Gowdy: Oversight panel launched Porter investigation 'last night'

Source: Politico




By LOUIS NELSON 02/14/2018 09:11 AM EST

The House Oversight Committee is investigating the Trump administration’s employment of Rob Porter, the former White House staff secretary accused of domestic abuse, committee chairman Trey Gowdy said Wednesday.

Gowdy was asked on CNN’s “New Day” if his committee would launch an investigation into Porter’s employment at the White House and at what point the administration was made aware of the allegations against him. "We did last night,” he responded.

“You can call it official. You can call it unofficial,” Gowdy said. “I'm going to direct questions to the FBI that I expect them to answer. And if they don't answer them, then they're going to need to give me a really good reason.”

1. So they're going to vilify the FBI? Not direct inquiries to the administration?

3. What's there to investigate....

the whole sordid story is now in the open. Pretty soon they will be investigating the investigators who are investigating.

4. Ghazi Gowdy?

With Gowdy leading the investigation, it shouldn't take long for him to declare that Hillary Clinton beat Porter's wives. Probably paid to do the beating by Obama.

How about Gowdy reimburse taxpayers for all the futile, fruitless, vicious investigations he contrived against Hillary?

7. "Ghazi Gowdy?"

Between you and me I think this piece of trash is up to something... I don't know what yet but it's something.. This staunch Hillary bashing conservative doing a 180 is just fishy..
But that's me...

8. Hey Trey Table.........................

you do fucking realize, pinhead, that you have the means and the right to call Kelly, McGahn and even the orange traitor of your party to ask some questions, there is no law or rule that says you cannot, none......................so why don't you start there , the FBI has already said what they said "yesterday" dumbshit in testimony.

And as for this comment.............unfucking believable................

“You can call it official. You can call it unofficial,” Gowdy said. “I'm going to direct questions to the FBI that I expect them to answer. And if they don't answer them, then they're going to need to give me a really good reason.”


Your nothing more than fucking right wing political hack trying to protect whomever, call the, loser president, the racist chief of staff, and other idiot directing the white house legal counsel, and then call sarah for good old time sake...............




November 2018 cannot get here fast enough

9. Oversight? What oversight.

They should have been investigating Trump’s dodgy team a year ago. What phoniness.

11. Pretty much what I'd expect from a shithead like Gowdy.

Go after the FBI, the organization that has obviously done its work properly as to the Porter scandal, while letting the White House thugs off the hook. I hope FBI Director Wray's response is strong and that he releases it to the public.
