Gowdy and GOP are Liars: GOP will hit FBI, DOJ with 'constitutional weapons' if they don't comply with subpoena says Gowdy


I have no confidence in Trey Gowdy or the Republicans because they are just as corrupt as the bad actors in the DOJ and the FBI. 
In fact, they may be even worse because they act as if they are trying to root out wrong doing in the FBI.  Instead they are helping to sweep it under the rug with endless investigations.  These phony   probes are meant to produce political talking points rather than prosecuting  law breakers.    

Fox News reports House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy told "Fox News Sunday" that House Speaker Paul Ryan led a meeting Friday night with senior members of the DOJ and FBI, and made it clear that “there’s going to be action on the floor of the House this week if FBI and DOJ do not comply with our subpoena request.”

The House Judiciary Committee has requested more than a million documents from the FBI and DOJ relating to the Hillary Clinton email probe, the firing of former top FBI official Andrew McCabe, and reported surveillance of a Trump aide during the 2016 presidential election.

But Republicans have accused the DOJ and FBI of stonewalling and intentionally impeding their investigation, despite the agencies' claims that fulfilling the request requires a careful review of the sensitive documents.
