Look everybody! Trey Gowdy is here! The GOP’s mop-boy for the real heavy hitters (like Devin Nunes and Chuck Grassley) has resurfaced to blast the FBI…after others had beaten him to it.

Appearing on Fox News’ ‘The Ingraham Angle’ on December 29, Rep. Gowdy (R-SC) lamented that his chairmanship of the House Oversight Committee investigation into Hillary Clinton’s criminal use of a private email server had ground to a halt because the Bureau and the Department of Justice (in the Obama and the Trump administrations) had REFUSED to turn over requested documents.

That was apparently all it took to shake Gowdy off the trail.

“An investigation is only as good as its access to documents and witnesses,” he is quoted by the Independent Journal Review (IJR) as saying.

Gowdy’s mercurial commitment to nailing Hillary Inc. to the wall aside, he still does offer up some great insight and fires off great questions.

On December 13, 2017, Gowdy was once again on Fox News, reports The Blaze, and began to publicly voice his frustration with the FBI and DOJ.

Following the revelation that FBI agents Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Bruce Ohr were political hacks looking to bring down the President (a crime of the century that has been ignored by the ‘media’!) Gowdy tells Fox host Martha MaCallum, “I’m still trying to figure out why three FBI agents are discussing politics in the Deputy Director’s office, because you’re not supposed to discuss politics on federal ground and FBI agents aren’t supposed to engage in politics for Hatch Act reasons.”

Exactly a week later, Gowdy joined forces with Republican warrior Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia in sending a letter to the DOJ demanding that Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Chief of Staff James Rybicki, and F.B.I. Counsel Lisa Page appear for questioning before Congress, reported Vanity Fair.

The former director of the FBI, James Comey, is still in Gowdy’s sights as well. Gowdy told Foxs’ MacCallum in relation to Comey’s grossly premature exoneration of Clinton:

“If you have made the decision not to charge someone in May of 2016 before you have interviewed two-dozen witnesses, before you have interviewed the target of the investigation, then you’re going to have to explain how you reached that decision not to charge.”

You do indeed. Let us hope that if Comey is ever again questioned he is not allowed to weasel out of saying what he knows like McCabe. Comey needs to be the ethical person he so often tweets about and tell THE TRUTH!

Stay on them Gowdy, every minute of every day!

Trey Gowdy Says Everything Was Done Differently in Hillary Email Investigation

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) doesn’t let anyone get away with a soft answer.

That’s why he pressed especially hard during the Hillary Clinton email probes for the truth. Gowdy laments he’s unable to get specific forms from the FBI that would allow him to conduct a proper investigation as chairman of the House Oversight Committee. He says that an investigation is “only as good as its access to documents and witnesses.”

Gowdy is attempting to explain why there has been no resolution to the Clinton probes.

“This has taken longer than it should … almost everything was done differently.” This delay by the FBI has prevented him from being able to interview people such as Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

Gowdy has a way of making simple arguments that shed light on why the Clinton probe is still a serious matter. He has a question for former FBI Director James Comey: “Was the decision not to prosecute Clinton made months before it was announced?”

“If you have made the decision not to charge someone in May of 2016 before you have interviewed two-dozen witnesses, before you have interviewed the target of the investigation, then you’re going to have to explain how you reached that decision not to charge.”

Pointed questions such as these are why no one wants to be questioned by Gowdy.

Trey Gowdy says FBI agents were ‘conspiring’ and ‘plotting’ against Trump being elected

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) reviewed his questioning of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Wednesday, adding that it appeared that three FBI officials were “conspiring or plotting” to decide the election.

Here’s what he said:
“This is a really bad fact pattern,” Gowdy said of the revelations about bias at the FBI and Justice Department.

“I hate it for Rod Rosenstein that he’s the one explaining it because he’s not [FBI official] Peter Strzok, and he’s not [Deputy FBI Director] Andy McCabe, and he’s not [former FBI Director] Jim Comey, so he’s having to do a little bit of clean up,” he explained. “But these are really bad facts if you care about an impartial, objective Department of Justice and FBI.”

“I’m still trying to figure out why three FBI agents are discussing politics in the Deputy Director’s office, because you’re not supposed to discuss politics on federal ground and FBI agents aren’t supposed to engage in politics for Hatch Act reasons,” he added.

Gowdy was referring to texts that show Strzok talking about an “insurance policy” against Trump winning the 2015 election. The text was in a trove of interactions obtained by the media and released Tuesday.

Predicts McCabe will be fired

Gowdy went on to say that he would be surprised if Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe were not fired from his position within the week.

“But the notion that three bureau agents would be conspiring or plotting on how to handle the outcome of a presidential election is the opposite of what you want in an objective, dispassionate, neutral FBI,” he explained.

Mueller in a no-win situation of his own making

Gowdy said that although he defended Mueller before, the special counsel has to explain how he hired people who were so biased against Trump. He added that Mueller was in a no-win situation because both Democrats and Republicans can accuse him of inappropriate behavior depending on what the outcome of his investigation might be.Trey Gowdy says FBI agents were ‘conspiring’ and ‘plotting’ against Trump being elected
