If you thought the Hillary email saga was done and dusted, think again. Conservative bulldog and head of the House Oversight Committee, Trey Gowdy, is back on the case, as new details have emerged about former FBI Director James Comey and his actions during the Clinton investigation.
As reported at Fox News, after the latest document dump by the FBI, Gowdy is determined to have the disgraced Comey testify before Congress once more. That’s because once again, the evidence reveals that Comey was either incompetent or intentionally negligent in his duty to properly investigate Hillary.
The documents show that Comey began drafting a letter on the email investigation months before the FBI was done interviewing people and combing through evidence. Which means he was intent on pardoning Clinton from the start, regardless of what the evidence said.
Gowdy told Fox News’ Bret Baier on “Special Report” Tuesday night that “for a number of reasons” Comey should return to Capitol Hill and face up to these new details, and that the Oversight Committee should comb through the available evidence once more.
“Whenever somebody decides to charge someone, there are lots of layers of scrutiny. When you decide not to charge someone, there aren’t that many layers of scrutiny but there ought to be at least a couple,” Gowdy said.
“The media should do it but also Congress should look at this decision not to charge and whether or not it was made before you interviewed two dozen witnesses, including the target of the investigation, yeah we need to talk to him again.”
Gowdy thinks that the timeline of events as described by Comey simply doesn’t add up. During his congressional testimony in June, Comey referred to the insanely suspect tarmac between AG Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton as the event that encouraged him to publicly announce his findings on the case.
However, he started on Clinton’s letter of exoneration a month and a half prior.
“His ostensible reason for taking that decision away from the Department of Justice was that meeting on the tarmac but yet a month and a half earlier he is memorializing a decision he’s already made so the chronology does not add up,” Gowdy said. “His answers have been all over the map.”
Gowdy also told Baier that he wants to speak to Comey’s former colleagues, to see if their stories match up to their boss’. Needless to say, this case has always reeked of blatant corruption. Everyone knows it, but nothing has been done about it. We’re just expected to accept what Hillary did and how our nation’s most famous domestic agency bungled the subsequent investigation into her crimes.
Like Gowdy, none of us should be satisfied with how this all played out. Someone has to be held accountable, and those best fit to take responsibility are those that are guilty in the first place.
