SC Rep. Trey Gowdy has long been a ferocious voice when someone needed to be put in their place or called out for their swamp-like nonsense. While Gowdy has been somewhat quiet the past few months, especially on the heels of his announcement that he’ll be retiring from Congress… we’re here to say HE’S BACK.
Gowdy took the gloves off Friday over the brewing situation surrounding the release of disgraced former FBI director Jim Comey’s new book, which is apparently full of misinformation and Trump-bashing.
Washington Examiner reports:
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said Friday former FBI Director James Comey has managed to politicize his former office by writing a book trashing President Trump, even though he had talked to Gowdy about the importance of keeping the FBI neutral.
“I can’t think of anyone who’s done a better job of politicizing the FBI than he has in the last 36 to 48 hours, by talking about tanning bed goggles and the length of a tie,” Gowdy said on Fox News. “That is beneath the dignity of the offices that he held.”
Among other things, Comey’s book mocks Trump’s physical appearance by saying he had “bright white half-moons” that he thought came from tanning goggles.
“I’m really disappointed, whether or not the intelligence community vetted this book,” Gowdy said. “I hope he let them do it so he’s not disseminating classified information. My guess is he did.”
“But the writing of the book in general and then some of the things that he’s talking about are just frankly beneath the dignity of some really important offices he once held,” he said.
