Rep. Trey Gowdy Just Shredded Schumer For Sessions/Whitaker Comments

Published

on

South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy just slammed Chuck Schumer over his Sessions/Whitaker comments. And as usual, it was epic. On “Special Report With Bret Baier,” Gowdy laid into Schumer over his take on the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Gowdy made it clear that Whitaker would follow the law and could not just go rogue on Mueller. Schumer claimed that Whitaker would limit the scope of the Mueller investigation which is patently untrue. The Daily Caller has more on this development:

South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy fired back at Senator Chuck Schumer on “Special Report With Bret Baier” for his comments about President Donald Trump’s decision to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday.

Trump requested and accepted Sessions’ resignation on Tuesday. The president publicly announced the decision on Twitter.

“We are pleased to announce that Matthew G. Whitaker, Chief of Staff to Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice, will become our new Acting Attorney General of the United States,” he tweeted. “He will serve our Country well. We thank Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his service, and wish him well! A permanent replacement will be nominated at a later date.”

WATCH:

The segment began with Baier airing a clip of Schumer expressing concern that Whitaker would limit the scope of the Mueller investigation.

“Every prosecutor has jurisdictional boundaries. I don’t know a single prosecutor that does not. Mueller’s jurisdictional boundaries were set by Rod Rosenstein in the memo you have seen and they were altered, amended in the memo that we have not seen. But there has never been a prosecutor that just had unfettered power to go investigate whatever the heck he or she wanted to do,” Gowdy stated in response to Schumer.

“If you’re a state prosecutor you can’t investigate federal crimes. If you’re in New York, you can’t investigate things in Idaho. So the notion that we are going to create a special counsel that has no boss, no jurisdictional strictures at all is just typical Chuck Schumer and I think it’s why so few people take them seriously,” he continued.

Baier responded, “What about the deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein in his role here? One would’ve assumed that the deputy, that’s why he’s the deputy if the attorney general is not there, he would step in as acting.”

Gowdy added, “These are interesting times that we are in. Rod Rosenstein, I was ready to question him, I had 37 pages worth of questions for him, Bret, a couple weeks ago. Of course, he is alleged to have wanted to vote the 25th Amendment and question the president’s fitness for office, so I’m not sure that would’ve been the right pick.”

BREAKING: CorruptBrenda Snipes Is OUT – And So Is Her Closet FULL Of Skeletons

Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes reportedly submitted her resignation on Sunday, just hours after Florida’s election recounts had been finalized.

“It is true. She did send it,” Burnadette Norris-Weeks stated, an attorney who works as counsel to the Supervisor of Elections Office, according to the Sun Sentinel. Norris-Weeks also claimed to have seen Snipes resignation letter and said it cited a desire to spend more time with her family as the reason for her resignation.

Snipes has faced heavy scrutiny for her handling of the midterm elections that took place nearly two weeks ago, even though the results in Florida were only finalized Sunday. The Florida Senate race was called for Republican Rick Scott on election night. But, election officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties were still adding votes, which is a violation of Florida reporting law. In the days following the election, she defied a judge’s orders and then allegedly mixed up illegal ballots with good ones, which she later refuted.

Many conservatives pointed out Snipes’ murky history, if not illegal acts, on the job and called for her to be removed from her position.

“You look at her past, she’s a disaster,” President Donald Trump said to The Daily Caller last week.

“Even with me. I won Florida and — you remember? That area, Broward, didn’t come in,” Trump said of Broward County and Snipes. “You can only put in so many votes, although she may change that system.”

Snipes was originally appointed to the position back in 2003 by then-Gov. Jeb Bush. The former governor called for her to be “removed from office” last week.

“There is no question that Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes failed to comply with Florida law on multiple counts, undermining Floridians’ confidence in our electoral process. Supervisor Snipes should be removed from her office following the recounts,” he tweeted.

Republican Gov. Rick Scott defeated Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson in the Florida Senate race. Nelson finally conceded Sunday after both a machine and hand recount. Former Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis also defeated Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum on Saturday after the race went to a recount.

Trump Gives Adam Schiff New Nickname And He Is Fuming

President Donald Trump has now given Democrat California Rep. Adam Schiff his own nickname.

In a tweet on Sunday the president referred to the congressman, who has been a thorn in his side, as “Little Adam Schitt.”

Go ahead. Say it aloud.

The tweet came after Rep. Schiff appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and said that Democrats would challenge the president’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker as the interim attorney general, The Hill reported.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif), the likely next chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday that Democrats will challenge the appointment of new acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker.

“Yes and yes,” Schiff told ABC’s “This Week” when asked if Democrats would push back against Whitaker’s appointment and if he is still concerned that he poses a threat to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling and alleged collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Moscow.

“I think the appointment is unconstitutional,” Schiff said, adding that Whitaker’s appointment has to be subject to Senate confirmation.

“But it’s also in conflict with a more specific statute,” he said. “There’s a succession statute for the Justice Department, which makes it different from other departments.”

Schiff said that succession statute cannot be preempted by presidential appointment.

“So it’s a flawed appointment, but the biggest flaw from my point of view is that he was chosen for the purpose of interfering with the Mueller investigation,” Schiff said, echoing claims of other Democrats.

Last year, Whitaker criticized the Mueller probe and explained how it could be undercut by strategies such as limiting its funding.

Reports indicate that Mueller is very close to filing his final report from his investigation.

Schiff warned on Sunday that Democrats will be keeping a very close eye on Whitaker.

“He needs to know that if he takes any action to curb what Mr. Mueller does, we’ll find out about it. We’ll expose it,” Schiff said.

Schiff did not take kindly to his new name.
