Comey's private memos

Representative Trey Gowdy said today that James Comey’s private memos would be defense exhibit A in any obstruction case against the President. Representative Gowdy has announced that he will not be running for re-election. He is a former Prosecutor

In Gowdy’s retirement announcement it was clear that he wanted out of Washington and felt his skills are better utilized as a prosecutor.

“There is a time to come and a time to go. This is the right time, for me, to leave politics and return to the justice system,” he said.

“Whatever skills I may have are better utilized in a courtroom than in Congress, and I enjoy our justice system more than our political system,” he said.

“These Comey memos are defense exhibit A in an obstruction of justice. I’ve read them, very few members of Congress have, and no one outside of Congress has read the Comey memos, Representative (SC) Gowdy said on Fox News.

“I think they ought to be released. I think they ought to be released publicly, but they certainly ought to be released to Congress. They would be defense exhibit A in a obstruction of justice prosecution,” he said.

 

About the dossier in particular, Mr. Comey said in an upcoming interview with ABC News that he did not share that the document was funded by Mr. Trump’s political opponents because it wasn’t relevant to his job of telling the president that the FBI had the information.

Gowdy said that the bigger issue is that the FBI also did not tell the FISA court — a top-secret court that issues surveillance warrants — when requesting the warrant.

“It’s certainly a relevant fact, whether or not he should’ve told the president. The FBI certainly should’ve told the FISA court. That’s my bigger concern is they didn’t tell the folks who authorized the warrant. It’s a really relevant fact,” Representative  Gowdy said.

“I think it would’ve been nice to tell the person who was the subject of the dossier, also,” he added.
