Rep. Trey Gowdy steamrolled CNN’s Alisyn Camerota Wednesday morning, telling her not to conflate the investigation into alleged Russian tampering in the 2016 presidential election with House Intelligence chairman Devin Nunes’ ill-advised briefing of President Trump at the White House last week.
After the “New Day” host pushed Gowdy to explain how he was pursuing those two incidents, the South Carolina firebrand noted they’re “two separate lines of inquiry.”
“What Devin went to the White House about has nothing to do with Russia, so put that in a separate track,” Gowdy said. “I was ready yesterday to start interviewing witnesses, all of them.”
“I want to sit down with Adam Schiff and say ‘Adam give me your list of witnesses. Let’s do it together. Let’s interview them together. We’re both former federal prosecutors. Let’s find the facts and the truth together.'”
