Gowdy Furious At CNN – Aired Classified Leaks He Promised Wouldn’t Happen

gowdy burnett leaks

CNN’s Erin Burnett might wish she hadn’t asked the question that she did or invited Congressman Trey Gowdy onto her program at all. He’s upset and has every right to be, over the leaking of classified information that he promised those testifying would remain confidential, as classified information is intended to remain.

The interview starts off with the inopportune words of one who puts a gotcha story above all else, including national security or what’s right or wrong, “What did you find out?,” asked of a Congressman who was hearing classified testimony. What she didn’t know at the time but was about to learn is that she had just firmly planted both of her muck-encrusted feet into her mouth and it was going to be a while before she was able to work them free.

Gowdy said, with the anger discernible in his voice, “About 8 hours ago Adam Schiff (D-CA) and I looked Dan Coats [DNI] in the eyes and we assured him that there would be no selective leaking of his testimony to us. And I’ll be damned if eight hours later, there aren’t three different leaks with what he told us. So if anyone is questioning why Congressional investigations aren’t taken seriously and are viewed as political exercises, you need look no further than the fact that we looked one of our intelligence officials in the eyes and promised him there would be no selective leaking and here I am being asked about it not even eight hours later.”

Burnett, whose CNN network is one of the chief offenders broadcasting the secrets and with at least three people who took credit earlier for obtaining the classified information they leaked has the gall to ask, “So Congressman, who leaked it? Was it Coats, was it Schiff? Was there anyone else in the room than the three of you?”

He says, “Oh no, there were eight people in the room. I can tell you who it was not. It was not me and I do not believe it was Adam Schiff. He’s a former federal prosecutor who knows that leaks undercut the efficacy and integrity of investigations. I can’t tell you who it is but I can tell you this. You’re going to have a chilling effect on other witnesses who want to share classified, sensitive information when it makes its way to the headlines before the transcript’s even dry.

Odds are he’s got a good idea who the leaker is but can’t say. Unlike some folks, Gowdy knows how and when to keep his mouth shut.

  1. Get rid of the trash.

  2. Along with everything else, I’m not sure what additional evidence is necessary to prove that NOTHING escapes the purview of one of those special “committees” that effectively runs EVERYTHING, and will stop at NOTHING to ensure that they remain so empowered. People shouldn’t be “shocked” or “amazed” by any of this because these “creatures” have held sway at least since JFK’s “demise” and have had all these years to solidify their positions.

  3. It’s time to set laws or protocols in place for the media that disallow sensitive leaked information to be posted, aired or otherwise transferred to the general population before being given the “go ahead” from the Whitehouse. As it stands, the media will take information and run with it no matter who or what it hurts. Not one leaked bit of information should be aired if the “sender” is anonymous!

    Ok so much for the crotch. Now I do believe trey is really PO ed ……and I do believe he has the power to do something about it. (hope he will). So three people have taken credit for it……Well that is three that should be given the chance to tell who leaked it or visit the inside of the DC jail (not a nice place) for as long as it takes. Some how CNN big wigs should be charged, since they had to ok this. I do believe …cnn….has a license to operate from the….FCC…..maybe they should look again at that license and take action? Time that this type of person learns that their actions may have bad results for them. get them trey.

  5. I checked the picture but could not find anything wrong. After reading Becky’s comment, I went back to look a second time and still couldn’t find anything out of order. Although, I usually don’t focus on crotches.

    • that’s got to be why I never noticed either, especially men’s crotches lol. there’s a splash of red and blue, a very small splash but it’s nothing that is worth getting upset about, it’s nothing as you know too – I’ll fix it but there are bigger fish to fry. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Mare.

  6. I enter Rick Wells site fairly often and usually enjoy his take on the news, but I am very angry at the treatment of George Washington in the above picture. Some one on his staff or otherwise has a warped sense of humor…..Look at the picture for a few minutes and tell me what is wrong…….ok, I will tell you. The illustration of the ‘lil pink thing’ in his pants front in just the right place, makes me wonder how seriously they take what they do. Shame on you and shame on you for allowing it….At a time when our country needs more patriotism, you mock our history……..or not? Can we get that fixed?
    Thank you,

    • I appreciate your telling me about it, I did that artwork myself and never noticed it, have no idea how it got there but I’ll fix it. Back off on the shame on you stuff, if you do come to my site as you say you should at least understand that that was not an intentional act. it’s a spot of color as far as I can tell, nothing more although oddly positioned, there’s no getting around that. Don’t assume the worst, you were dead wrong in this case. Again, thank you for pointing it out.
      I’ve since checked the originals on google and it’s in the original, including in images from art galleries – I’m not the pervert you gave me credit for being – check it out for yourself – search George Washington crossing the Delaware.
