Trey Gowdy just left everyone speechless.
Trump supporters are used to seeing Trey Gowdy on TV defending the President.
But Trey Gowdy made one confession to Fox News about Trump that no one saw coming.
The collapse of the Russian collusion hoax was complete after the Department of Justice filed a motion in court to drop all charges against former National Security Advisor Lt. General Michael Flynn.
Department of Justice court filings showed the FBI tried to frame Flynn as part of a political vendetta against Donald Trump.
But at the time the investigation was going on, not every Republican saw it that way.
Trey Gowdy appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program where Carlson confronted Gowdy with his past comments about the FBI’s comments in the Russia investigation.
Carlson played a clip of Gowdy from a 2018 Fox News interview where Gowdy stated, “I am more convinced 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 responded that he was wrong and that he never should have trusted FBI leadership to tell him the truth.
The former South Carolina Congressman admitted that once he did his own leg work on the Russia probe he quickly discovered the FBI’s corrupt intentions.
“I went to the Department of Justice. I sat there for four hours. That is when I saw that Peter Strzok actually initiated and approved Crossfire Hurricane. That is when I saw the exculpatory information on George Papadopoulos. That is when I saw for the very first time that it was the Trump campaign mentioned in that predicate document,” Gowdy told Carlson.
“So yes, my mistake was relying on the word of the FBI and the DOJ and not insisting on the documents. Luckily it took me three weeks to correct that mistake,” Gowdy added.
Many Republicans’ nature is to defer to law enforcement and the FBI.
Contrary to the Fake News Media spin, it was not Donald Trump’s attacks on the FBI that destroyed faith in this institution.
It was the FBI’s malicious and deceitful conduct that accomplished that.
