James Comey made headlines during his testimony he he revealed that Loretta Lynch told him to refer to Hillary Clinton’s investigation as a “matter” instead of an investigation. It confirms people’s beliefs that the people in power were going so far as manipulating the FBI to ensure that Donald Trump didn’t win. Even though they failed, it is still very concerning.
In a Fox interview with Trey Gowdy, host Martha McCallum asked how the House Intelligence Committee should handle her. “What do you want to question her about and what’s the process with regard to her now?” asked McCallum to Gowdy.
He said that the House Intelligence Committee might not be the best place for her to testify, but he still wants to hear from her. “I am always interested when any person we hire to work for that blindfolded woman holding a set of scales — a Republican or a Democrat — does anything to put his or her finger on the scale,” said Gowdy.
“If it is accurate that she asked Director Comey to refer to the investigation as a ‘matter’ and not an ‘investigation,’ that is the equivalent of the attorney general putting her finger on the scale — and doing so for political reasons–and that’s what undercuts your viewers confidence in the justice system,” said Gowdy.
“I would love to hear her explanation of why she wanted to call an investigation a matter — I did it for two decades, we never referred to it as a matter,” said Gowdy. Check out the interview below.
