Former FBI Director James Comey’s recent testimony before Congress ignited a new firestorm of criticism over the Deep State’s efforts to remove Donald Trump from office.
Comey evaded questions and tried to cover up his role in this terrible crime.
But he didn’t get away with it because Trey Gowdy shut him down with just one tweet.
Gowdy and Comey began sparring during Comey’s testimony.
The South Carolina Republican could not wring straight answers out of Comey regarding the FBI’s use of the fake news Christopher Steele dossier in the Russia investigation.
Comey repeatedly claimed he couldn’t remember details about the FBI’s relationship with the Steele and the process for verifying the outrageous allegations made in the Trump-Russia dossier.
Gowdy went on Martha MacCallum’s Fox News show and ripped Comey for being an “amnesiac with incredible hubris.”
This stinging rebuke triggered Comey.
The former FBI Director presents himself as an incorruptible lawman whose moral compass always points north.
Comey could not stand having his carefully crafted public persona punctured by reality.
The disgraced former FBI Director fired off a tweet linking to an article about Gowdy’s Fox News appearance and whined “And I was worried this wouldn’t be a dignified, open-minded search for the truth.”

That did not sit well with Gowdy.
Gowdy clapped back by not only questioning Comey’s memory, but his competency in running the FBI.
“Director Comey, I was disappointed in what you didn’t remember, but even more disappointed in what you never knew. I’ll see you on Monday,” Gowdy tweeted.
Gowdy alluded to the fact that Republicans called Comey back for a second closed-door interview.
Democrats take over the House of Representatives in 16 days and Nancy Pelosi and her lieutenants will kill any investigations into the FBI’s corrupt anti-Trump bias.
The left knows that continuing the investigation into how the Obama administration colluded with the FBI to frame Trump for working with the Russians will take the wind out of the sails of the Mueller investigation.
So, Republicans are scrambling to explore every avenue of investigation before they are forced to surrender their majority.
Many Republicans believe Comey was not forthcoming in his original testimony.
They believe he relied on a crutch of a supposedly faulty memory in order to avoid having to answer questions in the final days of the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.
Republicans still run the Senate, but their rules for issuing subpoenas require Democrat participation.
House Republicans changed the rules to allow the majority to issue subpoenas without any input from the minority.
Comey knows that Republicans in the Senate are highly skeptical of the FBI’s conduct in the 2016 election, but that they are also handcuffed by the need for Democrat buy-in on subpoenaing witnesses in order to continue the investigation.
House Republicans’ interview with Comey is really the last best shot to pin him down on the lawless and rogue behavior he oversaw.
