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.
Federal Court to Re-Examine Michael Flynn’s Case After Request From Democrat-Appointed Judge
This seems highly improper.
U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan is trying to revive the federal case against General Michael Flynn weeks after it was officially dismissed.
According to the Washington Post, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has decided to revisit the Department of Justice’s decision to drop the case at Sullivan’s behest. Sullivan has been on a crusade against Flynn for months, which Flynn’s attorneys claim is politically motivated. He was appointed to the bench by former President Bill Clinton.
“The district court has hijacked and extended a criminal prosecution for almost three months for its own purposes,” Flynn attorneys Sidney Powell and Jesse Binnall told the court.
“To allow Judge Sullivan to delay and generate litigation against a criminal defendant is unconstitutional,” they added, because the “Executive Branch has exclusive authority and absolute discretion to decide whether to prosecute a case.”
Sullivan has failed in other attempts to keep the case going, which have included appealing to a retired federal judge and retaining a high-profile trial lawyer. He has let his objectivity slip with his aggressive lobbying campaign against Flynn, who was able to narrowly escape the deep state railroading against him.
Big League Politics has reported on how the feds collaborated to set up Gen. Flynn over the course of their phony Russia-gate investigation:
New unsealed FBI notes on the planned interrogation of Michael Flynn suggest a questionable intent to the investigation of the then-White House National Security Advisor and retired general.
The notes, which preceded the January 24th, 2017 interview of Flynn, suggest the investigating FBI agents were more interested in tripping up Flynn in a lie than in genuinely investigating the National Security Advisor’s negotiations with Russia during the White House transition period preceding President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
Additional notes on the matter suggest that the FBI agents involved in the case were cautious of White House oversight…
FBI agents question openly if they’re trying to investigate Flynn for negotiating potential sanctions relief with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, or if they’re simply trying to trip him up in a lie for them to charge him with. Flynn was ultimately forced to resign as White House National Security Advisor and charged with lying to the FBI as a result of the January 2017 interview.
Flynn has merely been charged with process crimes. He was never charged with violations of the Logan Act, which restricts civilians from negotiating with foreign governments on behalf of the United States without authorization.
The retired general recently announced he’d seek to change his guilty plea to the charges to not guilty, citing a legal team that shoehorned him into making the plea. If so, Flynn could potentially bring up the questionable FBI game plan going into his interview as an argument for the agency’s impropriety in investigating him.
The deep state is obviously bitter that their plan to destroy Flynn’s life failed. Sullivan should be impeached, or worse, for abusing his power so brazenly.
