President Trump and millions of Americans believe Comey committed multiple crimes in overseeing the FBI’s spying on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
And now Trey Gowdy said the three words that struck fear in James Comey’s heart.
Department of Justice Inspector Michael Horowitz’s report on the FBI’s abuse of power in the FISA process landed like a nuclear bomb in Washington.
Horowitz detailed 17 errors and omissions in the FBI’s FISA warrant applications to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
The report outlined how the FBI fabricated evidence and deceived the FISA court judge by omitting exculpatory evidence about Page.
Previously, former FBI Director James Comey defended the FBI’s conduct in the Russian collusion investigation.
“Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace confronted Comey about Comey’s false statements.
Comey stunned viewers by confessing that he was wrong and Horowitz was right.
“He is right, I was wrong,” Comey told Wallace. “I was overconfident in the procedures that the FBI and Justice have built over 20 years. I thought they were robust enough. it’s incredibly hard to get a FISA, I was overconfident in those because he’s right, there was real sloppiness.”
Former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy took on Comey’s admission of guilt in an appearance on Maria Bartiromo’s “Sunday Futures.”
Gowdy exclaimed that it was “too damn late” for Comey to trot out the ‘I’m sorry” routine.
“Sometimes, Maria, it’s better late than never, and sometimes it’s just too damn late,” Gowdy explained to Bartiromo. “And in this case, Comey is about two years too late.”
“We could have used his objectivity,” the former South Carolina Congressman continued. “We could have used him as the head of the FBI helping Republicans figure out what was happening with FISA instead of thwarting us and obstructing us.”
After Comey’s interview and Gowdy’s response, Donald Trump tweeted his contention that Comey belonged in jail.
“So now Comey’s admitting he was wrong. Wow, but he’s only doing so because he got caught red handed. He was actually caught a long time ago. So what are the consequences for his unlawful conduct. Could it be years in jail? Where are the apologies to me and others, Jim?” the President wrote.
Comey spent the days after Horowitz’s report claiming vindication and taking a victory lap.
That was all a pack of lies.
Louisiana Senator John Kennedy directly asked Inspector General Horowitz if James Comey or any other member of FBI leadership should feel “vindicated” by Horowitz’s report.
Horowitz responded that “no one” should feel vindicated by his findings.
And now with Donald Trump’s tweet and Gowdy saying the time for Comey to apologize long since passed, millions of Americans are wondering if James Comey will finally face criminal charges.
