Trey Gowdy weighed in on the FISA abuse report by Inspector General Michael Horowitz saying that Jim Comey shouldn’t write any more ethics books.
The former Oversight Committee Chairman took it to Comey.
He called Comey out on thinking he’s been exonerated in the IG Report:
“I don’t know what report Comey read. This is the third IG report that has found his conduct to be substandard … if he wants to take a victory lap because he’s not indicted, more power to him. Don’t write any more books on ethics… Don’t tell me what the ethical standard is if you think this report vindicates you.”
Comey is in deep trouble as Gowdy says in his conversation with Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum:
“I mean, keep in mind, a counterintelligence investigation is because you think Carter Page is working on behalf of Russia. The reality is Carter Page, who is working on behalf of the United States of America and you changed it from … he is a CIA source to he’s not a source, which is a manifestly unfair thing to do to Carter Page. So, when Horowitz says there was no bias in the inception … There was a lot of bias from every point thereafter, including an FBI lawyer manufacturing evidence to get a surveillance warrant against an American citizen.”
“If you’re changing e-mails, manufacturing, altering evidence…which is a crime…because you want to get it … Not only do you not have any business being an FBI agent or law enforcement, you probably ought to be wearing an orange jumpsuit.”
