Wednesday on CNN’s “Outfront,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) reacted criticism from House Intelligence Committee ranking Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) that Gowdy acted as White House adviser Jared Kushner’s “second lawyer” during Kushner’s appearance before a closed session of the committee.
Gowdy dismissed Schiff’s remarks and took a shot at Schiff by saying the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia probe has been “very good” for Schiff’s future political ambitions.
“The Democrats ran out of good questions, but they didn’t run out of questions,” he said. “So I think that’s Adam’s frustration that Jared Kushner did not tell him what he wanted to hear from a political ambition standpoint.”
“This investigation has been very good for the Adam Schiff for Senate campaign,” he added. “But yesterday was not good for him.”
