Gowdy: New Strzok-Page Texts Show 'Manifest Bias' Against Trump
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said newly recovered text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page show "manifest bias" for Hillary Clinton and against President Trump.
In the new texts, Strzok and Page express concern about being too tough on Hillary Clinton during the bureau’s investigation into her email practices because she might hold it against them as president.
"It's clear that they did not want her charged, they wanted her to be the president of the United States, they really, really didn't want Donald Trump to be the president of the United States, and they concede throughout these texts that they did things in this investigation differently from any other investigation that they were part of," Gowdy said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight."
He said the texts give the "unvarnished truth" of how Strzok and Page viewed Trump, Clinton, the email investigation and how they wanted it to turn out.
"All of this was done before [Clinton] was even interviewed. The fix was in, unfortunately before they even interviewed the target of the investigation," Gowdy said.
He added he doesn't understand why those on the left can't concede that Strzok and Page were biased and should not have been involved in politically charged cases like the Clinton email investigation or Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.
"I don't know why the left is straining to minimize the manifest bias that was exhibited by these agents," Gowdy said. "I don't get it."
