Trey Gowdy has had enough of Democrats grasping at straws with the debunked Russian dossier.
Democrats are so desperate to tear down Trump and his administration, because their policies are working so well, that they are proving what bubbles of fantasy they live in where they believe any informed voter would believe any of their nonsense.
Democrats are so dense, Gowdy had to come out inform them that the dossier actually isn’t “real.”
But I doubt if it will do much good because “real” doesn’t mean much to people who live in an elitist bubble who thrive on what they can convince people to believe and not the actual truth.
The Daily Caller reports:
Democrats are “fearful” that the Trump dossier is “a piece of fiction,” one that the FBI used to form the basis of its investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government.
That’s one theory that South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy is proposing for why Democrats are pushing back so hard against a GOP effort to get answers about the dossier from the FBI and Justice Department.In an interview with The Daily Caller, the House Intelligence Committee member addressed claims from his Democratic colleagues and some in the media that he and his fellow Republicans are attempting to discredit the dossier and its author, former British spy Christopher Steele, in order to help Trump.
“I don’t know why anyone — from [California Rep.] Adam Schiff, to Vanity Fair, to Rachel Maddow — would not be curious whether or not the world’s premier law enforcement agency relied upon a dossier in connection with an investigation without vetting it,” Gowdy told TheDC on Friday.
“For the life of me I don’t understand why they are focused on this,” Gowdy says of the Democratic pushback, “unless they are fearful that the bureau did rely on a piece of fiction.”
He was responding to Democrats’ criticism of a GOP-led effort to subpoena Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray for information about the dossier.
Committee Republicans issued a subpoena for Sessions and Wray Aug. 24, seeking information about how central the dossier is to the collusion investigation and how it was vetted.
The agencies did not provide documents in response to the subpoena, so the committee extended a deadline until Sept. 14 while also seeking meetings with Sessions and Wray to have them explain why information about the dossier should be withheld from Congress.
Democrats on the committee — Schiff, Connecticut Rep. Jim Himes, and California Rep. Eric Swalwell — have alleged that Republicans are taking a unilateral and unnecessary step to discredit the dossier.
But Gowdy dismisses the Democrats’ complaint, telling TheDC, “I really don’t know what in the hell they’re talking about.”
Gowdy, a former federal prosecutor, says that the FBI and DOJ have ignored “months and months of requests” for information about the dossier. The agencies have largely ignored similar requests made by the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has also focused heavily on the dossier but has yet to issue subpoenas for the FBI and DOJ.
