It’s hard not to love Trey Gowdy. Especially when he fires back at Democrats with intelligent, hilarious retorts like the following.
Ever since announcement that the FBI had reopened their investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, Democrats have gone on a rampage against director James Comey.
They’ve even become unhinged, as evidenced by Howard Dean’s claims that Comey is in cahoots with Vladimir Putin, and Harry Reid’s suggestion that the director broke the law.
You heard that right – he thinks COMEY broke the law. Clinton breaking the law is perfectly cool, but the FBI director actually investigating that criminality is the real problem, according to Reid.
“I am writing to inform you that my office has determined that these actions may violate the Hatch Act, which bars FBI officials from using their official authority to influence an election,” Reid wrote to Comey. “Through your partisan actions, you may have broken the law.”
Gowdy offered the perfect response to Reid, saying “I didn’t know Mormons used drugs.”
Actually, the entire quote is tremendous when Gowdy is asked for his reaction to Reid’s letter:
Thank God he’s leaving, is my initial reaction. My second reaction is: I did not know Mormons used drugs. And anyone who is capable of sending out that press release has to be under the influence of something.
Check out the segment below (relevant portion at about 3:51) …
“The person responsible for this fact pattern is Secretary Clinton,” Gowdy explained.
“Jim Comey did not tell her to use her private server. He did not say to mislead the public about whether or not you turned over all of your work emails. And he certainly didn’t say, Secretary Clinton, why don’t you say you neither sent nor received classified information.”
In the end, Gowdy offered up this comparison between Comey and Reid – “Look, Senator Reid is a political hack and Jim Comey is a law enforcement officer.”
Bam! After that epic beatdown, the fight Reid got into with his exercise equipment probably seems like a cake walk.
