Gowdy On Special Counsel: ‘Finish It The Hell Up’

By 1600 Staff

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) delivered a stern warning to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Fox News reports:

Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy tore into Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Thursday over the long-running Russia collusion probe — telling the Justice Department at a public hearing to “finish it the hell up because this country is being torn apart.” Gowdy’s excoriation marked a stunning moment at the already-tense House Judiciary Committee hearing, amid a months-long battle between congressional Republicans and the Department of Justice over its handling of both the Russia probe and Hillary Clinton email investigation.

. . .

“We’ve seen the bias, we need to see the evidence,” Gowdy said. “If you have evidence of wrongdoing by any member of the Trump campaign, present it to the damn grand jury. If you have evidence that this president acted inappropriately, present it to the American people.

. . .

Rosenstein and Wray have been criticized for months by Republicans on Capitol Hill who have suggested that the agencies are stonewalling congressional committees’ requests for documents related to the beginning of the Russia investigation. Committees have requested documents related to Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants issued to surveil former Trump campaign associate Carter Page and on the FBI’s use of a confidential human source in the Trump campaign—also known as an FBI informant. But Democrats have pushed back against those requests, with Democratic leaders sending a letter to Rosenstein and Wray on Tuesday, expressing concern that the agencies are bowing to pressure from Republicans to disclose sensitive information.

Rosenstein is on the hill being question about his stalling and concealing of evidence from Congress related to the Special Counsel investigation, which he oversees for the Department of Justice. Rosenstein has alleged that he is offended by the inappropriate conduct of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who have become infamous for conspiring against President Trump as they conducted surveillance on his 2016 campaign.

The bottom line is that the investigation is taking its toll on America, and Rep. Gowdy is voicing the frustration of millions who want a conclusion for the never-ending Mueller Investigation that seems to be a solution in search of a problem.

Great. Nice speech. What the h is going to come from it? They MUST hold Rosenstein and Wray in contempt and move toward impeachment for their refusal to hand over documents since it seems the President may not be able to order the release.

If there was evidence we would have seen it by now. There would have been leaks because the media would have pounced on it like flies on excrement. If there was evidence we would have had it thrown in our faces with a giant “I told you so.” Since we haven’t heard boo of any proof that the Trump Campaign was corrupt, but quite the opposite that the Hillary Campaign was corrupted to the nth degree ,, without consequences, I can only conclude that there IS no evidence! this dragging on and on of an investigation going no where is a slap to taxpayers, justice, and all it does is divide our country even further. If “drain the swamp” meant anything before, it has substantial meaning now. If Americans are to ever trust the Justice system again, heads should start to roll. If they don’t roll, then I as an American Taxpayer will lose trust in a government which is supposed to be “of, by and for the people.” The only way to save this Republic is to Vote GOP in November. I know the GOP stinks to high heaven too. But that’s our only option at this grave point in US history.

Both Republicans and Democrat’s have those in their parties that really need to be kicked out of our government. However, after seeing how democrats have acted and talked after Trump’s election, my personal opinion is to vote for our freedom so vote for Trump. A vote for any democrat is a vote for communist/liberals who want to take our freedom from us and make a third world country out of America. Congress should be abolished and we need to start over picking American thinking men and women and impose term limits. Obama is working in the background to get himself back in for president and that is a very scary thought.

Muelller is waiitng until about September 1, 2018 and then he is going to bring ‘”false, fake and phony chargesw against President Trump to try and get the American people to turn against President Trump in the 2018 election!!! He will not have any solid proof to back it up but will use the “Democrat Party slave liberal news emdia to push his corrupt charges “!! He is going to play you American voters, for suckers to save making the Democrat Congress!! If you American voters elect a Republican Congress he cannot impeach President Trump and so he is going to use the BIG LIE to accomplish this task!! Stop him with your votes and you will be put him our of business completely!!! It will also shut up Maxine Waters also, if that will help you with your votes also!!!…….;

His endless dog and pony show has made more noise then the all the figgin commies and RINOs put together, with out causing one single indictment. All noise no results. This too will come to zero point nothing, just like the ringmaster’s enless investigations.

Time to ring the bell. close the book. put out the candle, and send them ALL packing.

Great, Mr. Gowdy. Keep up the pressure on those laggards like Rosenstein and the new FBI kingfish Wray. They bilk the taxpayers of too much money not to produce timely results. The FBI and the DOJ have evolved into freakish cultures that consider themselves above the law. They think that the American taxpayer exists for the pleasure of the bureaucracy.
Mr. Gowdy, please increase the pressure on draining the swamp. It is an affront to loyal Americans. Rosie, with his smug smile and cocky attitude, comes across as a slap in the face to concerned citizens.
LET’S GET RID OF THESE SWAMP CREATURES. Rosie is no good for the country and the President should fire him!
Also, Wray wreaks of that stench of the old FBI culture and maybe it’s time to fire him also.

If Trey Gowdy does leave Congress, it will be a great loss for the American People! Criminals like the Clintons and Obamas would run rampant if it weren’t for true American Patriots like Gowdy and a few others.

The Clintons, all of them, should have been brought to justice a long time ago for treason, murder and money laundering! Their so called “charity” was nothing more than a front for their criminal activities. The Obamas, you know the fraudulent First Family, are even worse than the Clintons (if that’s possible), they weaseled their way into the White House fraudulently, destroyed the harmony of the American People, helped illegals and Muslim Terrorists get a foothold in the US, all the while stashing away millions and millions of dollars that, most likely, belonged to the American Taxpayers! Will these criminals ever be prosecuted? Probably not is we lose people like Trey Gowdy!

These Republicans Trump lap dogs are trying to force the investigators to divulge their case against Trump so Trumps defense team can neutralize it before it get to the Grand Jury. Every guilty crook wants exactly the same thing. In this case it is an act of obstruction of justice and they. Gowdy his fellow Republicans, Trump and is brood can discuss all of this in their cell block some day. Boy’s you get what you deserve.

Sorry Ray because they already have enough information to prove this whole thing was a set up and it goes all the way to the former administration as found in email on an unsecure server along with a mountain of evidence of the chain of events that puts the former heads of the State Department, past and Present member of the Department of Justice and several high officials
in the FBI involved in the scheme to get obstruction of Justice on President Trump. It all began before he was elected President. Mueller wasn’t eligible to become the Special Counsel to begin with as it was both a violation of ethics rules and the fact he was a lower court official which
made him ineligible but note he accepted it and had to know it was wrong.

You have people hiding behind the 5th Amendment, others have right lied, several have indicted, numerous are still under investigation. Trump has tangled a web that he will get caught in it. Investigations like this take time. How long did it take for government to get Capone and Gotti? If at wrap up time, there is no evidence or if there is, let it fall in whomever. We need to see it to the end. Mueller has done a great job, we need him to finish it when he thinks is the time. Why are the people close to trump so eager I end it .

If there was something there, they should know what it is and they should show what they are basing this investigation on. It should not be possible to announce that there is collusion and spend 22 million and have nothing to show for it. Trump is not the mafia. Even criminals have a right to see what the prosecution’s evidence is – it is the law. If you get subpoenas to gather evidence you need to have some reasonable evidence to start with. Otherwise you can slander anyone and dig into anyone’s personal information for a witch hunt – hoping to find something that you can use about that person. They are either hiding whomever got them started (because it is a politically initiated witch hunt) or they are just trying to keep Trump under a cloud of suspicion, also for political reasons. Emails have been captured showing that they were out to get Trump from the beginning. Think about what they could do to you as a citizen if they are allowed to go after the president of this country without a shred of evidence. They could ruin your life and refuse to explain why. It would not matter whether you were guilty of anything or not. There would always be suspicion even if they dropped the case on you. They are obviously doing everything in their power to bring Trump down. They must hate it that he is still doing his job and the results are very good. Meanwhile, the Hillary crime for which there was plenty of evidence not only did not get prosecuted but they just gave her a pass. They never followed through on any investigation. Do you think maybe they only wanted to divert attention away her by making the Trump investigation so public? If it has taken this long to find a way to pin this collusion thing on Trump and then refuse to explain what started the case to start with, I say either they have no supporting evidence or they are completely incompetent. In either case, they have wasted 22 million dollars to harass Trump and his team. In addition, have you ever heard of any way that Russia could swing the election? Did any Russians vote that you know of? Did the somehow hack the voting machines? They have never mentioned how any collusion would change the voting outcome. Any ideas?

The President is right. This is a conjured up farce searching for some facsimile of reality. The guy who appointed the special prosecutor didn’t have a crime, was part of the Hillary Clinton whitewash, and has been lying about the case ever since. He should be the one facing charges.

Love Gowdy’s style and directness. Even a democrat must see that there has been nothing in the Mueller probe or there would have been charges brought long ago. But Mueller is not the driving force here although this has undoubtedly made him one of the richest men in Washington. The one major thing that has been brought to light is all this is just how little authority Congress has. Other lessor agencies ignore the direction of the congress, sit and lie in hearings, refuse to produce documents, and literally ignore the legislative branch of government. It appears that the local police chief has more authority than congress.

James Barton

Now lets see some action. Mueller never expected to find evidence to indict Trump much less to convict him. But he did expect to find something (anything) that could justify impeachment. The whole idea was to get Trump anyway possible. A secondary gain has bee to use the investigation as a diversion from other issues. And to keep the political base stirred up. This was expected to help socialist democrats in the mid term elections. We shall see.

Wouldn’t it be nice if Trey Gowdy became the NEXT Attorney General after our present Mr. Sessions decides to resign? Could it be that Sessions is staying just so that he can leave after the November elections and/or after the beginning of the new year and the new legislators take office? Gowdy would be good and he has the law background that the job needs and the common sense to be able to fill it AND I believe he has the temperament we need at the present time. I must admit – I THOUGHT tha Sessions did, too, and he has been a sore disappointment! I don’t think Gowdy would!
