Gowdy on 'Dead' FBI Email Probe: 'Real Jury' Will Weigh In on Election Day
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), went after FBI Director James Comey at a House hearing yesterday, expressing his disappointment with the way the Hillary Clinton email investigation was carried out.
Cheryl Mills, a top aide to Hillary Clinton who also acts as her lawyer, received an immunity deal from the Department of Justice and was also allowed to sit in on the FBI's interview with Clinton.
Gowdy told Comey that he doesn't understand how the FBI could hand out five immunity deals with no prosecutions and also allow Mills, a potential target of the investigation, to sit in on the interview with Clinton.
"That is not the FBI I used to work with," said Gowdy.
Comey said he hopes Gowdy will, after the "political craziness" is over, look back and reconsider, adding "this is the FBI you know and love" and that the investigation was done "by pros in the right way."
This morning on America's Newsroom, we heard from Gowdy, who said the five immunity agreements were all "very troubling." He questioned how no one could be prosecuted for sending or receiving classified information by email or for destroying federal records.
"Out of all of this. [After] five immunity agreements and a really unusual investigation about national security matters, with hundreds of classified emails, not one single person is going to face a legal consequence," he explained.
Gowdy agreed with Bill Hemmer's statement that the case is basically "dead in the water." But the House Benghazi Committee chairman said the final decision will be made on Election Day by the American people.
"On November 8th, the real jury gets to weigh in. And if they think this Department of Justice has been politicized, they are welcome to replace it with another Department of Justice."
