Rep. Trey Gowdy slammed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Monday for Schumer’s attacks against the House Intelligence Committee chairman.
Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes has taken a lot of heat lately, some has been deserved, for making a trip to the White House to analyze classified information related to the possible surveillance of President Donald Trump during his transition.
After Schumer called for Nunes to be removed from his position as chairman, Gowdy spoke to Fox News on Monday to fire back at Schumer.
“I just love it when Senator Schumer gives Republicans advice on what we ought to do,” Gowdy said. “Devin is doing exactly what the chairman is to do.”
“Whether it was the White House or Waffle House, I wish Senator Schumer and some of the other Democrats would be more interested in the authenticity and reliability of the underlying data rather than the means by which it was acquired,” Gowdy continued.
Gowdy served as a staunch watchdog of the Obama administration and on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
