Rep. Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) slammed former FBI director James Comey on Thursday for “making up his mind” not to charge Hillary Clinton before the investigation into her handling of classified information was complete.
Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) and Judiciary subcommittee chairman Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) sent a letter to current FBI director Chris Wray in late August in order to address Comey’s actions and collect additional information. The Senate Judiciary Committee had learned, through transcripts of interviews with top Comey aides, that the FBI director drafted a memo exonerating the former secretary of state before the FBI interviewed Clinton and other key witnesses as part of the investigation. The senators called Comey’s actions “no way to run an investigation.”
Fox News host Bill Hemmer asked Gowdy Thursday whether he agreed with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ Tuesday comments, where she said Comey’s actions “were improper and likely could have been illegal.”
“Well Bill, if it’s that clean and clear, I’m sure she’s referred it to the Department of Justice. After all, President Trump handpicked Jeff Sessions to be his attorney general, so if the evidence is as clear as the press secretary says it is, I’m sure that matter is already in Jeff Sessions’ office,” Gowdy said.
