    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...

    Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) tore into the Justice Department on Sunday for failing to disclose in a clandestine surveillance warrant application that a controversial opposition research dossier detailing salacious allegations against President Trump was funded in part by political opponents. In an interview on "Fox News Sunday," Gowdy said that a secret court should have been told that the dossier was partially paid for by the Clinton campaign when the FBI sought a surveillance warrant on Carter Page, a former adviser on Trump's campaign. "The FBI missed a really good opportunity to tell the judge exactly who paid for that,"...

    "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."

    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...

    Retiring Congressman Trey Gowdy would be staying in Washington, but in a new role, if Senator Tim Scott has his way. Gowdy has said he will resume his law practice when his current term ends. But Scott, who like Gowdy is a Republican from South Carolina, said the current chairman of the House Oversight Committee is a natural fit for the Supreme Court. Justice Anthony Kennedy last week announced his retirement from the court, paving the way for President Donald Trump to nominate his second high court justice. In 2017, Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Trump has...

    This week, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein testified before the House Oversight Committee where he steadfastly continued to refuse to turn over FBI documents to Congress. He attempted to fend off GOP critics by telling them a "hypothetical" story. "Suppose there is a patriotic public servant who is trying to defend the nation against a dangerous person who is seeking to seize control of the US Government," Rosenstein suggested. "Wouldn't we want that public servant to use whatever means are necessary to achieve this objective? Suppose one of the means chosen was infiltrating informers into the inner circle of this...

    During a congressional hearing looking into the Hillary Clinton email investigation, Congressman Trey Gowdy finds out from the Inspector General of the State Department that Hillary Clinton declined to be interviewed by him. Missing email and records, resignations all because Hillary didn’t win, but truth is. Not all records and Trump is moving forward draining the swamp and exposing those who can remember the lies they told in the past. Follow the money and you’ll find how many were like Even in the garden with the snake…they all have taken a bite and are now ashamed to tell the people...

    Article's full title: "Trey Gowdy: With All This Bias At The FBI, I Don’t Know How Mueller Successfully Prosecutes Anyone" Excerpt: The key bit from a long interview on “Fox News Sunday.” Watch for about two and a half minutes where the clip picks up below. On Friday, marveling at Gowdy’s anger over the IG report, I flagged the following quote about Peter Strzok from his interview with Bret Baier the night before. No one within the GOP has been as stalwart a defender of the Russiagate probe as Gowdy has. The despair was palpable:

    The president runs the executive branch, after all. I confess to being more weary than dizzy from the Dr. Gowdy–and–Mr. Trey routine. Just three weeks ago, Representative Gowdy, the South Carolina Republican who chairs the House Oversight Committee, ( assured us) that everything was peachy with the FBI — no way, no how did the bureau “spy” on the Trump campaign when it deployed an “informant” to pry information from Trump-campaign officials. As (Mollie Hemingway) pointed out at the time, Gowdy had not seen relevant documents the FBI and Justice Department have been withholding from Congress — in fact, his...

Watching who stands with honor and who is scrambling in shame in Washington D. C. is a bestseller. Finally the citizens of America are going to know who has stood behind them, and who sold their souls and sold them out for a piece of the missing trillions from past administrations.

    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...

    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...

    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...
