Gowdy Says Trump Investigation Running 'Exactly' The Right Way
Jared Kushner, the son-in-law and senior adviser to President Donald Trump, is set to meet with the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday as part of its investigation into possible Russian collusion with the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
The meeting comes after Kushner met with Senate Intelligence Committee investigators for about three hours behind closed doors on Monday. Kushner also released an 11-page statement in which he denied working with Russia to influence the campaign, instead insisting that his father-in-law simply ran a “smarter” campaign with a “better message.”
Rep Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., previewed the meeting the House will hold with Kushner on Tuesday in an exclusive interview on "The Story with Martha MacCallum," stating that the probe is being handled in “exactly the way serious investigations are supposed to be conducted.”
“You examine a witness, you cross-examine the witness, you look for corroboration or contradiction,” Gowdy said. “You don’t use anonymous sources and selective leaks and prejudge the outcome. What’s happening tomorrow, us interviewing a witness, is exactly what we should be doing. His statement is helpful, it provides a roadmap. I have additional questions both based on what he said and things that there were not said in his 11-page statement. But for those who are not used to seeing how the way investigations are supposed to be run, this is how they’re supposed to be done.”
