Trey Gowdy isn’t the type to sugarcoat his views and he was just as straight forward as ever this morning when questioning FBI Director James Comey.
Gowdy drilled Comey about the investigation into the leak of intelligence to the media. Gowdy even reminded James Comey that Obama officials who leaked information to hurt President Trump can face 10 years in prison!
Rep. Gowdy: I thought it was against the law to disseminate classified information. Is it?
Director Comey: Oh yes. It’s a serious crime.
Gowdy seems to be more upset about these intel leaks that the FBI Director and you can see his frustration mount as Comey dances around the questions.
Comey tries to hide behind the idea that if he confirms the investigation, he will be confirming that confidential information was in fact leaked and therefore be compounding the crime itself.
But this excuse doesn’t hold water with Gowdy, as he tries to convey to Comey just how important it is for the American people to know that such crimes are being investigated.
Gowdy even warns Comey that if he doesn’t take this invasion of privacy seriously, HE may be the next victim!
It’s good to know that Trey Gowdy is passionate about protecting the American people, even if the Director of the FBI doesn’t seem to be.
