In an interview on Fox and Friends Tuesday morning, South Carolina Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy minced no words on who was to blame for Hillary Clinton’s email investigation.
Clinton is blaming James Comey for reopening the investigation, but Gowdy said Comey never told Hillary Clinton to set up a private email server, nor to lie about almost every aspect of the investigation.
Gowdy said Comey also didn’t tell Huma Abedin to not turn over all her devices, nor did he tell Anthony Weiner to sext with underage girls, “so I don’t know how James Comey is responsible for any of this.”
Since the FBI reopened the investigation, Huma Abedin has been absent from her normal place at Clinton’s side, and Clinton has dismissed the situation by saying the FBI is looking at emails belonging to “one of my staffers.”
Asked about Loretta Lynch trying to keep James Comey from coming forward, Gowdy said, “I could’ve sworn that Loretta Lynch recused herself from this situation because she met with Bill Clinton on the tarmac, so what in the world she’s doing talking to Jim Comey about this investigation baffles me!”
