Trey Gowdy Ends Russia Probe with ONE QUESTION [VIDEO]
Judge Roy Bean said, “To tittle-tattle is like playing poker, you win from time to time but in the end are ensnared at your own game.”
That’s what’s happening to the Democrats. They tittle-tattled with the Russian story, and now it’s about to blow up in their faces.
I saw a recent poll that reported 70 percent of people think the Russia probe is a waste of time. This doesn’t bode well for Democrats, who have been selling the Russia lie for over a year now.
While I appeared on Outnumbered, one of the ladies mentioned that a Democrat congresswoman said that practically nobody cares about the Russian story. Her revelation certainly validates the polling.
I noted a shift from the Russian story to obstruction a couple of weeks ago. The irony there is if there is nothing connecting Trump to the Russians, what exactly was he obstructing?
But what may be the most telling came in the testimony of Jeh Johnson. Trey Gowdy asked the question that should shut down this investigation.
How does one not turn over all the evidence in an investigation you started?
Then-FBI Director Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee. His testimony centered around Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.
In his testimony Comey informed the committee that the FBI, the group responsible for the investigation was denied the servers. Here is how The Hill reported things at the time:
The FBI requested direct access to the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) hacked computer servers but was denied, Director James Comey told lawmakers on Tuesday.
The bureau made “multiple requests at different levels,” according to Comey, but ultimately struck an agreement with the DNC that a “highly respected private company” would get access and share what it found with investigators.
“We’d always prefer to have access hands-on ourselves if that’s possible,” Comey said, noting that he didn’t know why the DNC rebuffed the FBI’s request.
Although it was reported that the DNC and the bureau had been quibbling in news reports over whether the FBI asked to examine its servers directly, so what was the truth.
Only days earlier, BuzzFeed reported that the FBI had never even requested the servers.
The FBI never examined the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) computer servers during its investigation into Russian attempts to interfere in the presidential election
“The DNC had several meetings with representatives of the FBI’s Cyber Division and its Washington (D.C.) Field Office, the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, and U.S. Attorney’s Offices, and it responded to a variety of requests for cooperation, but the FBI never requested access to the DNC’s computer servers,” DNC deputy communications director Eric Walker told BuzzFeed in an email.
Let’s hope that Special Counsel Mueller asks similar questions of Jeh Johnson and others.
