Gowdy Gives Comey A Piece Of His Mind

Representative used his opening statement on Tuesday to skewer James Comey. Speaking during testimony from IG Michael Horowitz on the review of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.

According to Fox News:

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy scorched James Comey in a blistering opening statement at a high-profile congressional hearing on Tuesday, declaring “we can’t survive with a justice system we don’t trust.” 

“We see Jim Comey and Jim Comey alone deciding which DOJ policies to follow and which to ignore,” he said. 

Gowdy accused Comey of watering down his initial statement on the investigation’s findings and making other decisions on his own. While Comey has suggested he acted unilaterally out of concern for the Justice Department’s handling of the case, Gowdy questioned why he didn’t seek a special counsel — as he indirectly did regarding concerns about the Trump administration. 

“Instead, he appointed himself FBI director, attorney general, special counsel, lead investigator and the general arbiter of what is good and right in the world according to him,” Gowdy said. 

Gowdy then brought up the prejudgement from the FBI agents and how it could potentially affect the Russia probe. Comey is currently under investigation as well as the dirty FBI agent Peter Strzok and how his biases affected the Mueller probes inception.
