdy if he had fears of that happening with Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
“You have seen special councils in the past leave their purview and the investigation goes on for a long time, the next thing you know, you are investigating a Monica Lewinsky case when the president didn’t even know her when the special counsel began his work. You don’t have any fear of that here?” MacCallum asked.
Gowdy said that the Mueller investigation has already wandered away from its original intention, but he doesn’t blame Mueller — rather, he blames the person who set the purview for the case.
“Do I have fear that jurisdiction may wander a bit? I think it already has,” he responded. “It has already wandered a little bit. But I would not blame Bob Mueller. I would blame whoever drafted the jurisdiction and the charter that empowered him. If you look at it, it says matters that may arise from the investigation. What the heck heck does that mean? Is that a bank robbery in Topeka, Kansas?”
MacCallum questioned if Rosenstein was the one who wrote that language, and Gowdy confirmed that detail.
“And that language came from Rod Rosenstein?” she asked.
“Yes ma’am,” Gowdy said bluntly.”
Anyone with a brain already understood that the Russia investigation has steered far away from the direction it was meant to go, and with the anti-Trump bent of the investigation that isn’t surprising.
The texts between the two FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page prove that the investigators involved in the investigation are far from unbiased.
And thanks to the candid statements from Trey Gowdy, we now know that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is just another part of the anti-Trump Russia conspiracy theory.
Do you think President Trump should fire both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Special Counsel Robert Mueller?
