Where has Rep. Trey Gowdy been all our lives? The Republican has burst onto the political scene as of late and with his latest burn of Democrat and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer – he’s sure to win even more fans…and votes!
Responding to Schumer’s call for House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif) to be fired after he went to the media over allegations Obama tapped Trump Tower during the election. Gowdy said:
“I just love it when Senator Schumer gives Republicans advice on what we ought to do,” Gowdy said. “Devin is doing exactly what the chairman is [supposed] to do.”
Schumer made his request because Nunes failed to notify the rest of his committee that he would be making the trip to his “source” on the White House grounds, and that he may have had new information on the case.
“I wish Senator Schumer and some of the other Democrats would be interested in the authenticity and reliability of the underlying data [rather than] the means by which it was acquired,” Gowdy said.
He remarked the he wouldn’t care whether Nunes had to privately go to “the White House or Waffle House” to continue his investigation securely.
He said Congress is at a “strange place” if the intelligence committee chairman can be criticized for updating the president on classified matters.
“We’re not going to take advice from Chuck Schumer on who our chairman should be,” he said.
Boom! God Bless you Trey Gowdy – it’s about time someone brought Chuck back down to earth!
