Pass The Popcorn: Trey Gowdy Roasts The DOJ [VIDEO]

This is what I am really going to miss about Representative Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, when he leaves the House after this year’s midterm elections. I am going to miss the way he just effortlessly eviscerates witnesses.

Behold, and bring your popcorn, his comments this morning to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray, in front of the House Judiciary Committee today.

Gowdy’s comments had to have had Rosenstein and Wray squirming just a little bit.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) urged the Justice Department to swiftly finish the investigation into Russian election interference, saying that the probe has “torn” the American people apart.

He urged the department to present evidence of any wrongdoing by President Trump, if they possess it.

“There’s an old saying that justice delayed is justice denied,” Gowdy said. “I think right now all of us are being denied. Whatever you’ve got, finish it the hell up, because this country is being torn apart.”

“I have heard suggestions that we should just close the investigation,” Rosenstein replied. “I think the best thing we can do is finish it appropriately and reach a conclusion.”

Also at the heart of today’s questioning: the clash between the House and the Justice Department: the documents that the House has been demanding.

The House on Thursday passed a resolution demanding the Department of Justice (DOJ) hand over sensitive documents, in the process delivering a final warning shot to senior officials before conservatives move ahead with more aggressive action against the department.

In a 226-183 vote, lawmakers approved the messaging measure, which calls on the DOJ to turn over all of the documents House Republicans have requested related to the FBI’s handling of investigations during the 2016 presidential election.

The party-line vote, with one Republican voting present, puts the entire conference on the record in the escalating feud between the DOJ and House Republicans, who have been fighting for months for access to a trove of highly sensitive documents.

While the resolution is not enforceable, Republicans say they wanted to send a clear message to the DOJ and are vowing to impeach or hold senior officials in contempt of Congress if they don’t comply with their document request.

Gowdy is absolutely correct that the American people are not being well served by the Justice Department right now as this entire investigation drags out. Will they actually heed his words and wrap the investigation up? It’s doubtful.

It’s a shame Gowdy is going to leave Washington, but I really can’t blame him. Do you think he’d be willing to stay if he was nominated for the Supreme Court?

    The interwebs are forever. Mr. Gowdy served the US well.

    I won’t miss him, because all he ever does is talk, talk, talk. No action. I don’t know what Congress can do about these sleazy, lying leftists in our government, but whatever it is, they should be doing it. Not just talking.

    Not Trey “Howdy” Gowdy…watch out now. The Benghazi “protesters” tremble in fear.
