On Face The Nation this Easter weekend, Representative Trey Gowdy and Senator Tim Scott joined Margaret Brennan.
She asked about the Mueller investigation and what they thought of it.
Trey said the Congressional investigations were “not serious” and “terrible.”
But, not for the reason some of the MSM would like for us to believe. Gowdy said it was because of people like California Representative Adam Schiff politicizing and leaking during an investigation.
Brennan began by exchanging pleasantries, then asking what it says to them that Mueller is focusing on Gates. Gates has been known to have business ties with Manafort during 2011. And currently, Mueller is pushing for help with collusion from Gates.
South Carolina State Representative, Trey Gowdy (R) responded, “It says that I’m glad we have Bob Mueller. I’m glad we have an independent ball and strike caller. Congress has proven itself incapable of conducting serious investigations. And our best hope for finding…”
Margaret interrupted him to clarify, “You include our own committee, House Intelligence, on that?”
And Gowdy continued, “Absolutely. Not just House Intelligence. Congressional investigations leak like the “Gossip Girls.” They – I mean, they’re terrible and I would be telling you that if I were staying in Congress.”
Trey then added, “They are just not serious. Serious investigations don’t leak. Serious investigations don’t make up their mind first and then go in search of the evidence to validate your previously held conviction.” (MORE BELOW)
After a pause, the Face the Nation hostess asked, “Did your committee do that with clearing any collusion in the case of Russia?”
And Gowdy, hilariously responded with the truth! He said, “I think Adam Schiff in March of 2017 said he had evidence more than circumstantial but not direct. And oh, by the way, there is no body of evidence that’s more than circumstantial but not direct.”
Trey went on to mention, that Schiff said he had evidence of collusion. And that everyone has been waiting for over a year for him to actually produce that evidence!
Rep Gowdy continued, “So yeah. He started with a conclusion. Then he went in search of the evidence. And he hasn’t found it yet. That is not serious. And — and I’m hoping that either the Senate investigation or Mueller will – will be more objective.”
