Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) responded to Chuck Schumer’s calls for Intel chairman Devin Nunes to step down.
Trey Gowdy went off:
I just love it when Senator Schumer gives Republicans advice on what we ought to do. Devin is doing exactly what the chairman is [supposed] to do.”
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., reaffirmed on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday that the person who leaked details of then-national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn’s phone calls with Russia’s envoy to the U.S. had broken the law.
“That’s the felonious dissemination of classified material,” Gowdy told host Tucker Carlson. “[House intelligence committee] Chairman [Devin] Nunes’ point is, I want to know whether or not other people have been unmasked, even though you don’t know about it publicly yet.”
Rep. Nunes, a California Republican, has faced calls from Democrats and some Republicans to recuse himself from the House intelligence committee’s investigation of possible ties between Moscow and the Trump campaign. This week, Nunes revealed that he met with a secret source on the White House grounds to review documents related to possible surveillance of Trump team members.
Rep. Trey Gowdy:
“I just love it when Senator Schumer gives Republicans advice on what we ought to do,” Gowdy said. “Devin is doing exactly what the chairman is [supposed] to do.”
“I wish Senator Schumer and some of the other Democrats would be interested in the authenticity and reliability of the underlying data [rather than] the means by which it was acquired,” Gowdy said.
