Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, isn’t running for re-election….
He’s the guy who went after Hillary Clinton and lost after Clinton out wore him during a 11 hour Bengahzi hearing….
His fellow Republicans have shut down their sham ‘probe’ of the 2016 Trump/Russian connections with line that nothing happened….(Democrats will release their own report)
They, not Gpwdy are gonna look stupid when the Robert Mueller throwdown arrives….
But led by Trump lack Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Ca)
The House Republicans in the committee don’t really care about stating the obvious….
(Just about EVERYONE KNOWS the Russians helped Trump get his win despite losing the popular vote by MILLIONS)
Of course come January?
If the Democrats take over the US House?
Things ARE gonna be much different on this front….
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, wrote in a statement Tuesday that the committee’s probe of Russian election meddling made clear “Russia had disdain for Secretary Clinton and was motivated in whole or in part by a desire to harm her candidacy or undermine her Presidency had she prevailed.”
That statement, flagged by CNBC, seems to be at odds with the one-page summary of committee Republicans’ draft report on the probe released by Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX) Monday. That document said in part that the committee had concurred with the intelligence community’s January 2017 assessment of Russian meddling “except with respect to Putin’s supposed preference for candidate Trump.”
Conaway announced Monday that the committee had completed the information-gathering portion of its investigation and would share a draft report with Democrats Tuesday. Democrats on the committee, led by Ranking Member Adam Schiff (D-CA), have long complained of Republicans’ handling of the probe.
Schiff said in an interview Tuesday that Democrats will release a minority report on Russian election meddling, including both evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and details on “the investigative steps that were never taken to answer further questions about the Russians and the Trump campaign’s conduct.”…
