Congressman Trey Gowdy says, “I just love it when Senator Schumer gives Republicans advice on what we ought to do. Devin is doing exactly what the chairman ought to do. When you have a source who has information, you handle that information safely, securely, which is exactly what he did.”
Gowdy continues, “I wish Senator Schumer and some of the other Democrats would be more interested in the authenticity and the reliability of the underlying data and not the means by which it was acquired. Whether it’s the White House or Waffle House, what difference does it make if the information is reliable and authentic?”
“It just so happens,” he notes, “Devin had to do it this way. So we’re not going to take advice from Senator Schumer on who our chair people ought to be. He states that the Chairman hasn’t told the committee members that the information came from the White House but again states his belief that the source doesn’t matter nearly as much whether or not the underlying information is authentic and credible.”
Gowdy says, “Keep in mind, Devin has also said this has nothing to do with Russia. And for those who missed it the first time he said it again, ‘nothing to do with Russia.’ So, if we’ve gotten to the point where the chairman of the House Intelligence committee cannot go gather information related to our surveillance programs and cannot update the Commander-in-Chief on the nature of that information, we’re in a really strange place.”
He say, “I realize the Democrats don’t like the fact that President Trump won, but he did. And Devin is the chairperson of the Intelligence Committee. He has an obligation to update the Commander-in-Chief on information like this.”
Gowdy hopes the future testimony of FBI Director Comey and NSA Director Rogers are behind closed doors. He points to the futility of conducting a hearing in a setting where very little of substance can be revealed.
