South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy had a simple response to the news that Sen. Harry Reid accused FBI Director James Comey of violating the Hatch Act.
“I did not know Mormons use drugs,” Gowdy told Bret Baier on Fox News’ “Special Report” Sunday. “Anyone who is capable of sending out that press release has to be under the influence of something.”
Reid claimed, in a letter so ridiculous it’s nutty even for him, that Comey might have violated the Hatch Act, which prevents FBI officials from using their position to intentionally influence an election.
“Thank God he’s leaving,” Gowdy said, adding that Hillary Clinton is responsible for her own issues.
“Jim Comey did not tell her to use her private server. He did not say ‘mislead the public about whether or not you turned over all of your work emails’,” Gowdy said. “And he certainly didn’t say, ‘Secretary Clinton, why don’t you say you neither sent nor received classified information.’ So, look, Senator Reid is a political hack and Jim Comey is a law enforcement officer.
“He’s not a Republican or a Democrat. I’ve had my differences with him in the past, but he’s not a political hack like Senator Reid is.”
