Representative Trey Gowdy — a fan favorite among conservatives — recently spoke with Fox News and dropped a rather cryptic nugget about the Department of Justice and the Clintons, leaving viewers highly intrigued.
This has been a trending topic in the aftermath of the firing of FBI Director James Comey by President Trump.
Gowdy stated that “history will be much kinder to Jim Comey in that July press conference than the Democrats were.”
According to Townhall:
“I think he had access to information that, because he is a stand-up guy he’s not gonna disseminate classified information — although God knows everybody else is…so all your viewers see is this meeting on the tarmac,” he explained.
“Jim Comey had access to additional information that I am convinced left him with no other choice than to make the decision he made in July,” he added.
Trying to understand what Gowdy was cryptically suggesting, MacCallum asked if he was saying there was pressure on Comey to avoid prosecuting Clinton.
“No, no, no. I think he had access to information and he wanted to safeguard the integrity of the investigation, and the integrity of the process, and I probably ought to just leave it right there,” Gowdy replied.
“Trust me when I tell you this, Martha — I know what it was and I have been a critic of James Comey in the past. But he made the only decision he could have made with respect to appropriating that decision away from the Department of Justice and making the decision himself,” he continued.
McCallum took another wild stab at deciphering what Gowdy was getting at, saying, “I only take away from that that you are suggesting that there were more entanglements between the Clintons and perhaps the Justice Department than everyone understands.”
Gowdy, still playing it cool, simply answered by saying McCallum was “very perceptive.”
As is usually the case when it comes to government scandals, things seem to be much more complicated than we originally thought.
What Gowdy is getting at here, is that often times there’s more than meets the eye when attempting to hold highly popular officials and politicians like the Clintons accountable for their actions, and in this case, Comey made the only decision he could given the circumstances.
It’ll be interesting to see if any of the details in this odd exchange are ever brought to light and made public, and more importantly, if any action will be taken because of it.
