Judge Jeanine: Gowdy's Statement on Trump 'Spy' Claims Is 'Ridiculous'
Judge Jeanine Pirro said she is fired up, angry and confused by Rep. Trey Gowdy's (R-S.C.) statement that the FBI acted properly in its use of an informant in the Trump campaign to root out possible Russian meddling in the 2016 race.
“I am even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got,” Gowdy said on “The Story” last week, adding that the move had “nothing to do with Donald Trump.”
Pirro said Gowdy, the chairman of the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee, said she's shocked by Gowdy's remarks, calling him one of the few people in Washington, D.C., who has the intelligence, expertise and ability to see through the "nonsense" -- and possible "illegality" -- going on at the FBI and Justice Department.
“No. 1, Trey Gowdy knows he’s not supposed to confirm or deny 'SpyGate,'" Pirro said. "No. 2, saying that the placing of a spy, or a confidential human source, as the big shots call it, in the Trump campaign has nothing to do with Donald Trump is ridiculous.”
Instead of her typical opening statement, Pirro spoke to several of Gowdy's closest colleagues: Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) about the FBI's use of an informant -- or "spy" -- in the Trump campaign.
