Congressman Trey Gowdy fired back at Democrat Senate minority leader Harry Reid for his claim that FBI director James Comey may have broken the law for informing congressional leaders in both parties that Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is under investigation, after new, previously undisclosed emails were discovered on shared laptop owned by progressive pervert Anthony Weiner and Hillary’s right-hand woman, Huma Abedin.
Rep. Gowdy hilariously told FOX News anchor Bret Baier on Sunday that Harry Reid is a “political hack” who may be under the influence of drugs (no doubt tongue in cheek). Reid, who claims to be a Mormon (why the church doesn’t excommunicate him is one of life’s greatest mysteries) is finally retiring after this term in office and Gowdy is quite thankful.
“Thank God he’s leaving is my initial reaction,” Gowdy told Baier when asked to react to Reid’s letter to Comey. “My second reaction is I did not know Mormons used drugs. And anyone who is capable of sending out that press release has to be under the influence of something,” Gowdy opined.
Reid’s scathing letter to Comey, a clear intimidation tactic that Reid often uses against political opponents, accused Comey of violating the Hatch Act. Reid or his staff wrote:
“Your actions in recent months have demonstrated a disturbing double standard for the treatment of sensitive information, with what appears to be a clear intent to aid one political party over another. I am writing to inform you that my office has determined that these actions may violate the Hatch Act, which bars FBI officials from using their official authority to influence an election. Through your partisan actions, you may have broken the law. The double standard established by your actions is clear.”

On Friday, Gowdy blasted Hillary Clinton for her disingenuous charge that James Comey should be more transparent, noting the hypocrisy that if she had turned over everything that she promised to, we wouldn’t be in this situation. In an interview with Megyn Kelly, Gowdy said:
“He cannot confirm or deny the existence of an investigation — that’s DOJ rules. And Secretary Clinton knows he cannot produce the information in the middle of an investigation. So it’s a little bit — to me Megyn — it’s a little bit…this is the same person who said I’ve neither sent or received classified information — this is the same person who said I turned over all my work-related emails — I only had one device — my lawyers went through everything.
That’s the same person that now wants all of this public disclosure — the same person who went to great lengths to make sure that these emails were private. Now all of a sudden wants it all made public. It’s just too rich.”
“It’s easy to ask people you know cannot disclose things to do so,” Gowdy said. “I mean, that makes her look transparent. But if it’s a day that ends in y, you can rest assured she’d talked to Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills,” Gowdy opined.
“She knows exactly what’s on those computers, just like her lawyers know what was deleted from the Platte River network. And if she’s dying for us to know what she and Huma Abedin were doing on Anthony Weiner’s computer, she’s welcome to tell us!”
Harry Reid doesn’t need drugs to be vile or launch false accusations. In the heat of the 2012 presidential campaign, Reid made the false charge that fellow Mormon Mitt Romney hadn’t paid taxes in 10 years according to anonymous sources. Last month, Reid admitted that he lied about Romney, was not sorry about it, and flippantly said, “He didn’t win, did he?”
In other words, the ends justify the means with Harry Reid. He has zero credibility.
