Rep. Trey Gowdy is known for refusing to hold back when perusing the facts.
There is nothing that any corrupt politician is afraid of more than being grilled by him.
And now a deep state Obama holdover is in his sights.
Rep. Gowdy plans to grill Obama’s former FBI Director James Comey about the decisions he made during the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
He is concerned specifically with the fact Comey chose not to charge Hillary months before the investigation ended.
As reported by the Washington Examiner:
“Rep. Trey Gowdy plans to grill former FBI Director James Comey about his decision-making as part of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s decision to re-examine the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
“Have to, won’t we?” the South Carolina Republican told the Washington Examiner when asked about interviewing Comey.
Gowdy chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which has opened a joint investigation with the Judiciary Committee in order to review the Justice Department’s handling of the politically charged investigation. Gowdy is particularly concerned that “the decision to charge or not charge [Clinton] was made before all the witnesses were interviewed,” but he emphasized that the investigation topics are structured in a nonpartisan way.
“Of the six things we listed with specificity, three of them are things Democrats gave a big damn about last fall,” said Gowdy. “So, the question is, do they still? And three of them are things that Republicans cared about a lot last year, and the question is, do they still?”
The committees announced the investigation Tuesday morning, with an emphasis on Comey and why the FBI decided what information to reveal and when. Questions include whether the FBI made the right decision to say in public that Clinton’s team was “extremely careless” in its handling of classified information, which Democratic critics protested was a breach of DOJ protocol. But the committee will also ask about the parallel refusal to confirm during the campaign that some of President Trump’s campaign associates faced investigations over their apparent ties to Russia.”
Former FBI Director James Comey has faced heavy criticism following these revelations.
The choice not to prosecute Hillary Clinton was infuriating to millions of Americans.
And with information coming out that Comey didn’t look too deeply into the matter before making the decision; that anger has reignited.
Trey Gowdy is expected to use the same approach that he has used during his famous Congressional questionings, and it may just break Comey.
Comey is already under immense pressure, and stress.
As we reported last week, a lawyer in New York has challenged Comey’s license to practice law, citing his behavior during the Clinton email investigation.
Regardless how things turn out for Comey legally, his reputation will forever be tarnished due to his conduct.
Do you think James Comey should be prosecuted for not checking all of the evidence during the Clinton email scandal?
