Gowdy on Trump Spy Claims: ‘FBI Did Exactly’ What We’d Want Them To Do and What Trump Wanted Them To Do

On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) stated that after the briefing regarding informants and the Trump campaign, he is “even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got, and that it has nothing to do with Donald Trump.”

Gowdy said, “What should have him [President Trump] heartened is the fact that Chris Wray, Rod Rosenstein, and all the senior folks at DOJ now were all Trump appointees. So, here’s what’s fair to ask: What did the FBI do? When did they do it? What was the factual predicate upon which they took whatever actions they took, and against whom were they directed? But, remember, Martha, it was President Trump himself who said, number one, I didn’t collude with Russia, but if anyone connected with my campaign did, I want the FBI to find that out. It looks to me like the FBI was doing what President Trump said I want you to do, find it out. He’s not the target.”

Gowdy added, “Chris Wray and Rod Rosenstein have at least made it clear to us, Donald Trump was never the target of the investigation. He’s not the current target of the investigation. Now, keep in mind, that can all change depending on what a witness says.”

He further stated, “I am even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got, and that it has nothing to do with Donald Trump.”
