Trey Gowdy Stops Just Short Of Calling Collusion On The Clintons And The DOJ [VIDEO] by Amber Athey.

Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy said on Fox News Tuesday night that the Clintons’ “entanglements” with the Department of Justice run much deeper than the average viewer may know.

On Fox News’ “The Story,” Gowdy cryptically told host Martha McCallum that he believes “history will be much kinder to Jim Comey in that July press conference than the Democrats were.”

“I think he had access to information that, because he is a stand-up guy he’s not gonna disseminate classified information (though God knows everybody else is)…so all your viewers see is this meeting on the tarmac,” he explained.

“Jim Comey had access to additional information that I am convinced left him with no other choice but to make the decision he made in July,” Gowdy said.

McCallum asked if he was implying that Comey was pressured into clearing Clinton of all wrongdoing.

“No…he wanted to safeguard the integrity of the investigation, the integrity of the process, and I probably ought to just leave it right there,” Gowdy replied.

“Trust me when I tell you this, Martha — I know what it was and I have been a critic of James Comey in the past. But he made the only decision he could have made with respect to appropriating that decision away from the Department of Justice and making the decision himself.”

“I only take away from that that you are suggesting that there were more entanglements between the Clintons and perhaps the Justice Department than everyone understands,” McCallum guessed.

“You’re very perceptive,” Gowdy confirmed.

    See, this is what I don’t like about GOPErs. Democrats would have called out collusion. Gowdy, even now, with a Republican president, still won’t pull the trigger on anything dealing with Democrats. Instead, Gowdy is now demanding an investigation of the BS with Comey.

    They never called out Hillarys collusion with the Justice dept.

    “I tell ya I was this close”…. the story of Trey Gowdy’s life….

    Democrats would have called out collusion if a Republican were colluding. Spineless GOPE.
