In an interview last night on Fox News, South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy inferred there may be an untold story behind then-FBI Director James Comey’s decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information.
Although Gowdy’s comments were often vague, he did confirm comments made by host Martha McCallum.
Per the Daily Caller:
On Fox News’ “The Story,” Gowdy cryptically told host Martha McCallum that he believes “history will be much kinder to Jim Comey in that July press conference than the Democrats were.”
“Jim Comey had access to additional information that I am convinced left him with no other choice but to make the decision he made in July,” Gowdy said.
Gowdy then seemingly confirmed a claim of “entanglements between the Clintons and perhaps the Justice Department”:
“Trust me when I tell you this, Martha — I know what it was and I have been a critic of James Comey in the past. But he made the only decision he could have made with respect to appropriating that decision away from the Department of Justice and making the decision himself.”
“I only take away from that that you are suggesting that there were more entanglements between the Clintons and perhaps the Justice Department than everyone understands,” McCallum guessed.
“You’re very perceptive,” Gowdy confirmed.
