(NationalSentinel) In an appearance Monday night on Fox News‘ “Hannity,” former U.S. attorney and GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy (S.C.) had some advice for his former Republican colleagues in the House: Stop promising that there is “more coming” in regards to the ongoing Justice Department probe into the origins of Spygate.
Why? Because Americans interested in seeing justice done already know enough to understand “something isn’t right” when it comes to the actions and behavior of the Obama administration.
Gowdy was responding to former GOP colleague Rep. Peter King (N.Y.), who predicted over the weekend during a radio interview that “more” would be coming out regarding dual probes being conducted by Attorney General William Barr and U.S. attorney John Durham into how the FBI’s investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign began.
During a weekend appearance on John Catsimatidis’ New York AM 970 radio show, “The Cats Roundtable,” King said he believes “serious” and “severe abuses” by the FBI and CIA during the 2016 presidential run are “going to come out” following declassification of top-secret documents by President Donald Trump that are related to former Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
He added that he’s “hopeful and confident” AG Barr [and Durham] will uncover the “bias” by the two agencies against then-candidate Donald Trump.
Asked to comment on Robert Mueller’s upcoming public testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Gowdy said the former special counsel isn’t going to “deviate from the four corners” of his already-released report proving that POTUS Donald Trump did not “collude” with Russia and that there wasn’t enough evidence to indicate “obstruction of justice.”
As such, no one is really going to learn anything new, making the hearing pointless — except that Democrats will turn it into “a freak show” with blatantly inflammatory questions that have no meaning and will reveal nothing.
“I love Peter King,” Gowdy said, “but Republicans have got to get better at not always promising what’s getting ready to come but look at what already exists.
He added, in an animated manner:
Look at what [DoJ Inspector General Michael] Horowitz has already found. Strzok and Page with a historic level of bias. You have a dossier that was used in a court pleading that was not verified. You have [former British spy Christopher] Steele who was defrocked as a [FBI] source but yet continued to provide information to the world’s premier law enforcement agency, and you got a DoJ senior official, Bruce Ohr, who was in the chain of evidence from Fusion GPS to the DoJ.
We shouldn’t have to promise anything else. That oughta be enough for my fellow citizens to say, ‘You know what? Something ain’t right.’
Gowdy also said the focus won’t be on Mueller’s answers during testimony but on the questions Democrats are going to ask — because he won’t be able to answer them in a public forum. That will give their supporters the impression that Mueller has ‘the goods’ on POTUS Trump but just can’t talk about them in an open setting, though his report has already cleared the president.
It’s a good interview for a change.
