    In April the inept and corrupt Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that he was not going to create a special counsel to investigate the Mueller investigation despite calls from Republicans in the House to do so. Instead, AG Sessions stated that he was going to ask an Obama appointee to look into the situation. We knew then that Sessions was balking and doing all he could to prevent justice in his Justice Department and now there’s proof. CNN first reported that John Huber, the federal prosecutor in Utah, has been investigating Republicans’ allegations that the FBI abused a surveillance program...

    A top Republican on Sunday criticized President Trump for missing a “good opportunity” to confront Moscow about election meddling during his controversial news conference with Russian leader Vladimir Putin. “The president missed, I think, a really good opportunity to distinguish the United States from any other country, but especially from Russia,” Rep. Trey Gowdy, the chair of the House Oversight Committee, said on “Fox News Sunday.” The South Carolina lawmaker urged Trump to listen to his advisers and the intelligence community when they tell him the Kremlin interfered in the 2016 presidential election. If he doesn’t listen, they should step...

    "Impeach him for what?" Gowdy said. "No." "I've had my differences with Rod Rosenstein," said Gowdy, who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. "I talk to him quite often privately, which again is a lot more constructive than the public hearings we have."
  • Strzok: FBI-Bias Probe Will ‘Tear Down Underpinnings’ of ‘Law & Order’

    Embattled FBI agent Peter Strzok suggested during an open hearing Thursday that the ongoing congressional investigation into political bias within the FBI would severely damage the institution of American law enforcement. “This entire exercise comes at a cost,” said Strzok, who was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. “We are doing things that are going to, in the future, tear down the underpinnings of what represents law and order in this country. And there is not a robust, thick wall there. I think people don’t appreciate how tenuous the balance of...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., warned that if Obama administration officials he referred to a congressional task force for testimony on the Russia investigation refuse to cooperate, they will face subpoenas. Nunes wrote a letter Monday to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., with a list of 10 names from the Obama-era State Department and White House on Monday, urging them to interview these individuals in an "open setting." During a Monday evening interview on Fox News, Nunes emphasized that because all the people on his list are American...

    What were the Obama/Clinton administration doing for Americans? Congressman Trey Gowdy has been exposing corruption since 2011, from many organizations in Washington D.C. but everyone now knows why no one was punished. NSA, CIA, FBI bias? The most corrupt politicians are calling for guns to be confiscated, because they are the ones with the greatest fear. Those who have robbed the people blind while in positions of power and trust want guns out of the hands of the people. Those who have transported, sold, raped, and murdered children for a global business want guns out of the citizens hands. How...

    As the hard-hitting questions remain about the Russia probe, and the way the FBI, special counsel, and the DOJ handled the investigation, Rod Rosenstein sits before the House of Representatives. When Trey Gowdy was given his time, Trey Gowdy owns Rod Rosenstein during the latest Congressional hearing. Representative Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) criticized Justice Department investigators for prolonging their investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election during a tense House Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday.

    FBI agent Peter Strzok offered to testify before the House Judiciary Committee in a letter from his attorney released on Sunday. The letter was drafted by Strzok's attorney Aitan Goelman and was sent to House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.). The letter comes amid reports that Goodlatte had begun initiating procedures to subpoena Strzok, who was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election meddling after it was revealed he sent anti-Trump text messages during the 2016 presidential campaign. "While you are, of course, free to continue pursuing this process, it is wholly unnecessary," Goelman wrote in the...

    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...

    Big League Politics ^ | May 31, 2018 | By Patrick Howley
    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.

    While President Trump still touts the unfounded claim that the Obama administration improperly spied on his 2016 campaign, senior Republican lawmakers have steered clear of the conspiracy theory since they received classified briefings last week on the role of an FBI confidential informant in an investigation aimed at unmasking Russian interference in the election. That silence broke when Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), one of the few who got the Justice Department briefing, said he believes the FBI acted appropriately when the informant, a retired American academic living in England, met with three of Trump’s campaign aides. "When the FBI comes...
  • 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...

    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...

    President Donald Trump said Wednesday he regretted choosing Jeff Sessions as attorney general, a continuation of the President's frustrations over Sessions' decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation. Quoting Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina, who noted on CBS earlier Wednesday that Trump "could have picked somebody else" for the position, Trump tweeted, "I wish I did!" Donald J.

"I am even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got, and that it has nothing to do with Donald Trump," Gowdy said on Fox News's "The Story."

    Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Thursday a meeting between a bipartisan group of House and Senate leaders and intelligence and law enforcement officials is a “farce” because the disclosure of classified information should be limited to the so-called “Gang of Eight” — a collection of Senate and House leaders who traditionally receive the briefings on sensitive intelligence matters. Two intelligence briefings are scheduled for Thursday afternoon to discuss the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. It is said to include details about an FBI informant who contacted members of the...
  • Nunes: No More Talks with DOJ until It Turns Over Documents

    House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes said Monday that he will refuse to meet again with the Justice Department until officials release documents he has requested about the Russia investigation. Nunes subpoenaed the Justice Department and threatened to hold officials in contempt of Congress if they refuse to release files regarding a confidential FBI informant who spoke to Trump campaign associates in 2016 about Russian election meddling. The California Republican said he and his colleague Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) had a “productive” meeting with DOJ officials a few weeks ago but ignored a Friday invite to meet again when they...

    Two senior House Republicans are accusing the Justice Department of being behind “anonymous attacks” in the press targeting a House Intelligence Committee GOP staffer who helped author the committee’s well-publicized memo alleging surveillance abuse by the FBI and DOJ during the 2016 election. The same House staffer is also a driving force behind the latest Russia records standoff. "I would have a lot more respect for DOJ or House committee Democrats if they would take out their frustrations on members of Congress, and leave staffers alone,” South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, told...
