After a lengthy meeting in which representatives of the FBI met with Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) and explained why they had to infiltrate and spy on the Trump campaign, both congressmen agreed "it was the proper thing to do."
"Before I came to congress I was a prosecutor in South Carolina," Gowdy said. "There were numerous instances where I worked with the FBI to bring down dangerous criminals. That built a bond of trust that I could rely on in the pursuit of justice. When they told me that they were suspicious of Trump's connections to Russia and that a covert sting operation was warranted I took them at their wordas I had so many times before."
"The subsequent lack of evidence for the FBI's suspicions doesn't prove that those suspicions weren't sincere," Gowdy added. "In hindsight, I suppose we can all breathe a sigh of relief that the suspicions turned out to be unwarranted, but the Agency had to act without the benefit of hindsight to protect this country from a potential external threat. Fortunately, the mucking around they did during the campaign didn't affect the outcome of the election. I think we let bygones be bygones rather than further tarnish the sterling reputation of this great law-enforcement agency."
Burr concurred with Gowdy's assessment and endeavored to address the perception of bias. "Some of my Republican colleagues are upset that Trump was singled out for scrutiny," he observed. "They want to know why the FBI didn't similarly monitor the Clinton campaign. They say that tens of millions of dollars from Russian-owned businesses found their way into the Clinton Foundation after the Uranium One deal was approved by Hillary when she was Secretary of State. They say that she mishandled classified communications and destroyed evidence. Well, the FBI did investigate Hillary and found her innocent of all charges. So there was no need to inquire any further after July of 2016."
Meanwhile, disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has demanded immunity from prosecution in exchange for testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee next week. McCabe's lawyer, Michael Bromwich, insisted that "the immunity request doesn't mean my client is acknowledging any wrongdoing. It's just a precaution against someone else using his testimony to construct a case against him. In fact, documents exonerating Mr. McCabe are currently being withheld by the FBI in an attempt to scapegoat him for the misdeeds ordered by former FBI Director James Comey."

Gowdy is another one who can stick it. Loser.
Gowdy has finally shown his true colors.
How would he and the deep state like it if they were being spied upon. One could hear the wailing and whining from sea to shining sea when they found out.
Then its completely proper for these “Key GOP Leaders” to have every bit of THEIR private lives and every single thing they do exposed to the public for scrutiny and legal examination.
These 5th columnist need to go
