(National Sentinel) Unbelievable: South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy on Wednesday said during an interview with Fox News‘ Martha McCallum that former top White House political adviser Steve Bannon has a “credibility problem.”
As such, Gowdy warned special counsel Robert Mueller to avoid using his past criticisms of President Donald J. Trump, his son Donald Jr., and other members of the Trump campaign to build a case against them regarding alleged Russian collusion.
Gowdy was basing his statements on testimony Bannon, former head of Breitbart News, gave to the House Intelligence Committee, on which Gowdy sits, earlier this week.
“I think the only thing dangerous for President Trump or his campaign is credible evidence,” Gowdy said.
“This is the same witness that said there was a zero percent chance that the Russian lawyer wasn’t walked up to Trump, and when he was asked what that evidence was, he came up with nothing,” he added.
“This is the same witness that said that members of the president’s family committed acts of treason,” Gowdy noted further.
“So he’s got a credibility issue. If they’re hinging the entire case on Steve Bannon‘s credibility, good luck to the prosecution.”
Bannon testified for some 10 hours on Tuesday, refusing to answer many of the panel’s questions, much to their chagrin.
At one point, according to one report, Gowdy himself grilled Bannon over why he would say things about the Trump campaign and campaign team to Michael Wolff, author of the highly controversial new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” but not answer lawmakers’ questions.
