Trey Gowdy says the House Intelligence Committee is currently investigating five FBI officials.
Gowdy did not name the officials but if I had to take a guess it would have to be James Comey, Sally Yates, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. But it’s only a guess although Comey, Yates, and McCabe are probable. The other two could also be Bruce Ohr and Dana Boente.
Those three misled the FISA court on the Hillary dossier. They are all guilty of perjury and possibly worse. The only reason the committee would investigate them is to find out the exact nature of their crimes so that they could file a criminal referral.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Rep. Trey Gowdy said there might be about five FBI employees whose actions have been suspect in the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and the whole bureau should not be attacked.
“I have tremendous respect for the bureau, there are 30,000 employees, let’s assume that there are five that engaged in conduct that we have questions about,” Gowdy said on CBS’ “Face The Nation” Sunday.
The FBI has been under siege by President Trump and Republicans for the investigation into Russia’s actions in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign.
Gowdy said the partisan tone of the investigation has become a major problem. He said he hopes the release of a four-page memo detailing how the FBI used a controversial dossier compiled on Trump by a political opposition research firm as evidence for a warrant to spy on a Trump campaign adviser is a “one-off.”
“I hope this is a one-off, that Congress takes this position but also hope it’s a one-off that a [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] application contains errors and product that is funded by a political opponent. I hope that is a one-off,” he said.
