Former prosecutor Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who has never lost a case, just fired off a warning shot to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
As a member of the House Intelligence Committee, he has already threatened to hold the FBI and Department of Justice in contempt of Congress for withholding information related to the removal of FBI agent Peter Strzok from Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
Gowdy explained on Fox News that this Special Counsel has serious “integrity” problems now that we’ve learned that anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok was removed for bashing the President on text messages with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, his mistress.
There are more than 10,000 text messages that need to be reviewed. Gowdy opined, “We met with the Department of Justice … and they have to go through the texts.”
Then he added details about just what the Committee is interested in: “We are not entitled to them, nor do we have an interest in purely personal texts. We are very interested in both anti-Trump and/or pro-Clinton texts. Because, as he made reference to, he was a very important agent in her investigation, also in the ongoing Russian related investigation, perhaps the decision for Comey to change the wording in a statement.”
Gowdy’s comments about “wording in a statement” is a reference to former FBI Director James Comey, who described Hillary Clinton’s email investigation as “extremely careless” instead of “grossly negligent” to avoid certain legal ramifications for the former Democratic presidential candidate.
Gowdy said, “He is super important and people have a right to know whether agents are biased one way or another. The department is going to go through the texts been going to make them available to us as soon as they can.”
Fox News’ Martha MacCallum pressed Gowdy on if he has any faith left in Muller’s ongoing probe. Gowdy responded, “I do, but I have got to confess to you, and I understand who think I’m wrong. I got an email last night from a friend back home saying, ‘Look, Gowdy, let go of the prosecutor stuff.’ I still think that Mueller can produce a product that we all have confidence in, but things like this, make it really difficult — the perception is, is every bit as important as the reality, and if the perception is, you’re employing people who are biased, it makes us really difficult for those of us that would like to defend the integrity of former prosecutors.”

One serious look at Mueller’s history and it’s clear he is a dirty cop. He should be investigated for the witch hunt and past crimes including his $100,000 in personal travel on our dime pic.twitter.com/xWpx0PU71p
