Soon to be retired South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy (who is a monumental pitbull both inside and outside the court) doesn’t take someone going after his jugular lightly. Especially when that someone is former FBI Director James Comey. Gowdy laid into Comey but good after Comey tweeted a photo of a story written about Gowdy’s comments concerning Comey in an interview with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum.
Comey’s point was that his hearing should have been public. They weren’t fair to him… boo hoo! Where of course he could have hidden behind certain laws. He was looking for vindication and got trout-smacked by Gowdy instead. Comey sent out a tweet of a screenshot of a story on The Daily Caller entitled, “Amnesiac With Incredible Hubris’ — Gowdy Tears Into Former FBI Director Jim Comey.” He then put forth: “And I was worried this [wouldn’t] be a dignified, open-minded search for the truth.” What a crooked jerk.
Comey had severe amnesia during the hearing. In other words, he lied his head off and Gowdy constantly pointed it out. The article sent out was about Gowdy ripping Comey a new one over his so-called lack of memory. Gowdy quoted Comey and commented, “Director Comey, I was disappointed in what you didn’t remember, but even more disappointed in what you never knew. I’ll see you on Monday.” Touche.
Comey appeared in front of the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform Committees last week in a closed-door hearing. Gowdy’s jab at Comey comes after the former director said, “I don’t know” or “I can’t recall” nearly 250 times during the hearing.
The former director initially wanted to appear publicly but gave up after a brief legal battle.
The committees are investigating the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations.
Comey does not have any sense or the wherewithal to know when to quit and slink away. He made an outright fool of himself even after Gowdy gave him a knockout blow. Pathetic.
If you are going to take on a legalistic giant like Trey Gowdy, you better know your stuff and be ready to dance. Comey isn’t even ready to walk into a room… any room. Just say goodnight Sally.
