Trey Gowdy shared one fact about Robert Mueller that will leave your jaw on the ground
Even though Trey Gowdy retired from Congress, he is still in the limelight.
The South Carolina Republican appeared on Fox News for what everyone thought would be a routine interview.
And he just shared one observation about Robert Mueller that will leave your jaw on the ground.
Trey Gowdy is beginning his post-Congress career.
The former South Carolina Congressman joined Nelson, Mullins, Riley, and Scarborough as head of the firm’s white collar defense and government investigation division.
Gowdy spent the last three years exposing Hillary Clinton’s illegal private email server as well as the abuses of power perpetrated by both Robert Mueller and the FBI.
Given his bird’s eye view of the investigation, Trump supporters were shocked to hear Gowdy say he would never describe them as a hoax and claimed Mueller was conducting a fair investigation.
“You’ll never hear me refer to [the] Russia [investigation] as a hoax or a witch hunt. I’ve always said Mueller should be given the time, independence and resources to complete the job he was assigned,” Gowdy said, adding that “it is in our country’s best interest for Mueller to complete the investigation as soon as possible.”
“It’s been hopelessly politicized,” he said. “Why is it not enough that we identify a hostile foreign adversary who tried to influence our election?”
“I want [Mueller] to do a job in which everyone can have confidence. I know he’s smart enough to realize how incredibly divisive this is,” Gowdy continued. “Leave him alone and let him do his job. And to him I would say: Do it as quickly as you can and then let us know what you’ve found.”
Despite his firsthand experience with the Department of Justice and FBI’s underhanded conduct in the Russia Probe, Gowdy has shown a tendency to defer to law enforcement institutions.
This pattern of behavior left some Trump supporters puzzled.
But overall, Congresses ability to investigate the Deep State is weakened by Gowdy’s departure.
