Trey Gowdy pulled back the curtain this week and dropped a bomb on the Deep State actors who launched the Russia witch hunt against President Donald Trump.
The former South Carolina Republican lawmaker said he thought Trump was justified in his anger toward the old guard at the FBI.
Gowdy also said Trump will more than likely clean house at the FBI and work towards making sure corrupt Obama holdovers are held responsible for what they did.
During an interview with Fox News host Martha MacCallum, Gowdy said the actions taken by high-ranking FBI officials were enough to raise the suspicion that they were “out to get” the president.
MacCallum asked Gowdy about Trump’s post-acquittal speech late last week, where he said, “Had I not fired James Comey, who was a disaster, by the way, it’s possible I wouldn’t even be standing here right now.”
MacCallum introduced Gowdy then, noting, “Very strong words. But when you look at the Mueller report and the FISA process, you can understand where it’s coming from.”
“Yeah, Peter Strzok, the lead case agent on this Russia probe, was talking about impeaching Donald Trump before Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler were,” Gowdy agreed. “Let that sink in. The lead agent for the FBI mentioned impeaching Trump before Schiff and Nadler did.”
Gowdy went on to outline the FBI’s behavior, arguing that the “defensive briefing” was really just an interview because they already thought Trump was guilty of some impropriety.
“You have James Comey who thinks impeachment is too good for him. You have John Brennan that thinks he should be in the dustpan of history. You have Andy McCabe, who after Comey was fired, launched another investigation into Trump,” Gowdy laid out all the characters. “Martha, if I were Donald Trump, I would think the FBI was out to get me, too.”
In large part, Gowdy was referring to the FISA spy report, which found that FBI officials had falsified documents for the FISA court so they had a better chance of securing warrants to spy on members of the Trump campaign, such as aide Carter Page.
The long-awaited report from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz
Horowitz found “significant inaccuracies” in the FBI’s FISA applications, including how investigators withheld exculpatory information regarding Page and derogatory information about the Steele dossier.
And Obama’s FBI obtained FISA warrants to spy on members of the Trump campaign by using the discredited dossier, which was bought and paid for by Democrats and Hillary Clinton.
This is not the end of the investigation into the Russia probe.
Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham — the prosecutor leading the investigation into the overall Russia investigation — just shifted their investigation into a criminal inquiry.
This means that Barr and Durham now have the power to subpoena for witness testimony and documents, to convene a grand jury, and file criminal charges.
Barr and Durham have also flipped a top Comey-Obama ally, who is now working with the DOJ and assisting in the probe.
