Trey Gowdy is a straight shooter – he has criticized Trump when POTUS deserved it and he has exposed Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama when the situation demanded it.
Now, the former House Oversight Committee Chairman just found another skeleton in Obama’s closet after Barack ripped Trump and Bill Barr.
He called Obama’s attack on Trump and Barr “an amazing statement” after Barack claimed the “rule of law is at risk” over the Flynn decision.
“Where is Obama’s respect for the rule of law for the crime that Michael Flynn was the victim of?” Gowdy told Fox News.
“Remember, he was unmasked by somebody in Obama’s administration and then it was leaked, that is a 10-year felony, to disseminate classified information,” he added.
“Michael Flynn was a victim of that crime.”
“President Obama himself pardoned people for making false statements to the government,” Gowdy said dragging out a major skeleton from Obama’s closet.
“He picked Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz that was an Obama pick.”Michael Horowitz found fault after fault after fault with the FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] program and former FBI Director Jim Comey and [former FBI Deputy Director Andy McCabe, so I am delighted to hear President Obama’s newfound interest and respect for the rule of law,” Gowdy added.
“I just wish he would apply it equally to Republicans and Democrats.”
“The FBI used a dossier that was bought and paid for by your political party without vetting a single factual allegation in that dossier,” he added.
“You put it in front of a federal judge, where is your concern for respect for the rule of law as it relates to Carter Page and what happened to him?”
“The judge can sit there and not know whether or not he’s going to grant that motion to dismiss. Good luck prosecuting the case, judge.”
“You got to have a prosecutor to prosecute the case, so if the DOJ is not moving forward on Michael Flynn, I don’t think the judge is going to do it himself,” Gowdy said.
