Trey Gowdy says second special counsel is likely needed to investigate DOJ — here’s why


Recommended Posts


House Oversight Committee chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said Sunday a second special counsel may be needed in Washington.

What happened?

Gowdy explained on Fox News that a special counsel may be needed to investigate the Department of Justice and its handling of two major recent investigations.

Specifically, the DOJ has come under scrutiny for how it obtained a FISA court warrant on a former member of the Trump campaign. Republicans alleged in a controversial memo last month it was obtained based on the salacious anti-Trump dossier, whereas Democrats said in a rebuttal memo that raw intelligence, not based on the memo, was used to obtain it.

Either way, there are questions about the DOJ’s scope of power and some have questioned if the government has been illegally surveilling Americans.

“You know, Maria, this Democrat memo makes me smile. If it were up to Adam Schiff, if it were up to him, it would have been a haiku, and not a memo because he did everything he could to keep us from finding out any of the information that was in either one of those memos,” he said.

“So Congress has proven itself incapable of investigating this FISA abuse. DOJ should not be looking into it. We need an independent arbiter that’s either the inspector general or special counsel,” Gowdy explained.
