Trey Gowdy just told Fox News’ “The Story with Marth MacCallum” on Tuesday that he needed to see the alleged memo that was published by the New York Times in which Trump asked him to shut down the investigation into Michael Flynn.
“I want to see the memo [and] I want to talk to Director Comey to determine how contemporaneous his recording of the conversation was,” Gowdy told Martha MacCallum. “What did Director Comey hear? How did he take it? That can only be done … that can only be done by looking at the memo and talking to Director Comey.”
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, has now requested that the FBI give them the documents that relate to Trump and Comey.
“I don’t think Director Comey reported President Obama the four different times he prejudged the outcome of an investigation,” Gowdy told MacCallum. “Director Comey has not been afraid in the past to say no to presidents and attorney generals. … I think if he felt like this was an effort to influence him, he knows exactly what to do.”
Comey then explained why he didn’t want to be FBI director.
“Quite frankly, I think the country deserves a woman or a man who is devoid of political taint,” he said. “Whether I like it or not, whether I wish I could wash it off or not, I have been in politics for six years.”
That’s a great response.
