Trey Gowdy makes bold prediction of Trump shakeup in one week that would turn politics upside down

Rep. Trey Gowdy slammed the “really bad facts” emerging in what is supposed to be an objective Department of Justice and FBI, and dropped a bombshell prediction that Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe would not be employed for long.

Following his questioning of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Wednesday, Gowdy voiced his frustration with McCabe to Fox News’ Martha MacCallum.

McCabe,  who was in charge of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, unexpectedly cancelled an appearance Tuesday before the House Intelligence Committee. Gowdy, unhappy that the deputy FBI director was not testifying himself, said he expected him to be dismissed from his position soon.

“This is a really bad fact pattern,” Gowdy said, noting that Rosenstein was having to “do a little bit of clean up” for McCabe, FBI official Peter Strzok, and  former FBI Director James Comey. “But these are really bad facts if you care about an impartial, objective Department of Justice and FBI.”

The South Carolina Republican referred to messages from Strzok, the FBI employee demoted from the Russian investigation after anti-Trump texts were discovered, with one in particular that seemed to imply there was discussion of preventing his election.

“I’m still trying to figure out why three FBI agents are discussing politics in the Deputy Director’s office, because you’re not supposed to discuss politics on federal ground and FBI agents aren’t supposed to engage in politics for Hatch Act reasons,” Gowdy said.

McCabe’s hearing was rescheduled for December 19th, but Gowdy is not expecting him to appear.

“I’ll be shocked if he comes next week,” the GOP lawmaker said. “I’ll be a little bit surprised if he is still an employee of the FBI this time next week.”

“But the notion that three bureau agents would be conspiring or plotting on how to handle the outcome of a presidential election is the opposite of what you want in an objective, dispassionate, neutral FBI,” he added.
