Trey Gowdy does not have a very high opinion of Eric Swalwell, who is running for p-resident for some reason or another. He is using gun control as the main theme of his campaign, which has always been a losing issue.
Gowdy pointed out that Swalwell is insisting that Trump prove his innocence, rather than the other way around as prescribed by law.
“His last sentence is exactly the difference between a prosecutor and a politician. Prosecutors prove that you did something, politicians make you prove you did not. Did you hear his last sentence? ‘I challenge President Trump to prove that he did not do something.’ That’s what politicians do.”
Former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy took a jab at presidential hopeful Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) as he was responding to his and other Democrats’ criticism of Attorney General William Barr on The Story with Martha MacCallum.
“I think that last voice was Eric Swalwell’s and for your viewers that don’t know who that is, that’s a member of the judiciary committee and intelligence committee from California, he’s running for president, which I’m sure none of your viewers are familiar with and they won’t be a year from now,” Gowdy said. “So he’s trying to get attention.”
Swalwell has refused to budge on virtually any aspect of the Russian collusion conspiracy theory despite the conclusions of the Mueller report, even to the point of taking seriously the most salacious claims of the discredited and unverified Steele dossier.
