    Trey Gowdy is an intelligent tarnished coward. He is not an America first patriot.

    He is bought. Blackmailed. Bullied. Weak. Influential but weak. Benghazi exposed him.

    Go Trump. GO

      I don’t think anyone is fooled. But we like the fact that his message is pro-Trump and is reaching viewers. That’s what matters right now.

      Tried to pay close attention to this interview ……..notice when he was asked about whether Mueller should shut down now……he is back to his black hat position of letting him complete the investigation…..I am beginning to think all of them are scared as hell of Mueller. Gowdy is trying to have his cake and eat it too…..wants to be on this side that wins….

        While I question many of Gowdy’s actions, I cannot help but agree on his demand that Mueller finish his investigation. I constantly think back to what is always claimed by the Left whenever something like this arises and the investigation is forced to prematurely close (according to their definition of “premature”). There is always this incessant whining from the Left about how the effort was prematurely stopped and there fore it was not a valid effort. Instead of demanding an end to the investigation immediately, instead think of the situation from Mueller’s perspective. The longer it goes on with trivial to nonsensical indictments released, the worse it becomes for him in that it there is little question concerning the legitimacy of the entire affair. When it does end and Mueller is the one ending it, there will be no question concerning Trump’s innocence or its degree of legitimacy thus forcing the Democrats to be silent.
        >
        The truth of the matter is that the Mueller investigation has become an embarrassment to the Left. The longer this continues, the worse it becomes. Ultimately, this investigation will become the linchpin to the Left’s destruction. By allowing an investigation conducted to the criteria of the Left, using all of the Left’s dishonesty, using the Left’s manipulation of the news, and so forth, and still finding no evidence of wrong doing, then not only is Trump vindicated by the Left, but, in future demands of investigations by the Left, this case will come up and be a powerful argument concerning the Left’s overreach. Pretty soon the Left is going to realize how this investigation is generating nothing but embarrassment for them (e.g., indicting a company for criminal activity when that company did not exist at the time the activity occurred, running away from an indictment because they have no information germane to the indictment showing it to be political grandstanding and nothing else). They too will realize that the level of embarrassment is too great and they will start calling for an end to this.

        There is a fundamental truth in war. That truth is how a narrow victory always results in the enemy coming back stronger and wanting to fight again at a later date. If, however, an enemy is overwhelmingly defeated, then that enemy will never again return to the battle field. The longer the Mueller investigation continues, the worse the defeat will be for him and the Left. By allowing this investigation to continue, it is setting up an overwhelming victory of the Republicans over Mueller and the anti-Trump forces. This overwhelming victory is required for it will eventually become the springboard from which many other Republican investigations into the Left’s wrong doing under Obama as well that performed by Hillary. The stronger the springboard, the better the follow on battles and the greater the potential victory.

      Not Gowdy, though. He’s announced his retirement from Congress, which must mean his supporters at home in S Carolina have caught onto him.

    I have heard Gowdy bark a lot but never seen a bite mark. In fact the only thing that matters from now on is bite marks. No bite marks no primary support.

    That goes for Lindsay too, you want to keep your job start biting and stop barking.
    You notice POTUS is not barking much about this, because you are about to see a lion attack – its going to be so beautiful in its ugliness!

    IMO, we just watched 13 minutes of Chris Wallace showing his a$$ and displaying just as much BIAS as Peter Strozk. And Trey Gowdy wants to ask hilldawg questions? HA! It didn’t work with the Benghazi probe with him as chairman so what makes him think he’d get any more out of her this time.

    And somebody needs to tell Trey Gowdy to get a new tie. I’m tired of looking at that purple one.

    If there were somewhere else to go, I’d leave right now. I’m sick of this schiff.

        > “… why didn’t you do that with Holder …”

        US AG Holder was held in Contempt of Congress, but since Congress has no prosecution power, all such citations are referred to the DoJ, where AG Eric Holder laughed that he would prosecute himself. Holder put the Contempt of Congress citation in his trophy case.

        Donkeycrats don’t care about the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the US Canon of Law, or the Rule of Law. They care about POWER!

        On the other hand, Republicans still care (somewhat) about honor, and I hope that Congress writes their Contempt of Congress and Impeachment bills to smear (former AG) Sessions’ “honor” [that he so cherishes], so that he may come out of mothballs and retirement to croak something to RosenSTAIN to knock it off, and CO-OPERATE with Congressional Oversight.

    Much has been said to the effect that the IG discovered Strzok’s biased texts, brought it to Mueller’s attention and Mueller elected to remove Strzok from his team. Why would it not be plausible that Strzok was removed not because of the bias, but because the IG found out about it? Mueller was forced to do something.

      Mueller full-on approved of Petey Strzok’s zeal of hating Trump, but when IG Horowitz reported it, Mueller had to act, or IG Horowitz would have told more people.

      Sounds like Horowitz is going to get a minor grilling on Tuesday, particularly with the “conclusions” of “we didn’t find that bias affected the investigation, and no procedural rules were broken”. The various facts that Purple Tie enumerated — exoneration memo, Sheryl Mills, etc. etc. etc. — just don’t match up with the overall IG softball conclusion. IMO. It’ll probably be a very long session, and if the MSM bothers to report on any of it, it might put a damper on the “nothing to see here” narrative, which TBH is irritating. I saw a 1.5 second clip of that Comey lackey Josh Campbell the other night, and I threw up in my mouth a little bit. I want to punch that kid in the freaking face, which is OK to say now because he’s no longer an FBI agent. Plus I like that Gowdy mentioned getting Comey (last seen standing, alone, in a corn field in Iowa) back in town to allow him to… uh… clarify his recollections and public testimony. That could be Must See T.V.

      Personally I agree with some others that the Hillary IG report is just a teaser for bigger bombs to drop. Need to grease the skid a little bit with Joe and Mary Blow so that nobody’s shocked with some of the bombshells that will be dropping wrt. FISA and SpyGate. At least I’m holding out hope that all will be exposed, because what we’ve seen so far by way of CTH and some other media corners the whole episode is shocking, to say the least.

      Here’s how I look at this IG report: a lot of damaging Strzok/Page stuff was exposed in the HRC IG report. He mentioned the “We’ll stop it” text like five, maybe six separate times throughout the report. And mentioned specifically that a certain (ok, obvious) interpretation of that specific text “impl[ies] a willingness to take official action to impact a presidential candidate’s electoral prospects.” OK, that would be a really big problem for the country, if true. Then proceeded to outline Strozk total B.S. explanation for the text. Why focus so much on that text exchange? That text is directly related to the HRC investigation proper, but it will be more explosive in context of FISA/SpyGate. Each of mention of the text exchange was along the lines of:

      “Even more seriously, text messages between Strzok and Page pertaining to the Russia investigation, particularly a text message from Strzok on August 8 stating “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.” in response to a Page text “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!,” are not only indicative of a biased state of mind but imply a willingness to take official action to impact a presidential candidate’s electoral prospects.”

      I don’t know, maybe reading too much into it, but there are certainly a lot of other text exchanges to additionally harp on if you want to show that political bias may have affected the Clinton investigation.

        You must lay the foundation for how big the conspiracy is for people to believe the lengths they went to in order to derail Trump. Also, you must develop all the characters in the ‘The Big Ugly’ before revealing the story line.

    IMHO the “we’ll stop him” text is the red pill here. For whatever reason, everyone just heard about it with the release of the report. There is no explaining away that text. I beleive it woke some and removed the plausible deniability for others.

    What do you guys expect? That Chris Wray, having to clean up the FBI, trash the FBI publicly? You lack a sense for reality. He could not possibly have admitted to any bias and whatever without shoting his action plan (house cleaning) in the foot. I think that behind the scene he’ll throw a tundrum at a certain staff level and take action.

    As long as Gowdy keeps allowing “intent” to be part of the discussion he is revealing himself as part of the Swamp. Everything else he says is just meaningless hot air, no matter how forceful he tries to make it sound.

    The law that Shrillary broke does not involve “intent.” It’s black or white. And there are too many well-documented convictions of people who violated these laws where “intent” was not considered.

    Gowdy is a fake.
