What the Media Overlooked in Trey Gowdy Interview

Posted June 01, 2018

On CBS this morning, Gowdy said that "when the Federal Bureau of Investigation 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 out".

Rooney recalled how on several occasions, including dust-ups over the president's spying allegations and whether Russia's interference in the election helped Trump, Gowdy's willingness to buck the party line "validated to me that I wasn't crazy" for thinking the president's claims lacked evidence, Rooney said.

Trump called out Sessions by quoting Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy (S.C).

Trump directed White House counsel Don McGahn to lobby Sessions not to recuse himself, according to the Times report, and during a dinner at Mar-a-Lago apparently attempted to persuade Sessions to reverse his decision.

In an interview with The New York Times last July, the President said he would not have chosen Sessions to be his attorney general had he known Sessions would step away from matters related to the 2016 presidential campaign.

And if he was spying, it was against the Russians, not the Trump campaign, they insisted. "And they don't leave because at their core, they actually agree with a lot of the things Donald Trump is doing, even if they don't like him as a person". He said Gowdy "worked in lockstep" with other GOP lawmakers to undermine special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation of the president.

"They don't like him, they don't think he should be in the office, and they think they know better than you and me - we that voted for him", Nunberg insisted.

Trump added the word 'hoax, ' and left out the radio host's caveat that the statement was merely his opinion. "And then what law enforcement does is up to them", the former prosecutor said. "I've never met or talked to the president".
