New York Senator Chuck Schumer has launched a movement to force Rep. Devin Nunes to step down from the House Intelligence Committee. South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, however, isn’t about to let Schumer get away with this.
Scumer began this ridiculous movement after Nunes spoke out to say that he has seen evidence that President Donald Trump was indeed wiretapped by Barack Obama last year.
“Chairman Nunes is falling down on the job and seems to be more interested in protecting the president than in seeking the truth,” Schumer explained. “You cannot have the person in charge of an impartial investigation be partial to one side. It’s an inherent contradiction. Without further ado, Speaker Ryan should replace Chairman Nunes.”
This could not be more ridiculous, since Schumer himself is clearly very partial to “one side.” Gowdy quickly spoke out to point out the hypocrisy of what Schumer said.
“I just love it when Senator Schumer gives Republicans advice on what we ought to do,” Gowdy responded. “Devin is doing exactly what the chairman ought to do. When you have a source that has information, you handle the information safely, securely, which is exactly what he did.”
“I wish Senator Schumer and some of the other Democrats would be more interested in authenticity and the reliability of the underlying data and not the means by which it was acquired,” Gowdy continued. “Whether it was the White House or Waffle House, what difference does it make if the information is reliable and authentic? It just so happens that Devin had to do it this way. So we’re not going to take advice from Chuck Schumer on who our chairpeople ought to be.”
