Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff are going to want to duck for cover.
This is the outcome Pelosi and her allies feared the most.
And Trey Gowdy obliterated the January 6 committee with one brutal truth.
Former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy obliterated Attorney General Merrick Garland’s announcement that he was closely watching the sham January 6 committee’s propaganda hearings.
Attorney-General Garland made that announcement in response to demands from Democrats and liberals in the corporate press that the Department of Justice indict Donald Trump over what happened on January 6.
Gowdy declared it an abuse of power that the attorney general would make prosecutorial decisions based on what he watched on television.
“There’s nothing wrong with watching television… but I guess the difference is, you and I don’t have much of a choice when it comes to getting information. We don’t get to have an army of investigators and prosecutors at our disposal, Merrick Garland does,” Gowdy stated.
Gowdy continued on explaining that the attorney general had the most sophisticated law enforcement agency in the world at his disposal.
“He has federal law enforcement at his beck and call. He has scores of prosecutors, he has access to a grand jury and search warrants… he can access financial records and phone records… he can compel witnesses to testify… so why is he watching television? Why does the chief prosecutor, the managing partner of the most powerful law firm in the world need to watch television to gather facts? He can interview any of the witnesses he wants to interview. He can gather whatever evidence he thinks is relevant,” Gowdy continued.
Gowdy also told viewers that the attorney general making indictment decisions based on the January 6 committee hearings prove this was a partisan witch hunt.
The committee’s hearings included no adversarial questioning as the committee was stacked 100 percent with Trump haters.
“There is no comparison between the power of the Department of Justice versus the power of Congress, yet the attorney general is not only watching TV, the department is miffed that Congress will not share what it has with the department. Why? Why is the attorney general gathering evidence from television? And how reliable would that evidence be given the absence of confrontation or cross-examination?” Gowdy added.
Gowdy concluded by questioning what the Department of Justice has been doing the last year and a half if the best the attorney general can do to gain information about what happened on January 6 is watch a one-sided TV show.
“Garland and his prosecutors can watch whatever they want on television. [But] I do wonder why the attorney general is watching a hearing when he has far better investigative tools at his disposal?… It does make you wonder what the department has been doing for the past 18 months. If you want to know what happened, find and examine witnesses and evidence. The remote control ain’t going to help you,” Gowdy concluded.
