It appears as though the swamp has another creature, considering that Congressman Trey Gowdy is now defending the FBI’s use of spies in the 2016 Trump campaign. Gowdy gracefully dances around questions about Trump using the term “spy” and takes his time in explaining the definition of a “confidential informant“ instead. Gowdy says that ‘confidential informants’ are “used everywhere”. According to Gowdy, the FBI “acted properly. Why would we trust him though? First, he blew it on the Hillary investigation, and now he’s lending more credence to deep state shenanigans.
“I am even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got and that it has nothing to do with Donald Trump,” Gowdy, Republican Congressman from South Carolina, told Fox News on Tuesday. Then on Wednesday, Gowdy said he had “never heard the term ‘spy’ used” and did not see evidence of it. “Informants are used all day, everyday by law enforcement. – and they are sources of information. You call them ‘confidential informants’ because you don’t want everyone to know they have a relationship with law enforcement” Gowdy explained on CBS This Morning. When asked whether or not he thought the president’s use of the term “Spygate” was misleading, Trey Gowdy said “Ummm….I’m a lousy politician and was an ok prosecutor.”…”I’m not good at marketing. I’m not good at branding”.
“I’m a lousy politician and was an ok prosecutor.” – Trey Gowdy
Trey Gowdy is the same guy who led the investigation into Hillary Clinton for events in Benghazi. He talked a big game but never actually made anything happen. Gowdy chaired his chamber’s select-committee investigation of the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. ambassador’s compound in Benghazi, Libya. This attack was initially mischaracterized by the Obama administration as a riot in response to an anti-Islamic video which was supposedly sparking outrage in the Muslim world. In the end, the Gowdy panel failed to direct blame for the tragedy or its aftermath at Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Even Gowdy himself admitted that he would probably be remembered as a loser and someone who didn’t accomplish much
Gowdy is set to retire after his current term. He’s leaving congress with a dwindled reputation among Trump supporters as “a sellout, a RINO and a squish” for, in his view, defending the legitimacy of the investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and for not capitalizing on conservative principles “as some of my critics have.” As the days go by, circumstances continues to pile that show Trey Gowdy was nothing more than controlled opposition from the very beginning. Quite surprising just how little he got done, yet was held in such high esteem. His get-nothing-done record for the Hillary case doesn’t do him any favors. More should have been done to bring Justice for Ambassador Stevens, who was assassinated by militants that stormed the Libyan Embassy.
