Trey Gowdy Defends the FBI Against Trump’s “Spy” Comments

Here’s Why.

Trey Gowdy, the Senator from South Carolina who can always be counted on for some common sense in the political soap opera that is Washington, defended the FBI against Trump’s accusations of “spying” this week.

In an interview with CBS’ ‘This Morning’ on Wednesday, Gowdy said he saw no evidence there had been any wrongdoing on the part of the FBI and that Trump’s language was misleading.

“I don’t know what the FBI could have done or should have done other than run out a lead that someone loosely connected with the campaign was making assertions about Russia,” said Gowdy, who is the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

“I think you would want the FBI to find whether or not there was any validity to what those people were saying,” he explained.

“Think back to what the president himself told [former FBI Director] James Comey,” Gowdy continued. “He said, ‘I didn’t collude with Russia, but if anyone connected with my campaign did, I want you to investigate it.’ It strikes me that that’s exactly what the FBI was doing.”

When asked about Trump’s claim that a “spy” was placed in the Trump campaign, Gowdy said that was not the proper terminology for what the FBI had done.

“That is not a term I’ve ever used in the criminal justice system,” he explained. “I’ve never heard the term ‘spy’ used. Undercover informant, confidential informant, those are all words I’m familiar with. I’ve never heard the term spy used.”

“That’s an espionage term, it’s not a law enforcement term,” he added.

Gowdy, The Hill notes, is a former federal prosecutor and went on to defend the use of informants by law enforcement agencies, noting he couldn’t think of a major case he’d been involved with that hadn’t relied on confidential sources.

Gowdy, a former federal prosecutor, also defended the use of informants by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, saying he couldn’t think of a major case he’d been involved in where confidential sources had not provided information. He emphasized it was up to law enforcement to decide what to do with that information.

Psaki When Asked Why Joe Didn’t Wear Mask After Signing EO: ‘Bigger Issues to Worry About’

She’s going to be making plenty of excuses.

It is going to be a trip covering Joe Biden’s “presidency.” On Day 1, the guy signs an Executive Order mandating masks must be worn on federal property, then decides to not wear one later that same night at the Lincoln Memorial. When asked why that happened, new Press Secretary Jen Psaki dodged. Go figure. Didn’t Joe (and every liberal, for that matter) blast Trump whenever he didn’t wear a mask?

While Biden signed executive orders meant to combat the coronavirus outbreak, AP White House reporter Zeke Miller pressed him about his previously-announced goal of having 100 million Americans vaccinated within the first 100 days in office. Miller asked whether the bar should be set “higher” to encourage even more Americans to get vaccinated. WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1352349221161197568

Report: President Trump Reportedly Thinking of Forming New ‘Patriot Party’

Has a ring to it, no?

Before you get too excited about that headline (thinking the GOP is done with Donald Trump no longer at the helm) imagine all the negative aspects that would come with forming a new party. 1.) It would divide the Republican Party in two. 2.) Having another major party would split the vote, meaning Democrats keep on winning. It’s not the greatest idea, if he’s serious about it. What Trump should do is start his own TV network and social media platform ASAP. MAGA TV. You’re welcome. Anyway, check this out… The outlet, citing inside sources reportedly familiar with the matter, said that the president would like to call the party the “Patriot Party.” “Trump discussed the matter with several aides and other people close to him last week,” the outlet reported. “The president said he would want to call the new party the ‘Patriot Party,’ the people said.” The Daily Wire reported that “top pro-Trump Republicans” close to the administration said that it was a “bad idea” and would effectively split the Republican Party so that it would be nearly impossible for Republicans or otherwise to defeat the Democratic Party in elections.
