Recently, it was revealed that James Comey premeditated to exonerate Hillary Clinton before any sort of investigation was attempted into her use of an illegal, insecure email server.
Trey Gowdy is now demanding that James Comey return for questioning so he can get to the bottom of why it appears that his investigation was nothing but a sham and he never intended to hold Hillary accountable.
Comey’s behavior as the head of the FBI has been revealed to be rather bizarre the way he handled the Clinton email investigation and how he leaked information to the press.
There is something not right about Comey and President Trump did the right thing by firing him.
From The Daily Caller:
GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy said Thursday that there is “sufficient factual basis” to investigate why former FBI Director James Comey decided not to charge Hillary Clinton before interviewing key witnesses.
“There is sufficient factual basis to bring him in and ask him, ‘When did you make up your mind that you weren’t going to charge Secretary Clinton?’ I can tell you because I’ve seen with my own eyes he made up his mind before he interviewed her,” Gowdy told Fox News. “How far back, whether it was two weeks or two months, quite frankly is immaterial to me. He did it before he interviewed the last witness.”
One of the first rules of an investigation is to hold off on a final conclusion until reviewing all evidence that witnesses present, something that Comey did not do, according to Gowdy.
“If there’s anything that’s axiomatic in investigations it’s that you don’t make up your mind until you interview the last witness. It is beyond dispute that he made up his mind not to charge Secretary Clinton before he interviewed her. There’s no question about that. What my friends in the Senate have uncovered is he may well have made up his mind before he interviewed the last dozen witnesses,” Gowdy said.
The congressman stopped short of agreeing with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that Comey was guilty, and said that if someone in the administration has evidence of wrongdoing, they should refer it to the Department of Justice.
“Alleging criminal violations is very serious which is why I don’t do it. Press secretaries don’t get to make that call. Members of Congress don’t get to make that call. Reporters don’t get to make that call. That’s an executive branch function after an investigation, a charging decision is made by a career prosecutor,” he said. “If it’s that clean and clear I’m sure she [Sanders] referred it to the Department of Justice.”
“How in the world my fellow citizens can have confidence in an investigation where you reached a conclusion before you even gather all the facts and all the evidence is stunning,” Gowdy said.
