Gowdy On New Strzok-Page Texts About Hillary Clinton: "The Fix Was In"


FOX NEWS: House Oversight Committee chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) on the missing texts the Department of Justice has recovered between anti-Trump FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, the need for safeguards and FBI scrutiny and the call to release the memo on alleged FISA surveillance abuses.

REP. TREY GOWDY (R-SC), HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE: If you read all the texts it's clear that they did not want her charged. They wanted her to be the president of the United States. They really, really didn't want Donald Trump to be the president of the United States and concede throughout these texts they did things differently in this investigation from any other investigation that they were a part of.

TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS: What I don't understand is even if you're watching this at home and you think I wanted Hillary to win too and I don't like Donald Trump too, shouldn't you be a little concerned, maybe actually terrified that FBI agents conducting a criminal investigation into a politician were worried about the political element of the investigation? That's not supposed to happen, is it?

GOWDY: You may remember, as I do, Jim Comey telling us that the FBI doesn't give a whit about politics. He loved to tell us how apolitical the Bureau was and here we have these texts. Of course, our friends on the left say these are texts between two lovers.

Yes, that's right. You're more likely to tell the truth when you don't think anybody else is watching. This I think is the unvarnished truth of how they viewed her, him and the investigation and how they wanted it to turn out.

Keep in mind, Tucker, all of this is done ever before she was interviewed. So the fix was in. Unfortunately, before they even interviewed the target of the investigation.
