Trey Gowdy absolutely unloaded on Comey on Fox News and it’s pretty awesome.
Transcript from the Daily Caller:
“You should aspire to more in life than simply skating by without having been indicted,” Gowdy said before noting that perhaps Comey should give back some of his “‘Higher Loyalty’ speaking fees.”
“The criticism here is that if somebody else had done this, they would be in handcuffs,” Chaffetz noted. “They would be going to jail, but is Lady Justice being fair and right here, and is he being held accountable?”
“I would tell my fellow citizens this: We have to have other ways of meting out accountability other than simply indictments,” Gowdy said, observing that Hillary Clinton had a “consequence” of losing the election despite not getting indicted. Comey, Gowdy said, got “dinged on both of the major investigations he was handling in 2016 by the inspector general. That will be the accountability and that’s what history will remember about Jim Comey.”
And from what we’ve seen, there’s going to be another report that might get Comey in a lot more trouble, so perhaps he should tone down the sanctimony a little bit.
