    Knowing who the humans and nonhumans are that support the people, and those who don’t is now important for Americans to know who they live with. Wake up calls are coming with or without consent of the people. Things are more noticeable everyday since the pole shift and showing in every nation with its government. Trump the president that was selected for the people by the Creator is feeling the backing of all those who support good things for the planet. Judgement day has come and the revelations are for Deep State corruption. We are responsible for our actions and...
  • Gowdy scorches Comey for 'water-downed' Hillary probe, 'appointing himself' judge and jury

    House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy scorched James Comey in a blistering opening statement at a high-profile congressional hearing on Tuesday, declaring “we can’t survive with a justice system we don’t trust.” Gowdy kicked off the hearing featuring testimony from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz on his review of the Hillary Clinton email case. The top DOJ watchdog is on Capitol Hill for the second day in a row to discuss the explosive report. But Gowdy launched into Tuesday's session -- a joint hearing held by the House oversight and judiciary panels -- with a fiery condemnation of the...

    A joint committee from House Ove rsight and House Judiciary are conducting a hearing today at 10:00am EDT with DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Unlike the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday the House team has representatives far more knowledgeable of the issues. Hopefully, expertise will deliver better questions. Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte has direct primary oversight authority over the DOJ. Chairman Trey Gowdy comes from the aggregate Oversight/Reform Committee. Far more House members have read the 568-page IG report. Due to a better informed group of members we are more optimistic for detailed, specific, confrontational and challenging questions to draw...

    House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy said that House Speaker Paul Ryan led a meeting with senior Justice Department and FBI officials Friday, and claimed he “made it very clear” the House will use “its full arsenal of constitutional weapons to gain compliance” on outstanding subpoenas. “I don’t want the drama,” Gowdy said , adding that contempt of Congress is on the table. “I want the documents.”

    Hillary Clinton lost, and the bullies have come out full steam ahead toward Trump, Gowdy, and Sanders the best White House Press Secretary in history. All three of these people have shown the world and Americans, by words and actions that they want the truth, they want justice, and they want a better world for the people that they serve. How long are those who had years to do what Trump has done in his short time as president going to bully him and those who support his efforts? How long will those whose words, actions, and history have shown...
  • Trey Gowdy Tears into FBI’s ‘Unprecedented’ Clinton Probe Decisions After Reading IG Report

    House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) was furious after reading the findings of a lengthy report put together by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) after the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton Email Probe. Gowdy, who’s had the chance to look at the report before it’s released to the public, said in a statement that he is “alarmed, angered, and deeply disappointed” by “numerous failures by DOJ and FBI” in investigating potential Espionage Act violations by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”

    “All lies and jests. Still a man hears what he wants to hear and he disregards the rest. Lie, lie, la lie…”So wrote poet, songwriter Paul Simon. Simon uses the story of an aging boxer to remind us of how the mistakes and choices we’ve made during our lives leave scars. Perhaps it was just a coincidence that he used the word lie repeatedly in the piece. Perhaps not. We are all carry the reminders of every glove that laid us down or cut us. Some of the deepest cuts I’ve received were a direct result from my naïve acceptance...

    A vocal bloc of House conservatives are fuming at Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) behind the scenes, after the lame-duck speaker publicly sided with Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) in the debate over the FBI’s tactics in its investigation into the Trump campaign. Gowdy shot down allegations last week that the FBI improperly used a confidential informant to “spy” on the campaign, saying that the bureau “did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do.” Ryan on Wednesday called Gowdy’s assessment “accurate,” dealing another blow to the claims dubbed “Spygate” by President Trump. But Trump allies on Capitol Hill say that...

    Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Wednesday pushed back against President Trump’s “spygate” claims, siding with Rep. Trey Gowdy’s (R-S.C.) defense of the FBI’s investigation into Trump’s campaign and Russia. “Chairman Gowdy’s initial assessment is accurate, but we have more digging to do,” Ryan told reporters during his weekly news conference. While both Ryan and Gowdy received a closed-door briefing on the bureau’s use of an informant in the investigation, there is still an outstanding request to view the underlying documents to support the briefing. "We have some more documents to review. We still have some unanswered questions... If we got...

    Top-level people in the world of intelligence and independent journalism report that House Oversight chairman Trey Gowdy effectively blocked investigations into the FBI spying on the President Donald Trump campaign. This is not the first time Gowdy, who endorsed Marco Rubio in the presidential primaries, has shut down an investigation on behalf of the establishment. But the fact that many traditional conservative outlets carry water and run interference for Gowdy, painting him as a hero, makes it harder to call Gowdy out. Thomas Paine, who represents the team of connected pro-America journalists and operatives at True Pundit, revealed Gowdy’s nefariousness.

    Gowdy’s fire truck pulled into Fox News Tuesday night for an interview by Martha MacCallum. An able lawyer, the congressman is suddenly on a mission to protect the Justice Department and the FBI from further criticism. So, when Ms. MacCallum posed the question about FBI spying on the Trump campaign, Gowdy deftly changed the subject: Rather than address the campaign, he repeatedly insisted that Donald Trump personally was never the “target” of the FBI’s investigation. The only “target,” Gowdy maintains, was Russia. This is a dodge on at least two levels. First, to repeat, the question raised by the FBI’s...

    Something has become increasingly weird about the DOJ and FBI intransigence at releasing the two-page “Electronic Communication” (“EC”) that was written by CIA Director John Brennan to initiate the July 2016 FBI Counterintelligence operation against the campaign of presidential candidate Donald Trump. The weird something is: According to CIA Director John Brennan’s May 2017 testimony he personally briefed the Gang of Eight members, including Devin Nunes, “individually” in 2016, on that origination document. As such, in 2018 Devin Nunes would only be seeking a review of a document he was already briefed on.
  • COLLUSION Trey Gowdy Didn’t Even See Documents He Claims Exonerate FBI On Spygate: Reports

    Gowdy claimed that the FBI's use of spies against the Trump campaign was perfectly proper, but multiple reports indicate he never even saw the full records Congress subpoenaed on the matter. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) recently suggested the FBI did nothing wrong when it used at least one government informant to secretly collect information on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Public reports indicate, however, that Gowdy never even reviewed the relevant documents on the matter subpoenaed by Congress. In fact, a spokeswoman for Gowdy told The Federalist that the congressman doesn’t even know what documents and records were subpoenaed by the...

    Rep.

A week after he received a closed-door briefing on the bureau’s use of an informant, Gowdy told CBS News that he had seen no evidence to support Trump’s claims that a “spy” was improperly inserted into his 2016 campaign."That is not a term I've ever used in the criminal justice system," Gowdy said. “I’ve never heard the term ‘spy’ used. Undercover informant, confidential informant, those are all...

    Well, this will make for awkward conversation the next time that Trey Gowdy and Donald Trump meet, which will … be the first time the two have met. The retiring chair of the House Oversight Committee told CBS This Morning that Trump’s allegation of FBI spying on his campaign doesn’t hold water. Gowdy tells John Dickerson that the FBI acted appropriately and that their target was Russia, not Trump’s campaign: “When the FBI comes into contact with information about what a foreign government may be doing in our election cycle, I think they have an obligation to run it...

    Last night on Fox News Representative Trey Gowdy stunned many people with multiple comments.  There are multiple aspects to the interview that were/are alarming. In one segment Gowdy stated the Mueller investigation was both a criminal and counterintelligence investigation.  Moments later Mr. Gowdy proclaimed his advanced knowledge of the innocence of FBI Director James Comey and Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe surrounding Spygate. In another segment Gowdy, a former prosecutor himself, asserted that President Trump should sit down with Robert Mueller for a dangerous inquisition by a team of political prosecutors hired specifically because of their adverse ideology.  SEE INTERVIEW HERE.
