Trey Gowdy identified a major source in the dossier investigation that fed information to Hillary Clinton. “I’m pretty troubled by what I read in the documents with respect to the role the State Department played in the fall of 2016, including information that was used in a court proceeding. I am troubled by it,” said Gowdy in an interview with Martha MacCallum.
“So, weeks before the election, somebody in the Obama State Department was feeding information from a foreign source to Christopher Steele?” asked MacCallum. “When you hear who the source, one of the sources, of that information is, you’re going to think ‘oh my gosh. I’ve heard that name somewhere before. Where could it possibly have been?’” said Gowdy.
“The foreign source?” MacCallum asked. “The domestic source, and I’m trying to think how Secretary Clinton defined him. I think she said he was an old friend who emailed her from time to time,” said Gowdy.
“Sidney Blumenthal?” asked MacCallum. “That’d be really warm. If you’re warm, yeah,” responded Gowdy.
Interesting! “The Democrats are politically smart enough to put things in the memo that require either the Bureau or the Department of Justice to say it needs to be redacted. Therefore, it creates this belief that there’s something being hidden from the American people. And keep in mind, this is the same crowd that voted not to release our memo and voted not to gain a lot of this information over the last 12 months. But unfortunately we’re in an environment where you would include material that you know has to be redacted and you know responsible people are going to redacted, just so that question will be asked,” explained Gowdy.
