Trey Gowdy, for some reason, is abandoning his robotic defense of the coup perpetrators and insistence that Mueller must “finish his work,” to a degree. Now a more…
Trey Gowdy seems to have suddenly woken up to the reality that there’s a lot of corruption at the FBI and DOJ, both of whom he has vigorously and reflexively defended in the past. He also now is admitting that perhaps Robert Mueller is not a taller, freakish, male version of Mother Theresa, at least to the extent that he can, while guarding against looking like a total hypocrite.
Asked if he agrees with President Trump that the IG report exonerates him, Gowdy said, “Well, it certainly helps him,” noting the prejudice with which Strzok and Page approached both the Clinton exoneration and Trump coup attempt.
Gowdy recites a list of the many conflicted partisans who have been attacking President Trump, voices that until recently have been out of his earshot, recognizing that the pervasive bias on the part of the coup participants can’t help but strengthen President Trump’s arguments.
Gowdy takes a shot at the bobble-head hack, Adam Schiff, who likewise sits on the Intelligence Committee, calling him the “only person in the universe who claims to have evidence of collusion” and that, “unlike any other secret he’s ever had, he’s actually kept this one. He’s never told anyone what evidence he has. So there’s no evidence of collusion.”
As for obstruction of justice, Gowdy says, “Good luck having your star witness being James Comey in any prosecution, from shoplifting to obstruction of justice.” He explains to him the Russia probe is exactly that, and that he hopes Mueller writes a report about that. Of course, he’s not investigating that aspect of his open-ended witch hunt any longer, if he ever was, so it’s pretty much an admission by Gowdy that it should be ended.
Gowdy names specific areas he expects IG Horowitz to be questioned on when he testifies before Congress on Tuesday in a hearing in which he is a co-chair. One is the claims by Comey and others that the Hillary Clinton email decision was based upon her mishandled emails not being exposed to foreign actors, which the IG reinforces what we all already understood, that that is a falsehood.
The second consideration Gowdy wants clarification on is the condition of intent which was inappropriately added as a condition for not charging her, with the obvious bias and prejudging of the case exposing intent determinations as having been made without interviewing the suspect.
He says a lot of members will ask about the bias, of the double standard and the same team that let her off the hook being the one persecuting the President, which continues with other individuals through the Mueller inquisition. He also expects questions on the “coziness” between the FBI and the media.
He disagrees with the face-saving claims of both dirty cop FBI Director Christopher Wray and his cover man IG that there is no evidence that the bias impacted the outcome of any investigation. Of course it did, it was just never supposed to become public and they’re attempting to minimize the negative impact to the agency. Gowdy says it’s not his job to prove the bias impacted the investigation, rather that it is Christopher Wray’s job to prove it didn’t.
Gowdy, for some reason, feels compelled to defend Mueller, when asked if it is time to wrap this witch hunt up, saying, “I would encourage Bob Mueller, keep doing exactly what Rod Rosenstein hired you to do,” wagging his finger as he declares, “Bob Mueller did not volunteer. We’re here because Rod Rosenstein decided we need a special counsel. Do the very best you can with the evidence and the witnesses you have but understand that this is being used by political enemies to hurt Donald Trump.”
He then reveals a meeting that took place Friday evening, in which he, Speaker Ryan, Devin Nunes and Bob Goodlatte met with numerous FBI and DOJ officials, in which Ryan “made it very clear, there is going to be action on the floor of the House this week, if the FBI and DOJ do not comply with our subpoena requests.”
He says the new guys, Rosenstein and Wray, can either be part of the cover up crew or the clean up crew and guarantees that impeachment remains a tool that is available to Congress. Gowdy chooses his words carefully, saying, “I have never seen Paul Ryan as animated as I saw him Friday night. He is sick and tired of the delay and he communicated that point very effectively.”
