South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy was on CBS’ “Face the Nation” this morning when he revealed that there are about five FBI employees under investigation:
While the left is busy muddying the waters to make Americans doubt the importance of the memo that came out on Friday, the Republicans are busy getting to the truth. The effort to protect Hillary Clinton and destroy Trump involved intel agencies, the press and politicians so there are many layers to this investigation that we haven’t seen.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Rep. Trey Gowdy said there might be about five FBI employees whose actions have been suspect in the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and the whole bureau should not be attacked.
“I have tremendous respect for the bureau, there are 30,000 employees, let’s assume that there are five that engaged in conduct that we have questions about,” Gowdy said on CBS’ “Face The Nation” Sunday.
The FBI has been under siege by President Trump and Republicans for the investigation into Russia’s actions in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign.
Gowdy said the partisan tone of the investigation has become a major problem. He said he hopes the release of a four-page memo detailing how the FBI used a controversial dossier compiled on Trump by a political opposition research firm as evidence for a warrant to spy on a Trump campaign adviser is a “one-off.”
“I hope this is a one-off, that Congress takes this position but also hope it’s a one-off that a [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] application contains errors and product that is funded by a political opponent. I hope that is a one-off,” he said.
