Trey Gowdy said something unbelievable about the Deep State
Trump supporters are seething about the Deep State’s cover up of the FBI’s crimes against Donald Trump.
Under former Director James Comey, the FBI deployed spies, obtained FISA warrants and launched an investigation based on fake news.
But Trey Gowdy had something unbelievable to say about efforts to hold the Deep State accountable.
Republicans in Congress are fed up with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein stonewalling their investigation into the FBI’s wrongdoing during the 2016 campaign.
But Trey Gowdy threw cold water on those efforts by saying he would oppose impeaching Rosenstein.
The Daily Caller reports:
“No. For what? Impeach him for what?” Gowdy told Margaret Brennan on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “No.”
“I’m not convinced there is a movement,” Gowdy said, referring to a report from Politico that Reps. Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan, and others are preparing impeachment documents to oust the deputy attorney general.
Rosenstein has been the focus of intense criticism by Republicans frustrated by his handling of both the Russia investigation and his reluctance to turn over information related to FBI agent bias against President Trump, and Gowdy has also been a critic.
“I’ve had my differences with Rod Rosenstein,” the South Carolina congressman said. “I talk to him quite often privately, which again is a lot more constructive than the public hearings we have.”
Gowdy stated that if Rosenstein should be removed then Trump should fire him.
But Trump can’t fire Rosenstein.
Congress would move to impeach him since Rosenstein is overseeing the Mueller investigation.
The only recourse to hold Rosenstein accountable is impeachment.
