Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) appeared on Fox News with Bill Hemmer, Wednesday to discuss the explosive, smoking gun documents that were released by Judicial Watch, yesterday.
Gowdy said that the documents only prove what we already suspected, that “the White House was preoccupied with spinning their policy more so than telling the people the truth.”
But the slightly agitated Gowdy continued, “but Bill, Congress didn’t get this email. And that’s the point that I would stress to you and your viewers. This email came because of a court action by a private entity.
After 20 months, Congress still doesn’t have all the emails, and apparently we’re not willing to do anything to force the administration to give us the emails.”
How many more emails are there like this? And are we going to have to wait another 20 months to get those?” a clearly frustrated Gowdy asked.
“But it’s been 20 months!” Gowdy later exclaimed, “And we didn’t even get this email! Congress is supposed to provide the oversight – not Judicial Watch!”
“You would hope that my colleagues in the House – particularly the leadership, would be so infuriated that a private entity is getting more information from this administration than we are, that we would actually start using the tools that we have at our disposal to compel the information being produced. If this email existed for 20 months and we just got it, what else exists that we don’t know about,” Gowdy concluded.
