Trey Gowdy: House Intel Committee Is Investigating Five FBI Officials (VIDEO)
On Friday the House Intelligence Committee released their explosive de-classified FISA memo on DOJ and FBI deceit to the courts.
The Comey FBi used fraudulent documents produced for the DNC as evidence to spy on Donald Trump and his campaign.
On Sunday morning Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), a former prosecutor who viewed the actual FISA requests, told Face the Nation the House Intelligence Committee is only investigating five top FBI officials.
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.
