South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy questioned the integrity of Deputy Attorney General Rоd Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray at a congressional hearing concerning their involvement in the 2016 election.
“You have more bias than I have ever ѕeen manifest in a law enforcement officer in the 20 years I used to do it for a living and four other DOJ employees who had a manifest animus toward the person they were supposed to be neutrally and detachedly investigating,” Gowdy said.
Rosenstein and Wray replied questions around the FBI’s and Equity Department’s activities in respect to the Hillary Clinton email examination and Russian еxamination on Capitol Slope Thursday.
“Two years into this investigation. We’re a year-and-a-half into the presidency. We’re over a year into special counsel,” he added. “You have a counterintelligence investigation that has become public. You have a criminal investigation that has become political.”
The House will vote on a determination requesting the Equity Division comply with demands for records and subpoenas from the House Insights and Legal Committees afterward on Thursday.
Gowdy also took shots at the Democrats in Congress, stating, “Democrats are using this investigation as a presumption of guilt, which I find astonishing, in the long run, for the health of this republic and encourage them to go back to the presumption of innocence that we used to hold sacred. There is a presumption of guilt.”
