If you haven’t heard Mark Levin’s take on Trey Gowdy’s latest claims, the audio below is a must! No one does a better job of setting the record straight than THE GREAT ONE! Levin rips Gowdy up and down during his show last night…it’s a classic!
See the report from The Federalist below where it’s revealed that Gowdy NEVER SAW subpoenaed records before exonerating FBI spy use.
LevinTV host Mark Levin called out Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., on the radio Wednesday over the lawmaker’s claims that the FBI did the right thing by planting a spy in the Trump campaign.
As he played clips of Gowdy’s multiple television appearances on the subject, Levin (the former chief of staff to Attorney General Ed Meese) dissected the congressman’s Spygate apologetics point by point.
“The Left has what it wants” thanks to Gowdy, Levin concluded, “Another putative Republican, retiring so he’s free to ‘speak his mind,’ such as it is.”
THE FEDERALIST reports:
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) recently suggested the FBI did nothing wrong when it used at least one government informant to secretly collect information on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Public reports indicate, however, that Gowdy never even reviewed the relevant documents on the matter subpoenaed by Congress. In fact, a spokeswoman for Gowdy told The Federalist that the congressman doesn’t even know what documents and records were subpoenaed by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI).
The briefing Gowdy and other lawmakers attended was scheduled at the behest of the White House after the Department of Justice (DOJ) obstructed the subpoena. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein likened HPSCI’s constitutionally obligated congressional oversight of DOJ to “extortion.”
Although Gowdy intimated that the information he received in a briefing last week made clear the FBI did nothing wrong, numerous reports from multiple news outlets indicated that the lawmakers DOJ invited to the briefing were not given access to all of the records HPSCI subpoenaed. Other comments Gowdy made during recent television interviews raise questions about how firm a grasp he has on the investigation and concerns the investigation has raised.
