Hillary Clinton thought she was finally out of the woods with the FBI investigation into her various activities. That’s why it came as bad news to her when South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, who could possibly be given the job of FBI director, let Clinton know that she’s not safe quite yet.
While appearing on Fox News on Tuesday night, Gowdy said that the Clintons’ “entanglements” with the Department of Justice run much deeper than the average viewer may know. He then cryptically told host Martha MacCallum that he believes “history will be much kinder to Jim Comey in that July press conference than the Democrats were.”
“I think he had access to information that, because he is a stand-up guy he’s not gonna disseminate classified information (though God knows everybody else is)…so all your viewers see is this meeting on the tarmac,” he explained, according to The Daily Caller. “Jim Comey had access to additional information that I am convinced left him with no other choice but to make the decision he made in July.”
MacCallum responded by asking if Gowdy was implying that Comey was pressured into clearing Clinton of all wrongdoing.
“No…he wanted to safeguard the integrity of the investigation, the integrity of the process, and I probably ought to just leave it right there,” Gowdy replied. “Trust me when I tell you this, Martha — I know what it was and I have been a critic of James Comey in the past. But he made the only decision he could have made with respect to appropriating that decision away from the Department of Justice and making the decision himself.”
“I only take away from that that you are suggesting that there were more entanglements between the Clintons and perhaps the Justice Department than everyone understands,” MacCallum guessed.
“You’re very perceptive,” Gowdy concluded.
