Video: Gowdy on Russia Probe: 'Finish It the Hell Up'
"Russia isn't being hurt by this investigation right now. This country is being hurt by it."
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray:
“Russia attacked this country. They should be the target, but Russia isn’t being hurt by this investigation right now. This country is being hurt by it. We are being divided.”
“We need to see the evidence. If you have evidence of wrongdoing by any member of the Trump campaign, present it to the damn grand jury. "If you have evidence that this president acted inappropriately, present it to the American people. There’s an old saying that justice delayed is justice denied. I think right now all of us are being denied. Whatever you got, finish it the hell up, because this country is being torn apart.”
“When a foreign state interferes with our democratic electoral process, it should be the chance of a lifetime for a law-enforcement agent to investigate that, except, apparently, the one [Peter Strzok] that was actually picked to investigate it.”
“At about the exact same time [Strzok] was picked to lead [the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference], this dispassionate and fair FBI agent was calling Trump a disaster, destabilizing for the country. I’ll leave out all the ‘F’ adjectives he used to describe that. I’ll just go with disaster and destabilizing.”
“At precisely the same time Bob Mueller was appointed, Peter Strzok was talking about his unfinished business and how he needed to fix and finish it so Donald Trump did not become president.”
“[Strzok] was talking about impeachment within three days of special counsel Mueller being appointed. That’s even quicker than MSNBC and the Democrats were talking about impeaching him!”
