(National Sentinel) Congress: Newly-minted chairman of the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., hit back at Democrats on Capitol Hill who continue to suggest, despite no evidence, that President Donald J. Trump did something nefarious with the Russians.
“There are members of both the House and the Senate who [say] ‘I’ve seen evidence that is more than circumstantial, but not direct,'” Gowdy told Fox News‘ Tucker Carlson. “There is no way it can be more than circumstantial but not direct.”
He called them “reckless, baseless allegations.”
Gowdy, who also serves on the House intelligence committee investigating possible connections between Russian officials and members of the Trump campaign, said a member of that committee “said this week that he has seen evidence [but] he can’t tell us what it is [and] it’s not beyond a reasonable doubt.
“There’s no way to defend yourself against those kinds of baseless, reckless accusations,” he added.
He was very likely referring to the Intelligence Committee’s out-of-control ranking member, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who told ABC‘s “This Week” that “I think there is evidence” of Trump colluding with Moscow.
“I can’t go into the particulars of our closed investigation,” Schiff said, “but I also think there is evidence of obstruction [of justice]. But in both cases, I would say, whether there is some evidence doesn’t mean there is proof beyond a reasonable doubt.”
The obstruction case Democrats think they have has been debunked time and again by real constitutional experts. And as for the never-ending Russia probe, Democrats need it to continue so they can keep the support of their own unhinged base, whom they have all but promised Trump’s impeachment over these alleged ‘crimes.’
Gowdy also said that the “hyper-focus” so-called ‘collusion,’ which is just a very small portion of the House’s Russia investigation, can be blamed squarely on the far-Left media establishment.
He also said the House is looking at these things: Active Russian interference (a subset of that is the collusion angle); the U.S. response (which would have been the Obama administration’s responsibility); and the leaks and unmasking of Americans caught up in foreign surveillance.
