Gowdy on Harry Reid's Statement: "I Didn't Know Mormons Use Drugs"

|

Rep. Trey Gowdy responds to Sen. Harry Reid's claim that FBI Director Comey's decision to re-open the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server was politically motivated.

BRET BAIER, FOX NEWS: Here is Harry Reid's letter tonight to Jim Comey: 'Your actions have demonstrated a disturbing double standard for the treatment of sensitive investigation and what appears to be a clear intent to aid one political party ore another. I'm writing to inform you that my office has determined these actions may violate the Hatch Act, which bars FBI officials from using their official authority to influence an election. Through your partisan actions,' this is Harry Reid, 'you may have broken the law. The double standard established by your actions is clear.'

Your reaction, Congressman?

REP. TREY GOWDY: Thank God he's leaving, is my initial reaction. My second reaction is: I did not know Mormons used drugs. And anyone who is capable of sending out that press release has to be under the influence of something.

The person responsible for this fact pattern is Secretary Clinton.

Jim Comey did not tell her to use her private server. He did not say to mislead the public about whether or not you turned over all of your work emails. And he certainly didn't say, Secretary Clinton, why don't you say you neither sent nor received classified information. So, look, Senator Reid is a political hack and Jim Comey is a law enforcement officer.

He's not a Republican or a Democrat. I've had my differences with him in the past, but he's not a political hack like Senator Reid is.
