Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is calling out former Congressman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina for carrying water for the deep state throughout the Russian collusion hoax.
Gaetz dredged up an old clip of Gowdy defending the FBI’s handling of the General Michael Flynn case from May 2018 and posted it on Twitter.

The pro-Trump lawmaker appeared on Hannity’s Fox News program on Friday where he called out Gowdy, who has become a favorite among conservatives for shouting in Congressional hearings while never achieving any tangible results.
“I’m glad you went through Trey Gowdy’s exquisite questions in 2017 to these corrupt officials,” Gaetz told Hannity in jest.
“I guess my question, Sean, would be why was it then that in late May of 2018 that Trey Gowdy went on Martha MacCallum’s show and said that the FBI did exactly what all of our fellow Americans would have wanted them to do and it had nothing to do with Donald Trump. Both of those things have now been proven to be not true and it seems that Gowdy’s brilliant lawyering back in 2017 that we’re only able to see now proves those two statements untrue,” he added.
He blamed Gowdy for the Republicans blowing it when Trump was elected, and Congressional Republicans had the power to really make heads roll within the deep state.
“When he had control and could have run this to ground in 2017, we didn’t send out one single subpoena, not one, and that’s a failure of our Republican leadership!” Gaetz said to conclude his anti-Gowdy rant.
The entire exchange can be seen here:
Why did Trey Gowdy go on TV in May 2018 and say the FBI did what our fellow Americans would have wanted them to do? And that it had nothing to do with @realDonaldTrump?

Big League Politics has reported on how Gowdy has not only protected the FBI while serving as House Oversight Committee chairman, but also submitted to former House Speaker Paul Ryan while heading the House Select Committee on Benghazi:
Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis told a Senate Committee adviser that House Speaker Paul Ryan “put the leash” on the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s investigation into Hillary Clinton.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, who headed the Commission, and Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, both confirmed to the adviser that Ryan effectively shut the investigation down, Big League Politics has exclusively learned…
Gowdy became one of the leaders of the investigation, along with Reps. Mike Conaway and Tom Rooney. But Gowdy’s history of taking orders from Ryan does not bode well for Trump, considering that Ryan is a fierce Trump critic behind the scenes with a very different agenda than the president.
Ryan‘s maneuverings in the Benghazi case occurred at the same time that he was shoring up support to take over from John Boehner as House Speaker.
Gowdy‘s interrogation of Clinton before the Commission was massively hyped but produced little actual results, instead allowing Clinton to come off calm, composed, and prepared while sitting for eleven hours of testimony. Rolling Stone called the hearing “Republicans’ 11-Hour Gift To Hillary Clinton.“
Clinton’s testimony occurred in October 2015, before Paul Ryan‘s rival Donald Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee or even won a single primary or caucus.
Gowdy left Congress with an exodus of RINOs in 2019, but he continues to do media appearances as if he is a conservative leader. Gaetz exposing him on Fox News will make it more difficult for Gowdy to continue his con job on Republicans.
President Trump Says He “Has a Chance to Break the Deep State” In Sunday Interview
Trump believes he’s making progress in overthrowing the bureaucrats.
President Donald Trump expressed his belief that his administration is on the verge of defeating the so-called deep state in a Sunday interview, confirming that the undemocratic bureaucratic entity is on the ropes. Trump was speaking with Full Measure’s Sharyl Atkisson, in a show that was simulcasted across local news networks across the country.
Atkisson asked the President about the job performance of Ric Grenell, the former Ambassador to Germany recently appointed as the acting Director of National Intelligence. Trump pointed to Grenell as an administration official who has been crucial in restoring real democratic, executive branch oversight of the so-called intelligence community- an element of the federal government notorious for political corruption and anti-Trump bias.
“I’m exposing the swamp… If it keeps going the way it’s going, I have a chance to break the deep state. It’s a vicious group of people. It’s very bad for our country. And that’s never happened before.”
Grenell recently stripped the FBI of the responsibility of providing national security intelligence briefings, reassigning the duty to an agency without the agency’s toxic political track record.
President Trump also disagreed with a suggestion during the interview that the coronavirus pandemic is akin to the 9/11 attacks, pointing to the global pandemic as an event that affected 186 countries, not merely the United States. When asked about the federal response to the pandemic, Trump stood by his decision to recommend wide-ranging restrictions to deter the spread of the disease, stating that he believes the coronavirus state of emergency orders saved “hundreds of thousands of lives.”
The President also rejected a study from Columbia University making the tenuous claim that an alternative coronavirus containment plan would’ve lessened the blunt of the pandemic, calling the school “a liberal, disgraceful institution.”
