Millions of Americans were livid a few months ago when FBI Director James Comey announced that Hillary Clinton will not be charged for her use of a personal email server during her time as Secretary of State. Now, Republican Representative Trey Gowdy is taking a major stand against Comey, who is still covering up for Clinton.
“What would she have had to do to warrant your recommendation for prosecution?” Gowdy asked, according to American News.
Comey replied by saying that he would need proof of Clinton’s intent in order to move forward with prosecuting her.
“But the way to prove that is whether or not someone took steps to conceal or destroy what they’ve done.” Gowdy argued. “That is the best evidence you have that they knew it was wrong, that they lied about it.”
And Gowdy didn’t stop there.
“You have to prove circumstantial evidence such as whether or not the person intended to set up an e-mail system outside the State Department,” Gowdy continued. “I think you would agree with this, Director—false exculpatory statements are gold in a courtroom. I would rather have a false exculpatory statement than a confession. I would rather have someone lie about something and it be provable that that is a lie, such as that I neither sent nor received classified information. Such as that I turned over all my work related e-mails. All of that to me goes to the issue of intent.”
