Trey Gowdy was on Fox News last night and said, on the Clintons, “entanglements” with the Dept. of Justice run much deeper than the average viewer knows. A little crytpic, he told Martha McCallum that “history will be much kinder to Jim Comey than the July press conference than the Dems. were”.
“I think he had access to information that, because he is a stand-up guy he’s not gonna disseminate classified information (though God knows everybody else is)…so all your viewers see is this meeting on the tarmac,” he explained.
“Jim Comey had access to additional information that I am convinced left him with no other choice but to make the decision he made in July,” Gowdy said.
Host McCallum then asked if Gowdy was implying if Comey was pressured into clearing Hillary Clinton of wrongdoing.
“No…he wanted to safeguard the integrity of the investigation, the integrity of the process, and I probably ought to just leave it right there,” Gowdy replied.
“Trust me when I tell you this, Martha — I know what it was and I have been a critic of James Comey in the past. But he made the only decision he could have made with respect to appropriating that decision away from the Department of Justice and making the decision himself.”
“I only take away from that that you are suggesting that there were more entanglements between the Clintons and perhaps the Justice Department than everyone understands,” McCallum guessed.
“You’re very perceptive,” Gowdy confirmed.
I hate that Gowdy doesn’t plan to run again… he’s a force of nature that’s much needed on the hill these days.
