Tucker Carlson Grills Deep State Simp Trey Gowdy for Either Being Too Cowardly to Push Back Against the Coup, Or Being a Covert Active Participant

"My mistake was relying on the word of the FBI," he says.

Mistake, singular.

Given that the FBI is now proven to have acted corruptly and lawlessly throughout this -- well, that's sort of a big mistake, isn't it, Deep State Simp?


Gowdy insists that his previous spin on behalf of the Deep State -- in which he contradicted Trump's claim (proven true) that the entire coup attempt was a "witch hunt" -- was right at the time and is still right.

He bases this claim on the dubious claim that when Gowdy denied that the Mueller probe was a "witch hunt," he only meant that it was not a witch hunt with respect to Russian interference.

Obviously the thing that Democrats -- and their Republican silent partners -- were actually probing, and which they actually cared about, was that Trump was an agent of Putin. And obviously, when Gowdy said that the probe was not a "witch hunt," he was taken to mean -- and did in fact mean -- that Trump might in fact be an agent of Putin.

But now he claims, oh no, I just meant that Russia Is Bad Or Whatever.

And then Carlson presses him on what evidence exists that Russia hacked the DNC servers -- and Gowdy sheepishly admits none, because the FBI -- whom he has previously vouched for -- refused to even ask to see the allegedly hacked servers.

I'm getting very fucking tired of watching people with no integrity or honor themselves vouching for the integrity and honor of fucking government operatives.

Video below.

Mollie Hemingway linked this old article of hers, from 2018: Trey Gowdy Didnít Even See Documents He Claims Exonerate FBI On Spygate: Reports.

Gowdy's curious exoneration of the FBI caught many by surprise given his work on the previous HPSCI report that found widespread abuse of surveillance procedures targeting the Trump campaign.

"I am even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got," Gowdy said in an interview with Fox News Channelís Martha MacCallum on Tuesday night.

The next morning on CBS News, co-host John Dickerson asked Gowdy, "So you looked at this and you said what the FBI was doing was kosher, why does the president keep saying what heís saying when he knows better?"

"I don't know," Gowdy responded.

During the interview, however, Gowdy seemed confused or mistaken about simple facts related to the investigation.

But now he's Born Again Hard as a warrior, huh? And a huge defender of Devin Nunes, huh?

Note that Nunes immediately objected that the FBI, which of course was hiding documents, was refusing to satisfy a Congressional subpeona, substituting instead a mere briefing (and a dishonest one designed to hide the truth).

And what did Gowdy do?

He immediately went out and peddled the FBI line. Despite the FBI refusing to show him subpeonaed documents.

Another fraud working for the Deep State and the corporate interests instead of his actual voters -- so of course Paul Ryan, Chris Wallace, and the Murdoch Boys figured he had earned a FoxNews contributor contract.

It's just fucking amazing that these people all talk like world beaters on FoxNews and then meekly roll over for -- or actively assist -- the Democrats when performing their actual jobs as elected representatives and senators.

When the fuck are GOP voters going to get hip to this con? Are they as stupid as the leftwing media says?


Update: Matt Gaetz, a former colleague of Gowdy's, recently called him out. I added that video.



Thanks to rhomboid for mentioning Schlichter's joke in the comments.

Update: Why did Trey Gowdy refuse to subpoena key coupists?

The number one question I get asked from Americans is, why no one has gone to jail and been held accountable? Unfortunately, when Nunes and Meadows and Jordan and I wanted subpoena power, it was Paul Ryan and Trey Gowdy that wouldn't give us that subpoena power.

Democrats sent out hundreds of subpoenas. When we had control and could have run this to ground in 2017 --

HANNITY: We made a mistake?

GAETZ: -- we didn't send out a single subpoena, not one, and that's a failure of our Republican leadership.

HANNITY: Should have sent them out.

More Failure Theater by the Failure Theater Players.

Thanks to chique d'Epstein for the reminder.

Gaetz spoke again about this on Seb Gorka yesterday. Skip to 3:00. He really cooks Gowdy and Paul Ryan as de facto Democrats and Deep State operators.

Gaetz on Gowdy: "He's got all the answers now, now that he's a Fox News contributor."
