Rep. Trey Gowdy is not playing the left’s game.
On Wednesday, the popular South Carolina representative said that Democrats who are demanding hearings to investigate President Trump’s former national security advisor Michael Flynn are “politically motivated.”
He said they aren’t interested in the truth as to what happened before he resigned.
On Fox News, Bill Hemmer asked Gowdy to comment on a statement that came from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell regarding Russia’s interference in U.S. electoral system last year.
“We know they were messing around with it. We don’t think they have any impact on the outcome but, obviously, we are not going to ignore something like that,” McConnell stated in an MSNBC interview.
Gowdy, the renowned prosecutor, made clear that the more evidence and information Congress has, the the better an investigation they will have. However, he calling out some of his Democratic colleagues that are trying to inject politics into the matter.
“One of my Democratic colleagues said he wants public hearings, public hearings on classified information,” Gowdy said. “Whenever someone says they want public hearings about a classified matter, you just know they’re not serious.”
“So Congress is capable of investigating. In fact, we did it in the committee I was on. 99 out of our 100 interviews were done in private,” he continued.
“The Democrats want this to be a public story. They’re much more interested in the politics of it than they are actually finding out what happened,” Gowdy added.
