Sebastian Gorka Blasts Trey Gowdy as ‘Grandstanding Fake’

Published

A national security strategist and former strategist for President Donald J. Trump blasted Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) over Gowdy’s statements to the media regarding Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland tomorrow.

“This why I can’t take Gowdy seriously,” Gorka tweeted. “The ‘great prosecutor’ had Hillary testify on Benghazi & with what result? ZIP. Now his advice 2 [President Trump] is ask former KGB colonel Putin where he can “pick up” his GRU colleagues? What a grandstanding FAKE.”

Gorka has a point. Gowdy, once known for his sharp tongue and pointed questions during the House Select Committee on Benghazi hearings, has accomplished little in his time as a Congressman.

“I would ask the president to give some serious consideration, your first request of Vladimir Putin needs to be, ‘Tell us which airport we can pick up the 25 Russians that tried to interfere with the fundamentals of our democracy,'” Gowdy told Margaret Brennan on “Face the Nation” on Sunday.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein indicted 12 Russians on Friday over alleged “hacking” of the DNC during the 2016 campaign cycle.

But the fact remains: More than 700 days have passed since the “Russian collusion” narrative was first injected into the mainstream, and not one iota of evidence exists suggesting that Trump had anything to do with Russian meddling in the election.

Still, Gowdy wants to talk tough.

“If you really claim that you had nothing to do with it, then you should be as shocked as we were that your military being used to impact our election, tell us where your going to extradite those folks because an American grand jury indicted them for undermining our democracy.”

Of course, none of that has been proven either. An indictment is not an indication of guilt. And lest we forget, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller actually indicted a Russian company that does not exist as part of his partisan witch hunt.

Yet Gowdy, a prosecutor who should indeed be a bit skeptical, seems to be taking Mueller at his word and inferring guilt from an indictment.

Gowdy talked tough at the open hearing of disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok last week regarding pre-election bias in the nation’s highest law enforcement agency. Still, frustrated Americans have nothing to show for it.

He let Lisa Page, Strzok’s lover and confidante, also a disgraced FBI agent, ignore a congressional subpoena to appear before Congress on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, former Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton never faced any consequences for perjuring herself on live television during the very Benghazi hearings over which Gowdy presided, and has never been seriously investigated for any of the myriad of other misdeeds related to her scam charity, The Clinton Global Initiative.

Just another day in the swamp.

Second Former Andrew Cuomo Aide Accuses Disgraced Governor of Sexual Harassment

Cuomo has refused to resign.

A second former aide has accused beleaguered New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment, speaking the New York Times on Saturday.

Charlotte Bennett served as an executive assistant and health policy adviser in the Governor’s office until November of last year, and recounted a series of incidents where she was propositioned about her sex life and the governor’s preferences.

Ms. Bennett, 25, said the most unsettling episode occurred on June 5, when she was alone with Mr. Cuomo in his State Capitol office. In a series of interviews this week, she said the governor had asked her numerous questions about her personal life, including whether she thought age made a difference in romantic relationships, and had said that he was open to relationships with women in their 20s — comments she interpreted as clear overtures to a sexual relationship.”

Cuomo also allegedly questioned Bennett on her opinions of non-monogamous relationships.

I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” Bennett said. “And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.

Bennett is the second former Cuomo staffer to come public with accounts of sexual harassment. Lindsey Boylan, an ex-Cuomo aide who had previously spoken of toxicity in the establishment Democrat’s office. Boylan alleges that Cuomo asked her to play strip poker on a plane, that his underlings communicated he had a “crush” on her, and that the Governor would frequently touch her back and her arms.

Cuomo is currently facing a possible impeachment or censure from the New York legislature for his cover-up of the state’s disastrous nursing home scandal, in which the deaths of thousands of senior citizens were covered up in order to deflect an investigation from the Department of Justice. Leading Democrats such as Ron Kim have called for his resignation, and it may prove the new sexual harassment allegations could be the final straw.
