FBI Director James Comey confirmed publicly during a House Intelligence Committee hearing that the FBI has been investigating President Donald J. Trump’s 2016 campaign for possible ties to Russians.
During the hearing, Rep. Adam Schiff (the ranking Democrat on the committee) accused Team Trump of having close ties to Russia.
But FBI Director Comey said there is no evidence of any Russian collusion.
That’s when Gowdy chimed in, and reminded Comey that the real crime here is the leaking of a secret FISA court order, which is a felony punished by a decade in prison:
“If you are tuning in to see evidence that President Obama wiretapped President Trump, I would suggest you turn over to ESPN and watch the highlights of the Gamecocks last night,” the South Carolina Republican told host Bret Baier. “I don’t think you’re going to see any of that.”
“I would go ahead and tell you just assume that unless I am dead wrong, there is no evidence to support President Obama wiretapping President Trump,” Gowdy continued. “But the analysis does not end there.”
“You have the dissemination — the felonious dissemination of classified information that will jeopardize 320 million Americans, and I would love it if our friends in the mainstream media would focus on the leak as much as they did the wiretap tweet.”
Here is Gowdy’s powerful statement to Comey. Wow!
@TGowdySC is insanely articulate and intelligent. His concerns are valid, for everyone on both sides.

This is a key point, because Gowdy’s turning the tables on the FBI. The biggest problem is the dissemination of leaks which were illegal and targeted to hurt Trump. Something seriously wrong happened in the intelligence community, and there are many questions to answer about the crimes committed.
