Trey Gowdy throws Democrats’ fake outrage about Don Jr. oppo-research meeting right back in their faces

Democrats are hammering Donald Trump Jr. for accepting a meeting with a Russian lawyer who promised ‘opposition-research’ on Hillary Clinton, but South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy, himself an attorney and former prosecutor, doesn’t see a problem with it at all.

During a Thursday appearance on Fox & Friends, Gowdy answered a question about whether Trump Jr. did anything illegal with a resounding, “No, I don’t even think he did anything improper.”


The two were discussing the fact that Trump Jr. had just answered questions for a grueling 10 hours. Gowdy called the president’s son’s conduct “incredibly professional.”

“Did he break any laws?” asked the Fox & Friends host.

To which Gowdy responded, “No, I don’t even think he did anything improper. Differing minds can quibble about whether you should accept an offer to provide oppo-research.”

Then, Gowdy put the one-sentence nail in the Democrats’ coffin of hypocrisy, adding, “Keep in mind the DNC was paying $10 million to do oppo-research on Trump.”

In other words, what’s good for the goose?

As far as who is actually corrupt, Gowdy was complementary of most rank and file FBI agents, but highly critical of the agency’s leadership.

“The higher-ups have had a really bad two years,” Gowdy said, adding that they are the ones “whose reputations are under assault, not the line agents.”

“Congress should not have to fight with the FBI to access information that we’re entitled to. We should not have to threaten Contempt of Congress,” The South Carolina Congressman said of FBI stonewalling. “I want the information we are entitled to to be able to do our jobs.”
