Trey Gowdy: Comey has lost his mind


TO HAPPEN FROM THE BEGINNING ON THE HOUSE SIDE. TONIGHT THE COUNT IS AT 28 OF THE 31 DEMOCRATS THAT WE ABOUT BEEN TALKING ABOUT IN THE TRUMP DISTRICTS ARE GOING TO VOTE YES AND THEY ARE STILL TALLYING UP TO FINAL 21. LET’S BRING IN TREY GOWDY FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR, GOOD EVENING. GOOD TO HAVE YOU HERE.>>GOOD EVENING. HOW ARE YOU?>>WHAT DID YOU THINK OF SUSAN JASLOW.>>I THOUGHT SHE WAS FANTASTIC. I WISH EVERYBODY IN PUBLIC OFFICE COULD HEAR HOW NORMAL AVERAGE, REASONABLE PEOPLE THINK AND FEEL. I THOUGHT SHE WAS GREAT.>>Martha: SHE SAID PEOPLE NEED TO PLAY NICE AND LET VOTERS DECIDE WHO THE PRESIDENT IS GOING TO BE DO YOU THINK THAT IDEA RESONATES AT ALL ON CAPITOL HILL ON THE HOUSE SIDE?>>OH, I THINK THEY HAVE A LOT MORE OF A BASE ANALYSIS THAN THAT. HERE’S THE ANALYSIS. IF I VOTE NOT TO IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP, I’M GOING TO GET A PRIMARY OPPONENT AND I’M GUARANTEED TO LOSE. IF I VOTE WITH MY PARTY I’M GOING TO GET A REALLY STRONG GENERAL ELECTION OPPONENT BUT I MIGHT WIN. SO FOR DEMOCRATS IN TRUMP DISTRICTS, THEIR DILEMMA. IS DO I LOSE IN THE SPRING FOR SURE OR DO I MAYBE LOSE IN THE FALL WHEN IT’S PRETTY AND THERE IS COLLEGE FOOTBALL AND OTHER THINGS TO MITIGATE MY GRIEF. BUT THEY ARE GUARANTEED TO LOADS IF THEY BREAK. IF THEY BREAK WITH THEIR PARTY, THEY ARE GUARANTEED TO LOSE IN THEIR PRIMARY.>>Martha: DO YOU THINK POLITICALLY OVERALL, HOW DO YOU THINK THIS SORTS OUT? DO DEMOCRATS HOLD THE HOUSE AFTER THIS?>>YEAH. KEVIN McCARTHY IS A PROLIFIC FUND RAIDSER. HE I’M BIASED I LIKE HIM A LOT. HE IS RECRUITING GOOD CANDIDATES SO IS ALYSSA STEFANIK. IT’S AN UPHILL BATTLE TO FLIP THAT MANY SEATS. WE DO HOLD THE SENATE AND AS YOU AND I HAVE DISCUSSED IN THE PAST, I THINK ALL OF THIS IS ABOUT FLIPPING THE SENATE. I THINK IT’S ABOUT CHUCK SCHUMER AND NANCY PELOSI TRYING TO NEUTER A SECOND DONALD TRUMP TERM. BECAUSE THERE IS NOT A CHANCE IN HELL HE IS GOING TO BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE. WHY ARE WE GOING THROUGH THIS EXERCISE IF WE KNOW HE IS GOING TO BE ON THE BALLOT IN 2020.>>Martha: LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT WHAT CHUCK SCHUMER SAID TODAY. HE SAID HE WAS APPALLED THAT MITCH McCONNELL SAID HE WAS IMPARTIAL IN THIS PROCESS. MITCH MIC COUNCIL SAID IT’S A POLITICAL PROCESS IT’S NOT A COURT OF LAW. HE SCHUMER SAID IT’S UNBELIEVABLE. WE HAVE TO BE ABLE TO BRING IN WITNESSES. WE WANT MULVANEY, WE WANT BOLTON AND TWO OTHER MEN ASSOCIATED WITH THEM. WHAT DO YOU SAY?>>THAT’S WHAT YOU DO DURING THE INVESTIGATION. AND ADAM SCHIFF AND JERRY NADLER, IF THEY REALLY FELT STRONGLY ABOUT BOLTON AND MULVANEY, THEY COULD HAVE GONE TO COURT. WHAT THEY FELT MOST STRONGLY ABOUT WAS HURRYING THROUGH THIS BECAUSE THEY ARE BEING GOVERNED BY CALENDAR. THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, MARTHA, CALLED MORE IMPEACHMENT WITNESSES FOR THE NIXON IMPEACHMENT THAN THEY DID THE TRUMP IMPEACHMENT. THEY CALLED JOHN DEAN AND THEN THEY CALLED A COUPLE LAW PROFESSORS? NO FACT WITNESSES.>>Martha: ALL RIGHT. I WANT TO GET YOUR THOUGHT ON THIS JIM COMEY INTERVIEW THAT CHRIS WALLACE CONDUCTED WITH HIM ON SUNDAY. AND WITH REGARD TO THE FISA PROCESS AND WITH REGARD TO WHETHER OR NOT THESE WERE ERRORS, MISTAKES, OR SOMETHING MORE, WATCH THIS.>>Chris: GIVEN THE REPEAT THE ERROR FISA PROCESS DOES ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR HAVE A POINT.>>HE DOES NOT HAVE A FACTUAL BASIS ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES THAT AGENTS ACTED IN BAD FAITH. THE FACTS JUST AREN’T THERE. FULL STOP THAT DOESN’T MAKE IT ANY LESS CONSEQUENTIAL OR ANY LESS IMPORTANT BUT THAT’S IRRESPONSIBLE STATEMENT.>>Martha: HE SAID THAT WAS IRRESPONSIBLE STATEMENT. WHAT DO YOU SAY?>>HE HAS LOST HIS MIND. HOW MANY OF THESE CLOSE CALLS WENT IN FAVOR OF PRESIDENT TRUMP?>>Martha: NONE.>>WHEN THEY CHANGED THE EMAIL, WAS IT TO HELP TRUMP OR HURT HIM? WHEN THEY PUT THE DOSSIER MATERIAL IN WAS IT TO HELP TRUMP OR HURT HIM? WHEN THEY PUT THE DNC FUNDED FUSION GPS RESEARCH MATERIAL WAS THAT TO HELP TRUMP OR HURT HIM. EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED WAS DONE TO HURT DONALD TRUMP. SO, I’M — LOOK, THIS IS THE SAME JIM COMEY WE THOUGHT IT WAS NONSENSE WE WERE LOOKING INTO IT. NOW HE HAS HAD A MEA CULPA MOMENT. IT’S TWO YEARS TOO LATE. WE REALLY COULD HAVE USED HIM DOING SOME OBJECTIVITY WHEN HE WAS AT THE FBI AND NOT TWO YEARS TOO LATE.>>Martha: YEAH. HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE, YOU KNOW, WHAT YOU JUST SAID, YOU KNOW, HOW COULD IT BE THAT ALL OF THOSE ERRORS WENT IN ONE DIRECTION AND THERE ISN’T ANYTHING, AND WHY ISN’T HE CURIOUS AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THERE WAS A POSSIBLE MOTIVE BEHIND IT?>>BECAUSE HE IS MORALLY SUPERIOR TO ME AND YOU. HE IS ALWAYS RIGHT. HE IS THE SAME JIM COMEY WHO COULDN’T ADMIT HE MESSED UP THE CLINTON INVESTIGATION. SAME JIM COMEY WHO SAID THE FBI DIDN’T GIVE A WHIFF — IT’S THE SAME JIM COMEY WHO SAID HE DIDN’T LEAK OR DO WEEVIL THINGS IN THE VERY DOCUMENT HE LEAKED. THAT’S THE JIM COMEY WE ARE TALKING ABOUT. ABOUT.MARCH TREY GOWDY ALWAYS GOOD TO SEE YOU.>>Martha: ADMIT THEY ARE — PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS A PRETTY GOOD CHANCE OF WINNING. DONNA BRAZILE ON THE NEW POLLS AND WHETHER THAT FEAR FOR HER PARTY IS REAL. COMING UP NEXT.
