Retiring Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) mocked Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) for their “newfound embrace of transparency” that magically appeared after the Democrats won the House majority on Election Day and earned the right to chair key investigative committees come January.
Gowdy scoffed at Cummings’ desire for “transparency” while also scolding Schiff for his plans.
“Well, I don’t know what he means by ‘everything.’ Does that mean divulge classified information? Does it mean divulge grand jury material? I hope not,” Gowdy said.
