Trey Gowdy is flexing his political muscles as he is locked in combat with the Deep State.
Leakers in the Department of Justice are targeting the investigators who are pushing for the truth about the sabotage campaign against the President.
But Gowdy just sent the Deep State rats heading for the hills when he dropped the hammer on the leakers.
Leakers deeply embedded in the government are targeting House Intelligence Committee staffer Kash Patel.
Patel had traveled to London and the Deep State leaks portrayed him as a free lancer on a fishing expedition designed to harm the reputation of the DOJ and its top officials.
Gowdy took offense and came out swinging.
Fox News reports:
“I would have a lot more respect for DOJ or House committee Democrats if they would take out their frustrations on members of Congress, and leave staffers alone,” South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, told Fox News on Monday. “The members make the final decision and are responsible for them, not staffers.”
Not surprisingly, Deep State leakers inside the DOJ were feeding the New York Times fake news.
Fox News reports:
“Nunes and Gowdy were reacting to a weekend New York Times report that cited anonymous sources in detailing growing tension between the parties, amid a contentious request for records involving an individual and intelligence reporting that may have been used for the Russia case, as well as in obtaining surveillance warrants.
Citing a former federal law enforcement official, The New York Times reported that Rosenstein, who oversees the Russia probe, felt “misled” by Nunes’ staff over House Intelligence Committee investigator Kash Patel’s travel to London last year.
The newspaper, citing the same official, reported Rosenstein wanted to know if Patel was attempting to interview former British spy Christopher Steele, the author behind the salacious anti-Trump dossier…
…The story that Kash flew to London to meet with Christopher Steele is false, no matter how many times it’s reported,” House Intelligence Committee staff director Damon Nelson said.
Nelson said he asked Patel and another staffer to try to make contact with Steele’s lawyer as part of an effort to obtain an address to send Steele an invitation to testify to the committee.”
The DOJ and Deep State leak campaign against Nunes and his work is all about covering up the misdeeds and wrongdoings of the FBI during the 2016 election.
This has nothing to do with national security or protecting sources and methods.
The FBI ran active measures against the Trump campaign and Deep State apologists within the government – such as Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein – and now they are desperate to conceal the extent of this scandal.
