Trey Gowdy: FBI “Did What Americans Would Want Them to Do” By Spying on Opposition Party in 2016 (VIDEO)
This guy can’t leave Congress soon enough.
Trey Gowdy defended the FBI on Tuesday for spying on the opposition party during the 2016 election. The FBI infiltrated the Trump campaign and fed information back to headquarters in 2016 and beyond.
This is likely the largest political scandal in US history.
FOX Insider reported:
“The FBI is doing what he told them to do,” he said in regard to an alleged “spy” being placed in his campaign by the bureau.
“I am even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got, and that it has nothing to do with Donald Trump,” Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican, said.
“It was Trump himself who said, ‘I didn’t collude with Russia but if anyone did, I want the FBI to find that out,'” Gowdy said.
Democrat leaders heaped praise on Gowdy after his statements.
Democratic Sen. Chris Coons: "I'm grateful" that GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy came forward to defend the FBI against "baseless allegations by President Trump" https://t.co/agu4Utayyj pic.twitter.com/BtJzXcX9ly
