Trey Gowdy responded to Democrats’ constant attacks on releasing the FISA memo. He went on to point out the one detail of the memo they always seem to ignore.
“But it’s both the Steele dossier, and who paid for it, and whether or not it was vetted, but it’s also what was not in it. This is an application to a court. So, I get that Adam Schiff and others are worried about what’s not in my memo,” said Gowdy.
“I wish that they were equally concerned about what’s not in the FISA application, which is a lot of really important information about the source, and its sub-sources, and the fact that he was hired by the DNC and the Clinton campaign, and the fact that he was biased against President Trump. That is all information that the– that the finder of fact is entitled to,” he said.
He also discussed if the investigation would have ever been authorized without the dossier. “It would not have been,” said Gowdy. “How can you say that because it was authorized four times by separate judges?” asked CBS’ “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan.
“Right, and the information was in there all four times. And the judge doesn’t do independent research. There are three Republicans that have seen every bit of information — three of us. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), the Chairman of the Judiciary, Johnny Ratcliffe (R-TX), who was a former terrorism prosecutor and a U.S. attorney in Texas, and me,” said Gowdy.
