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.

WATCH: Biden Refers to Horn-Honking Pro-Trump ‘Folks’ As ‘Ugly’ At Minnesota Rally

Ain’t he something!?

Joe Biden is still campaigning, apparently. Still speaking gibberish. Still hating on America. If rally crowd size is any indication, Biden is going to lose big on November 3. Until then, here’s the former vice president referring to pro-Trump protesters as “ugly.” From Fox News: Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden jabbed at a group of Trump supporters who honked their horns at a campaign stop in Minnesota, while he attempted to detail his plans to combat the coronavirus pandemic on Friday night. Biden spoke over the noise throughout his speech at the drive-in rally in St. Paul. The former vice president ripped the Trump administration’s handling for the pandemic and appeared to grow irritated when the horn-honking interrupted his explanation for supporting a nationwide mask mandate. “Dr. Fauci called for a mask mandate last week,” Biden said. “This isn’t a political statement like those ugly folks over there beeping the horns. This is a patriotic duty, for God’s sake.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RNCResearch/status/1322305326188777473?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1322305326188777473%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-biden-refers-to-horn-honking-trump-supporters-as-ugly-folks-while-promoting-bringing-the-country-together WATCH: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1313200566550564864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1313200566550564864%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-joe-biden-telling-voters-to-think-about-trump-being-given-the-death-blow-while-still-in-hospital%2F REACTIONS:

Kamala Harris: First Thing Joe & I Do Will Be to ‘Work to Get Rid of That Tax Cut’

Is this what the people want, Harris?

Vice President Kamala Harris. Has a pretty awful ring to it, no? If things don’t go America’s way on November 3, it could most certainly become a reality. On the to do list in a Biden administration, you know, other than using the Constitution as a Swiffer pad? How about raising taxes? Sound good to you? From Breitbart: The cuts practically doubled the standard deduction for singles from $6,350 in 2017 to $12,000 in 2018; nearly doubled the standard deduction for married couples from $12,700 to $24,400; and bumped up the child tax credit from $1,000 in 2017 to $2,000 in 2018. At a rally on October 30, Harris blabbered, “I promise you this — as a first order of business, Joe Biden and I are about to work to get rid of that tax cut.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1322313887107239936?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1322313887107239936%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2020%2F10%2F30%2Fkamala-harris-joe-biden-and-i-are-about-to-work-to-get-rid-of-that-tax-cut%2F Harris hates women, apparently. Her running mate has been accused of sexual harassment, yet she had no problem being on the same ticket. In fact, Kamala said she was “proud” of Jacob Blake despite his all-around violent history (especially with women), huh? What about Blake’s refusal to listen to law enforcement as they gave him orders, Kamala? Weren’t you the top cop of California, at one point? From Breitbart: Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) told Jacob Blake Jr. on Monday that she is “proud of him and how he is working through his pain,” according to attorney Benjamin Crump, who represents the Blake family. […] At the time of the confrontation, there was a warrant for Blake’s arrest for “third-degree sexual assault, trespassing and disorderly conduct,” according to the Associated Press. A knife was found in his car, Wisconsin authorities later revealed. https://twitter.com/AttorneyCrump/status/1303035889715752961?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1303035889715752961%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2F2020-election%2F2020%2F09%2F07%2Fkamala-harris-told-jacob-blake-she-was-proud-of-him-sexual-assault%2F VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqNefarA828#action=share
