Congressman Trey Gowdy again took to the airwaves to defend Special Counsel Robert Mueller, this time over President Donald Trump’s lawyer calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire the Special Counsel.
“When you are innocent… act like it,” Trey Gowdy said during an interview on Fox News Sunday. “My advice to the President is the same thing I just told his lawyer, give Bob Mueller the time, the independence, and the resources to do the job.”
Gowdy went further, adding that he was confused why the President was attacking Special Counsel Mueller when a “Trump nominated” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein picked him. “Keep in mind, he didn’t volunteer for this,” he gestured with emphasis, “A Trump nominated Rod Rosenstein is who picked Bob Mueller.”
“And when the allegation is collusion with the Russians, and there is no evidence of that… act like it,” Gowdy said.
The most revealing and disturbing revelation comes later when Chris Wallace asked what Gowdy and other republicans will do if President Trump shuts down the Mueller investigation.
Trey Gowdy responds, “Well I’m not sure the House could do a lot, we don’t have advise and consent,” Gowdy answered. “The President is going to have a difficult time nominating and having approved another attorney general.”
“It’s going to be,” Gowdy laughs, “I would just counsel the President, it’s going to be a very, very long, bad 2018.”
Gowdy did admit that his fellow congressional republicans in the House of Representatives couldn’t do much, but that the Senate would stymie efforts to name another attorney general.
Chris Wallace did not ask about the Attorney General’s response on shutting the Mueller investigation down, he asked a question about what congressional republicans would do. Trey Gowdy instead decides to televise the deep state’s threat — Trump cannot shut down the investigation because neither Attorney General Jeff Sessions or his subordinates will shut down the investigation.
Trey Gowdy may have confirmed the theory that many believe the deep state is working with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to overthrow the Trump administration. Does this revelation confirm that Attorney General Jeff Sessions will not end the Special Counsel investigation into the 2016 Russian collusion allegations against the President, no matter how broad or irrelevant the investigation gets?
Under the theory, Trey Gowdy shows that the deep state believes that Sessions will not fire Mueller, and knows that in order to end the investigation, Trump will have to fire Jeff Sessions. Is this the true war that is going on behind the scenes of Washington D.C.? Is Trump trying to get the public to demand the Senate turn on the deep state and force a changeover at the Department of Justice?
