Some people in this country seem perfectly happy to accept the FBI’s decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton, despite the massive amounts of evidence against her. Trey Gowdy is not one of those people.
According to reports, Gowdy is taking a stand against FBI Director James Comey, who appears to continue covering up for Clinton.
“What would she have had to do to warrant your recommendation for prosecution?” Gowdy asked.
Comey responded that he would have needed proof of her intent to move forward.
“But the way to prove that is whether or not someone took steps to conceal or destroy what they’ve done.” Gowdy argued. “That is the best evidence you have that they knew it was wrong, that they lied about it.”
“You have to prove circumstantial evidence such as whether or not the person intended to set up an e-mail system outside the State Department,” Gowdy continued. “I think you would agree with this, Director—false exculpatory statements are gold in a courtroom. I would rather have a false exculpatory statement than a confession. I would rather have someone lie about something and it be provable that that is a lie, such as that I neither sent nor received classified information. Such as that I turned over all my work related e-mails. All of that to me goes to the issue of intent.
