Trey Gowdy Shreds Hillary Clinton’s Lies During Hearing With FBI’s James Comey
The Bulldog, Trey Gowdy, rapid-fired through Hillary Clinton’s lies during a House hearing on Thursday.
GOWDY: Secretary Clinton said there was nothing marked classified on her emails, either sent or received. Was that true?
JAMES COMEY: That’s not true.
GOWDY: Secretary Clinton said, “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email, there is no classified material.” Was that true?
COMEY: There was classified material emailed.
GOWDY: Secretary Clinton said she used just one device. Was that true?
COMEY: She used multiple devices.
GOWDY: Secretary Clinton said all work-related emails were returned to the State Department. Was that true?
COMEY: No, we found work-related emails, thousands…
GOWDY: Did her lawyers read the email content individually?
Gowdy schooled Mr. Comey on Mrs. Clinton’s “intent” of mishandling classified material.
GOWDY: In your old job, you would prove intent – as you just referenced – by showing the jury evidence of a complex scheme that was designed for the very purpose of concealing the public record. She affirmatively rejected efforts to give her a State.gov account, she kept these private emails for almost two years and only turned them over to Congress because we found out she had a private email account. So you have a rogue email system set up before she took the oath of office, thousands of what we now know to be classified emails – some of which were classified at the time, one of her more frequent email comrades was in fact hacked and you don’t know whether or not she was and this scheme took place over a long period of time and resulted in the destruction of public records and yet you say there is insufficient evidence of intent?
Gowdy finished with what he said is most concerning about the double standard for Hillary Clinton.
GOWDY: You mentioned there’s no precedent for criminal prosecution. My fear is there still isn’t. There’s nothing to keep a future Secretary of State or president from this exact same email scheme, or their staff. And my real fear is this: it’s what the chairman touched upon. This double-track justice system that is rightly or wrongly perceived in this country. That if you are a private in the Army and you email yourself classified information you will be kicked out. But if you are Hillary Clinton and you seek a promotion to Commander in Chief you will not be. So what I hope you can do today is help the reasonable person you made reference to, the reasonable person understand why she appears to be treated differently than the rest of us would be.
