GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy said today that he wants James ‘Showboat” Comey to get his rear end back in front of Congress and start providing some answers.
Gowdy said there is “sufficient factual basis” to investigate why James Comey made the decision to let Hillary off the hook.
Correct America wants answers. Trey went on Fox News and gave Comey the news he has long been dreading,
“There is sufficient factual basis to bring him in and ask him, ‘When did you make up your mind that you weren’t going to charge Secretary Clinton?’ I can tell you because I’ve seen with my own eyes he made up his mind before he interviewed her. How far back, whether it was two weeks or two months, quite frankly is immaterial to me. He did it before he interviewed the last witness.”
According to the Daily Caller, former prosecutor Trey informed Fox of the rules of investigation, mainly you hold off on any conclusions until all evidence and witnesses have been reviewed, something Comey clearly didn’t do.
“If there’s anything that’s axiomatic in investigations it’s that you don’t make up your mind until you interview the last witness. It is beyond dispute that he made up his mind not to charge Secretary Clinton before he interviewed her. There’s no question about that. What my friends in the Senate have uncovered is he may well have made up his mind before he interviewed the last dozen witnesses,” Gowdy said.
Gowdy didn’t completely agree with Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ comments yesterday that Comey was guilt as all get out.
“Alleging criminal violations is very serious which is why I don’t do it. Press secretaries don’t get to make that call. Members of Congress don’t get to make that call. Reporters don’t get to make that call. That’s an executive branch function after an investigation, a charging decision is made by a career prosecutor,” he said. “If it’s that clean and clear I’m sure she [Sanders] referred it to the Department of Justice.”
“How in the world my fellow citizens can have confidence in an investigation where you reached a conclusion before you even gather all the facts and all the evidence is stunning,” Gowdy added.
