(National Sentinel)Â Leaks: Retiring GOP congressman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina says he’s happy to sit down for a classified briefing on “Russian collusion” during the 2016 presidential election with Democrats.
Provided they shut their mouths and keep their minds open — two requests that aren’t likely to be granted.
During an interview withÂ Fox News‘ Dana Perino, Gowdy noted that thus far Democrats in the House have only shown hyper-partisanship and enmity towards President Donald Trump, They’ve also had no interest in getting to the bottom of the Russian collusion hoax — because, of course, doing so takes away a key political weapon they’ve been using to hammer the president.
So while he is okay sitting down with Dems for this upcoming classified briefing, he doesn’t sound as though he expects much to change.
Fox News Insider reported:
House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy discussed the upcoming highly sensitive meeting about the Russia investigation — a meeting involving Gowdy and President Trump, among others.
Thus far, Gowdy and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes of California are the only members of Congress set to join FBI Director Chris Wray, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and Justice Department official Edward O’Callaghan.
Top Democratic leaders Sen. Charles Schumer of New York and Nancy Pelosi of California wrote a letter to Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, asking them to include more members of Congress, including their fellow Democrats.
“I don’t care who comes,” Gowdy said. “The only thing I’d ask [is] if you show up, show up with an open mind and closed lips.”
“In other words, don’t leak like a sieve when we get through the meeting,” he said.
As for Democrats’ state of mind, Gowdy noted that as many as 60 House members have already supported the impeachment of Trump “before a single finding” of fact has been announced by special counsel Robert Mueller, whose investigation goes on and on and on…
“Those are folks that don’t have an open mind,” he said, lumping James Comey, Loretta Lynch, James Clapper, John Brennan and other former Obama administration officials in that group.
Obviously, Gowdy is just maintaining congressional decorum. We don’t believe for a second that he thinks perpetually triggered and angry Democrats are ever going to have an ‘open mind’ when it comes to POTUS Trump.
