Gowdy on DOJ Probe: Republicans Need to Say Look At What Already Exists, Not What's Coming

|

Former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said it will be a "freak show" when former special Robert Mueller testifies to Congress later in July. In an interview Monday night with FNC's Sean Hannity, Gowdy predicted Mueller really doesn't want to come to testify because he won't deviate from the report, that there will be incendiary questions from the left, and that people won't learn anything that you don't already know.

"His out on when did you go there was no collusion, when we interview the last witness. So Mueller does not want to come. He does not want to come because he does not want to deviate from his report. What you're going to get our these incendiary questions about obstruction and impeachment. You are not going to learn anything that you don't already know.





Gowdy said Republicans shouldn't have to promise any future evidence because what exists already delivers the response "something ain't right."

"Republicans have got to get better at not always promising what's getting ready to come. Look at already exists," Gowdy said Monday. "Look at what Horowitz found! Strzok and Page with a historic level of bias. You have a dossier that was used in a court pleading that was not verified. You have Steele, who was defrocked as a source but yet continue to provide information to as the world's premier law enforcement agency, and you've got a DOJ senior official in Bruce Ohr who is in the chain of evidence from Fusion GPS to the DOJ. We shouldn't have to promise anything else! That ought to be enough for my fellow citizens to say, you know what, something ain't right!"

SEAN HANNITY, FOX NEWS HOST: Who authored the Mueller report, when did he know that there was no collusion? How is that he had time to the taxicab a danger prosecutor which is prosecutorial discretion is used every day. But he had time for taxicab medallions, FARA abuse, loan applications and taxes, how did he not have time for a dirty dossier? I would like that question answered, from Russia.

GOWDY: I think what is going to say on that, John Ratcliffe and I were discussing it over the weekend, I think what he's going to say, that is not what Rod Rosenstein asked me to do. I did what the acting DOJ age he asked me to do, which is look at -- go back to Rod's memo. What did Russia do in 2016? And then a specific reference to the Trump campaign. I think that is Mueller's out. His out on when did you go there was no collusion, is going to be when we interview the last witness.

So Mueller does not want to come. He does not want to come because he does not want to deviate from his report. What you're going to get are these incendiary questions about obstruction and impeachment. You are not going to learn anything that you don't already know. It's just going to be great for people--

HANNITY: Well, I think he's going to have a hard time answering how he had one candidate paid for Russian lies and it became the basis of a FISA warrant. How does not become an influence on the 2016 election? But taxicab medallions dead? I would like an answer to that question.

GOWDY: I help somebody can get that asked and answered in 5 minutes. 5 minutes is not much to unlock the mysteries of the world.

HANNITY: Bob Mueller's nine and a half minutes was not exactly stellar. I think the Attorney General graciously bailed him out with a joint statement. That is a guess on my part.

GOWDY: I hope I'm wrong. I just don't think this is going to help anybody figure out what's been going on last three smart days.

HANNITY: I think you're pretty smart guy.

GOWDY: I think do think Horowitz and Durham well but I don't think Mueller is.
