UNCHAINED: Gowdy SCORCHES Comey for the World to See
Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) isn't holding anything back anymore.
While going over new developments from Inspector General Michael Horowitz's explosive report, an exasperated Gowdy launched a fiery condemnation of the disgraced ex-FBI chief and specific agents under his control. (Fox News)
Referring to IG findings that Comey defied his superiors in his handling of the Clinton email case, Gowdy accused the ex-director of essentially operating by his own rules.
"We see Jim Comey and Jim Comey alone deciding which DOJ policies to follow and which to ignore," he said.
Gowdy accused Comey of watering down his initial statement on the investigation's findings and making other decisions on his own. While Comey has suggested he acted unilaterally out of concern for the Justice Department's handling of the case, Gowdy questioned why he didn't seek a special counsel -- as he indirectly did regarding concerns about the Trump administration.
“Instead, he appointed himself FBI director, attorney general, special counsel, lead investigator and the general arbiter of what is good and right in the world according to him,” Gowdy said.
Gowdy added that the IG report should "conjure anger, disappointment, and sadness in anyone who reads it."
Yesterday, Mr. Horowitz confirmed to the Senate that his office is investigating Comey for possibly mishandling classified information during the Russia investigation.
