It’s a little weird to think that Trey Gowdy is no longer a member of Congress, huh?
He was a strong conservative who wasn’t afraid of speaking his mind.
Gowdy recently appeared on Fox News to break down everything Comey-related. He also slammed him pretty good in the process.
From Daily Caller:
Former South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy isn’t offering any apologies to former FBI Director James Comey, who’s requested apologies from his critics.
While the most recent Inspector General report did not recommend criminal prosecution, it did conclude that Comey “failed” to safeguard “sensitive information obtained during the course of his FBI employment.”
Speaking on Friday night’s “Hannity” with guest host and former Congressman Jason Chaffetz, Gowdy pointed out that there are other ways to judge someone other than criminal prosecution.
More on Comey, via The Hill:
A major headline from the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) latest inspector general report is that fired FBI Director James Comey mishandled classified information. But you’d never know it from most of the day-after media reporting on the historic findings.
The internal DOJ watchdog documented, irrefutably, that Comey leaked the contents of a classified memo to his legal team, first orally and then by providing a copy of the document. Some of the memo’s content was then leaked to a media organization by one of his lawyers.
I first reported this when sources contacted me in late July and told me the inspector general (IG) had referred Comey to the Justice Department for possible prosecution for mishandling classified information. Attorney General William Barr’s team declined to bring charges.
My reporting was directly confirmed when the IG released its final report Thursday. The information I laid out in my July 31 column was laid bare in the IG report’s official timeline. IG Michael Horowitz declared Comey’s conduct so egregious that it created a “dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees — and the many thousands more former FBI employees — who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information.”
